#7 - Christmas shopping for myself...

Earlier this week, I was checking my emails.  Read this, delete that, delete that, ooooh what's this??  Lincraft had sent me an email with their members only online specials.  I ALWAYS check their online catalogue, hoping they have the Big Shot on sale.  It has been on sale a few times over the past year or so, but I haven't been in a position to buy it.  It was on special this week.  Now when the Big Shot is on special, you have to act FAST.  They are snapped up super quick. 

Now I hear some of you saying "what's a Big Shot?". 

Isn't she beautiful?  She's a nifty little machine. She is basically a die cutter, and can create textured, raised patterned type paper.  It is really amazing.  I have wanted one for about two years.

I told husby about the sale and he said to go ahead and buy it and it would be my Christmas present!!!  I am sooo excited!!  It should arrive on my doorstep today while I am at work.

So what have you bought yourself for Christmas in the past?  This is a first for me, but I hear of alot of women doing this.  I'd be interested to hear what you bought!!

That's a great idea and you are a strong woman to wait 2 years : ) - but do you get to use it now?

Must start thinking about what I want for Christmas - I know I want a new sewing table
