This is embarrassing to admit but I have a crush.  And no, it's not on someone who'll get me into trouble with my husband.  It's actually on a digital cutting tool which kind of makes my adoration that much more embarrassing.  But I dare you to take a look at this wonderful piece of machinery and not fall head over heels in love.

You heard that, right?  The "AHHHHHH" that sounds like a chorus of angels singing when you look at it?  No?  Well, let me tell you more about it and maybe you'll see the light.

The Silhouette hooks up to your computer and cuts words, shapes and more from a variety of materials so you can make all sorts of fabulous things.  Like glass etching:

Vinyl wall decals:

And heat transfers you can use on clothes:

Or home goods:

Oh, the projects I'd take on with a Silhouette machine!  For now, this is an unrequited love but I'm hoping to make the Silhouette mine very very soon.

Since I obviously know the pain of a one-sided crush quite well, AFOMFT and our fabulous sponsors Lil' LJ and CozyToes by Kathy Dee are going to help one of you turn your dream into a reality with a $50 American Express Gift Card!  That's right - one lucky AFOMFT reader will win $50 to spend on anything she chooses.
