I'm not brave enough to go out and fight the crowds, so I've done my Black Friday shopping online. Some of these sales were advertised a few days ago, so I could plan. Today, I received a package that I ordered earlier in the week. This is one of my purchases:
I already owned the red ATG 714 and love it, but I had to try the new pink one. They appear to be the same, except for weight. The red one is much heavier. It was also much more expensive. I think I paid over $50 for the red one a few months ago. I just got the pink one for less than $19. Since I use a lot of adhesive in card making, they will both get used a lot. Time will tell which one I use the most. The tape rolls look about the same, but I don't know if they are interchangeable. I'll try that later.
I also placed an order to another company at 12:03 AM, because it was only a 9 hour sale that started at midnight. That company had the rolls of tape for this gun at a lower price, so I ordered some more. I also have some Spellbinders dies and a few other things on order.
This was a fun day, since we have lots of left-over turkey to eat. I did all the cooking yesterday. After this little break, I'm going to have to get back to making cards. Lots of birthdays in December. I also have Christmas cards to address and get mail. I'll post some photos of the cards I've made in the next few days.
