I ♥ Technology

It's no secret.  I am a robot, thus I ♥ technology.  For holidays my husband always asks for gifts like tools, welding supplies, drills, you know, boring stuff like that and I have no clue what he's talking about.   So I give him technology that he needs and just doesn't know it.  ;)  It's what I know, and I feel confident in these purchases.

Anyway, I have had an iPad 1 since they came out.  It's loved.  It's slow. It is inundated with kids apps galore.  I always have to fight the kids for it.  I can't get the new fancy schmancy shiny apps because my iPad is outdated.  So sad. 

If you recall on this post, I asked for suggestions on how to keep all your 'quilty' ideas manageable and organized.  The fabulous Michelle  gave me the suggestion of using Evernote, as her husband swears by it.  I had been using OneNote to hold all my tutorials, inspiration etc., but I couldn't get it on my sad old iPad. Evernote is very similar to OneNote.  So I downloaded it on my PC and LOVED it.  I immediately moved all my stuff from OneNote to my new Evernote account.  Then I ran to my iPad only to find out, it was one more app I couldn't get.  Boo!!

Mama needs a new iPad.  

Isn't this cover the cutest?
 I ended up going with the iPad Air.  She is so sweet.  Light and fluffy.   Ahhhh.  Bliss.

Eeek!  Quilty shapes here....

So, I have 3 tabs running in Evernote for all my quilty goodness.  I have tutorials, Patterns I ♥ and Inspiration.

I know some of you may say, 'Well Pinterest can keep all your stuff too', but I get a little overwhelmed with Pinterest.  I put stuff on there that I like, think oh that's cute, but then I never look at it again.  Plus, I get annoyed by having to log in, click something, then be launched somewhere else...that may or may not be the correct link.  I also get extremely sidetracked on Pinterest.  I have had to set myself time limits for when I am in the Pinterest universe.

But hey, that's me.  Remember I am a Robot and the more streamlined and organized, the better I function. ;)

The best part is, if I'm at my computer, and find something I want to put on my Evernote, it automatically syncs to my iPad.  LOVE it.  

We are becoming best friends. ♥

See?  Technology is A-Mazing. 

**Don't worry, no old outdated iPads were harmed in the update.  iPad #1 has been adopted by the Robot Children, who are very happy and excited to have her as their own. ;)**
