My iPad arrived

My iPad arrived Thursday morning and I've spent quite a bit of time since playing around with it.  It took quite awhile just putting in usernames and passwords to the various applications.  The touch screen is a little tricky but I bought a stylus this morning and that's made a huge difference.  Typing without a keyboard is slow but my daughter has a keyboard I can try out.  I think I'm really going to love the iPad this summer at the camp.  With the 3G option and the 'pay-as-you-go' plan, I'll have internet access.

Looking at it now...it's not exactly color coordinated, is it?!  The wallpaper and the bag just don't go with the cover.  Maybe I'll make another bag and choose a different wallpaper.  I chose the pink cover because it's not something I'd normally choose.  What I really wanted was purple.  No luck.  I just didn't want to choose black or gray as I normally do.  Amazing how the simplest decisions can be the most difficult for me.

I made another block for the 501 Project.  I think this brings the count to 245.  I think that's 123 blocks in 2011.  At this rate, I should finish the project sometime in 2014.

Building Blocks II

Hope you had a good day.

Enjoy your Ipad. As long as you are happy with your accessories, does it matter if they match?

Very pretty block. Are you starting a new color scheme?

Oh fantastic. I love my iPad. But I cannot make such nice and beautiful case for it. Yours looks great.
