Carts and No Horses

phone_clearbackWe have a strange variety of stuff at work and most of it is of no interest to me. No, I drag home all the stuff we throw away. After being off for a couple of days, I returned to find nifty looking clear cases for iPhones. My mind took off with all the possibilities of altering them. Reverse decoupage! My own artwork! Then I became flummoxed trying to open said case. My coworker figured it out in seconds. Yeah, just like having to get a kid to open your child-proof bottles for you.


My creative giddiness was quickly dashed on the sharp rocks of crushing reality. The case is for an iPhone. The iPhone home screen is printed on the little insert card. The iPhone doesn’t fit. Nope. Not even close. And I tried with the fervor of the wicked step-sister trying to shove her flat feet in those glass slippers. Damn.


My current case is cool so it’s all good. But an opportunity to have a super cool case would have rocked.


  1. This had me giggling - I'm sure you could do something with the iPhone case; store beads in it or something. Anyway, I discover you are kindly following my Journaling the Journal blog - thankyou so much, and I hope you enjoy your visits.

  2. Thank you for your kind comments. I throughly enjoy reading your blog.
