Most of us have a love-hate relationship with our phones. We love being able to get information or contact others when we need to, yet at the same time, we hate having to carry these expensive little gadgets around and always be accessible to others. There was a time before cell phones, yes kids, it’s true.
We once used these things called “pay phones” when we needed to get in touch on the go. We would actually sit in our cars and listen to the radio as we drove, or better yet, have a conversation with the people riding along with us.
Movie theaters didn’t have to remind us to turn our ring tones off, and no one’s wedding was interrupted by the ring of a phone.How did we survive without our phones? Quite nicely thank-you. On more then one occasion I have wished we could go back in time and never have invented the darn things, on others, I am glad to have them. So as I said, it’s a love hate thing.
Whether you love or hate your smartphone, e-reader, or tablet, they are in-fact an extension of your person. If you are a generic person, you can throw your gadget into your purse or pocket and go. If you long to personalize and decorate your things and claim them as your own, there are a number of wonderful options for you, and many of them can be found on-line, go figure.
Skins are the easiest way to add a lot of personality without a lot of bulk, and they have the added attraction of being semi-permanent and removable, leaving no damage to the case. You can find simple colored skins, or kitschy retro designs, some are artsy and quirky, and more still can be completely personalized. Today’s Wacky & Wonderful post is all about getting your skins and making your phone your own.
Just because it is “the enemy” to some, and to others a treasured extension of their being, doesn’t mean it can’t be made more appealing. If you have to tote it about, you might as well like it. You are less likely to confuse your phone with a friends if you have a unique skin on it, and it won’t get lost in a pile of gadgets on your desk if it is covered with one of these lovely skins.
Most of these skins are for the iPhone, but I have found skins for my Blackberry, Kindle, a variety of laptops, e-readers, tablets, and android phones. It is just a matter of running a search for your specific model and device and you will find a bounty of gorgeous skins to choose from.
I personally like the artsy styles, it’s nice to make something so high-tech look pretty at the same time. I can definitely see the appeal of the geekery skins, there are oodles of Star Wars, Nintendo, Zombie Apocalypse, and other skins that are just hysterical. Some of these skins are just so smart, using textures or images that transform them into something else entirely. Whatever your personal taste, know that you can find just what you are looking for, or even have custom skins made featuring your initials or images of your loved ones.
Some of these items are available for many models and a variety of gadgets, others are specialized for one type of gadget only, so please follow the links provided to check on the details and contact the seller(s) directly with any questions you might have.Have a Wacky & Wonderful day!
