Giveaway #1: Adorable Felt Cell Phone Case by FeltLLang

Before I dive into giving stuff away, I should back up and post an explanation. Why three giveaways all at once, instead of my usual one? And why three giveaways of such similar items? Well, it's like this.

Back in August, my dear sweet darling husband decided to do a load of laundry for me. It was his own work clothes, so it only seemed fair. A couple of hours later, I asked to see a picture he had snapped with his phone...only he didn't know where his phone was. Not on the table. Or his desk. Or in the living room. It wasn't in his car. And that was when he realized...it had to be in his pants pocket. It sure was, and although it was very clean, it was no longer functional.

So off he went to the Verizon store for a replacement. One of their special offers was a free smart phone - something that neither of us had ever had. Knowing full well that I would use it more than he would, he generously took my old phone and presented me with a shiny new Samsung Gem. Which ultimately turned out to be a ginormous pile of poo, but I didn't know that at the time. I should have gotten my first clue when there was no case made to fit the thing.

Okay, you're with me so far? I have a brand new smart phone with no case or cover of any sort. Time to head for Etsy and see what's out there. There's a lot out there, but three cases in particular jumped out at me for their cuteness and uniqueness. I asked all three sellers if they might be interested in a blog review, never expecting that all three would jump on board - but they did!

Therefore, I have three gorgeous phone cases to show off, and three more to give away to a lucky reader.

Since then, I've sold the horrific smart phone and downgraded back to a nice, normal dumb phone that will actually allow me to make phone calls. And it still fits nicely in all three cases, which I love switching between and showing off.

So, are you ready to see case number one? This was the first one that I received, and it is darling.


This case was made by Yujin Kim, the creative genius behind FeltLLang on Etsy. Yujin recently moved to the U.S. from South Korea. She has always loved the arts (especially drawing), majored in the arts in college, and taught art to elementary school students before her big move. Now she lives with her husband in Cincinnati, where she began crafting in her free time. Her hobby led her to Etsy, where she now has an amazing shop full of adorable felt covers for most electronic devices, plus felt checkbook covers, wallets, keychains, etc.

All FeltLLang items are made of high quality polyester felt from Korea, which is very durable. Most items can be customized for size, color, etc. Yujin loves illustrating her creations with cute Asian influences, and says that she takes pride in each item that she creates for each and every customer.

As you can see above, the case that Yujin sent to me is purple (love!) with the CUTEST little balloon-holding bunny, and beautiful floral accents. Rachael immediately tried to take it away from me, before she even knew what it was. (I'm sure she'd have found something to keep in it if I'd been willing to let go.)  She customized it for me to fit my piece of junk smart phone, but my new phone - which is a bit smaller - still fits very nicely inside. The top strap is wide enough that it keeps anything inside from falling out. The case is so soft inside, so as not to scratch the face of the phone, and padded enough to cushion it in case of a fall too. (I know this because I dropped my phone within an hour after putting it in the case. Not the case's fault; I'm just a klutz that way.)

Go go go, check out the FeltLLang Etsy shop - there is SO much cuteness there!

Yujin has made a case just for one lucky reader...I'm not sure which one it is, so you get to be pleasantly surprised when it arrives! Just check out the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. Contest ends at 11:59 PM EST on October 16. Winners will be emailed immediately, and announced here too.

Don't forget to check out the other two giveaways as well!

  42. Hi
    Cell phone covers are an economical way to offer protection and provide a new look to your phone. Each faceplate is designed to snap on over the handset of your particular model. No additional tools are required to make the transformation.

  45. As previously mentioned, there is a plethora of different cases on the market today that vary in form and function. A type of cover called a body glove protects and adds durability to the phone. Body gloves are normally made of neoprene that fits tightly around the casing of the phone.
