gadgets-is it possible

probably one of the most used gadgets is a clock,i now a few talented people here have the programming skills to make these with ease (i dont) so my question is,is it possible to make a gadget that is customizable?what i mean is the programming side of it is all done the shape numbers and hands all sorted but the actual background people could add themselves like a logo or even a photograph.
