Green Cricut! And a *possible* Expression giveaway

Hi friends! Okay, so if you have been to my blog lately then you know that I was one of those girls all over the Cricut pallet at Walmart on Thanksgiving day around 10:15pm. I love my new Cricut and I don't know if I mentioned this or not but it seems it has less noise than the other one. My other Expression is pretty new too, I've used it but not as much as all the Cricut lovers out there, in fact nowhere near that. It's practically new, no scratches, nothing...

Speaking of that, I have been thinking of giving it away like I did with the baby bug, so if you think I should let me know. I would also want to give it to someone that does NOT own an Expression or that has the baby one.
So comment about that and I'll make my mind soon.

I just got 2 more cartridges today. I had been wanting the Birthday Bash since I saw it AND I saw that this one and Wrap it Up comes with the new handbook which is a world better than the older handbooks. These are big pictures, in color and its super awesome. I hope they stick to it. So here is a picture in case you have not seen them yet.
Hugs ;)

*** Edited*** Hi ladies, first of all thanks for all your comments with all the great ideas and sweet words. The reason why I do not want to donate it to my son's school (or any school) is because I see the Cricut Expression as a more personal item and in a school I am not sure how long it would last. I did donate my super new Sizzix machine with tons (and I really mean TONS of dies) last year. I think that will last a lot longer than the Expression.

Oh wow. The green one is so beautiful. I have the baby bug. I realllly want the expressions but just can't do it right now. Let me know how much you would like for it and I may be interested in it. :) Love your blog by the way. You do such beautiful work stamping and scrapbooking.

I think offering it as a giveaway would be very generous of you! there are a lot of cricut lovers looking to upgrade. I had no plans on buying a colored one since I have the original but then I found out Playtime is exlusive to the new ones so I just might LOL.

OMgoodness. You are going to giveaway your first expression? I can't do that. I cannot part from the one that has been so loyal to me. Don't get me wrong I love my red one, but I love my white (original) one even more.Maybe if they come out with the pink one next year on black friday I will get rid of the white one.
we will see if I will be able to part from it.
But I think you should donate it to a school that would love to have it. Speak to some teachers.

Yes you have to find a way to pay it forward... I just got the canary one and gave my black one too a teacher who is going to use it for her class projects... she was so happy she wanted to get even a used one...BTW your green one is pretty awesome...

I think it would be awesome (and extremely generous) of you to give away the Expression, especially if you know you're not going to use it...or as others have said, donating it to a school or something would be fabulous, too. :)

I just love your new expression! As far as the giveaway, that would be just so nice of you to do that. There are always blessing that come back to you when giving is involved!!! I would love to have a Cricut expressions, don't have one, but do have a create, but maybe there is someone out there in the bloggin world don't have any. Someone would have a wonderful Christmas blessing!!!

wow that would be very generous! I love the green color...I share the baby one with my mom, but I really want the expression, you are so limited with the baby bug. I donate my cards to my church and I see so many cool cards that I cannot cut full size on mine...oh well one day :)

I am an expression owner, but I know some gals that don't own Cricuts at all that would LOVE to enter your give-a-way if you have one! I'd be sure and help spread the word for you, I'm sure it would really make someone's holidays :)

Your green one is super cute! A give a way would be awesome! I have been wanting to get a cricut for such a long time. Everytime I save up to get one, something happens and we have to spend the money of more pressing needs. I was all set to go out and get one on Black Friday but right before Thanksgiving we found out my husband needed to have surgery so sadly no cricut this time. Oh well... one day I'll own a Cricut! :) Happy Scrapping!

Teri Berrios said...

LOVE IT!!! I'm sure you will put that new one to good use :) Hey D, have you thought about donating it to the PTA department at the school???...they do the bulletin's, etc for the schools.....they will be so grateful. See if you can talk to the person in charge.

Bueno chica....enjoy all your new goodies!!!!

Hugs, T

I love the new green cricut!

I definitely think you should give it away, that would be so great!

I am currently looking for an expression, I have a baby bug and would love the bigger one!

wow that is generous of you!!!

Kathy said...

How sweet and generous of you! I already own an Expression (my Christmas gift to myself this year!), but I'd love for my sister-in-law to have one! She has gotten into this wonderful hobby and is loving it! She'll be moving away soon and won't be close to be able to borrow and share. This would be great for her to take with her when she moves across the country from me. (I'm not too thrilled about it!) Thanks for your generosity!

Meggan said...

OH MY GOSH!! I WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE one! You are far too sweet! You have such a kind heart! I've been wanting one FOREVER. I haven't been able to buy myself one since I have 3 kiddos and I'd feel to guilty buying myself something so spendy!I wasn't able to go shopping on Black Friday, part of me wanted to, but I wasn't going to take 3 little ones out at 4 a.m., it wasn't worth it to me. I'm glad you got yourself some deals!! I did a little shopping online though :)

Whatever you decide, even if you decide not to keep, the thought of you being so generous is amazing.

Happy Holidays!!!

You green Expression is so cute. I love the way you decorated it. I would love an expression but for now i still have the baby bug. I would donate my baby bug if I had a expression. This ideas is awesome.

I love your blog, I have learned alot for your site. Thanks for sharing.

Beandip said...

WOW! How thoughtful of you. I have the small cricut, and it's starting to not sound so good. I would love to win your old expression. Thanks.

Hi Daydmi,
I don't own an expression. My family and I moved to Arkansas(we used to live in Tampa)a year ago. Here we don't have crops or any cool stores like back home. The it store here is Walmart! I have to travel to Little Rock for my scrapping fixes or order online.
I've just started to decorate my scrap room and you have been my mentor this past year. I've just started scrapping again :) My room color is a light orange and I'm decorating it with green highlights (accessories, decorations, etc.)and this expression would not only fit my room scheme but it would make my day!! Thank you

Oooo...I'd love one :)

Amanda Finamore said...

That would be so generous of you to giveaway your expression. I don't have any kind of cricut, I would love to have one but just can't put out the money for one right now. Your green one is adorable :)

I think it's a wonderfully fabulous idea for you to give your "old" Expression away. I personally do not have the Expression but I do have the Personal Cutter (which I use ALOT). I do hope to upgrade some day. If/When I do I too have decided to give my Personal Cutter away to a fellow crafter that cannot afford one. I too think that donating to my childrens school would severely shorten it's life span and I believe it would be better appreciated by a fellow crafter.
I'm hoping to be able to give it to her sometime in 2011.

TFS,
I'm a new follower of your blog.
