OMG I am one lucky girl. I loved the idea of the cricut cake but could not justify the cost of the machine with my DH out of work and I really don't have the space for another large machine. So I was really excited when the mini came out, and when I saw it was on sale for $99.99 on black Friday I was really sad that I couldn't pick it up. Well what I didn't know is my wonderful DH called his mom and told her about it and she went and got it for me for Christmas!!! I'm so excited and can't wait to play with it.
