Trying new things

I've been fiddling around with all sorts of new things lately.  New toys, new gadgets, new techniques  Get the idea?

Back in January, my friend Christina got a Pogo polaroid travel printer.  So of course, being the gadget freak that I am, I NEEDED to get one.  I am so happy that I did.  It is so much fun!  I can print wirelessly from my Macbook over the bluetooth and the 2x3 prints that pop out are stickers!!  I made the cutest Valentine's Day card for my husband from the girls using a picture I printed out.

The printer doesn't use ink.  It uses a special thermal paper which is much less expensive.  I just want to print, and print, and print and then stick them everywhere!

So, while I was on this tiny photo kick, I decide to get an Instax mini 25, or rather, I suggested to my hubby that it would make the perfect gift for his valentine  :)

I have been having a lot fun playing around with this little camera.  It is so different then using a DSLR or even a point and shoot digital camera.  I am still messing around with it.  But it is a lot of fun.  Again, the photos this camera spits out are business card sized and they develop like a polaroid.  It has a little mirror on the front for taking self-portraits and that little white discy-thing on the wrist strap is an attachable lens for taking pictures close up!  Very handy.

I am working on some fun projects using these tiny photos, so hopefully I can share them with you soon!

I am working on the next blog post now about some crafty stuff I have been messing around with so you can expect that in a few days.



  1. I love my Pogo so much - it is super-fun! I'm especially loving your little Harry vs Alien Pogo picture that you posted on Flickr ;)

  2. Well now I think I need one too :-) So cool - can't wait to see what you've been up to the the photos! And hope you guys stayed safe today - freaky weather!

  3. so fun! I totally want one soooo bad!

  4. I want that camera! I think your POGO prints better than mine...i'm wondering if I should send mine in for service.

  5. You and Christina are bad influences! I think I might need one of these little printers, too. ;)
