Personalize Your Phone


If you are like me, I was highly non-plussed by the wallpaper background images that came pre-installed on my cell phone. Every time I slid my phone open, I would frown at the cold, often gimmicky wallpaper background that greeted me. 

I am the type of person who loves to surround herself with the lovely and the cheerful. I tried taking pictures of loved ones and placing them as my phone's wallpaper, but would inevitably be annoyed by the poor placement of the date and time (most generally smack dab in the middle of a face). 

Finally, one grey day, while writing a letter to a friend, I thought... Why not take a phone picture of my favorite stationary and then set that as my wallpaper? The fun patterns never cease to bring a smile to my face. And I no longer have to worry about whether or not the date and time will block out portions of a loved one's face. Rather, the white banner shines out against the colorful vintage prints I now use for my cell phone wallpaper. 

Let me know what you use for your phone's backgrounds.... I love getting new ideas and sharing inspiration.
