I was in Hobby Lobby today (no surprise there) and I saw an older man plunk down $300+ in cash for a Cricut Expression. I nearly made a comment like “I’m coming to your house for Christmas” but kept my mouth shut and just sighed wishing someone was buying me one. Over the weekend I had tinkered around on Ebay, bidding away for various Cricuts. I came very close to winning one but then felt relieved that I didn’t because I was still unsure about spending such a big amount of money.
Then tonight on a whim, I decided to check out Ebay again. I found a brand new Cricut Create with a Don Juan Cartridge included with the auction ending in like 15 minutes. So…………….I put in my bid at $106 as my maximum bid. Not sure why I chose that number. Maybe because I had just lost a bid on the same machine by only being willing to pay $105. It sold for $106. Second guessing myself…………….again (boy is this getting old!) I checked Ebays policies on canceling a bid. Realizing I had no legit reason, I just sat and watched as time ran out. And lo and behold, I WON! 86 bucks!!!!!!! Now I know that the Cricut Expression is the latest model but I think this one is perfect for me. I’m comfortable with that price and I can.not.wait. to get it in the mail and give it a whirl!
Now, the question is…….what cartridge should I buy first? Any suggestions?
