All these years I’ve resisted getting an electronic die cutting machine, heck I don’t even have a manual one. Well, as I have periodically in the past, I had once again became intrigued by the Cricut. Fortunately (or unfortunately) this fascination happened in the weeks leading up to Black Friday. Then, a store I normally avoid at almost all costs – unless I’m trying to save a certain non-profit organization money, put the one I wanted on sale at an unbelieveable price on Black Friday. Needless to say, I violated my own Black Friday shopping rules – I set an alarm and got to a store a little ahead of the start time. My (and my hubby’s) efforts were handsomly rewarded with a Cricut Expression.
Now, let me back up to Thanksgiving Day so I can explain this picture – I did go visit my local craft store when they opened because I heard they were having a similar sale through a black friday website. They posted a sale flyer that was not running here. But, after getting to the store, I saw the original Cricut on sale. I told my hubby I could live with the smaller machine to save the green – but did not realize until I got it home that it did not cut items as small. So, for about a day we had two Cricuts in the house!
