A little indulgence

So, I have a smartphone and my first 2 year contract was ending. I renewed it and with the renewal I got a new phone. As the new phone is a little larger than my old one, I needed a new cover. I found a website where I could make my own cover for not a lot of money and so I did! I used a photo of the The Crucible painting my mother had made for my birthday last year, the cover came in today and voilà, here it is…


I love it!! It came out a  bit darker than I wanted (the flash makes this look lighter than it is), but that’s OK.

So, I have painted Richard on the cover and when I switch my phone on, there he is again (at The Old Vic’s stage door) before I swipe my code to unlock it! And once the  phone is unlocked, I have my own husband (and the behind of one of my cats) to admire.

Ah, the sweetness of little indulgences! 🙂

  1. This is beautiful – a phone case that is truly unique, that reminds you of your mother, the talented artist, and the other artist chap, too 😉 Great investment – and actually a very discreet fan item. People might even think you are an art buff 😉

    1. Actually, I really do like art (the case for my prescription sunglasses feature’s Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’ painting) so this ties in nicely with that. But mostly yes, it discretely disguises my raging RA fangirl tendencies. 🙂

  2. sehr schön und sehr individuell! Du hast ja auch eine sehr kreative Vorlage! Mein Sohn hat das auch gemacht für sein ipad. Ich finde die Idee toll die eigene Phonehülle zu kreieren 🙂

    1. Ja, ich habe die Kreativität meiner Mutter gut ausnutzen können. 🙂 Hat Dein Sohn selber etwas entworfen oder auch eine bestehende Vorlage benutzt? Ich bin leider selbst nicht so kreativ, dass ich selbst was total neues entwerfen könnte.


      1. Er hat ein Bild aus einem Computerspiel mit einem Drachen auf die Hülle kopiert und einen Text dazu geschrieben. Innen steht auch noch sein Name 🙂 Gekostet hat das Ganze 40 Euro, das ist okay, wenn man sich ansieht was eine ipad Hülle von apple kostet 🙂

    Love it! Very nice. Your mom’s painting is lovely and the pose of your hubby on the couch is very much like my fav pic of RA during the Hobbit filming on the couch with his ipad or whatever it is. Nice touch!
