Fisher Price Event for Expectant Moms: Great Mom in the Making!

Welcome to Motherhood Life-changing. Challenging. Emotional. Surprising. Rewarding. So many words to describe motherhood, all of them true. Yes, it can be crazy. And yes, it won’t be sunshine and rainbows every day. But for every trying day there will be many more joyous days. Like when your baby finally calls you “mama”. Or the time they smoosh you in a bear hug out of the blue. At those times, you remember why you’re a parent. Soon, your little newborn will become a toddler and before you know it, they’ll start school. Along the way, they’ll need your help to grow into person they’re meant to be.19956621_10156397034147995_7455801987711996022_o.jpg

#GerifiedPH: Canon Pix Mommy Weekend x Pixma E Series Launch

First day of school was a success, no separate-anxiety symptoms, no cranky I-want-my-mommy attitude. Crying hormone is nowhere in sight, just a little hyper-activity running around, wiggling in place and voice in high pitch – what a promising first school year! Then I opened his assignment notebook. First sentence in the first page of it- a homework. A simple whole image of Kulayot in paper. Wow! I never thought kindergarten school would punch parents like this on first day. Punch is the term, but its not that violent, just a tad of hyperventilation and panic. Is it due tomorrow or the next Monday?

Apparently, it was due next week. That was a relief. I read the notebook halfway from falling asleep and preparing for tomorrow’s work.

The thing is, school today requires current technology which includes  a laptop/desktop, a printer and an internet connection.

Canon Pixma E Series

Canon introduced their latest addition in their line up for Ink Efficient All-In-One printers—the PIXMA Ink Efficient E410 and E470. These are the latest printers equipped with low-cost, high yield ink cartridges to ensure affordable cost of operation.

Wireless and Mobile Printing

Any home within a local wireless network can easily connect to the PIXMA E470 through its built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. Even without a wireless router, the PIXMA E470 is able to support direct wireless connection to mobile devices or laptop computers using its Access Point Mode.

Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY App

When paired with the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app, users of the PIXMA E470 can print and scan documents and photos using any mobile device running with an iOS or Android operating system with wireless connectivity.

From the app, users can monitor ink levels, adjust printer settings, and register their printers to new cloud services, while the remote copy function allows them to make a document copy even when they are not physically beside the printer.

Enhanced Operability and Productivity Features

The PIXMA E470 is designed for easy wireless setup and connection, switching easily between wireless infrastructure connection, and Access Point Mode connection.

Both the PIXMA E470 and E410 print at 8.0 images per minute (ipm) when printing black and white, and 4.0 ipm when printing in color. The printers also support intelligent power management in the Auto Power ON/OFF setting, allowing automated shut down during idle period and power up when a print job is received.  This setting can be configured easily using the printer driver, or using the PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app.

LifeAfterBreakfast

Aside from the delish dishes, guests were in for a quick workshop hosted by Ms. Alessa Lanot of Life after breakfast Blog. The activity demands creativity in designing a mosaic using colored pens and a watercolor print of floras and patterns. The mini workshop outputs were printed on a canvass using the latest all-in-one Canon Pixma E470.
