Oops! I dropped my phone…

A couple of weeks ago when I was out for dinner, I dropped my phone on a concrete floor. The phone landed face down with a loud smacking sound. I felt sick. I picked it up. The power was off, so I assumed that it was broken. I was relieved when I hit the power button and the little white apple appeared. Hooray! All was not lost. I was a little upset that the case was toast, but since it saved my phone, it seemed a reasonable price to pay.

I realized that I needed a new cover, because I certainly don’t trust myself to carry a phone without protection. What to do? What to do? I remember how difficult it was to select a case the first time. The selection is overwhelming. And now with Christmas shopping in full swing, the stores would make choosing one even more of a nightmare. I decided to check my options on-line to see what I could find. Imagine my delight in finding several sites where I could not only order a case, but I could design my own! I wanted to showcase something that I had created, and I selected a photograph of my tile work on the side of our house. The case arrived today, and I love it! What do you think? I like the way the design wraps around the sides as well.new phone case side view of phone caseKush the cat was trying to get in on the photo shoot, walking all over the desk and getting in the way.

  1. Terri, I meant to get to this post as soon as you published it but that thorny thing called life got in the way. What a cool case. It does look like mosaic tile. And yeah, Kush, is such an adorable camera hog! The colors on the case do complement her luxurious coat.

    1. Thanks, V. It must be lovely to wear a fur that just goes with everything, and be politically correct while doing so! Kush is so lucky.

    1. Sorry to hear that, Peter. As soon as it fell I was imagining what a pain and expense it would be to replace it, so I feel your pain!

      1. It’s the second time this year! It costs about $90 to fix, so it’s not too bad. It might be an incentive to get a new one though.

    1. Thanks, Colline. I wanted something that was easy to spot when I put it down. I couldn’t use a quilt fabric photo because it would be too easy to lose my phone in the studio, but this should work. Have a great day.
