Every year for the past few years, I've decided to give myself a present for my birthday. This year I got two. :) Usually it is a trip somewhere I've never been to visit friends. Like this year, I went to Chicago for the first time (hopefully not the last!) which was so awesome. It was a great birthday present to myself.
But then last week I decided to get myself another one....a new laptop! YAY!!! (Caitlin was so happy now that I don't have to borrow her's anymore!)
It's an HP Pavillion. And it's beautiful!
I've been without a computer for almost exactly a year and so I finally was able to get one. It's so fast and sharp and awesome and it has a fingerprint scanner so I don't have to type in passwords anymore. Brilliant and cool!
So in between scrapping pages this weekend, I also played with my computer and uploaded all my documents/pictures/music from my external hard drive. So awesome. It was so handy to be able to upload pictures to the scrap site I was on while I was doing my online crop.
And I got to use my silhouette cameo for the first time. I had waited because I needed a computer that I could load the program on to. And now I have one. Yay!
The first use wasn't a complete success. :/ The mat got caught and jammed so what I was cutting got all messed up. I think part of the problem was not knowing what blade depth to set it at. The first time I cut my image out, it wasn't deep enough and so I had to re-cut it. The second time is when it jammed. Oh well. Maybe I should what the instructional DVD that comes with it. :)
So anyway, my computer is awesome and it is so nice to have one and be able to use it whenever I want. :)
Let's just say that I really know how to give gifts to myself. ;)
