Chances are you've seen the infomercial for the Cricut cutting machine and thought one of two things; either "I HAVE TO HAVE THAT!" or "I bet that's not nearly as awesomely awesome as it seems on TV". Well, I'm here to say that it really is awesomely awesome and full of awesomeness. I got one through an online Black Friday sale this past year (speaking of awesome, how awesome is Black Friday without leaving the house?!) and it is as cool as they make it look on the tele. Sure you have to spend a bit of time figuring out all the features and deal with a bit of trial and error, but it is seriously super. I even cut some felt with it. It was the stiff crappy craft felt, but the Cricut cut perfect circles for me.
Anyhoo, the point here isn't so much a blogomercial for a Cricut but a post that CBS technology correspondent, David Gregg, is hosting a segment called “Crafty Gadgets” on The Early Show tomorrow, expected to air between 8:00 - 8:50 am EST. They'll be showing the Cricut and 5 other things that I'm sure I'll HAVE TO HAVE by the end of the demos.
