I have owned a Cricut for a few years and at least half a dozen cartridges because all my friends LOVE theirs. I have never bonded with that machine. My adult daughter has borrowed it and used it more often than I have. So now in November, while hubby was watching TV, I checked out this thread and now I own a Silhouette! Daughter is ecstatic and I have yet to take it out of the box. I am so ashamed.
Now I'm confessing so I can receive notifications and get that machine out of the box and start using it. I think I'll love it. Mostly because unlike the Cricut I won't need to haul the big thing out and sort through a stack of cartridges.
Keep posting ladies, I need all the encouragement I can get!
