OMG-I ordered it-Cricut Gypsy

HSN has this new gypsy bundle out that I got emailed to me today. I have been wanting it, but missed out the first time around. Dh said I could order it as an anniversary gift! I'm so excited. I won't get it till 11/21 as it's not shipping till around then, but I don't care. I just really hope I like it. I go to the races alot since dh works on a pit crew for a local team and am really excited to bring it with me there to use it. Also when we travel it will be nice to have and not have to lug all my carts with me when we go. I also really like the search feature on it, I think that would be really helpful as well. I'm so excited!!!

Here's what is listed on HSN's site about the Gypsy
