those crazy interwebz...

make me realize that the world is actually really, really small.

I had been following Shey's blog for a long time.
Even hosted a giveaway for her last fall.
Love the strap cover that she made.
Was excited to see all four photographers from
our day with Drew B. were wearing her straps too.

But who would know that one night over Twitter we would 
figure out that we actually know each other.
That we once lived in the same town.
That we went to church together.
We share bunches of the same friends.

That our shared passion for fabric and crazy late night sewing

would connect us states apart.
Our daughters even share the same birthday.

So today I am honored to host a giveaway for her and
her gorgeous and useful camera strap slip covers.

If you have a camera, or know anyone who does,
you need one of these.
I speak from experience.  No more pleather scratching your neck.

Now you can get the perfect shot in style.

Here are the ways you can win.
(Remember leave a new comment for each entry.)

1.  Visit Shey's shop.  Come back here and tell me your favorite item.
2.  Visit her blog.  Leave some comment love.
3. Follow her blog.
4.  Blog about the giveaway.
5.  Tweet about it.
6.  Tell your vast network of Facebook friends.
7.  Follow Shey on Twitter. 
(Two options: Here or here.)
8. Add my button to your blog.
(You can find the code on the top left sidebar.)
9.  Follow my blog.
10.  Make my disobedient camera behave.  
It is driving me crazy and I 
don't want to admit that iy is
approaching retirement.
Or feel free to send me a new one.
For ideas check here.

One happy winner will be chosen on 
Thursday, June 11th.

Click. Click.

  8. Cute! My favorite is the French Girlie Wallpaper, but it's not eligible for giveaways. Bummer.

    My second choice would be the Gothic Rose print. I love how you can add a lens pouch!
