Jumping on the bandwagon?

Umm... okay, when I found out about the iPhone, I thought it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen in my life, but I didn't get one. THEN the iPod Touch came out. I got one of those (well, hubby got it for me...), and I still think it's the coolest thing I've ever seen.

Until now.

Granted, the name, iPad... I think... is stupid. It sounds like a feminine hygiene product for the digital era. I honestly thought it was a spoof. LOL. But THEN, I watched this video. I've been wanting an eBook since 2001. Seriously. But... I hadn't fell in love with one enough to pay the money. I guess I was waiting for this day. ;-)

Okay, I'm not going to run right out and get myself an iTampon as soon as it becomes available. Oops! I mean iPad! iPAD! Right. Sorry. May take me a while to get used to that silly name. Anywho... I'm not going to get one right away. I think I'll wait for the 2nd generation... let them work out all the kinks. LOL.

I love that it has a calendar/planner in it! Photos, videos, books *and* a planner?! Now, that's something I can get on board with. :-)

Hmm... we weren't going to put *all* our tax money toward credit card debt, were we?!

*ahem* Back to regularly scheduled posting.

And a layout I did using Studio Calico's January kit...

The journaling on this layout is a blog post I wrote on January 8th. I REALLY wanted to turn that into a page. I'm so glad I did! I know this design is kinda crazy (and doesn't have a white background! LOL!), but I wanted something that could fit A LOT of handwritten journaling in a creative way, and this is what my brain came up with. I also love this photo of the two of us. So fun!

Did I show this card too? I don't remember...

You should have seen my scrap room while I was creating this. It was SUCH a mess! Alphabet stickers EVERYWHERE!! LOL. Totally fun though. :-)

LOL @ iTampon!! My friends said the same thing!!! Did they ask ANY WOMEN about this name? Seems were all a wee bit offended here! LOL! Thanks for the laughs!

If you get an iTampon, I mean iPad, tell me how you like it. It's very smart of you to wait until the 2nd one comes out though. I remember when I got my 30gb 2nd generation iPod back in 2003 for like $500, THE VERY NEXT DAY they came out with a 60gb for $300. I felt cheated, but such is life with gadgets!

Loooooove that G card. One of my faves ever.
