Fantastic Finds (Vol. 1)

Welcome to the first edition of Fantastic Finds-- highlighting talented ladies who sell their own homemade goods!

Today I'd like to introduce you to Robin! Robin is a mommy to a six year old girl-- her daughter has given her much sewing practice by having mommy make things for her dollies! Robin loves to sew, garden, and go 4-wheeling! (Whew-- what an adventurous lady!)

I got a DSLR camera for Christmas, and have been ogling over the DSLR camera straps I've seen on etsy (basically it's a "sock" that fits over your Nikon or Canon camera strap, and makes your camera look so much more fun!) The problem? Most sellers on etsy have those things listed for $16-$25! Wowsers!

Robin has a great selection of camera strap covers for $9! Her camera strap covers are very well made and her fabrics are absolutely adorable!
Isn't it cute on me?

My husband says it makes the camera look too girlie and I say GOOD!
The best part is that if you can't make up your mind about which strap cover to buy, you could get two, or three and change them up because they're so affordable!

Robin is also starting to sell "cozies" for cell phones, ipods, and mp3 players-- cute!

Robin was kind enough to send me a camera strap for ONE OF YOU!
Isn't it adorable? It's double sided-- pink with medium sized white polka dots and bright green with neon flowers! Who wouldn't look cute with that on their camera around their neck?! (OK, my Hubby probably would argue that he wouldn't look too cute with it on...)

To win: Click on over to Robin's store on etsy and look at her camera strap covers. Come back here and tell me what you saw... that's it folks. I will draw a lucky (random) winner next Thursday March 12th, and this will be yours:
May the best photographer win!

And the winner is... Terra!

I love the colorful paisley and striped one in the top row. But the others are all so lovely! I wish I could sew like that!
