I got a present!!

If you have been watching my videos, you know I have many obsessions.  I am addicted to Greeting Farm stamps and Spellbinders.  Once I noticed that Michael's had Spellbinders AND I could use a coupon, there was noooo turning back.  Then Spellbinders came out with GRAND Nestabilities...I was just floored.  I soooooooo want all of them.  The one problem was that I do not have anything to cut them out with.  I only have a Cuttlebug which is no where near big enough to cut out the dies.  Sooooo, I have been researching which machine to get.  I would have loved to get an Accu-Cut machine but that is wayyyyyyy out of my price range.  So, I started looking at the Sizzix Big Shot Pro.  I have been wanting one for a while now but I want to get it at the best price possible.  So, the other day, I was reading Kathryn's blog ( and she posted that she got the Big Shot Pro!!  She found it on for a fabulous price AND it even comes with the XL plates.  The price is $231.99!!  n orde to ship it, you have to pay $1...yes, $1.  I couldn't pass this up BUT the hubs sure did.  He said that I had to wait.  So after a few days of pouting...he gave me the go ahead!!  I was soooooo super excited.  Today, when I got home, I saw a HUGE box waiting for me outside my door.  It came in!!  I couldn't wait for the hubs to get home and help me with it.  I just started to open the box and put it together.  You only have to put the handle on it.  Then I put it in the room.  The machine is GI-NORMOUS!!  It was a ton (30lbs)!!  So, here it is...

I figured I should show Roman with the machine in order to give you some idea of the size.

I can't wait to start using it!!  :)
