Camera Strap & Etsy
I ordered a custom-made neck strap for my camera a couple weeks ago and it arrived!
I ordered it from SewTamz on Etsy
I am so excited to have something so soft and cushy and add some padding around my neck when wearing my big honkin’ camera + lens.
I had SewTamz add a camera lens cap pocket to my strap.
Sometimes I am wearing pants without pockets so just having this pocket always there and built into the strap is great and not having to worry about holding the cap while taking the shot.
The strap also has quick-release buckles to release the strap from the camera body in case I don’t need it.
I admit, the first dslr camera strap I put on, I had to google it to figure out what I was doing!
It’s not as easy as it looks to thread all the strap material, and configure the buckles and “pulleys” properly, and feed it over one part, under another, and get it all “assembled”. If you have ever put a dslr camera strap on, you know what I’m talking about!
My new strap has a damask print outside with an uber soft Tiffany-blue minky on the underside
The last time I bought anything minky, it happened to be from an Etsy seller, and it was minky-lined cloth diapers for this little girl’s bum, years ago.
Ironically, Skylar’s bedroom set has an almost identical color pattern and theme to my neckstrap
And my blog header is also Tiffany blue + white + black
At least I’m consistent!
I love my new super soft strap. It makes carrying around The Beast a little bit easier.
I took all of the above photos of me with my iMac built-in camera + Photo Booth that I discovered and mentioned two days ago. Still loving that discovery!
I also love Etsy.
It’s where I got my custom made camera bag, too.
From my last post, Going Back For It, it seems we all have those items we wished we had bought at the time, but for whatever reason, we didn’t. Sometimes we can go back for it and the item is still there, but sometimes, it’s not. Sorry so many of you have those kick-yourself items that you wish you had bought. We all have them, though.
Interesting to hear how many of you talk yourself out of purchases, too.
1. Do you have a favorite color palette or color/patterns/themes that is sort of your ‘signature’ or a look you just gravitate toward?
My mother, not kidding, has a house decorated in shades of pink, dusty rose, lavender, purple, and plum. She just loves pink and purple that much. (I love it to wear, but not as the basis for my household decor)
For my household colors, I like creams, chocolates, browns, charcoal gray, dark wood, with a splash of accent color. Usually teal or a Tiffany-blue. I am 100% a West Elm girl for my household decor.
My bedroom set, bedding, and desk are all West Elm. That’s just what I see to gravitate toward. But I also love tons of other looks too, so it can be tricky to really define my style. <–But that’s normal, right!
2. Have you ever purchased anything from Etsy?
Blog readers, blog writers, cooks, photographers, yogis, and the like strike me as creative types and I’m pretty sure help to keep many Etsy shops in business. Anything you just adore that’s an Etsy purchase?
I have purchased everything from to camera bags, neck straps, and cool clothing items for myself and home decor things like blankets and throw pillows.
Also cloth baby wipes, cloth diapers, and natural diaper care salves and creams back when Skylar was in diapers
