Have you missed me at all? I have missed you all! I can finally say that I am feeling better, though it has taken a bit! I can't remember the last time I was sick! No fun! And just when I thought we were out of the woods, my sweet little guy woke up a few minutes ago (it's 11:15pm now) and is running a temp. UGH! I have him sitting in my lap eating a popsicle watching the Upside Down Show :) Poor little guy! His friend who is staying the night is fast asleep in his room!
On to the crafty note! I have a new BFF :) My sweet and wonderful hubby who brought me home my first Cricut, an Expression, 2 years ago and a Gypsy a year ago, has out done himself :) I am the owner of the new Cricut Imagine!
(Can I just say it was MUCH bigger than I remembered and weighs more than my 4 year old I do believe :)
 After seeing it demo at CHA in Chicago, I was still not "sold" on it, and to be honest, when I took it out of the box, I wasn;t there yet either! NOW, after playing with it, I love it! I can see all kinds of possibilities! I cannot wait until it is fully functional with my Gypsy! I seriously LOVE my Gypsy and going from using it everyday to not using it with the Imagine- HUGE transition! Don't worry though- I have NO plans of getting rid of my Expression! There are WAY too many benefits to it and each machine is very different each has features I LOVE and others I wish I could tweak, so I will resort to how my mom always explained her love for her 3 kiddos, "I love you all equally, and for the joy you bring to my life individually and as a whole" Works here too  :)
ANd for those wondering- there are new carts. They do not work in the other Cricut machines, BUT ALL OLD CARTS work in the new machine!
Next post- a project with the Imagine!!!!!! YEAH!!!

ALRIGHT!!! What a sweetie your hubby is to get you this new machine!! Now I must ask what does the Expression do that the Imagine won't do??
