Me! Me!! Pick me! I'll be back with the rest. :)

Mindy said...

Okay, we think alike, V... my favorites are the turquoise with red polka dots and the classy b&w, but I couldn't help smiling at the owl one... my daughter would love that one!!

Mindy said...

Left a comment for Shey. :)

Mindy said...

Facebooked... and hoping that I'm the only commenter... so far so good. ;) Hahahahhaha.... as if THAT could ever happen!

Mindy said...

Whew! Blogged! It wouldn't let me upload a picture, so I'll put it on tomorrow. The link ishttp://smithfamilyicecreamscoop.blogspot.com/2009/11/another-giveaway-at-vs.html

And that, my dear V, is it... I don't tweet, so I'm done cluttering up your comments. :)

Cathy said...

I have seen straps like this before and have always wanted something fun to wear.. "Baby" {Sony Alpha} would be happy to have some new bling.. I like the black and white classy one but let my jump over and check them all out.

Kimmy Davis said...

I'm new to your site but I'm loving your sense of humor so far!

Kimmy Davis said...

My favorite in her shop right now is the one she is giving away here--the Pom Pom Flourish :)

Cathy said...

Okay first I loved the black and white diamond dot.. but then I saw the blk and wht damask with orange minky (orange to match my Sony).. Oh choices..choices.. I think I would have to go with the diamond dot... Oh, I don't enter too many contests but I really would love to win this one since my camera is part of my outfit when I am out..

Karen said...

Great giveaway! I just have a new camera too.

Kimmy Davis said...

I leave comments on her blog whenever she has a giveaway or when she gets me excited about a new book she's reviewed for Harper Teen. I love YA :)

Karen said...

I had a look and its way too hard to decide. To be fair on the other camera users in my house I probably shouldn't pick anything too girly as much as I would like to. Do you think the aqua and red dot is too girly????/

Karen said...

I left her a comment and to wish her in advance a Happy Australia Day(Jan 26).

Karen said...

Sent out a tweet. Getting better at this tech stuff now.

Karen said...

And facebooked. No bloggong for me tonight gotta read some bedtime stories for my bbbbaby boy.

Marielle said...

Great give away, I realy want to win, because I love to make photo's and hate my camera strap.
Now of to blog about this

Marielle said...

Pick 1??? That is very difficult there are some many beatiful designs.
But I think I would like to have Vibrant Paisley Because I just love lime and pink

Marielle said...

I blogged about your giveaway her http://madesign-quilt.blogspot.com/

Marielle said...

It turned out really great and it was super easy!!

Karly said...

I was looking at Shay [B]'s site the other day and drooling over her camera straps! My stepmom is a photographer and I was thinking that would be a fantastic Christmas present for her! The one I picked out for her is the Cha Cha Carnival with a lens cap hold or the Vibrant Paisley with a lens cap holder.

Karly said...

Ok I went to Shay's blog!

Sims Family said...

Those are so cute!

Karly said...

Aleycia said...

I love the Diamond Dot black and white :)

radhi said...

firstly, i heart your creativity and am thankful you share it with all of us! secondly, i heart the "fall apple trees" camera strap! i think my new lomo camera would look cute hanging off of any of those sweet straps. thanks very much!

Christine said...

I left a comment for Shey and if I could choose any strap I would either choose the Vibrant Paisley or Apple Fall in that order.

Amy said...

Oooh, the pom pom flourish is my favorite!! Yay that it's the one in the giveaway!

tessnco said...

i love the diamond dot strap. it's very "me". the disco dot is a close 2nd, followed by the black and white damask.

Amanda said...

As my random comment, I like damask so much I think I want to purchase mismatched chairs and put black and white damask on the seats. I like how it would look with my bright yellow and white kitchen walls. Hubby not so excited. P.s. I love the pine cone wreath and really want to make one, hubby also not so excited:)

These are on my wish list for Christmas!

The black/white damask with minky back, to be exact. (either hot pink or lime green. Probably green. Not that I'm picky or anything...)

PamperingBeki said...

AND I talked to her on the phone today. For over an hour.

I'm pretty sure that makes me cooler than anyone else on earth right now, so I should win just on the coolness factor.

JessikaLaundry said...

Love them! I can't seem to pick my favorite between the lime green polka dot and the black and white one!

Kari @ Beautiful Inspirations said...

I LOVE this idea! My husband and I are saving up for a brand new Nikon D90 camera, by selling almost everything we own. Having a fancy free camera strap to go with my fancy new camera would just make my day! :)

Ashley said...

New to your blog. Found it blog-hopping and I LOVE you! Not in a creepy way. My camera is too crappy and cheap to need a neck strap, but my sister recently got a camera, and when I saw this I thought of her in a heartbeat. My very favorite is the black and white damask with pink minky accents. Too bad it's not eligible. I hope I win the contest! Thanks for the giveaway, and Thanks Shey B!!! Talented! I'm not good at this blogging stuff, and I'm not sure if you can find me just from this post (in case I win) so here's my email.
wrightmemail@gmail.com

h5rus said...

I soooooo wanna win this strap but my luck is like, well, bad ju-ju or something, so I will very likely be buying a strap for me soon! Thanks for the opportunity to win!! I'll be back with the rest just in case my luck turns around! :)

h5rus said...

Oooh! I just went browsing through the straps and I must say I absolutely LURVE me the Black and White Damask with Lime Minky. I mean, MINKY!? Who'd of thunk it! So soft and nice for the neck.
