Reading the fine print…..

Ladies, I wasn’t sure I was going to share this with you, but I just have to laugh about it now….you know that wonderful Yellow Expression that I got for 36.00?????

Well…I didn’t exactly read all of the description, and so when I opened it, I was shocked to see no cord.  I had already talked with a fellow blogger to buy my Cricut Create, and so I thought…OK, no big deal, I will just buy another cord…..to make a long story short, the cord was almost as much as the machine was for me!  So I had to ask my dear friend Jane if I could keep my Create as the cord was the same for the Expression.  She was a doll, understood perfectly and let me off the hook…. So I know own two Cricuts, I think I will try to donate the Create to a place that has cords…LOL Here is the description that I failed to totally read…..

People get so excited reading about an Ebay item their eyes often skip over things. This happened when I sold two brand new books, repos of vintage sewing books, still in a plastic sealed wrapper and the gal who bought them thought they were real vintage copies when I clearly said they were not. She was okay with it but this happens a lot on Ebay.

OH NO!!!! I would have assumed it came with a cord, too!! I'm surprised that the replacement is so expensive. That's a shame. I think the prices on your cartidges are fair. You will have lots of fun with it.
Mystic Paper and Scrapbooks, Etc....WWAAAAH! I miss them but I did have a fun day today with my pal Mimi..we went to the new Hobby Lobby...what joy, what bliss! Then we went to Steak N Shake for burgers and fries. (This was a good thing to do today after my colonoscopy yesterday-lol!)
Have a great weekend sweetie!
