A New Cricut Machine?

I was minding my own business watching videos on Youtube when I ran across this one:

So, of course I had to go do some research:

I found this very interesting.  Notice the publication date:

I know a lot of people are disillusionsed with Provo Craft and their Cricut machines for one reason or another.  I personally have a Cricut Expression, Cricut Expression 2, Cricut Imagine and a Gypsy.  I also have a Silhouette Cameo.  And the Ecraft die cutting machine, but I digress.  I like all of my machines for different reasons.  I like the Cricut Craft room, too.  I enjoy the Silhouette website and like all of the options for downloading and cutting.  I think each machine has its strengths.  Cricut tends to stick with the cute and I am all about the cute.  Silhouette has a lot of variety and is a little more sophisticated.  I like sophisticated, too.

I'm sure there will be lots of people who will not even consider purchasing this new Explore machine.  I, on the other hand, will be watching HSN and I feel quite confident I will be sucked in by the hype.  How long has it been since we've had a new machine?  Too long!

And just one more thing.  Who made the first die cutting machine that we had to have?  Who still has a stuffed green cricket sitting in their craft room?  I believe it was Provo Craft.  I think I can give them another chance.

Have a great day and be inspired.
