Thanks to Mrs. Penguin, she brought out one of my deep dark secrets.  I desperately want a Cricut.  And for those of you out there in blogger world that have no idea what I am talking about.  Take a gander below:


When I first started working on wedding plans a few months ago, I kept reading about all these different craft ideas.  In the world of wedding plans, you run across terms like Gocco, Cricut, etc.  Gocco was a little too intense for me.  With a guest list of around 250, there is no way you could pay me to make 250 of anything with the Gocco, so it was not worth the investment.  Now, the Cricut on the other hand, was totally up my alley.

It can cut paper and templates for crafting projects, which to me was ideal, considering how much scrapbooking I do.  Add to that wedding plans and DIY projects, it just seems like the perfect fit (for me, that is).   I haven’t purchased one (and I am REALLY considering it).  On some of the many nights that I stay up late (which is every night), I have found myself watching the infomercials for the Cricut (I will pause so you can laugh).  It has been about two months since the last one I saw, so my desire to own one got put on the back burner.  That is, until I was going through all of my bookmarked wedding blogs, only to find Mrs. Penguin rave about hers.  And now the desire is back.  More than ever now too.  I could make my envelope liners without having to hand-cut them, I could have our escort cards cut in fun shapes, and our menus could be circles!  And, Amazon is selling it for $200 less than what it is on

And, the desires just stands….need to think about this one and whether or not the FI wants to hear me cutting things on my Cricut at 2 in the morning (which is probably a big NO).

What should I do?  Buy it?  I could totally use it down the road (personalized stationary, thank you cards, scrapbooking, etc. etc.).  Oh the decisions!
