READER WARNING: There is nothing funny about this post. The only people laughing were TH and Sizzix as they spent my hard earned cash!
I am impatient and tenacious. And sometimes, when you mix the two you have, shall I say, a situation?
I got my first Spellbinders Nestabilities and was dying to try them out. Like 5 minutes ago. Ready to load them into my trustworthy Vagabond I quickly glanced at the directions. Solo Thin Die Adapter? Come on folks. They don’t sell Vagabond accessories at my Mike’s and the closet LLS is about an hour away. What is a girl to do? Improvise!
Bad mistake. Did I say bad mistake already? Can I say it again? Bad mistake! Hand on button I pushed an original sandwich of sorts as the machine made the most awful sounds I had ever heard. It’s working! I am a genius! Who needs the solo thin die adapter?
And then the machine stopped dead. Couldn’t be. I just pushed harder and the machine started again but everything was stuck. I’ll spare you the gory details, but it contained lots of tears, regrets and a sleepless night.
The next morning I ordered my second Vagabond and the adapter. Every time I push that button now I hold my breath, just waiting for it to get stuck again. I think I am suffering from post traumatic syndrome.
Rest in Peace dear friend. Thinking about having it cremated and putting the ashes in my scraproom. Or maybe I should just do a LO with this photo?
My new BFF. I haven't had time to ebellish, yet.
