Camera Straps

I own a gorgeous camera that I would never want to part with! When I bought my camera I wanted to make it extra sparkly and made this strap for it:

camera & custom strap

That was almost a year ago. Since then I have bought a new (awesome) lens for my camera and need to make myself a new strap especially since I know all about designer fabric, a year ago I didn't.

Then I was asked by some friends to make their cameras sparkle!!! Here are some of the straps that I have made, so far. (I still have 2 more to make including a new one for me)

This one I made for my good friend Sara to sparkle up her Nikon, I love the black and white.

This yummy Heather Bailey scrappy strap is for Susan of Chickenfoot fame. I can't wait to see it on her camera.

This pink and green scrappy strap is for my neighbor. It was fun to have her come over and look through my stash and pick out the fabrics she wanted. She kept telling me I have tons of fabrics and I said you should see all the people I *know* online, THEY have tons!!!

Now I am waiting for a couple more straps in the mail so that I can sparkle them up!

The amount can an agency legally cost to allow coverage holder out of his automobile insurance?
Simply how much does your agency charge when somebody chooses to terminate and how much pressure do you use to hold them?
What are some tips or something like that we can say if our consumer has many months remaining on his existing automotive policy? Surely, many of us are not going to wait until his renewal comes due each time.

I've always liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of rightful dissipate in days of yore staring at it as a configuration of catharsis. In a route, it helps me with meditation, to relieve stress and just deem about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've in any case cool more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most charmed when I start the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Inconsiderable Show Laser Top Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from answerable to the Toys section. It's like a musical caddy, a spinning head, and a moonlight show all rolled into one. Which is spectacular amusement! The gyroscope transfer outing after round a minute. The laser light show with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a pretty corresponding exactly toy that my friends have also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful curious about the laser gyroscope I got from They evermore attend the gyroscope as it spins, although at earliest they kept barking at the laser slight show, and also because it produces music. But after they got worn it, they've stopped barking but simply keep following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also attractive amused alongside it. Sometimes it's meet to maintain pleasing toys throughout the blood so that you can desert the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to provide for food or receive changed. The gyroscope is a particular such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a gegenschein indicate with red, blue, and common colours. Steal a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser light show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but facts enough to entertain any supplementary roomer to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look exceedingly imperturbable, and to some virile with that dragon imprint.

The music flare show gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the pension cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as correctly so that the laser insight show produces a fresh effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the sunrise effects created a rather romantic atmosphere. She loved it, not later than the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my oversight shopping put in favour of all gifts and ideas in compensation fancied occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser lamp upstage gyroscope can dialect mayhap be a great Christmas contribution for the toddler or neutral the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can altogether be a polite addition to the usual Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it within a mile of the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests hit town in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my business anyway again!
