My Cheap Thrill!

*Skin*, babee, SKIN!!!

What??!  Git yer mind outta the gutter -- this is a G rated blog! 

I am talking about A DIFFERENT kind of SKIN! 

According to WiseGeek: "a 'skin' is a thin vinyl or plastic adhesive cover that can be attached to the outside of an electronic device (laptop, e-reader, phone, tablet, etc.)  Skins are available in hundreds of colors, designs, and motifs. Skins allow customization of your device and allow them to be uniquely personalized to fit your own design aesthetic."

I recently discovered skins, and there is simply no going back to plain ol', boring, nekkid devices!   ;o)

Yes, yes, I know... they are completely frivolous, and serve no useful or practical purpose except mere decoration... but OH, they are so stinkin' fun and cute!  And surprisingly inexpensive.  And best of all, they are are easy to apply and remove (although not reusable), and don't leave behind any gunk or residue.  Yeah, I'm hooked.

So -- ya' wanna see some SKIN?!!

My Kindle, all decked out and ready to roll:
("Psychedelic Circles" from Skin-it)


My husband's Kindle:
("Industrial" from Decal Girl )


My Dell mini netbook:
(Zebra Skin #35 from Video-GameSkins)

My phone:
(Leopard Spots from Decal Girl)


Aren't those just TOOOO CUUUUTE for words??!  I ask you this?!

So if you are now hooked, too, here are some websites for fun skins to get you started.  The sky is the limit, and they are totally addictive -- believe me!
  1. Decal Girl
  2. Skin It 
  3. Gelaskins
  4. Video Game Skins
  5. Laptop Skins
 So... go ahead, be brave and have fun!  And show some skin, babeee!   ;o)

Update on our darling Boo!

I gave a Squeak (Bentley) "update" awhile ago (please look here), and my faithful, kitty-lovin' readers have informed me that I am long overdue for one of Boo. I totally agree!

The problem is that Boo (my 4 year old seal-bicolor Ragdoll)  is CAMERA SHY! Srsly! He hhhhhhates the camera. He hates the flash. But even without the flash, my Canon Power Shot emits a red light prior to taking any picture, and apparently Boo doesn't like THAT, either!

What's a devoted Raggie mom to do??! I get out the camera out and he starts running! Really! You'd think I beat him with it, LOL! ;o)

Therefore, MOST of my Boo photos are of him SLEEPING. Which, while 100% adorable, admittedly aren't too awfully exciting!

Buuuuut, I am tenacious  ;o)  and have been working hard on getting some good *awake* pictures of him with my new phone (no evil red light!)

So here you go, an update on my adorable, quirky Boo. Complete with his own captions. (Because, yes, I KNOW how he thinks!!!)

Yes, of course I am aware that I am leaving fur all over the quilt fabric in this basket!  So what's your point?
You need to use the sink? There's another one downstairs.

You need to do laundry? More baskets downstairs.
I am the King of the Land Under the Table!
You can have your quilting fabric after my nap... *yawn!*
You want to use these quilts?  Um, not now.  Sorry.
No, I really prefer to think of this as MY bed. Thx.

Ahhhh, nappin' with my brother in a sun beam. Life is gooood!

Um, what is it about "get another basket" that you don't understand?!

This box pleases me.We will keep it. And yes, right here in the kitchen. Thx.

Isn't he ADORABLE?  We sure think so.  For more posts on our darling Boo, please look:
