My Deal of the Year


If the all caps didn't warn you how excited I am, imagine me with a GIANT grin on my face and doing a jig. I'M EXCITED!

Why, you ask?

I JUST BOUGHT A CRICUT EXPRESSION FOR $129.99. It retails for $299.99! That's a $170 savings. Way more if you live in Canada. I've seen them for $400 there. (I've been eyeballing them for months.) EDIT: On the cricut website, the Expression is listed at $499!

AC Moore was selling it - today only - for $130. I could have died. Why? Because I had been at Walmart looking at this baby not more than 25 minutes before I read the ad. I knew I had to go back. I just came home with my new best friend and I'm beyond excited.

What makes this beast so special? It is a personal cutting machine that cuts shapes, letters and phrases out of paper, chipboard, cardstock, vynal (yes, I can now make my own wall-words!) They cut in up to sizes 12x24. Oh man, my mind is whirling as to what I can do with this baby! This makes me think I want to do a giveaway! Yes, I'm jazzed. Look for one in the near future!

Ladies, run, don't walk to your nearest AC Moore craft store ad - get you to Walmart and grab you a Cricuit. Why Walmart? Because they price match and the ad is good for one day only. AC Moore is already closed. Hurry ladies. Hurry! Why are you still reading?? No AC Moore ad? I'm truly sorry. I'd give you mine if you lived nearby.

Off to watch Desperate Housewives. Have any of you been watching this season?? I'm constantly on the edge of my seat!

Ooo! That's a great savings!

We don't have AC Moore here. But if we did, I couldn't justify spending $$ right now, so I'll just live vicariously through you! I think I'd be making TONS of vinyl stuff...I want to make something to go over the front door in the foyer.

Be sure to show us all of your new projects you make with it!

Tonya said...

What a great deal!!! I can't wait to see your amazing creations!

Girl, I'm so behind on my blog and catching up w/all you've been doing! I'm a little overloaded w/sessions that need edited, so I've really had to buckle down on how much "play" time I'm spending online. I've got a few more sessions to finish up, then I'll be back! ;)

I hope you're having a fabulous time w/your family and get some awesome Black Friday deals! I'm going out too w/my BFF and possibly some other girlfriends...I need a Nintendo DS for my little man!

Okay so I love you and HATE you right now! I got behind on reading my blogs, and missed this sale. I have been watching for a cricut expression sale for months now. I am gonna go see if I can find someone with Sunday's paper to see if it is still in there and take it to Wal-Mart. Who knows, they may price match it anyway! Wish me luck!

Genevieve said...


Come and see my blog... :O)

Erin said...

That is a great deal! I love it when I find something so good like that!

Angie said...

Ooooh, I am so dang jealous! You better get to crafting and show us all the neat things that machine can do!!!
