cutting machine

Crafty question. Can you love and hate something at the same time?  I love my Silhouette and also hate it.  Maybe I just love the idea of my cutting machine. To me a cutting machine is one that cuts what you want. When you want. Out of what you want.  Mine does not, from the time I first bought it I have never gotten a perfect cut.  I only have the original machine and don't attempt to cut anything stronger than cardstock.
   My dilemma is do I go with this companies new machine or do I go with another company.  I know that I don't want a Cricut. Sorry just like the idea of jpegs. I have been entertaining the idea of a Gazelle by Bosskuts. If any of you own these machines. Let me know what you think of them. Or if you know of any others that would cut everything from vinyl to chipboard.

New paper stacks

Today I got the DCWV Mariposa and the Black Currant stacks at Joanns.. These are the first paper stacks that I have purchased. I really don't want to cut into them.  The next are going to be Tim Holtz or Graphic 45. Which  is a hard choice other than Michaels has Tim Holtz and I  have coupons.
