Betsy, that is beautiful! It would look lovely on your Alexa too.

Thank you!

I saw there were Alexa skins on DecalGirl.  For some reason, I have no interest in skinning Alexa.  I kind of like the way she looks in her sleek blackness with blue ring.  I'll have to ponder that.

Every time I see a new picture on these thread, it makes me so glad I ordered one...they all look so good!

Betsy, it really does protect your kindle.  I just got my PW ready to send back to Amazon for the trade in and removed the skin that's been on there for nearly three years...it looks brand new  :)

I feel the same way Betsy - love the look and feel of it with the skin.

And I got the matte - have been ordering the matte finish since Decalgirl started offering it, even when it cost extra for the matte. I just like the look better, my first couple of skins were shiny.

I think mine has gotten lost in the mail.  The tracking shows it was picked up on May 10 and there is no other information.  I ordered a skin for my Voyage that was shipped on Thursday and I received it yesterday. I have sent an email to DecalGirl.  I expect I will hear back from her tomorrow.

I have to say that I love having my skin on also! Very pretty to look at and it feels so nice to hold...even with the shiny skin. It is so comfortable reading one handed without the cover. I am in love!

Problem for me is that there are so many skins I like, I can't make my mind up. I am waffling between the burlwood and the stained wood. I like the pic of the burlwood posted here, but I have not seen the stained wood on an actual picture outside the decalgirl site. I have the walnut cover.
I always liked the Quest, but I have seen online pictures of that and it looks much lighter in real life than on the website unfortunately. I like the old school look of maps with more brown and darker tan. They don't have a lot of nautical designs that are not wimsical, which I don't like. I like real old map look, or ship wheel and such things. Even a nice sail boat, but don't see much of that stuff. I think a wood design is also more neutral.

I also worry about getting the front around the flat bezel straight. It would drive me nuts if it wasn't straight there. I remember putting a black wood skin on my K3. The only skin I ever used and holy moly getting that thing straight with all the keyboard buttons, side buttons, frame. It was nerve wrecking.  :-X

I'll have to think about it some more.

The front isn't too bad, although I had to do some reapplying.  My advice is to do it very slowly and to consult some of the pics here to see the margin you have.  You can see the black line around the interior of my front skin--that's the Kindle itself.  The left side, with the buttons, should probably have been a tiny, tiny bit more to the left, but I got close enough for me.  It's not too bad since there are only the two button slots.

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:

I like that, too.  I'm really happy that I skinned it.

That is so cool!  Love that the skin has her peeking out from behind the cover!

Thanks, Betsy...I just noticed that the battery connector almost makes it look like she's wearing an earring!  I don't usually read without the cover, so I didn't see that.  I also don't rotate it, so she won't be upside down either!   :D

Very excited that my skin is at my post office and should go out today.  The email for the ship notification estimated the arrival date as the 26th and I knew it's never taken that long for skins to reach me before.

Betsy & Patricia, yours is so beautiful. I haven't skinned my Kindles in years, but this one is made for it. I'm going to go look again. I have the solid black, so I can go crazy with color. :D

I love the Mini-Me on the front cover.  What a good adaptation by the artist of the design for the Oasis!

My 2 skins just arrived today...very quickly too! I used the super saver and they got here in a couple of days. Even local mail doesn't make it in a couple days sometimes. Anyway, now I can't decide which one I want to use first. I got the Poppy Gardens and Flamingo Sunset. Once I decide I'll be back with pictures. I haven't skinned the last few kindles but I'm looking forward to doing it again. All the pictures posted so far look great!

I was looking at the Flamingo Sunset. What's the front like on it.

It's very nice. I think I'm going with that one since it's nearing summer and it looks beachy.  I'll take a picture when I'm done.
