Today, July 21st, we are Giving Away... (PRIZES CLAIMED)


Two Lovely Camera Strap Covers with One Add-on Feature from Designs by Jessie

Before I became a mom I was not very good about taking pictures. Like the time I backpacked across Europe with three friends. I thought, “Okay, we will be gone for six weeks visiting ten different European countries, I will splurge and take four rolls of film." It was pre-digital camera days, mind you, and you had to be careful back then about wasting film. When I arrived at the airport with my four rolls of film, my friend Emily informed me that she had brought 17 rolls!! I thought she was a little crazy and she thought the same of me. In the end, I used all four rolls of my film, she used all 17 rolls of her film. To each her own, I say.

The point of this story? Some of us take a lot of pictures, some of us not so many. But it doesn't matter if you a professional photographer, a casual picture taker, or the Paparazzi, you are going to want to win (or buy) yourself a camera strap from Designs by Jessie. Why?

Because they're darling:

They're durable:

They're removable and washable:

They make people happy when they see you wearing one (that means more people will be smiling in your photos):

They make picture taking and camera carrying more comfortable--they are lined with fleece interfacing or you can add-on minky (a material which I believe is heaven-sent):

And finally, they're affordable:
That's right, Designs by Jessie is offering a 20% DISCOUNT to YOU. Use the code "GAT20" upon check-out.

Today Designs by Jessie is giving away two camera straps designed to fit over your SLR or DSLR camera strap. It is 21 inches long and 2 3/4" wide. They will fit most standard camera straps. The two winners will also receive one add-on. What is an add-on, you ask? Let me show you:

You can enter to win a camera strap from Designs by Jessie up to THREE times today. We know that everyone everywhere loves to take pictures. Therefore, this giveaway is open worldwide.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry, please visit Designs by Jessie here. Look at all of their darling camera straps then return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and which one matches your personal style (or the style of the friend you would love to give one to.)
Example: Jane Doe: I love the white polka dot one because it's fun and I want to make people smile.

For a third enrty, in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and something you did when you were younger that you wouldn't do now.
Example: Jane Doe: Backpack through Europe. I would love to travel through Europe, but living out of bag and in youth hostels with four kiddies just wouldn't work nowadays. When I was nineteen, amazing! Now, too much work (and a little scary after seeing the movie Taken)

The winners of the camera straps from Designs by Jessie will be announced Wednesday, July 22nd. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaways for the day. Thanks and have a great day!

Hilary Johnson Oh my I was so brave when I was little! (Like really little) I always ran outside after rain storms and picked up ALL the worms and put them in the dirt to "save" them. Now I can't even LOOK at them!

Yuri Kristianti : Raving party. Felt cool and flirty at that time but now after I got married there's no way my "non-party-dude" husband would let me go to rave parties and flirt like crazy.

kjw said...

Style No 200: Nice and retro. Touches on my love of travel and postcards, plus it reminds me of those icky old travel shirts my father used to wear.

Shell Cyr: #145 It doesn't give a name for the fabric, but it is girly. I don't have a camera, but I'd love to win one of these for my DIL...she's quite the shutter bug and VERY good at it! She would love that feminine touch!

free indeed said...

Shell Cyr: As a kid, I played in storm drains; those tunnels that go under the road. These were NOT the stand up size most of you have seen; these were child size, maybe 2 feet in diameter? We'd crawl from one end to the other...it was a tight fit too. Can you image getting stuck in there?? How would they ever get you out? they 'd have to dig up the road! Boy was I stupid!

Sheri said...

Sheri Kimlinger: I always worried too much about what people thought of me, and was really shy...if I could go back I'd change that and actually make friends with people that I wish I had known better back then. Anyway, I've learned from that and now I try really hard to step out of my comfort zone to meet and get to know people. I don't want to miss out!
