This week we are hoping to inspire you to take a starring role in your scrapbooks. And while you can scrapbook yourself without photos, we would love for you to turn the camera on yourself as well. So for our
Fortunately, our very own Melissa Kaiserman is as handy with a sewing machine as she is with a trimmer! Melissa creates reversible DSLR camera strap covers with matching rosettes. And she has kindly offered three for our giveaway today.
Each camera strap cover is 22” long, and is guaranteed to make you smile for more than just that self-portrait. And that darling rosette? It is removable so that you may clip it onto your lapel, or a headband for your headshot. Or you may add it to your purse or a hat if you are going for a full body shot!!
Marnie received one of Melissa's camera straps for Christmas and loves how it readily identifies her camera when in a room full of phototaking moms. It also really does make her smile as the happy colors are a reminder that photography is fun. (Though, we apparently need to work on her understanding that it is also supposed to inspire self-portraits as her headshot is very outdated! ahem...)
If you haven't stopped by Melissa's blog, A Time for Everything, lately, please do. Melissa has suggestions for organizing, repurposing, and of course, scrapbooking. And as if that wasn't enough, she sells not only her delightful camera strap covers, but also camera wrist straps, and designer burp cloth sets in her shop. And in March she will be debuting her envelope system wallets made of laminated cotton that are sure to please, so be sure to remember to check back in a couple of weeks!
