So I had a crazy and wild Black Friday. I had to work. In fact, it was my 11th consecutive day-after-Thanksgiving at work! I've never taken this day off since I joined the workforce! I really don't mind! Many people have families and traditions, and I can't take a day off for the sake of taking a day off! I must save my vacation days for big trips! Would I ever escape China? I now realize the answer is no, the food lures me back, LOL!
Back to my crazy and wild Black Friday. Though I had to go to work, I did get up and went to Walmart! At 5:10 a.m., it had already sold out of the Cricut Expression Bundle at the $199 price! I foolishly stood around for over 45 minutes hoping someone would find another one in the famed "back"! A part of me was glad that I didn't have to wait in the lines. There were more people at Walmart than on the Great Wall of China! It was UNREAL!
I never really wanted the Cricut but the ladies at Scrapbook Obsessions talked me into it!!! So after disappointment at Walmart, I went to Michael's and bought the Cricut Create. They were having $29.99 catridge sale, so I bought a whole basketful. Then I talked to various people and realized that I ought to get the Cricut Expression after all!! I also found out that the catridges "Graphically speaking" and "Storybook" are for sale at Walmart but not at M's but Walmart does price matching! I rushed to M's again after work to pick up an advertisement and then only this morning went back to Walmart to get the catridges at the incredible price of $29.99 each!!
Now I'm all set, all I need is the ACTUAL CRICUT MACHINE!!! Is this crazy or what? I'm not even convinced that I need a diecut machine and yet I've come undone by some enabling and good deals!!! sigh...
I do have a Graphic 45 layout to show! I love it. I always love layouts that capture a moment and has a story to tell, even if it is a very short little story like this one.
