Hmmmm! This is a good question, I have really been trying to evaluate my purchases lately when it comes to crafting products. It seems that every new product that comes out I have an, "I'VE GOTTA HAVE IT" mentality. Well I'm working on it but for now I'll share with you my new purchases, I think one was a whim and the other was an investment. I will definitely be using them both.
I'll start with the whim ( I think ) So there was this really good deal on a Teacup and Saucer die cut by Sizzix, Oh the possibilities and it is soooo cute...Mother's day right around the corner, "I'VE GOTTA HAVE IT." Well one thing I know for sure is that I am NOT a hoarder, I broke open the package right away and to my dismay I needed and extender plate...Waaaaahhhh!!! luckily for me the Michael's close to me had one and I literally grabbed my homeschooling 7yr old and rushed to the store to get it. I got back home and I commenced to a wonderful time of making my little tea cups and here they are:
Okay and here is the biggie!!!!!!!!!!! Now I must say that I will classify this as an investment. I purchased the Cricut Expression II Anniversary Edition. This cricut is loaded with all kinds of good stuff, several new features: 4 preloaded cartridges ( all of which I don't have) and a touch screen. I am so excited I can't wait to get it. I have a unique gift and it is an internal UPS radar, I can just feel them coming from miles away. Seriously...I get this little tingle and an aura that say's they are around the corner :-).
