It's about time...


for a killer giveaway!

I'm a big fan of the camera straps *made with love* by the fabulous Shealynn & sold at the *Shey*[B] etsy shop. They make me happy because
a. they come in a bunch of different stylish patterns
b. they slide on and off so it's easy to interchange them
c. they are super cozy around your neck :)

Right now my Canon is hanging from the black and white damask pattern with a pink yo yo flower! Oh, I almost forgot to mention how much I love the yo yo flowers, she layers them and attaches them to your strap with a button. I couldn't help but get a few more of those that I will easily find a home for on one of my next projects. Her 'Summer Fun' strap was also calling my name since I am eagerly waiting for some sunshine.


Leave a comment with one of your New Years Resolutions (it's okay if you've already given up on them:) & you can choose your favorite camera strap from the Shey B etsy shop!!

My goal this year is to use my to do list more. I have a great one hanging on the fridge, but it usually stays empty. So this year I want to use it and have the satisfaction of crossing off finished things. Those straps look so cool! Becca :)

Jamie D. said...

This is the perfect giveaway for me because my new year's resolution this year is to learn more about my camera and how to take better photos! Hope I win!!!

New Year's resolution - to appreciate the moment more, slow down and breathe.

Kevin, Amber & Jake said...

Kevin, Amber & Jake said...

guess i wasnt first after all! haha

MandieGirl said...

My goal is to lose about 35-40% of my body weight and to take better care of myself- physically, mentally, and spiritually. I've already lost just about 1.02%, so I have a ways, to go, but am confident that I will do it this year!

leana said...

What pretty camera straps!

I made a resolution to get the house organized before our 3rd baby arrives in May! I'm still going strong but it's a lot of work!

sara said...

Those camera straps are soooo cute! I hope I win! OK- this sounds cheesy, but one of mine is to take up scrapbooking or mini-album making or something like that thanks to all the cute creative scrap blogs out there (like yours!) thanks so much!!!

Cass said...

oh la la ... great giveaway liz!!
um .... new years resolutions? ... using what we have before buying more ... from hand/body lotions, baking supplies (chocolate and almond paste and too many kinds of flours!), scrapbooking supplies, and books and DVDs ... I'm enjoying it so far. Makes me feels very satisfied - and thrifty!

Kami said...

My goal is to spend more fun time with my kids instead of worrying about the house. Here's to playing Candyland more!!

elizabeth rosemond said...

Oh, this baby weight HAS to come off! UGH...hoping to make some headway on that this year.
LOVING these camera straps :)

Jennifer Stanley said...

I decided my New Year's Resolutions wouldn't involve the typical lose weight, stop doing something I love type resolutions. I decided to BE HAPPY. I grew up in a very pessimistic family and unfortunately I also tend to be that way out of habit. It's a hard habit to break when every member of my family sees the worst in EVERYTHING. Anyway, my NYR is to find something positive about every bad thing that happens, really relish the good things that happen, and try to enjoy the everyday instead of getting caught up in the mundane household tasks. Life it too short and my three boys are growing like weeds. So for instance, even if I don't win the camera strap, at least maybe I got someone to get off their computer to go hug their baby and say "I Love You!" That's where I'm heading now! :)

Cindy said...

My goal this year is to say "Sorry, can't do it!" a little more often! The camera strap covers are a great idea...I love the black & white damask and also the black & white dot with the pink mink!

Angie and Jim said...

My resolution is to cultivate my relationships, faith, career, and hobbies by reading, studying and learning more.

Kim said...

My new years resolution is to have patience. I am not very good at this at all. I resolve patience this year in alot of areas of my life, for instance: having more patience with the kids (5 year olds are hard!), having patience that God will take care of us, having patience that things that are happening right now in our life and in the world will work out themselves out, having patience that this years blessings will show themselves. I definately resolve to have Patience this year!

Katy and Landon said...

Well, I never make resolutions for some reason, but this time of year I always get an itching to go around my house with garbage bags to do a little simplifying...I either find things to throw away or give away - makes me so happy and organized!!

Meg said...

Love the camera straps- the houndstooth print is so classy!

My goal this year is to be happy and content with my life- to enjoy how things are NOW instead of always wishing it was the future.

Anonymous said...

1) Excersise MORE
2) Be Patient
3) Finish what i start.

AuBien said...

Oooooooooooh. very cute straps! One of my goals is to get more rest. I stay up too late trying to squeeze in time by myself and then I'm more tired than I want to be to start the day!

