Who's Calling?

When Mike got his cell phone last fall, I gave him my carrying case because it has a clip for a belt.  I just carry my phone (when I remember) in my purse.  I made myself a new cover.



I offered to make one for Mike's twelve year old grand son.  He declined.  Something about making him a middle school target.  I would have taken him for more of a leader, but he said that if owls become all the rage at his school, then I could give him one.  Some just are not cut out to be trend setters, I guess.

I do get his point of view. Seems kids these days are very self conscious and fear bullying.
But yours looks kInd of cute.

My grandson is definitely not a leader, or a trendsetter. Guess I can understand why with all the bullying these days. Some are, some aren't.

I think it is adorable. Middle School is definitely pack mentality time. Poor thing; he doesn't even know what he missed out on.

Cute - both the owl cover and your grandson's comment! At least he speaks his mind.

Very cute - the phone cover and the grandson's reaction.

It is not easy being a trend setter in middle school, especially for a guy. They only want to blend.
It is adorable though and I hope owls catch on.

Owls are very popular with my freshmen granddaughters. But maybe not with the boys. If you are into selling your crafts, I bet you could sell a ton of these covers to the girls.

Love it... do you think you could make a pink flamingo. Us boomers could start another new trend... just like the 60's.

Whatever superhero is all the rage now might be more his style ?
