I finally bought my first ipod! For several years I have wanted one. I just could not bring myself to spend over $200.00 on one (for me that is). Both of the kids and the hubby had one though. (Hello, my name is Lesley Chandler and I am a poor abused/neglected mother and wife...LOL).
I have known about podcasts for some time now and always thought that if I ever get myself an iPod that I would love podcasts....TRUE THAT!!!
Oh, first let me say that I was wrong about the price! Not all of the iPods are that expensive. They vary in terms of space and price. More space....more price. So, I got an Ishuffle for only 45.00 at walmart which says it has enough space for about 250 songs ( I believe that is what it said). So I bought it. I could not wait to get home and download Itunes.
After I got all that done, I downloaded some of my favorite music using my Paypal account....YES, isn't that great?...they accept Paypal. Then, I clicked on the PODCAST section. Then ART (oh yes) and I downloaded several CRAFTCAST shows. It was free and it only took a second or two. Then I went and bought the little connection device so I could listen to my ipod in the car (it was about 9.99) at Walmart.
So today, on my way to Midland (35 min) drive, I was able to listen to show #111. It really hit home with me. It is with Sheri Gaynor the author of Creative Awakenings and it was so timely for me. It was an awesome interview....very insightful...you must check it out if you have not already.
I'm so loving making these art handbags. This is a sneak peak of Art Bag Number 4. Number 3 is on the sewing machine and not picture ready.
One more thing and I will close, I picked up a book today that I really enjoyed. It is called "Ignore Everybody....and 39 other keys to creativity" by Hugh MacLeod (language warning). Pick it up and give it a looksie, I think you might like it.
