WOOHOO! My Zing order was processed!

So that means, it should ship out soon. YAY!!! I've been saving my pennies for a really long time to buy one of these babies. What is a Zing you ask? Well, its like a Cricut, but only 1000 times better and on steroids. It will cut true 12x12 and all sorts of media - including aluminum from soda/beer cans, chipboard, balsa wood. I have been putting away a little bit here and there for about 2 years now and finally had enough saved up to order one last month. I can't wait until it gets here. Here are a couple youtube videos if you want to see what it can do...


skip ahead - don't know why they show the machine working for so long:






I have an old Craft Robo that does about the same thing, but its dieing and won't cut properly anymore after 7 years. It didn't cut heavy materials or 12x12, but I've always been able to work around that. If it didn't stop cutting properly, I would probably use it until it burnt up and fell apart into little pieces. I still may be able to get it working again - I'll take it apart and mess with the step motor and clean it to see its a mechanical problem. It may even be that the motherboard or the usb connector is messed up too.

Anyway! I'm excited. smiley

you will absolutely love your zing. I have had mine for about a year now.. I have a craft robo, cricut, Klik N Kut XL, Craftwell ECraft, and now my zing... Out of all of them I love my zing the best. Electronic Cutting machines have come a long way in the past several years! The only reason I stopped using my KNK XL is because the cable that you need to use with Windows 7 kept dying on me and instead of replacing the cable so often I decided to upgrade. I am giving my XL to my son to use with an XP machine. Any how you are going to love it..

wow, gratz Cat. We can talk to us everything about it later!

Wow, that sounds so cool Cat!

I'm like a kid before Christmas. I just got the email today that my Zing was shipped. It will be here next week. I can hardly wait. I have a week to re-org my craft room. I wonder if hubby will help me move my desk & book cases around - probably not...

So how's the zing treating u Cat?

I'm really bad... I've had it 2 weeks now and haven't had a chance to cut anything with it. I've been so busy trying to get my website up and running I haven't had a chance to move things around to make space on my desk for it. Hubby is off this week so he's going to help me with my desk and computer so I can get it hooked up.

Yay! I had a Cameo for awhile but sold it. smiley
