My Valentine's gift from hubby!

Wow....was I ever shocked when David suggested I get an MP3 player. I have been wanting one for a long time, now, but wasn't expecting one till maybe next Christmas...if then. We had made a promise not to buy each other gifts this past Christmas. So, he's calling this a Valentine's gift ;-)

It's so dang cute...and so tiny! It's smaller than my cell phone...and I thought that was small. It's about 3" L by 1 1/2" wide.

I had been talking to different people to see what features I needed. I really wanted to be able to download podcasts, music and maybe an occasional book from my library. I can watch movies, but what's the point? I would rather watch them on my TV or computer not a tiny screen I can barely make out ;-)

Anyway, Friday we were in Redmond just doing some errands and he suggested we go look at the MP3 players to get an idea of what was out there. Next thing I know, we bought one. I was just so shocked!!!

My friend, Peg, came over the next day and walked me thru how to rip, sync and drag and drop!! What fun!!!! I now have Toby Keith, Smooth Jazz and even The Beach Boys on my player. AND a couple of podcasts!!!

I decided to forego the downloading of books for now, I still like to actually HOLD the book in my hands....and/or listen to them on tape. BUT, when the time comes, I know I will just have to learn how to do that, too!

Isn't learning new things, FUN? I love anything to do with technology!!!

Ok, and so that this is actually about stamping, today, here is another card I finished last week using the Sweet Skunks set from TAC.

I have to admit, I have been having so much fun listening to books on tape while doing things around the house that I haven't spent much time stamping this week.

Just like stamps, there are SO many books out there, I am learning about 'new to me' authors and reading more than I have in a long time. I actually don't read until bedtime, but now with the CD's, I can listen while I do other things.

I was definitely born in the right era!!! I can't even fathom what we'll be able to do in the next 10-20 years. Who would have thought we'd have a tiny little MP3 player to listen to music! Coming from me, who grew up with records and radio and TV that went off the air at night ! ;-)

Have a great day!!!!

  2. That's funny, I just priced some yesterday! My friend was trying to get me to go to the gym, which I would love, but it's way too much $ right now, so my hubby said he would buy me an MP3 player and then I can walk or jog. So I'm getting one this week, probably not a big one, cause we are spending so much on the house lately, but I'm gonna start walking to Gabe's school to get him now instead of driving, unless of course it's raining. Maybe you'll have to teach me how to work it. :)
