I had the television on on Christmas Eve day and saw an infomercial on the Cricut. Try it for only $49.99. As I watched more of the infomercial I got more interested in having a Cricut so went on line to check it out. What they neglected to tell you is you try it for $49.99 but if you keep it - you will have four more payments of $49.99. Yikes! So I went to eBay and found an open box model for $100.00 less than new. This machine is awesome! Now to find some other cartridges that don't cost an arm and a leg.
