I upgraded my iPad case | How About Orange

I upgraded my iPad case

Before: A super stylish iPad sleeve made from bubble wrap, packing tape, and one of the stickers that came in the box, created the night before I took our new iPad on a road trip. Yeah, it's pretty sweet, all right.

After: I wanted a more... shall we say respectable?... option for the long term, so I bought this brown herringbone number. The best part is the orange lining. I like it.

Hey, I like the bubble wrap case!

Grandma G said...

I like the first one better.

Well, no... not really. ;)

So you ordered it for the lining, huh? Too bad it's not reversible!

Nice!!

I love that and the price is right...The Apple store has such a limited selection.

Such a cute case. Can I ask how you feel about your ipad? I would love to own one but making the purchase seems difficult to justify.

I am also seeking justification to buy !

I'm with the Bubble Wrap crowd ;)

Seriously, sweet case!

I couldn't get rid of it... it has sentimental value. Maybe my iPad can have different outfits.

And do I like the iPad? I do! I don't have a laptop or a smart phone, so it's perfect for me. And now that we have it, Alex doesn't want to use his laptop anymore for general internet surfing, email, etc. This thing is easier.

Oooh you know how to shop!

Maybe if you spray the bubble case orange, you could patent the design?! ;D

Great new case. :)

A friend of mine handmakes iPad cases in leather. (Kind of orangish if you squint and have a good imagination...)

I LOVE your creativity! Do you have any ideas for a jewelry case/holder that would display my bracelets and necklaces in a fun way? And I like the second case :)

I know, I get the respectability thing. But, the bubble wrap just looks more protective. I've had my phone for a year and it's still got the protective plastic sticky sheets that came on it over the glass. I'm all for the protective. Maybe you could slide the bubble wrap inside the new one. ;-)