Sara said...

My New Years resolution is to dedicate more time for scrapbooking. I am so behind......I also want to learn how to use my fancy camera:)I could really use one of these adorable straps!

Zarah said...

My new year's resolution is to not dwell on things and let them get to me as much. Change them or accept them and MOVE ON. Yes. That's it. I'm also always trying to live healthier but that's not a resolution, just my choice that I am sticking by! :D

Jummy said...

I have a new Canon DSLR so this would be great!

The New Year's resolution that has been on my list for the longest time is to lose weight. I really hope to do it this time!

Deanna said...

These staps rock and mine is in some serious need of sprucing up!

One of my new years resolutions is to do things because I want to and not because I people think I should! It's tough!

Thanks! :)

Zoo2 said...

I didn't officially announce it as my New Year's Resolution but I really want to accomplish a number of unfinished projects on my to do list. Some fun but most not so much. I've just gotta make it happen. Thanks for the chance to win such a great prize.

Val said...

For someone married to a very tech savvy man, I had no clue how to use Photoshop. I refused to ask him because I wanted to learn it on my own. Well, that was my new year's res ...

And I am happy to report I am rockin' PS (a little bit) with the help of some online classes. Go me!

A new camera strap sure would go great with all my new and improved photo images. :)

Val

Holly said...

my resolution is to be more present in the time I have with my family-to cherish these fun days in the coming year with my young chilren and to work on a closer walk with Jesus-read my Bible more! :)

tina said...

Hey just came across your blog and have to say I am a fan. You guys are such a cute family who knows how to have a lot of fun.

My resolution is to enjoy the small simple moments and just love my little girls before they grow-up on me.

shawnna said...

I really want to try to live in the moment more... be PRESENT. I am also focused on getting HEALTHY....especially eating healthy and adding more routine excercise

Melissa W. said...

I made no resolutions this year. But I do intend to do a few things: spend more time with my family, save some money, and eat healthier. :)

Thank you for the giveaway!

jen said...

Those are super cute! My resolution is to make healthier meals for my kids.

graphics_girl said...

OMG! I love those! Beu-tee-ful!
My resolutions are, #1 get into a size 6, make more time for scrapping, spend quiet time with God, and learn how to knit.

Liz said...

One of them was to organize my scrap room and I did it - yay! Now I can feel inspired to create. I'm just so proud of myself that I wanted to share that with everyone, hee hee! What I really wanted to put down was that I want to get out of the Auto mode on my camera and really capture things with my own eyes and how I see them and not the camera.:)

P.S. The black & white damask that you have is cool, but it looks like they're out. Summer Fun is pretty funky, too!

Debbie R said...

My goal for 2009 is to nurture the family rlationship more than ever! We want to spend more quality fun time together, crafting, reading, learning, sleeping ,playing and loving one another. WE also want to include community service and instilling that sense of responsibility in ourselves as well as our son.

Heather said...

My major new years resolution was to enjoy living in the moment. And taking lots of pictures doing it. :) I love the jewel dot strap.

Brooke said...

Very cute! One of mine is to actually read my camera manual and use manual mode a little more often.

tchrtiff said...

Oh so cute straps! One of my resolutions is to complete Project 365 but considering I didn't get a kit this may be tough. I'm thinking about learning Photoshop so I can do the project digitally. A new bright fun camera strap would sure help keep me motivated! ;-) Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Raven said...

Those are the cutest ones I've seen! Love the yoyos. My resolution was to take more photos, and so far I've been doing it - at least one a day!

Cami said...

New years resolution is to finish more projects- so far I have finished two of my uncompleted projects from last year, and I'm working on my third.

canadacole said...

What a sweet giveaway! Perfect for driving away those January blahs. One of my goals is to do Project 365 and improve my overall photography skills. I know I'd be picking up the camera more with a cute strap like that!

Holly said...

My resolution is to live a more creative life, in all respects. I Love the Summer fun camera strap it is really calling to me!

Logan and Rebecca said...

My resolution is to get things done instead of just thinking about them. I would love to win the red and white damask strap!

Crystal & Patrick said...

My resolution this year is to write down memorable stories that happen between my son and I, so that he can look back on them and laugh!
I absolutely LOVE the Summer Fun camera strap cover!!!!

Callie said...

My New Years Resolution is to slow down. I'm going through all I have to do or feel I have to do and am trying to cut out the unimportant activities from my schedule. I want to slow down and enjoy the important moments of life and not be consumed by the unimportant things I feel I have to do.

