Resistance is Futile

Resistance is futileAll 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!

    Help! The larger CriCut doesn’t cut things as small, so you kept the smaller Cricut so you could cut larger things? “I just don’t get it,” she said, slowly shaking her head trying to clear some room in an attempt to grasp this…

    Ironically the small machine cuts items down to 1″ and the large machine cuts things down to 1/4″.
