bloggy giveaways carnival

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button


It is time for the bloggy giveaways carnival and I am so excited! I have entered several giveaways, and most of them have a coffee theme. I'm all for some free Starbucks!

I am also hosting my own giveaway and have decided to offer a free custom camera strap!

modification to camera straps

Just take a look at my shop and see the straps, and then at my fabric swatches to decide just which fabric you'd like. Then, leave a comment telling me what you would like to win. The contest will be open until Saturday, April 26, 12 midnight EST. I will use the random number generator to choose the winning entry on Sunday, April 27, and notify the winner by email and here at my blog. Your custom camera strap will be on its way to you within a week of the giveaway's closing.

Take a look at the other terrific giveaways, too! You won't be disappointed!

I love the lemon lime floral stripe one. This is such a great giveaway and creative idea! Check out my giveaway as well!

Since my husband would be using it too and he has dull tastes I probably would go with the houndstooth, but I would want the guinea flower. I can't really tell a difference between strap styles.

I'd pick kaffe fassett :: silouhette rose - mint. This is such a cool idea. I have never seen custom camera straps. I LOVE my camera, and I travel a lot, so this would get a lot of use.

Becky said...

This was a HARD choice, but I finally settled on the Lemon Lime Floral Stripe, but I saw that was not one of the fabric swatches. From the fabric swatches, I'd pick beach umbrella. You are very talented!

I just added your blog to my favorites. I was so excited to see all of the tutorials you've got listed. I can't wait to try to make the tote.

Thanks for the fun!

Kathy said...

I'd love to win a camera strap in the green and white scrollwork fabric!

You have one of those fabric stashes that makes me gasp when I first open the page. Actually looking at your store I initially liked the patchworks but when I didn't find them in your stash I quickly picked the black eyed susan fabric - love it! We would love to win this contest - thanks!

Naomi said...

I actually like the vintage flower...

Shama-Lama Mama said...

Oh those are simply AWESOME! I can't even begin to decide... ummmm I think the Terra Cotta is my favorite but if I win, I may have to re-peruse your swatches a few more times. So many good ones!
