2021.12.03 23:19 lillithayn Anxiety over Cameo vs Cricut
I need some serious help you guys. I've been looking for a machine to be able to cut wood, make stickers, and cut fabric patterns for sewing.
After god knows how long of debating it, I finally bought the Cricut Maker when it went on sale. I wanted to get the Maker 3 but I didn't have the money. Tbh I didn't even really have the money to buy the Maker.
Long story short my partner and I live with my parents. I have a slew of health issues that keep me from being able to work a normal job. Because of that I make my money crafting from home and selling either locally or online. My mom is also stay at home due to her health, which is why we live with my parents in the first place (aside from money). It has been an awesome bonding experience to be able to stay home and do this with her.
Unfortunately due to Covid my dad lost his job. Around the same time my cat was diagnosed with hepatic lipidosis. We spent what little savings we had trying to keep the roof over our head and taking my cat to the vets. She passed away in my arms and I never got over it. I can't have kids and I considered her my baby. I had her for almost 15 years..
Among all this we were still struggling to stay afloat and had to sell a lot of our stuff to survive. I was very depressed and had stopped leaving bed. I felt like a burden. I felt useless. I also suffered the loss of my rabbit within this timeframe due to a botched neutering. Before Covid hit my grandma passed away. I still wasn't over that and everything just became too much.
Selfishly I decided to kill myself, and in a split second decision I still regret, I sold all my crafting stuff.. For whatever reason I didn't kill myself that day, I don't know why, those days were a blur to me and still I have a hard time piecing together what happened.
It took a while but we finally got back on our feet. My dad is working again. It has taken a long time for me to recover, but I have started crafting again.
So needless to say being able to buy this machine was a big deal for me. I also bought the Cricut Easy Press 2 (9x9).
I was so excited.... Then my anxiety hit me. I started doing research. Then I started panicking. I started reading complaints about cricut and how great the cameo was and that it was also cheaper. I looked at other heat transfer presses and found ones with multiple attachments allowing me to do flat small surfaces, large surfaces, round surfaces, and more, for just a little more cash.
I quickly looked up to see if I could return the cricut machines. My heart fell upon seeing all the issues people had with returning their machines. Something about only being able to return five days after purchase, not from the actual delivery date. My cricut machines arent even here yet and its already been 3 days since i purchased.
Then I read about people being made to pay to return everything. That if anything was opened at all it couldn't be returned, disallowing me from making an informed decision after using it a few times.
I also saw the Cameo Pro has a bigger surface area and a better studio for people who make their own designs (which is what I do) and that it's a one time purchase rather than a membership. That the cricut can't even be used without internet access or if their server is down.
The only advantage I see with the cricut is the library of sewing patterns.
At that point I thought my decision was clear; return the Maker and the Easy Press, buy the Cameo 4 Pro and the 11-in-1 heat transfer machine.
Then I started looking at buying the Cameo 4 Pro. I saw bad reviews on Michaels and some other sites about issues with cutting thicker materials and it not being able to do as many materials.
I started feeling doubt (and even more anxiety).
"What about the Maker 3" I thought, but it still has the online issues and a design studio that may not suit me.
I started seeing stuff about Brother and other machines. I got even more overwhelmed.
I don't know what to do. I need help. I feel so stupid for this affecting me so much but money is so precious right now and I don't want to be stuck with a machine that doesn't do what I need it to.
- What's better for me; Maker, Maker 3, Cameo 4 Pro, or something else? I need something that can cut fabric, wood, sticker sheets, foam, and transfer vinyl. I need something that I can use offline and be able to use my programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)
- My fiance is trying to finance a Glowforge for me, would that be all I need? Can it do what the Cameo or Maker can?
- Can anyone suggest a decent yet affordable printer to do sublimation and stickers and stuff?
-- Do I need a different printer for sublimation and another for stickers and photos?
-Can anyone suggest a decent, affordable heat transfer machine with different parts that can do cups, mugs, flat surfaces, etc.?
Thank you all so much in advance. You have no idea how much it means.

2021.12.03 23:19 InofunI Husband forgot the tub was running and flooded our second floor
About a week ago my husband forgot to turn off the tub for about 20min and flooded our second floor. The water ran through the (heated)floor and out our kitchen and dining room ceiling (mainly where the wall between the kitchen and dining room is and at a that was previously repaired by the old owner).
So far we've: -made holes for the water to drain -pulled off any wet paint/drywall paper to let it dry -recaulked by the bathtub as that seems to be the main source of water getting through the floor.
Other than the cosmetics are there any steps we're missing? I feel like I've been living in constant fear of our ceiling collapsing all week and I just want to make sure we haven't missed anything.
No signs of mold so far and the drywall seems to have dried well.

Okay this won’t ever happen but imagine if it did. Michigan loses to Iowa in the big 10 championship game tomorrow. They no longer qualify for the playoff. Who would the best team out there be for them to play in a playoff game? Probably this Ohio State team. If we can have rematches in Conference Championships and potentially in the playoff, why not for a bowl game? OSU Michigan rematch in a bowl game would easily be the most watched bowl game.

2021.12.03 23:19 Muslimah416 I don’t know what to do anymore
I’ve concluded that I am cut off completely. The atrocious sins that I’ve committed and the path that I’ve fallen down into is so severe, so dark, and completely detached from Allah. I blame none but myself because I didn’t hold onto the rope that He granted me. I’m a lost soul yet again. I am more lost than I was before I converted, and now I will continue to sink deeper into this hole because I’ve committed unforgivable sins. I am filth. I have proven to Him just how disworthy I was of His guidance, I have proven to Him just how ungrateful I was for His bounties He granted me, I am literally in a hole of sins. The sins I have committed were so great, that it involved the rights of other people, not only that, but the evidences of the sins I committed will be continuously against me especially in my grave. I committed the type of sins that will be continued over and over because I was heedless and stupid. Yes Allah forgives. But the accumulation of the sins I’ve committed will deem that His mercy can’t be granted for somebody like myself. I still contemplate suicide, I still contemplate and think about how much I have continuously harmed myself and people around me. I didn’t follow His guidance and now I am astray with no means to even go back onto His path. The door to tawbah is shut closed for me.

2021.12.03 23:19 chyld989 No play button in Android app
While I'm on vacation I figured I'd try xCloud for the first time without a controller and I'm finding that there's no way for me to start playing a game. I navigate to the game's screen and my only option is the Install To button. I even made sure I choose one from the Play With Touch section (Hades).
My fiancée goes to bed earlier than I do so I was hoping to get an hour of gaming each night, but obviously can't do that if I can't start the games. Any thoughts?
