cricut crazy

well, i got sucked into the cricut craze…  something i didn’t imagine would ever happen.  a few years ago, when deciding on a cutting machine, i went with the xyron wishblade.  while the initial cost was significantly more, what attracted me to it was that after buying the machine, i would never had to spend another dime on cartridges, files, etc.  it can cut letters from any TTF installed on the computer, and i’m tech/art-savvy enough to create .gsd files for just about anything else i would want to cut.

enter the michaels and joann black friday ads…  joann had the basic cricut advertised for $75.  for $75 (plus the $5,000 or so i will probably spend on cartridges later on 8-} ) i decided to take the plunge.  i went to michaels thursday evening to pick up some cartridges, and there i found they had the same machine on sale for $70.  needless to say, it came home with me, along with two cartridges.  yesterday afternoon, i ordered three more cartridges online from somewhere else.

let the insanity begin…
