Giggle Giggle... look what arrived at my gate yesterday!

Oh my this is so exciting!! AND HEAVY!!!  Hubby said I could get a new Big Shot - as my Cuttlebug was not well. I spent a lot of time researching and trying to find the "best price". And then I got sucked in and fell in love with the Big Shot Pro :0) Ok, it is more money, but it will do 12 x 12 and the large dies are just fabulous! Now they will take time to get a few I admit, they are  pricey too - but I just really got sucked in.... and hey it matches my new craft room! It is Blue and White!
You can read online.. "This thing is big" & "This thing is heavy" and think Oh yes I am sure it is... LOL But when you come home and see the box, and then try and pick it up... "OH MY THIS THING IS BIG AND HEAVY!!"  LOL the spot on my desk I had cleaned off to put my new toy... was only half the size I needed to to be!  After rearranging my room and getting it out of the box and reading the instructions. I did get one large die.. the 6x6 envelope die! Cool huh? But I need to get some of the bags and boxes... sllllowwlyyy  -

Now I need time to play - work is crazy now and no time right now :0) But it is sitting there waiting and calling me....

Oh that is so cool! I can only imagine how heavy it is, because the original sizzix is heavier then you think it would be.

Congratulations Michele! It's like birthing another baby, isn't it? How fun! Can't wait to see what your able to do with it. Remember, it will do the smaller size dies too! I know the bigger ones are the fun ones when you get the pro...will have to keep an eye out for you for sales and discounts on them. Hope things slow down for you so you can get to play with it. Have Fun!!!

Congrats on that wonderful new toy! You deserve the pro model. You'll make alot of awesome projects with it. I can't wait to see what dies you get when the time comes.

Sometime will you please tell us how many donkeys and goats you have? Seems like you have quite a sizable family of them. :)
