lol and it’ll still be an awesome machine :D… trust me as a person who five years ago wouldn’t have imagined crafting as much as i do, i definitely say keep it!! you could always sell it later on if you don’t want it. i’m sure there are tons of women on here who really want it.  i definitely think you are crafty enough that you should keep it though.. but perhaps you should return it and get a kitchenaid mixer??? you’re definitely a baker 😀

km, pick an easy ish craft, try it out, and see if it grows on you. You can always try and sell it second hand after the wedding (seriously – I bet it would go fast on the classifieds if you priced it at like $150) and recoup most of that money, plus you might get at least one wedding DIY out of it.

I agree 🙂

Keep it and then sell it if you don’t get the use out of it! I want one sooo badly! I think you will use it a LOT more then you think!!!

Keep it for six months, but do yourself two things (that, for the most part, are worth the money):

Buy/borrow Adobe Illustrator and Sure Cuts A Lot. It makes the Cricut about fifty times more valuable. You cut whatever you draw/find online and make into curves/want at that point, and it’s soooooo much better that way!

Also, we used it a lot for decor around the apartment, cards, gift tags (you can cut people’s names into them, SO COOL), and like cre said, as you get kids it will be worth it.

If you do decide you hate it, then sell it, NBD!

OK, call me crazy, but im not exactly sure what this thing does.  Can someone explain it to me.  I googled it and it came up with stores that sell it, but from a bride to be perspective can you help me out?

@cinema: i definitely cogtta chat with you as well!! you rock!!

@3M: okay think of one machine that can do your wedding invites, programs, stds, etch your toasting flutes, make favor tags, favor stickers, vinyl to stick on the floor with your monogram, stitch a freaking quilt square cut out, and more…

check out the video on the right when you click on this link…

@KM: if you definitely don’t like it, then you should sell it… it may not be your “think” you know?

It’s an open package, you sure walmart’s not going to just give you store credit? That’s what they usually do…

I say if you’d be happier with the camera lens then return it, esp if you dont think you’re going to get much use out of it. I think you said you dont scrapbook and if you dont think you’ll do much crafts with it…i would def return it or sell it. I just got one and I love it…but i scrapbook and just started to make Christmas cards this yr.
