dizzymommie 04-15-2011 03:15 PM

Oh, I can't wait for this party to get started! I'm looking forward to seeing all the *EXTRA SPECIAL* projects the Divas have saved just for the par-tay!

I'm going to go clean my lenses so it'll all be crystal clear!

It HAS to be pink, Moe! It's the colour I think of when I think of you :)

My daughter is eying one and I was wondering if anyone can give me the differences between that and a laptop. Trying to figure out which would be most beneficial long term for her.

Just two hours to go :)

I would be all over the purple, Moe. :) And stop talking about taxes...I haven't even started ours yet. Yuck.

I am VERY excited to see what other projects the Divas have created - I know we will ALL "ooooooo" and "ahhhhhhh"...

JWill795 04-15-2011 04:17 PM

I want to go shopping!!! Can't it be 9 yet?

I've had mine on all day. Oops, I probably shouldn't have said that!!!!! I did do work today. You should see my clean kitchen counters sans kindergarten papers from the past couple of weeks.

Crafty Math Chick 04-15-2011 04:38 PM

Less than 90 minutes!! :)

Hey Marisa! I just went through this debate with Mark the other day and here's what I learned... the main difference between an iPad and a laptop is that you can't install programs on an iPad. You're just stuck with the apps that are available. Which is great for browing the internet, entertaining yourself, watching Netflix, etc., but in my case, where I want something that will run the software for my Cricut, the iPad isn't going to work out. {pout, now I have to come up with some other justification for getting one! LOL}

lisabeepianolovin 04-15-2011 05:07 PM

Whew! I managed to squeak in comments on all the hops this week! Amazing projects! Stunning details--It seems like everyone REALLY loved the sets this month--but then I say that EVERY month! LOL!

Now if I could just win one day's worth of prizes for the hops.....LOL!

adctd2stamping 04-15-2011 05:08 PM

No IRS blues for us this year...and they extended the deadline to Monday the 18th!
52 more minutes til the party gets started, Whoo hooo

I was thinking the same thing. Especially this week. I decided what I wanted to do, but was thinking those flowers would look so nice. I'm not good at being patient, though. So maybe next week's card.... :wink:

Julee's right. The apps are limited. I would get a laptop if you're wanting her to use it through school etc. We got ours as a second computer to have downstairs... browse the internet, convenient to take when traveling, waiting at docs offices, work breaks for me {since I work for a large corporation and lots of sites are blocked- I can still sneak peeks off and on!!}.
