Well, I did it, I completed the NaBloPoMo challenge. I posted every.single.day.this month. I am very proud of myself, even if all of my posts weren’t what I would call ‘well thought out’ or even ‘prepared’…. I guess you can say for the most part I was flying by the seat of my pants. Many a day I found myself by evening time scrambling to get something up JUST so I could make sure I reach this goal. Well, I did it, and I don’t think I will do it again! I really enjoy blogging. I love to share the thing things happening in my life – my crafty idea’s, my parenting challenges, great products and my weight loss journey. I found that the need to blog everyday though took away some of that enjoyment. It started to feel like a chore, and if you know me, you know I don’t like chores.
What better way than reaching this goal than a giveaway? Recently I bought myself a new camera, my Canon t3i. Now before your heart starts fluttering, no, I am not giving away a Canon t3i. When I got my camera, I thought it was finally time to order a beautiful handmade camera strap that I had been eyeing on etsy. I now have the exact same camera as my dad, and hey, I don’t want them to get mixed up right? Of course I need something to set it apart! (I find ways to justify some purchases anyway I can). Myself and Tamara of Tea for Three ordered together and got two of our favourite prints. I was so excited to tear open the package when it arrived in the mail, my new camera was begging for some colour in it’s life – who wants a boring old Canon strap?
This is the beautiful strap I ordered:

These straps are wonderful. I will have to admit that when I started looking for camera straps I was a little worried about their quality – you want your strap to hold your camera securely. These straps are very secure. They are comfortable, and of course, they are PRETTY! One of my other favorite features of the straps we got – The lens pocket! Genius! No more loosing my lens cap (which I have done too many times to count).
