After days of agonizing, I decided to take the plunge and join the cricut circle. What is the cricut circle you ask? Is it a secret society? The kind with a special handshake?
Actually the cricut circle is basically a club of cricut fans.
It's about $80 per quarter or $280 per year. For my money I will receive 1 new cartridge every quarter for 1 year, exclusive discounts, a cute bracelet, and invitations to special events.
But, is it worth the $$? The answer to that is in the eye of the beholder. To me, the answer is yes. I love playing with my cricuts. Yes - that's plural...currently I have 3 machines (2 baby bugs and 1 expression), but that's a whole other future post. I certainly don't want to have to outbid someone on ebay for a particular cartridge because it's only available to the circle members. As an added bonus - I get to do something for myself without regrets... a treat if you will... for someone who takes care of everyone else... and finally has chosen to do something for herself.
So...I've set up this blog to share with you the many events in my life that are a result of being "in the circle". I hope that what I write will inspire you to be creative, to give, and to take care of yourself too.
For those who would like addtional information about the circle. Here's what Provo Craft has to say about the cricut circle:
