Hello my new love . . .

You will change my life.  You will allow my artsy-fartsy photos to become more artsy (and because I can't quite figure you out yet, the photos are definately more fartsy!).  I've been stalking you for over a year.  Best Buy made me finally purchase you cuz I was always taking up too much of their employees' time asking questions about all the cameras, just to make sure you were the one I wanted needed.

You will allow me to finally capture moments with squirmy grandkids.  No more blurry shots of the constantly moving J-man.  My Lainey-girl's funny faces will be shot  as embarrasing photos  in order to scare off  future boyfriends.  Not to mention the pretty pictures I'll be able to catch.  The zoom photos.  The macro photos.  The wide angle photos.  Oh, the fun we'll have together - you and I!  Welcome, new love, to my life!  Now the rest is up to me!  If you have a DSL, I sure would appreciate any tips!  Especially that apeture thingy! 

And what's a new camera without a pretty camera strap?  I've seen a-plenty on the web at a-plenty high price.  I said to myself, "Self.  You can make one just as pretty."  So I did.  And I can make one for you too if you would like.  Just email me, 'kay?

I'm off to find photo subjects . . .

I love & adore your new LOVE & your straps are really wonderful!!! I just got a new camera too...not quite as wonderful as your, but I too hope to be able to take cooler artsy fartsy pictures. My problem is I can't work with the strap attached...it's ALWAYS in my way. What am I doing wrong? I see all these fabulous photographers with there awesome cameras hanging from their necks & I wanted to play hanging camera too...but it just won't work. Are your straps magic straps that won't get in the way??? I want 1 of those please! lol
PS: I think your a winner somewhere!!! Congrats!

Suz said...

Wow! That's some camera. I am still using a point and shoot so I really admire those of you who are able to use these. Connie, your straps are really great material and beautifully made. I will remember you when I, too, get my big girl camera ;-)

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments!


JoAnne said...

Hi Connie,
Enjoy the new camera, can't wait to see all your new pics! Can I hire you as my blog photograper?(lol-I'm camera challenged) All my visits to your blog and I've never been a follower?!?! Corrected that oversight today. Thanks for grabbing the giveaway button-love the subtitle!

JoAnne said...

PS- Congrats on your A Little Bit French win! I love French Friday too.

Diane said...

I adore Susie's and I would love one...how about the colors of the one you have in the picture with your camera??? Even though acid green is one of a FAVORITE colors =)

Jill said...

My advice..just shoot and shoot and shoot. AND, read the manual. I know people hate to but it has the info. you need.
