She went shopping today (on Black Friday...~shudder~. I refused to go shopping today!). But she only went to JoAnne Fabrics and Michael's and said that it wasn't all that crazy. But she also got an awesome deal on a Cricut Personal Cutter at JoAnne's. The regular price is $199.99 (eek!), but today it was on sale for $74.88 (squeal!). So Mom bought me one as my Christmas gift, and not only could she not keep it a secret, she couldn't wait for me to open it! I don't even know why she bothered to wrap it!
So we had fun tonight playing with my new toy. (and for the scrapbooker, cardmaker, or papercrafter...it's a really fun toy!)
One of the cartridges has a special card-making feature on it.
Mom did say that if I was going to be in town for Christmas instead of in Ohio with my husband's family, she would have waited until Christmas to give it to me. (My husband and I alternate years that we spend the holidays with our families...if we spend Thanksgiving with my family, we'll spend Christmas with his. Next year we will do Thanksgiving with his family and Christmas with mine. It's a good system.) But on the other hand, it's not uncommon for my Mom to buy me something as a gift for Christmas or my birthday and not be able to wait to give it to me.
