Gorgeous skin Eilene!  I almost got my favorite, called Treasure Hunt - I've got it on my Fire HD6, my PW2 and on my iPad Mini. I even found the image online and it's the desktop background on my laptop. 😳  But I decided to get something different for my Oasis. My burlwood came today, I haven't opened it yet. Soon....

Thanks! Those are some of the other ones I got. I LOVE Treasure hunt also!!!!

Oooh, that's nice.  And that's the black cover--I think that's the first pic of one I've seen!

With mine?  I've got the walnut cover, but it does look really dark in the pic, doesn't it?  Maybe because of the contrast with the skin?  Or bad lighting...or user error on the photographer's part...  They do look nice together - I've liked the burlwood skin for a looooong time, but this is the first time I've ever actually ordered one.  I did have a black woodgrain one on a Sony reader and almost ordered that for my Oasis.

Interesting!  I coulda sworn it was the black cover.  It looks great.

I had the treasure on my pw2 and loved it. I would look at it and notice all the details
Never got bored with it. Trying to find another one like that.
Journeys end has caught my eye. Any suggestions?

Aimee Stewart is the Treasure Hunt artist and I love her designs. Most are so detailed and intricate.

USPS tracking says my skin should be delivered today.

An aside, the USPS tracking has gotten much much better.  Lots of detail on the tracking this time, to includ an update this morning that "Sorting has been completed at local post office at 8:12am". (This morning at 6AM it just told me it was at my local post office.

Woohoo!

Is it OK to butt in here if I don't have an Oasis?

While I was familiar with Decal Girl's website, I'd only casually visited before and never purchased anything, but I just have to share what came for my phone today.

my babies are so pretty on my phone (apologies to my two human chillins)

Thanks, Patricia! I've never skinned a Kindle as I always thought it would make it look too busy, but I can see from the images in this thread that's not the case.

Gorgeous! 

I almost ordered a skin for my phone (iPhone 5S) but I like the current skin AND I have another skin that I like already...but if I use those up or get a different phone, I'm going to get another custom one done of another quilt of mine.

Got my skin, applied it, love it!  I wish I'd had a bit better picture of the quilt, but it was sold. :(

The quilt is "Aspen Leaves"







And here's the original quilt:

Very nice, Betsy!  I'm really liking the skins on the Oasis. I think it's because even if you use a cover, you still get a peek at the back.  I received mine today, too.  I'll attempt to post photos tomorrow.  I've never done it before.

Does everyone tend to get the matte finish?  Just curious.

I've always had the shiny before (when I skinned my K1, they didn't have the matte option; I think it took a couple years to have that option, as I recall).  I got matte this time.  I like it.

First Impressions:

After almost 24 hours with my skinned Oasis, I'm really happy that I added the skin.  It makes me happy every time I look at it (I really did like that quilt), and, since I read this device without its cover a lot, I like the way it looks and I feel it's a bit more protected.  And, I think I like the feel of it better with the skin than with the nekkid back.

I have the matte skin.
