I can't wait!

I just had to share this little gem with everyone!

A woman from the local Historical Society demonstrated the greatest little hand held/lightweight/amazing scanner last Sunday and I am one of the first pre-production orders. It comes out in October and it's called a Flip Pal. It doesn't need to be hooked to your computer as it has a chip.... you can scan in books, in albums, pictures on a wall. AND... if it's a large picture you can scan it in sections and the software stitches it together for you automatically. I could go on and on about it... but here is a link to her page that describes the Flip Pal. If you click on the word Flip Pal on her page it will take you to the manufacturers page where you can purchase the scanner. First look at the Youtube videos though... you will be so excited by the possibilities.

If you go directly from her page to the manufacturer's page and make your purchase she will get credit for doing the demo and could earn a scanner for the Historical Society. They could definitely use one for old documents and pictures!

Can't wait to get this. I can't tell you how many times I've had to verrrrry delicately smash an old book or try to get a picture out of an album. No more... that little gem will fit right in my purse!

Have a great weekend...

Best... Canace
