Rarely do I buy things that are completely frivolous. I don’t buy things that are really expensive either…but I recently caved in and did something out of the ordinary for me. Here’s my story.
You all know that I do some work with U.S. Cellular here on the blog. Well one of my perks from that is that they recently sent me a new gold Samsung S6. I had and S5 before and really liked it so I was excited to get an S6.
Well all phones need a case right?? Typically I get the heavy duty wango-fango case the nothing can happen to your phone if you have it on. Those cases cost a lot-like $40 on Amazon. The cases are nice but it makes the phone heavy and clumsy. I noticed that lots of my childcare parents don’t have the indestructible cases so I got to thinking why do I?? I rarely drop my phone or get myself into a situation where water damage can happen. I started to rethink if I needed all that much of a case.
From there I started searching Amazon for a phone case with a beagle on it. There were some..but none I loved. Then I started looking for one with a quilt on it. There were some..but none I loved. Kelli happen to be home when I was doing this and I said I wish I could just get a custom made case with my own photo. Kelli said- “Gee mom, I’m sure that is a possibility”. So I Google searched custom phone cases. Up came My Custom Case.
At that point I was not afraid to look. I wanted a custom case but how much would it cost?!?! If it was too much I’d be back with my old clunky indestructible case. Well I braved looking and was pleasantly surprised. It was a little more that the $40 but definitely under $50. Should I do it…should I order? Then I looked at Amazon again seeing there were plenty of cases that were $20 that could work…then I just decided to do it. I ordered a case.
It was SO-SO easy to design the case with my own picture. Upload a picture and tweak a little and within five minutes I had my case how I wanted it. I really didn’t even use any help from Kelli.
Isn’t it so cute?? That’s our calendar quilt with Ruby sitting on it. How cool is that?!?!? I got a quilt AND my own dog Ruby all in one picture. I love it. I love it a lot.
I love it so much that I can say I have absolutely not on single drop of buyer’s remorse.
After seeing it one of my kids said to me…”really mom. You’ve become one of “those” dog owners. Well I guess I have.
About my service from the company…all reports are good. They were prompt and the website was really easy to navigate.
Like I said, I am typically not a frivolous person but who knows…maybe I’m changing as I age…or maybe I’ve just become one of “those” dog owners. Whatever it is…I love the case!
P.S. I hate to be an enabler but they are running a 20% off sale through 8/24. The cases would be great for a gift for some who has everything…a great way to show off your love of quilting…just a great gift in general.
