A Journal page and a new scanner/printer

I guess I finally crammed the last unacceptable item into my scanner/printer and really did it in this time. I loved my scanner/printer. It was a Lexmark and was so very forgiving when it came to my scanning and printing needs for these past years. I need machines I can abuse ... a sewing machine that will sew leather, cardboard and the occasional window screen .... a printer that will at least attempt to print on aluminum foil, fabric and sandpaper ... a scanner bed that will accommodate large 3 dimensional items and can hold up to dried paint being scrapped off with a razor blade. I do require my machines to push the limits at times. I wanted to replace my printer with exact same model again, but of course it isn't made anymore. I had to settle for a new model Lexmark with all the bells and whistles that I really don't want. This model scans, copies, faxes and I believe it will toast and probably iron clothing with an additional attachment. I just want the basics, but a work horse. Perhaps it just needs some tweaking, but I am less than pleased with the scanning results so far. I suppose it's just that I find new and improved replacement machines of any type require far too much brain power to learn ... sort of like our new TV that I can't figure out how to turn on.

Hey! I love your journal pages. I went from a lexmark(older), and I loved it, but it got to where the ink was SO HARD TO FIND, and expensive to boot.

This time I bought a Lexmark, took it back--bought an HP, took it back, and finally found nirvana with an Epson Stylus. It's such a beautiful, wonderful machine. Good luck with your new Lexie!!

I was reading the journal page-and sorry the festival hasn't done well...The economy is horrible, and nothing is doing well right now. I sell antiques at our local town flea market once a month, and sells have been bad. Labor day is suppose to be our biggest month, but I am just praying that I made a thousand this weekend. (last year, I made almost $2000 for 3 days!)let's just cross our fingers and pray that it gets better!!
Hugs!
Suzan
