{RED} Letter Day

Late yesterday afternoon a little brown truck (UPS) pulled up in front of my house. There was a box for me from my pal Deb. Inside the box was this:

*SQUEE* A {RED} Poloroid Pogo Printer!! I am telling you, there was a whole lot of happy in that box! I have been dying to have one of these, but as per usual, they are not available in Canada yet. *sigh* We're always last to the party. It was the same thing when I wanted to get a Flip-I had to make a special trip across the line to get one, which I did because, well... you know...I am my Gramps' girl when it comes to tools and techno stuff.

There was also this great carry case in the box, along with 80 sheets of paper, so I can print to my heart's content. I am *so* excited about using this little beauty to enhance my ROD journals with cool little photos.
I printed a couple pics just to see how it worked-one of my new tattoo and one of my beloved Indy. Both are now stuck down in my journal. Easy-peasy!

For those of you not in the know, the photos print out business card size, with a sticky adhesive backing, so you just print, peel and slap it down! Poloroid has cleverly built the ink right into the paper-think of it as the modern version of the 70's Poloroid technology.

The Pogo measures 4 1/2 inches long x 2 1/2 inches wide x 3/4 inches thick and weighs a mere 0.4 lbs. It's perfect for the journaller on the go! I can't wait to pop it in my bag with my camera and my ROD journal and head out for some art time at the local coffee shop. Just thinking about it makes me smile.

So glad it made it to the outer-Mongolia-burbs of Canada. For the price of the 'xtra' charge you could have flown to see me ~wink~

I expect a pic of you & Indie to be sent to the Outer Mongolia region of Wyoming.
