I currently have the personal cricut machine that I bought from my co-worker. I really do love it but it's an expensive hobby. Well it's even a more expensive hobby for me now because I just got a super good deal on the bigger one. It's not the newest one but it's the Cricut expression, which is the larger size. They are very similar machines but this one can cut full size paper instead of me cutting the paper down. plus, I think it has a few other perks. Well anyways, I'm excited to get it and can't wait to start using it!!
