My embosser did not work. I turned it on and it played a song and said some words that I couldn't understand. I thought that meant it was fine and tried to follow the instructions. Alas, it did not work. Eventually (the next day) I figured out that the song it played meant that things were wrong. Also the words I didn't understand meant something bad was happening with it. So, it has to go back to the manufacturer and I am not sure when I will get it back.
The good news is that it is under warranty, and the customer service person was very nice and helpful. I am confident that this will be resolved very soon. Unfortunately, it means the projects I have been planning are all on hold. It's frustrating. Especially because I don't know when I'll be able to restart.
I've heard that running a small business is hard work. Even though I have to take things slowly, I have been making great progress. This is my first real issue, so I am thankful for that. I am sure that things will work out even sooner and better than I think (I tend to worry!).
So think good thoughts for my poor embosser, and if you are wondering why I'm not talking about it, and showing what it can do, this is why.
I'll be sure to update when it comes back and works perfectly, as I'm sure it will.
