I've been holding back on you guys...

First of all, praise God I can hear again. Next, we unexpectedly DID NOT have to pay out a HUGE chunk of money to update our homestudy that I thought we were going to have to. Now we are still good for one more year and honestly I don't know if anything past that I could stand anyway. Anywho, I digress! Biggrin So, had quite a bit of money to spend and DH ACTUALLY talked me into to spending it!

So, I placed an order:

What's in the box you ask?...

Well, how about a closer look?

I can tell your interest is peaking.....

WAIT FOR IT!!!!!

WAIT FOR IT...........

Wait for it......................

BAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you believe it? I just spent one half of my summer school teaching salary!!!!! OMG!!!!
I got
Wild Card
Storybook
Opposites Attract
Mini Monograms
Mickey Font
Jasmine
Graphically Speaking
Celebrations
Beyond Birthdays
and 12x24 mat

I will say that Custom crops is super cheap BUT they are very slow!!!! It's been almost 2 weeks. I called them on Tuesday and they pulled my order and went ahead and filled it. So, I guess if I wouldn't have called it would have taken even longer. Just thought I would share so if you order from them you are prepared to wait.

SWEET!!!! I'm so psyched for you. But I have to ask (and you can't answer until you've had the weekend with your carts) ... are you overwhelmed with them? I get overwhelmed with mine now, too many choices, too many options. But it's a good thing. Smile

Oh my! :eek: I never made it to my scrapping room last night. I spent a few hours going through the flip books and just seeing what was in the carts. Goodness!

Gwen- I don't have to wait til the weekend is over, I can already tell you I feel overwhelmed! I was telling DH that I didn't know how I was going to remember/know what all I have now. He suggested that I print out what's on each cart and put them in a notebook, then I could just look through it. I may do that.

Tia- doesn't shopping cure alot of things? Wink

I've thought about doing that, but the work involved didn't seem like it would justify any time I saved having it - I'd still have to flip through the notebook.

However, there is a Yahoo group that has cheat sheets for a lot of the carts. I joined it but haven't looked at all of the cheat sheets yet. I bet it would help you a LOT though! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CricutCheatSheet/

I am soooo jealous. I saw your other post and was going to suggest Storybook or Graphically Speaking. You've already got them!!!
Yeah, custom crops is slow but for their price as long as you don't need it in a hurry, it's fine. I also like Ohmycrafts.com. They run good specials as well. And don't forget to look online for shipping codes and stuff. I usually get my carts from them for under $30. (Though, not the newer ones like SB and GS)
