The iPhone game

I recently purchased an iPhone 7 and I absolutely love it! The size, the weight, the features etc. I agonized over whether I should get it as soon as it was launched. I finally had my chance to upgrade to the 7 and I have no regrets.

Now, the annual iPhone has arrived. This version… iPhone 8.

As a gadget lover I love following the technology trends and watching how far we’ve come. From Bluetooth connections to drones, green screens to flat screens we’ve seen all the developments. Of course I was excited to see what Apple had to offer with the iPhone 8.

Hmmm…

I read all the specs and watched the forever genius ads and videos about the iPhone 8, but I didn’t expect the newest development Apple had to offer was made of glass!! What the..? This took me back to the iPhone 4 when the glass would crack on both the front and the back of the phones if dropped. Why, Apple? Why?! I celebrated the fact that a phone case is optional but now I look at the future of iPhones and I’m confused as to why such advanced phone technology is contained in glass. This is such a disappointment. I’m sure the bells and whistles are amazing, however if it’s housed in glass how could that technology be protected without a case? It just seems odd that the engineers picked this kind of packaging. It just doesn’t make sense.

I don’t see the iPhone 8 or the X in my future. The seduction of the camera advancements almost had me, but the glass design totally lost me.

Who knows? I may change my mind after a few demos and unboxings or I may jump off the iPhone bus. For now, I’ll be cuddling my iPhone 7 doing selfies, making videos, running my businesses and playing on social media for as long as iOS allows.

My Happy Place

I’ve been going to my “Happy Place” almost every weekend and I fall more and more in love with it. It’s one thing to support my art, but it’s another thing to receive the equal, if not more, support I have had lately.

My dolls are on display at MacPherson Arts & Crafts and I’m so excited!

I can’t explain how happy I’ve been too! My customers have given me amazing feedback and it’s such a gratuitous feeling to know that my art is helping people.

I’ve also seen many new artists’ work and children to adults are very intrigued by what I do. Yes, I am excited about the talent that has emerged from the love of baby dolls. As a Canadian woman, the joy of being able to go to a physical store that is the largest brick and mortar store in North America is something to be proud of. Every time I go to it I feel like a kid in a candy store!

I can look at any doll kit, supplies, clothes, etc all in one day. In this world of online shopping it’s such a relief that it is possible to shop and physically know what I’m buying. Since I’m very impatient it also makes getting the things I need instantly. I don’t have to wait for my order and stalk my tracking numbers.

It’s nice to know that my Happy Place is just around the corner.

I’ve made some vlogs lately so check them out on my YouTube channel so you can see the what the store looks like.

I love it so much!
