Yes, I got one...


So I have been salivating over this little machine for quite some time now...I've worked through the emotions of jealously as I see friends of mine buy one...and I've worked through the issue of "I have no money to buy this!"
So my good friend Barbara decided to send me a little email from JoAnn's stating that this baby was on sale for half off!!!! The price?
$99
I hemmed....
I hawed...
I looked online for days and days going back and forth with myself...can I afford? Do I really need this to enhance my life? Am I getting it to keep up with the Joneses, er um, Goodmans! :)
So I hemmed....
I hawed....
I looked online some more....
I called the store 3 days in a row to see if they still had them in stock!
I finally decided Saturday morning to take a little drive to my local JoAnn's store. Now listen friends...local means that I had to drive for over an hour to get to JoAnn's as I live in a little podunk town with no craft stores anywhere...**GASP** I know you're wondering how I live....let me tell you it is hard!
So I got up early (well, early for me!!!) and made the trek to Kennewick, WA found the JoAnn's store and proceeded to buy the newest member of my scrapbooking family. She is sitting upstairs right now waiting to be used and assimilated into my scrapbooking way of life!
Am I glad I bought it?

YES!

Ah, nothing like a new toy to make this scrapping girl happy!
