So recently I came into possession of a little smart phone.  Some sort of Samsung.  Pretty cool.

It has wireless access so I can use it on the internet and it has a pretty amazing camera on it so I can take lots of fun pictures when I'm making your pens.  I hear it could also work as a cell phone, but I don't have a sim card and I'm not too worried about that part.  ;)

 

The main reason I got this thing is so I could go onto Instagram and share my work there, and it's been FUN.

I have posted more photos and short videos in the last month than I ever would have using a proper camera that I'd have to hook up to my computer and then edit and then upload and then... ugh.  

 

And something else that's cool about Instagram is that I can share automagically to Twitter and Facebook.  

 

The coolest thing is that with those hashtag things (which I finally learned about) I can organize my photos.  So if you search #newtonpens or #mrnewtonsartclass you'll come up with a WHOLE BUNCH of photos of work in my shop and my class.  

 

So follow me over at Instagram to see what the heck is going on.  :)

I love that you said "automagically." (*Smiling.)

So far, I have managed to stay out of those social media.... :D

 

In a way, a forum like FPN is also part of social media, but I see this slightly different.....

I like the ease and rapidity I can post pics to the Instagram.

It also makes emailing photos to people a LOT easier.
