I hope everyone had a fun Thanksgiving weekend. I thought I would get a ton of crafting done, but I actually didn't get ANY crafting done over the weekend. Today's layout is super simple, but I am in love with the Santa silhouette from the Christmas cartridge. I may even use it again in a double layout that I need to work on next. I thought I had the other picture I wanted to go in the 4 x 4 space, but I must not have printed it. Just imagine another picture of Nicole looking cute by the Christmas tree.
Please do not think less of me when I tell you what happened when I decided to go to Walmart and have a MAJOR blonde moment. My only defense is that it was REALLY early in the morning and I was in over my head.
As of bedtime on Thursday, I had talked myself out of going to Walmart for the Cricut deals. I look at Walmart on Black Friday as a place for only the most serious Black Friday shoppers...I am NOT one of those people. I don't like shopping at Walmart on a regular day, let alone with a lot of crazed shoppers looking to score cheap toys and electronics. It's intimidating to me. I made a game time decision at 3 in the morning to go to Walmart and check out the Cricut sale that was starting at 4 am. Except that the Cricut sale started at MIDNIGHT. Once I got to Walmart, I was completely confused by all of the people camping out in the aisles (waiting for sales???). I was also a little disconcerted by the number of children running around Walmart at 4 am. After walking around aimlessly for awhile trying to find the Cricut stuff - which was in the children's clothing section, (???) I found the practically empty Cricut display. I found the last Twinkle Toes and decided to go ahead and get Hoot n' Holler (plus another secret cartridge for my niece) because $20 is such a great deal. Except...ONLY the new Cricut Lites were priced at $20 - the other cartridges were FULL PRICE. The truly sad part about that is I didn't even realize I paid full price until 9 am, (after I had already linked them to my Gypsy and redeemed my reward points) when I looked at my receipt. This is why I shouldn't make purchases at 4 am or on Black Friday because I did it ALL wrong. Never again...I should have gone back to sleep.
