You are going to want one too!

So at the not-so-silent auction at the Scrap Etc event a couple weekends ago I was lucky enough to win a camera strap made by the fabulous Nancy Holley.
{check out her Etsy shop with more camera straps here}
She asked what my favorite colors are (to which I responded, "Well I have always loved red but lately I have been digging the greens.") and then proceeded to whip up this beautiful piece.
And then {just to torture me} she also made this fabulous one.
And then she said I had to choose!
{well really she said that I can keep them both if I would like. and I would like that, but I do only have one camera that needs a strap and that would be kind of greedy wouldn't it??}
{as I was typing the above sentence I was speaking it in a British accent because Forgetting Sarah Marshall is on in the background}
{do forgive me. it has been raining here all day & I think I might be going crazy}
Back to the task at hand!
So after several days of careful deliberation, I decided on the red one.
But you are in luck!
I am going to give the green one away to one of you!
Let's say you have until Tuesday night to post a comment and then I will draw a winner on Wednesday.
Thanks for being so generous Nancy!

The straps are super cute and it is very sweet of you to share. Sadly, I would probably never be that sweet. ;P

Too bad I don't have a SLR camera to use with this strap...wait, my sister-in-law and brother each has an SLR and they're always getting them mixed up! The green camera strap would be awesome for my sister-in-law. ;)

Green is my favorite color. My living room, dining room, kitchen and den are all shades of green. My countertops are green. My oldest son has green eyes. Everything on my blog is green. I'm wearing green jewelry in the pictures posted on my blog this week. My Mother's Day gift (also pictured) is green.

But most importantly, the new outfit I bought to wear to my son's graduation is green (I promise). I NEED this camera strap to match my new green outfit I'm wearing to the graduation... so I'll look really, really good.

I'm green with envy! I would love to have this adorable green camera strap made by the adorable Nancy! She is a rock star and so are you!

Please pick me...sad puppy dog eyes looking up at you since I don't have on heels right now!

Kim said...

That green one is oh so cute. It would look great on my new camera. Sadly in my case there would be a shipping cost.

Brianna said...

Beautiful! Love that color and with green my husband wouldn't be opposed to using it every now and then!

susanv said...

Sara said...

I have been looking at these camera straps, but couldn't decide on a fabric pattern! I would love one for my new Rebel!

Susie Q said...

Ooh Ooh Ooh Green is my FAVORITE color!!!!!

Seriously, both of those are adorable....what a tough decision!!!

Thanks for being so generous and sharing with your friends :)

Rachel said...

well, the green one is tdf! Too bad for us that you don't like it and just have to give it away... ;)

mary h. said...

Woohoo! I was going to make one, but you and Nancy could seriously save me the trouble. Plus, with the green my husband wouldn't try to take it off when he wanted to use it.

Sandy Enloe said...

I would love the green camera strap. These look great and I have always wanted one as well.

Fabiana said...

Red is my favorite color too, but I wouldn't mind the green strap AT ALL!!!

Jessica Turner said...

okay, I really, really, really, really, really want this. I have been lusting over pretty camera straps for months, but haven't had the budget to buy something "unnecessary." Please, please may it be my lucky day!

Carolyn Bertram said...

Oh, Lucy took my line. I'm green with envy too! I bet my pictures would even turn out better with a pretty green strap cover... :)

Well, my favorite color is green so it would work out perfectly for me. =)

She has some VERY cute straps in her shop!

Nancy Holley said...

You guys are all too fun!! I so thought you would pick the green one Gretchen -- isn't that funny -- well now I AM glad I sent two and that you could love on these girls a little!!

Tracy said...

man...you are awesome to giveaway the second camera strap! I wonder if my fiance would like a green camera strap. Maybe if I convinced him it would help him stay camouflaged when he's taking his nature pictures...hmmmm. :D

amy said...

those are both FAB!!! thanks for the catwalk, btw :)

Melissa said...

Very cute strap!

Thanks for sharing!

BarefootTams said...

Love the straps!

Christie M said...

I'm really digging the green and how cute is Nancy? She was cracking me up at the event with our "musical chairs" game. I'd so love to win that camera strap! :)

Nat said...

ooohhh...

I actually made myself one that is a pink paisley - b/c i had that fabric already. However, mine looks handmade - so a nice professional one would be very nice. :)

Holly said...

My favorite color is green!! Thanks for the chance to win something beautiful and useful.

ebworley said...

By your subject line I can tell you REALLY know me!!! Well, YOU may not, but Nancy sure does! She's one of my dear sweet friends and talk about talent! Look up talent in the dictionary and you'll find her picture!!!

So, with Nancy and I living in the same Hometown, I know I could buy one (with NO shipping), but it would be SO much more fun to win one.

PLUS, I JUST got my first "Big Girl" camera a few months ago, so I really NEEEED this strap!

Pick me,

Ellen
