Thanks to all of you for your wonderful support Monday, August 5th. Many of you have written that you have your hAppy in hand and love it!
I am loving how I can design and print wirelessly right from my smartphone or tablet–all without the ink! That’s right–I’ll never have to replace a cartridge or ribbon. All the color technology is in the zRoll paper. Another favorite thing about the hAppy–the zRoll paper already has acid-free adhesive applied to the back of the photo or project. Also the ZINK hAppy broadcasts its own wifi so you can virtually print from anywhere using your iPhone, iPad, iPod or Android device.
I’ve been printing 2 x 2 photos of all our happenings during the week, then sticking them on a card that I send to Collin. He loves it–it’s a compact “week at a glance” and I don’t have to pay for all the postage of sending 4 x 6 photos. I also quickly made block party BBQ invites for tonight in a matter of minutes.
Also BIG news–a special Project Life edition that works hand in hand with the hAppy will be announced soon!
My next shows on HSN are on Tuesday September 17th at 10 a.m. EST, 2:00 p.m. EST and 9:00 p.m. EST.
Guess who got their New Zealand driver’s license?
Yep–it’s always been a dream of Collin’s to drive on the other side of the road! Last year while in England he wanted to give it a go but wasn’t old enough to drive a rental car. Now that dream is being fulfilled!
He is really enjoying New Zealand and loves the people there. The dad of the missionary in the middle served a mission with Collin’s dad (Steve) in Chicago years ago. Wow–small world!
Last week we went to a rodeo two hours away and felt like the luckiest people in the world when we bumped into the missionary at the left in the above photo. He just returned from his two-year mission so he was able to tell us some fun stories about Collin!
Konsti, our German boy, left on Saturday after five weeks of being here. Chiara, our Swiss girl, has only one more week with our family.
Funny story about Chiara. She loves to hike, bike and do anything in the great outdoors. This morning she went biking on a trail right by our home and at the last minute I gave her one of our cell phones and said to call if there was an emergency. Three hours later she showed up in a van with a nice lady who had Chiara’s bike in the back. One tire was totally flat and she’d been walking for two hours with the bike. I asked why she didn’t call and she said “It wasn’t an emergency!” We all had a chuckle and I explained when I said “emergency” that it meant anything that went wrong.
I love having different cultures in our home. It makes life so interesting.
Hope your week is off to a good start.
