buy at least one of everything like carts or machines? Are you more practical even if you could- maybe only buy what you will use? What would you do? ( or would you let your little "bug" buddies influenece you?) Laugh BJR.

I love my Expression and wish I could afford to buy another one in case it dies. So the first scrappy thing I would purchase with my lottery winnings (I wish!) would be another Expression machine. BigGrin

Also if I had money to throw around I may buy an extra of some of the cartridges I use the most like Create A Critter 1 & 2 and Elegant Edges.

If you asked me a few months ago, I would have said buy it ALL. However, I just spent time going through my stuff and reducing to just the machines, carts, supplies, etc., that I really use. I sold most of the rest and honestly, I don't think I am going to miss any of it. I am trying to be better about not buying carts just because they exist.BigGrin

I would buy one of each of the holiday, fonts, animals, outdoor stuff like trees and flowers. I would also get the carts that have the different shapes but I would buy all the sports stuff and any stuff that doesn't have stuff I wouldn't use on it.

I would have to buy a better computer since this one sucks. because I would be always using the CCR to design and cut out stuff that I wouldn't get anything else done.

heheheh and the amount of paper I would have to buy would be insane... but you can't buy all those carts and not have any paper to go with them.... and the mats and blades I would need.....

Oh, I would buy several machines and cartridges and have fun giving them away to those less fortunate than me that have a creative desire within! I would have so much fun doing that!!!

If I won the lottery...

Actually my husband and I have had this conversation. lol

We would buy a new bigger and better house. (ours now is a tiny 965 sq. ft. 3 bedroom)

In this new house I would have a HUGE room where I could house and play with all of my crafting goodies.

With this big new room I could spread out and better organize my goodies.

If they were better organized I could get to and use each of them in a more productive way.

I would have a table to create my cards AND a table to work on scrapbook pages I do not have room to work on right now.

...Sorry I got lost in dream world.

If I won the lottery you bet I would buy more Cricut and Cuttlebug stuff.

Crafty hugs,
D~

Hi!
All of the above, plus I'd quit my job and do more charity/volunteer type work, replace our cars which are aging, buy DD a car (she just turned 16), up grade our college attending son's car and we'd have plenty to pay for his last year and a half of college. We'd help our oldest son start college (he'd have to quit his current job to go back to school). DH would work 3 more years so he could retire and then we'd move back to his home area and travel again.

Got to go places to take pictures to scrapbook. Maybe we could go to every place on the Destinations Cartridge, wouldn't that be fun.

In the mean time, all is good.

I'm enjoying my week off from work, school break, and DH took the week off too, so we're doing honey-do projects around the house and just enjoying the break.

If it was a BIG lottery, I'd be purchasing homes in exotic places that we could visit (a few in each of Australia, Canada, Europe & US)

I wouldn't have time to craft because I'd be decorating all the homes around the world....but once I was done decorating/furnishing all the places, I'd a a bazillion photos to scrapbook!

If I won the lotto (the big one) I would pay off any bills obligations we had and the kids, as well as our siblings. Then I would buy a larger home that would have a place for both mine and hubbies hobbies, as well as space for homes for each of the kids. The rest would go into investments so we could live, volunteer, and travel in our retirement years and college for the grand kids. You can only have so many possessions and you can't take them with you when you are gone...so I would use the money to create experiences and memories.

Depends on how much we won, but after taking care of what was necessary, my "fun" would be to buy a small building and move my room into it so that it was completely separate from the house. It would have to be big enough for my dogs to have a bed for when I was there, too. She goes where I go.

The collector in my says BUY IT ALL, and in Cart form too, whatever the price. However, one look around my overcrowded living/crafting area tells me that perhaps I should stick with what I have, plus a few carts I really want but haven't been able to afford yet. And maybe a backup Expression machine. In red.BigGrin

edit: Okay,not in red, but Peppermint (I've just spent the last half hour drooling at google images of the peppermint cricut), or maybe in gold, but probably Peppermint.
