In a world where your smartphone can do everything you never thought possible - there are still times I would much rather have a simple gadget handy to do a simple task.
Like a kitchen timer.
But I want a cute one!
Back to the future, I mean - now... the pro's of having a smartphone today include having a timer in it... SO why would I want or need an old school kitchen timer? Besides wanting something cute on my desk?
OK - here's why...
Because it's actually faster for me to reach for this cute little frog, and it's more fun to crank him 5 minutes and go, go, go! - than it is to look at my phone, find the icon, set the time and hit start. #boring!
That's as simple as I can explain it.
Now which one here is the cutest? The Frog, Te Ladybug, The Owl or The Penguin?
I like them all, but I think I'm leaning towards the frog. I wonder if that says something about my personality?
Maybe - who knows.
What was that? What am I going to use this timer for? Did you just ask that? I was just wondering.
I'll tell you. I'll give you a hint.
I time all my tasks. I've got so much stuff online to do. I am always all over the place. The world of online social media and places to promote art and everything gets to be so overwhelming I tend to get lost without a schedule and a timer.
So what do I do? In a nutshell (that would make a cool kitchen timer, like a walnut or something?) Anyway - In a nutshell I cruise pinterest, tumblr, deviantart, behance, twitter, facebook - and other places like that. I cruise it looking for stuff to like and reblog and to make quick connections with people, but I only spend 5 minutes per site doing that. But doing it everyday makes a difference.
Here are the links for these cute little guys or you can always click their pictures, too!
