Cricut Expression vs Silhouette Cameo

I know I have been slacking on the blog posts lately. I promise there is A LOT that I can't wait to share with all of you! We have been crafting, cooking and building up a storm! For some reason it takes me FOREVER to load pictures onto the blog so I do a few a day (the wedding posts to come will have lots and lots of pictures to share). Until then I do have a question for those of you that love to craft.....


Is the Silhouette Cameo better than the Cricut Expression? I currently own the Cricut (got up at 3:00am to get it on a Black Friday sale a few years back). I have a good amount of cartridges and tools that I have collected since then and I really do like the machine. We used it to cut a lot of things that we DIY'd for our wedding in November, but I want the ability to cut using my computer and to make my own designs. I have thought about selling my Cricut and all of the cartridges and save up to get the Silhouette. I know that there is a way to connect the Cricut to the computer though, I just dont know if it's as good? I am still doing some research and I know there are lots of things online that discuss both of these machines. It just gets a little overwhelming at times looking at all of it so I thought maybe seeing what some of you think might help?

So, what are your thoughts? Should I make the switch? Is there another cutting maching out there to consider that I don't know about? What projects have you been able to make with them (I would LOVE to see them)?

If you are interested in either of these machines you can check them out here and here.

Also, if anyone has any advice/tips on loading photots (lots of them) to blogger, I am ALL EARS! :)
