The NEW E2, Prayers for the South, and more.

Where is MELANIE MASON?? Come on down! You are the next WInner of a springtime Paper Pad :) (Love my Price Is Right voice don't you :)
Email me your shipping address and I will get it right out!!!
I am SO excited- Look what just arrived on my doorstep- 5 days earlier than expected might I add!!!
The new E2. It"s a little smaller than my Expression and a lot smaller than my Imagine.
Now I know there are a lot who don't live Provo Craft and some who are boycotting them. But I will be honest, I have never had a problem with them personally.
I have had to talk to Customer Service a couple times- once a rewards certificate missing and once about a replacement mat,(both of which I got in th email in just a few days)  but other than that, my machines have been used for 5-10 hours every single day for over 2 years and thank the good Lord, I haven't had issues. I am in the process of researching other commerical die cutters out there and will be purchasing one of those in the near future, but with my library of carts, I won't even go into that as I might get sick: ), I can't justify not using something that works for me on the basis of others dealings with the company.
So excited to see the new features and get it hooked up to my gypsy :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend.
We gave away a scholarship at my hometown high school FFA Banquet in my brother's memory like we always do. Then, the kids raised $1300 for Matt"s Scholarship fund. 2 kids received the Matt Monroe Star Greenhand award as well.
It's always bittersweet. I know he is proud of us, but so much of me wants him here and the words after his name during the presentation not to be "memorial".
We have 2 more scholarships to give in his memory this year. One for a high school football player and for a member of their church youth group.
I'm glad these kids will get the chance to go to school and further their education. I am  happy to know our family has something to do with that in honor of our missing part.
There is healing in helpong others.

On that note- so many prayers for our friends in the areas affected by these awful storms. The Ohio River here in Louisville has been a mess and business and offices evacuated and closed. BUT, that is nothing to what our dear friends to the south are dealing with. God bless you as you grieve loss of loved ones, praises as new survivors are found, and prayers for a brighter future my friends!

How fun for you to have a new toy to play with! I understand about the machine and carts. I'm not buying any more PC stuff if I can help it, but I am still using my baby bug and made a card using 3 different carts just last night. What a wonderful legacy to have the scholarship in your brother's name, but of course it would be better if he were here. ((HUGS)) to you and your family!
