FREE Stylish Camera Strap Cover – ENTER NOW!

UPDATE:  WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!  Congratulations, Lyndi!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

It's Bloggy Giveaway Carnival time again!  You might remember the contest I held here not too long ago.  This time, though, I'm trying something new!

Camera strap covers 032

My sister-in-law (whose the coolest gal on the planet) has just started making camera strap covers, tutus, and other super cool photography props for me!  She's thinking of starting her own shop on Etsy, but for now will be taking orders through my blog.

What better way to get her started than to give away one of her radically COOL straps here today!  AND, if you don't win today, you can always order a nifty strap from her in the future!  So, stay tuned!

The camera straps measure anywhere from 1 1/2 inches wide to 2 1/4 inches wide and come in various lengths.  Straps can be ordered to fit the exact size of your camera strap in the future.

The strap being given away today is the one I'm modeling below.  It measures 2 inches wide and is 25 1/2 inches in length.  The camera strap is lined with fleece cushioning to make it soft and to prevent it from hurting your neck.  I love mine already!  It slides on and off your camera strap easily.

Please don't judge the model or the photos.  It was either this or my 3 year old son!  What would you have me do?

Next, check back here on Thursday at 2pm to see if you won!  Easy enough, right? 

You could read my wonderful blog EVERYDAY if you really want to and then you're guaranteed not to miss a thing!

    I’m a tree hugger so my favorite gift is Sigg water bottles. :)

  • Robin - October 27, 2008 - 5:24 pm

    Those are great, I’ve been coveting a cool camera strap for a while!
    The perfect gift for me? The full version of Photoshop. Oh how I wish I could afford it… Back in the realm of the possible? A decent tripod.

  • Becca - October 27, 2008 - 6:17 pm

    Cute – these are my new favorite things! I can’t wait to get one for my mother-in-law for Christmas.
    My perfect gift would be – having my husband home so I can have some ‘me time’!

  • Beth A. - October 27, 2008 - 9:27 pm

    These are great! Would make those long walks around the park, zoo, and botanical gardens with a camera around my neck a little more pleasant! My biggest wish for holidays (my birthday is in there too) would be for a new Canon XSI or 40D camera…but that is wishful thinking :)

  • Tiffany - October 27, 2008 - 9:42 pm

    I’m going to need one of those. I love the leopard print! I am asking Santa for a crumpler photo bag. We had fun at the zoo, thanks for calling us!

  • reeva - October 27, 2008 - 10:29 pm

    i’d love to have one of these.
    Thanks for a generous giveaway. I hope I’m the lucky winner.

  • Leila - October 27, 2008 - 11:29 pm

    LOVE these!! You know a photographer-in-training like me needs one of these adorable things!!!!!!!!
    My fav gift – personalized ginger bread houses from Williams Sonoma. You can get the person’s name written on the front of the house and it is delivered to them in wonderful packaging. My family members rave about this gift all the time!

  • Kim - October 28, 2008 - 8:15 am

    My favorite gift idea is something from the heart. I love homemade, handmade items. Buying things are nice too but something made by those who love you is the greatest gift. My grandmother used to make the most beautiful quilts. I still have one she made my parents along time ago and I cherish it. One day I will pass it down to my daughters and hope one day they will then pass it down to their children. :)

  • Lindsay - October 28, 2008 - 12:22 pm

    My favorite gift right now are photo books…I love making them! They are such a personal gift. My kids could sit and look at them for hours!

  • Julie - October 28, 2008 - 2:50 pm

    My favorite gift to give was the personalized 8 x 11 calendar I made for my dad last year with pictures of my daughter from every month of the year (she was born in January, so it worked out well). I would love to do that again this year. I should get started on that!!

  • d - October 28, 2008 - 6:31 pm

    My favorite gift idea is books. I like to pick out books for children and giftcards to bookstores for adults.
    I love this strap cover. I am adding it to my list to my Christmas list. If I don’t win maybe my husband will get me one.

  • melanie - October 28, 2008 - 7:02 pm

    I like the pink pastel floral one! What a neat idea

  • mannequin - October 28, 2008 - 9:37 pm

    I like the red polka dot floral one in the last shot. Maybe she should name them for easier selection?
    I certainly don’t mean to be rude as I love them and would love to win one LOL! It’s just a suggestion as people like things as easy to do as possible. I think they are absolutely charming!

  • feather k - October 28, 2008 - 9:50 pm

    What a nifty idea!!! I am looking into a new scanner…why weren’t pics always digital???

  • Mudpies And Mary Janes - October 28, 2008 - 10:21 pm

  • Crystal - October 29, 2008 - 9:14 pm

  • Han5nah T. - October 29, 2008 - 10:52 pm

  • Suzie G - October 29, 2008 - 11:35 pm

    My favorite gift idea for family is photo calendars ordered from Shutterfly. Then every month they can display a new photo of the family on the calendar. It’s useful too.W e can insert everyone’s birthdays in it too.

  • Marilyn - A Mixed Bouquet - October 30, 2008 - 1:14 am

    Very cool idea! My neck strap is killing me.
    I bought my granddaughter a sterling silver disk necklace with her name on it and a birthstone dangle. So pretty!

  • Heather A - October 30, 2008 - 6:44 am

  • Kristen - October 30, 2008 - 9:35 am

    One year, I made my grandmother a personalized quote calendar. (It was a bit of a paper waster, I admit I am guilty of that.) But I had printed a quote per day onto half sheets of decorative paper, put them all in a binder, and covered the binder with fabric and lace. I am usually not a creative person, so I was really excited about this one. I would recommend maybe doing a monthly version and not use quite so much paper.

  • debbi - October 30, 2008 - 10:17 am

    way cool. i like giving handmade gift.
    thanks for the giveaway.

  • Lindsey@A Kindred Spirit's Thoughts - October 30, 2008 - 11:50 am
