I did it! I broke down and ordered the Gypsy last night. HSN had a second round order for a Gypsy bundle. This time HSN included the Destinations cartridge. It appears to be a full content shapes cartridge. However, its contents seem to be a mystery as there are no pics to be found of the images on this cart, so I am quite intrigued. It is expected to be delivered by Nov 12, which is just awesome as I am headed to the beach on the 15th and I usually make my Christmas cards while I am there, so that will work out perfectly.
I was originally going to hold out for Black Friday to see if the price came down, but I was able to use a 15% off coupon code which I just couldn’t resist. I hope I am not disappointed the time BF comes around. It is still so new I just don’t know if they will have it as a special. I guess if they put it on sale for 199.95, I would still have to think I came out ahead because the bundle comes with a carrying bag and the extra cartridge. The carrying bag is supposed to be exclusive to HSN and HSN also offers a 3 year protection plan for 39.95, which I don’t believe any of the craft stores are going to offer. The plan even includes damage from dropping! Well for now I am ecstatic about my purchase and can’t wait for Nov 12!!!!
On another note, I just made my first wordbook; it is a Halloween book. BugJunkie did a video series on how to make one and so I pretty much copied hers for my first try…I will post pics later. I think it is cute and am thinking I have to make some as Christmas presents for friends. I already have a few ideas in mind for a couple of my friends. Can’t wait to get started!
