~ Technology meets Hobby ~

Hello Dear Friends! First I want to wish you all a wonderful Happy Mother's Day! I hope you are all treating yourself or being treated to a very special day today! My kids are still sleeping as I type, that's what happens when you have teens and adults as kids :) But it's a quiet morning, so that's my first gift :) Ok, onto the post for today before I get delivered breakfast ( which could be lunch by the time they're all awake lol ) :)

If you noticed a bit of technology on my page, you guessed it... I'm addicted to my Iphone. I don't know how I functioned before it, of course I did, but I didn't know what I was missing. I love sending instant pics to my family and friends and being able to check my emails while I'm out, or sitting in waiting rooms or laying in bed or filling up commercials during Tv time. Ok... I'm addicted , I admit it :) It also serves me well when I'm out shopping for clients too, when I see that perfect something I can send an instant text photo of the item or email it to a client for instant review. And now I've added another App this weekend which I wanted to share with you that makes it even more fun... A few posts ago I told you about Garage Sales Tracker, a great company that lets you list your garage sales on their site and also lets you search for garage sales and Estate sales in your zip code. Well, now they have added a fabulous App for the Iphone that allows you to see it all in transit while you're out searching the world for that perfect something! If you head over to the site they are also having an incredible give-away right now for 2 free Iphones! ( or click on the link ).

I installed the App ( super easy and free too ) this weekend and I am so excited to get out there in my town and hit the flea markets , garage sales, and consignment shops too. All you have to do is go to your apps button, and search: Garage sales tracker and there it is...The neat thing I adore about this is: when I'm at one sale, instead of pulling out my list and map and trying to do it all at once, all you have to do is use the map feature right on the site and see how far or close you are to the next one. Then Google maps will show you the best way to get there :) How's that for technology?! But mind you, I'm also the most un-techy ( lol, is that a word? ) person out there, so if I can do it? You can too...

The online site is also a great way to find everything you need to know about garage sales and other sales too, I've given you the link below, just click on the picture and off you go. You can and should also list your own sales too! That way everyone can find you at the click of a button or mouse :)!

I hope you all have a wonderful Mothers day and since I can't send you all a gift myself, hopefully sharing about their Give-away will give you all a chance to win something today! :) Or at least bring you to that next great Flea Market or garages sale where you can find your own perfect something :)

Ok maybe by now my breakfast is ready?? Hmmmm, it's still a little too quiet here, LOL, I guess it will be lunch! Have a great day Moms!!

Hugs and love,

~ Cynthia ~

OK Cynthia - TRY GETTING AN iPAD!!!!
OMG! talk about addicting! Yes, I was on my phone for everything, but now? this piece of technology is OUTSTANDING!!! OMG! I love it! It's 10 times what your iPhone is. Except the only thing it doesn't have - is a phone! But . . . it's OK - you can do everything else. OH MY!
Go ahead - go check one out. But when you find out how bad you want one - DO NOT tell hubby that I told you about it. :) (hehehe)
HAGD! Karen

I got a giggle at the little set in your Etsy shop that says what is better than a good friend...a good friend with chocolate. It makes me giggle because that is me. Since I opened a candy shop.
