i've lost my marbles

Remember how I told the hubs if he got a boat I got a little sparkly? Well I changed my mind. I decided he gets a boat and I get an embroidery machine. If you know me at all, you know I'll use it for everything. Our house will be covered in monograms. Every Christmas, birthday, Easter, and halloween gift will be personalized. It will be awesome. Fair match right? Just wait.

Meet the Babylock Ellisimo {and the heavens opened and the angels sang}. It is the bees knees and I want, I want, I want. It can do everything and because it's the same brand as my other sewing machine the parts are interchangeable. You can design your own fancy embroidered pictures. It has a camera in it to make sure you're not being an idiot and doing it wrong. Sweet baby Jesus and all holy Martha Stewart I have to have this machine!

Then I found out how much it costs...right around the $7000 range. No I didn't accidently add a zero or forget to put the decimal point. It's seven grande. Panic, panic, panic...no, no, no! That's almost double the cost of the boat {almost} and yet I'm still swooning over it. I'm obviously out of my mind because I still want it and I'm making plans to get it. Just call me crazy.

  1. $7k! Yes - you're crazy. Surely a lower cost embroidery machine that still does cool stuff must exists, no?
