My Gypsy is Cracked!!
I am just sick!! My Gypsy screen has a crack in it and has to go to PC. I am telling her she is going to the "spa" so don't ruin the surprise for her!! I took off her pretty outfit and she looks so skinny and naked!!
I carry my G in my purse all the time. I have been doing this since November, before that she was in my hands (he he). I have been super gentle with her when plugging her into the cricut and the charger. I have protected her screen and her body. Hindsight is 20/20 and I should have bought her a separate purse or carrier. Gee maybe I should have used the quilted one that Vivian made for me!! Old habits are hard to break!! Last night I saw the crack and I think my heart stopped for a minute!
Well, I was so sad this morning that one of my daycare moms asked me if I was ok. I told her about my Gypsy screen. She is bummed for me as I have used my G to help her with a school project now and then (she is a teacher).
I was one of the lucky ones who did get asked to test the new Gypsy release. I can't say much about the new release other than you will LOVE it!!! I originally received a rejection letter and was really bummed. I then got a different email with the link for the test sinc. I was so excited, then nervous. I mean what if I don't really discover anything?!? This was such a great opportunity until last night! I had to send an email with my bad news ~ no more test help from me :o(
At least tomorrow is Thursday.....
So, I call PC today and fully expect to have to pay for the repair. After all, I broke the screen ~ it was not a defect. The PC service rep told me she thought it was covered. As she was checking she noticed some email correspondence (my ongoing feedback from the test) and asked if I was a tester and if I sent in an email about my cracked screen. I said that I did ~ to let PC know I would not be of any help until my screen was fixed.
After she put me on hold, she told me to pack her up and they would get her fixed up ASAP so I could continue to help test!! After all I have done to help PC sell 30+ Gypsys (at Michaels) and my tiny role of testing, I feel like I am being repaid 1,000 times over!!!
I am going to miss my G!! I might need to borrow one from a friend or even pick up DS since I don't remember how to use my Cricut without my Gypsy anymore!
I am so grateful to Pam for recommending that we save our files to our computer!! I did this recently so I will only lose about 3 files.
I also am a guest designer for Sassy soon and I have already cut out that project and photographed my Gypsy screens!!! I might have to get creative for Pam's designer spot next month. Cross your fingers that my G comes back soon!!
