I got this iPhone case 7 months ago while I was visiting Tokyo. As usual, the mega stationery/crafts shop LoFT always carries a large selection of electronics accessories & cases. I knew I would find one for my new cellphone at LoFT.

I ended up getting this rather simple case. It’s a soft pink color & has a sheep polka dot print all over. I say they could either be happy sheep, or fluffy cotton balls with smiley faces. I like this case, not only because it looks feminine (& I’ve been trying to become more feminine, less tomboy lately), but also because it is a very thin case.

I’ve used hard-shell cases in the past, ones that are meant for harsh conditions, & they tend to be bulky & uncomfortable to use. This new case is quite thin, yet it is still extremely durable. It also protects my phone in case I drop it (which I have done several times already). This case is made from a flexible plastic-like material, & the outer texture is rubberized for a good no-slip grip. It’s not a full wrap-around case, so it’s perfect for when you need to charge your phone or plug in headphones with a chunky plug. I used to use an Uncommon brand case, & every time I needed to charge my phone, I had to pop out the bottom of the case to get the plug to fit. With this case, there is easy access all around.

I feel a bit disappointed that I didn’t DIY myself another “gem-ed out” cellphone case like I did for my previous phone. Perhaps I will make another DIY case again, but first, I must think of a new design for my next case. Time to browse ETSY… Cheers!

I’ve been wanting a blinged-out, bedazzled, crystalized cell phone case for a long time.  However, I was having a really tough time finding a case that I really liked.  The more I searched, the more frustrated I was getting.  All of the cases I saw online or in-store were not to my liking (either not a color I liked, or not a design I liked).  I found a few online shops that offered customizing services, but those options were extremely expensive.  Not only were the crystalized cases I found very expensive, I was also unsure of the quality of the cases.

Soooo, I gave up on trying to find a ready-made crystalized cell phone case that I thought was “the one” & decided to make my own custom cell phone case.  By doing this, I was able to choose the materials I wanted, & I was able to customize my case however I liked.  Also, I found this method to be quite cost saving, & it gave me a sense of self-accompishment.  Well, here’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for.  Let’s take a look at my finished DIY project.

my finished project: custom iPhone case

Aleen’s Platinum Bond Glass & Bead crafting glue used in my project

my private collection of Swarovski crystals & plastic rhinestone beads

Materials Used:

  1. pink plastic shell cover for iPhone 4/4s (color: sweet pink w/ glitter effect)
  2. mixed rhinestone beads
  3. Swarovski crystal beads
  4. crafting bond glue

I bought this inexpensive case from an online Japanese retailer that ships overseas to most countries.  I also got all the rhinestone beads from Etsy.  The Swarovski crystals came from my own private crafts supplies collection.  After arranging & gluing all of the beads, I allowed the crafting glue to set & dry for at least 1 full day before using the case.  Et voilà!  There you go.  That’s the end of it. ❤

I haven’t posted on this blog for a few weeks.  I’ve been busy with some major wedding details, moving in to my new place, & I’m also (currently…like right now) vacationing at my sister’s place down in Los Angeles to spend time with my niece & nephew.

Oops.  Did I forget to mention that the whole reason I am down in Los A. is because my cousins threw me a Bridal Shower party?!  My bad.  I’m not a party-person (at all), but I really appreciated all the time & effort my cousins put into this dainty little affair.  It was fun.

Well, anyway…enough with the “appetizers”.  Let’s get to the “meat & potatoes” of this post.  It’s nothing special.  Just a quick peek at my current cell phone case, phone wallpaper(s), & laptop background images…
