Cool Gadget

Spotted: Phone or Ipod shield – get Batfink ‘my wings are shields of steel’ appeal. Scratches, stains and smudges are all impenetrable against this smart piece of techie engineering... moulded to your phone.

I only rave so much about it because a friend of mine invented it... and it is waaaaaay much better than a skin! No rubbery silicone stuff - just this sleek invisible thin shield. So my new blackberry gets dressed this weekend (just wish I had a nice white with rhinestone blackberry like Cynthea - creator of Doodlebug!!)

Well the Stitches show was interesting. It REALLY was quiet - and one of the major exhibitors had opted out... so not sure how it will fair (*groan) for next year. I met Mr Display Dynamics and spent a 'double snap' moment going through business catch phrases (a fun game I so recommend for passing time... you know the deal Bob!)

I am looking forward to SMAC (which is the French trade show.) It is vibrant and colourful - and packed to the rafters with bead sellers (and toned and tanned Italians - or was that just me lucky enough to be exhibiting next to them?!!) I did spot a home kiln for making your own beads - it was what our Italian neighbours were selling... and I also spotted it at CHA (although not from their company...) Beads - are they really ALL THAT any more? I think it has cooled somewhat, and the fiddling got the better of us all!



OKAY - I have a little challenge for any bloggers out there. It will involve you all getting free stuff to 'test' and review for me on your blogs... Anyone up for free stuff (I think we have 500!) Just log your interest via a comment - and I will be contacting everyone for addresses in the next month or so.

P.S It is a scrapbook related product - and there is no catch bar the review (*honest) that I am going to ask you to post on your blog...

Later, Becks x
