The Lomo Oktomat 35mm Camera is awesome for many reasons. The first is it's cool look. The second is what it does. This camera takes 8 pics at a time and can even link them together to form a mini movie with the help of some software.
I was just talking to my better half about how the world has changed technology wise in the last 50 years. I see our older generation struggling to keep up with the changing times, and wonder how it's going to be for me?
Phone bling is fun and can be found just about anywhere these days. I know my girls have fun decorating their phones - also makes it easier to figure out who's is who's when you all have the same phone.
Image Chef does look like fun! Thanks for the link Katie. I love your sidewalk story. When we moved into our current house the city was replacing parts of the sidewalk (at our expense). After they laid the new cement my husband got out there with a stick and wrote all of our names - hey, we had to pay for the concrete so why not? We decided to have our kids put their hands in it by their names as well. It was great fun.
I have found photo sites to be very handy when scrapbooking our vacations. Often I will by postcards during our trip to use instead of my own photographs - let's face it - they hire professionals to get the perfect shot that I will never get. Well worth .25 - especially for those impossible night shots. When finishing our scrapbook for Disney World, I realized that we had done a lot that I didn't or couldn't get pictures for. That's where the photo sites came in. Search for whatever you are looking for and you will find a pic for it. I copied and pasted into my photo file, put on memory card and printed out at the local store. I was thrilled with the results. Give it a whirl, I think you'll become an addict. :o)
Learn how to use your computer for scrapbooking. I need to read up on this since I stopped doing layouts on the computer years ago. I know there are so may new ways of doing things - just haven't taken the time.
This is a great article on the continued efforts to make the $100 laptop a reality. I'm not sure about the global scope of things but I know there are a lot of kids here in the US that could benefit. Once the kid has the laptop, how are they supposed to get online? One more bill, even a small one, is one that a lot of families can't afford.
