DeeAnn- I can completely relate because I too have Lupus among other problems. We were worried for a while I also had M.S, but finally ruled that out but have a lot of the same symptoms. Haven't been doing well either. Hang in there.
Lori- I am at the opposite end of State from you and have the same problem.
I would have loved to have been able to (try out) a machine so I would know better which one to go with for my needs. Gale is right, there are fantastic videos to watch that are very helpful, but I ended up getting frustrated because of so much back and forth opinions, and basically , threw my hands up and just bought a used Cricut Create online and thankfully it has been great! I would still like to get a print and cut machine though. I probably will eventually. But I have no complaints with myCricut so far.
