Merriment Chain ~ Day 16 ~ Santa "Claws" and iChristmas

Last July I came up with this design for a patriotic kitty.  I gave one to my brother and sister-in-law and they fell in love with it.  Both wanted kitty's for each season and holiday.  So, I have been creating more kitty's.  Yesterday I threw these two together.  Santa "Claws" and his side kick Rudy. 
They are being shipped to their new home today. 

Last night my Sweetie came home with this gleam in his eye and said "I got you something".  I knew what it was right away as we had been talking about this for a couple of weeks.  I was unsure how I felt about it though.  I don't really like technology.  It intimidates me and doesn't give me that thrill that some get from it.  I was born in the wrong era or something. 
He set it down on the couch by me and I was looking at it from the corner of my eye.  I really didn't want to pick it up.

" I am doing just fine with my TracPhone Honey.
I don't really need this Smart thingy". Was my reply. 
"You will have so much fun with it Steph.  Just give it a couple of weeks.  I know you don't need it, but after some time you will wonder what you did without it".  He said.
I told him, "sometimes life is just fine when you don't know what you are missing".  (Which is so true for so many things)
So, he set it all up, got my email on it, connected the wifi and showed me how to use the thing.
"Thank you Sweetie for the gift.  I really am excited to use it.  I can stop using my paper calendar now and people won't laugh at my stone age phone anymore".
Welcome to the Twenty First Century Steph:)

Have a wonderful Technological Day

What a sweet sweetie : ) I'm not very tech savvy. I bought myself an iPod last year & it was just too confusing & aggravating. I thankfully was able to sell it to someone else : ) By the way, thank you for the tutorials you add to your sidebar. I'm especially looking forward to trying the burlap candle holder : )

I am the same way with technology. I still have the iphone 3GS. It's so much slower than my daughter's and I have an upgrade coming, but I am so hesitant on changing. Enjoy!

Hi Steph, You will love your new smart phone - in a few weeks. I got one over the summer and after the first day was ready to give it back. I stuck with it and now I'm not sure I could live without it. It's so handy for me with my Etsy shop. ~Ann

What a sweet and caring hubby. Enjoy your phone Step. I am sure you will love it, Holly could not do without hers and neither could my friend. Me,,,, well mine is just a plain old phone and sometime I wish I didn't even have it. Have a blessed day.

We're looking to get an Iphone soon--we want to get the square that fits on it to do charge sales. We take charge, but still use the "knucklebuster" ---I am so backwards technology wise---the boys and Al are so tech savvy, but not me! Love the dollies! --Jan
