I think I'm officially CRAZY!
My Black Friday Story
I went to WalMart at midnight to be with all of the other crazy people. I stood next to the pallet with the new Expressions and the new Cartridges. When the plastic came off the pallet, I transformed into the Incredible Hulk and muscled my way into the cartridges. I think I might have even ripped Jolly Holidays from some poor soul's grip.
Three new carts, in my hands!
Needless to say, it was a touching moment:)
I have also had my eye on the Canary Expression since I saw the Black Friday ad So...I turned to the machines and frantically looked for a Canary one.
Not one was anywhere to be found.
As I stood there in disbelief, I looked down at the last three and can you believe it???...there it was...glowing from the bottom of the pallet. I think it was the only one in the entire shipment.
I grabbed it faster than I grabbed Jolly Holidays.
When I returned to my upright position, I looked at my Fiance with such victory only to see him shaking his head "NO". I guess the fact that I already have two Expressions and an Expression Cake might have been the reason. Who knows...all I know is that I had to concede about 15 minutes later.
It appears that no amount of explaining was going to
convince him that I NEEDED this 3rd machine.
As I took that emotional walk to the cash register with my three new carts,
I tried to look at the bright side.
At least I got all of the new carts that I wanted RIGHT?
Nahhh...I couldn't concentrate or think of anything else except the Canary Expression and that darn cart that I couldn't have unless I got the Expression. Sooooo...after many hours of breaking down my Fiance's tolerance, HE finally conceded and Friday afternoon we were off again to WalMart to get my Canary Expression and the Playtime cart.
"Persistence" I say...
Only...it wasn't looking good for me...the first WalMart, none left...the second WalMart, none left...FINALLY, the third WalMart and I saw it sitting there. I grabbed it and held it like the infant I never had.
After a deep breath and a much needed sigh of relief, I had them...
my New Baby and a Playtime cartridge:)
I have decided to name her "Sally"
Isn't she Beautiful?
Sally and four new carts...
there is the font one that came with it too.
I love the Yellow Mat. I don't want to use it.
I'm sure many of you relate to this story and get
some comfort from knowing that you're
not alone in this Crazy Crafting World:)