Jane said...

My Nikon is yearning for one of those GORGEOUS straps!!! How cute are they????? My NIkon strap is sooo rough on my neck! My resolution was to stop taking on everyones problems. I have this need to solve everyones problems and I find I end up feeling bogged down and low and have no strength left for my own family and five beautiful children. This year I need to learn to switch off a little. I will of course ALWAYS be there for my friends but I do NEED to learn when to switch off. I can't solve everything.

Sara Ancich said...

My resolution is to wrap my head around Adobe Photoshop, and start "gussying" up my pictures. I just got the program...now I am looking for a class...any ideas?

Deanna M. said...

One of my "goals" for 2009 is to always remember God has a plan. I am having trouble getting pregnant and I need to just relax and know that my hope and faith will help me preserver during times of struggle.

saner4 said...

My resolutions are to be diligent and to be braver; more confident, put myself out there...no fear (or less :)

Those straps are gorgeous!

sarajane said...

My goal for this year is to give more. Of myself, of my time, of my resources. I think I'll have more at the end of the year by doing this.

Sara

Lexi said...

So many resolutions, so few days... :) My MAIN resolution is to ORGANIZE!!! Everything! So far, well, let's just say I am working on it ;) LOVE THOSE CAMERA STRAPS!!!

shara said...

I try to make resolutions that I can actually accomplish, but my biggest one this year is to journal more on my layouts. I always have a sentence or two, but I want to tell more of the story and not just the highlights. So far so good.

andrea f. said...

Oh what a fun giveaway!! Love those straps!

I am actually doing pretty good with my "resolutions" or "goals" as I like to call them! I am determined to make them last! One of them being to read through my Bible this year! I have learned so much already.

Thanks for a chance to win such a fun treat!

Jen said...

I didn't really make any specific resolutions but I am working on being true to my one word - Live!

*JEM* said...

Soooo many gorgeous camera straps, love her site/shop, thanks for passing it along.

My resolution (or rather, focus) for the year is to live healthier. More exercise. Better eating. Greener living. AND, guess what? So far, so good!

~Vittory~ said...

Wow it's gorgeous! I can easily understood you and why you love it!!!
Well my goal for this year is to defend my PhD's thesis (otherwise my boss will kill me ...lol...) and at the same time spending time with my family and trying to find time to scrap (gush why we have just 24H in day...=))))
With best wishes,
Viktoria

Stacy Milford said...

So my resolution is to SIMPLIFY...not sure how that's working out so far...but I'm trying! These camera straps are so cool! Thanks for sharing!

Alyssa said...

What an awesome giveaway! One of my resolutions for 2009 is to get our office/scrapbooking room organized once and for all! I'm still in the decluterring phase, but I want to get it organized before spring!

Nikki said...

Take another photography class this year to learn how to use my manual setting for my Canon. Love the straps!!!

Jules D said...

My plan is to concentrate more on the big picture and not to get so caught up in the small details that really don't matter.

Anonymous said...

I'm really not into new year's resolutions. For once, who really follows thru with them til the end? There are so many life changing events in our times now that impact peoples lifes in all aspects. I have certain standards that I live by and year in and out I try my best to live by these standards. My girls always come first and no matter what I try to spent as much time as possible with them, especially as a full time working mother, always having guilt feelings not to be there for them, where other moms can. I always try to see the best in people and treat them as I would wanna be treated. And as serious as life can get, I always try to take it easy. Life's too short to walk around worrying off our heads. Focus what's in front of us. I love food to much to ever make a resoltion on dieting or the like. Life healthy and have fun, enjoying the little things in life; 'cause they're what really counts.

Mike and Brianna said...

I have had my eye on these! My resolution is to learn more about my SLR and take better photos and to learn digital scrapbooking!

Trishamaus2005 said...

What a fun giveaway, thanks for doing this :) My new years resolution seems to always be the same, try to eat healthier and exercise more, but this year I seem to be right on track :) Usually I can't stick to it for long, but this year it might just work out :)

Anne-Marie said...

New Year's resolution - Get on the treadmill everyday of course! You said it was ok if we'd already given up, right??? lol!!!

Nicole Miner said...

One of my New Years resolutions is to take a picture every day and complete project.

Christine said...

My main resolution for 2009 is to be clutter-free. I've started on this goal, but it seems like I haven't mastered the art of keeping up. I'm so excited about your giveaway! My favorite item in Shey's shop is the Black And White Damask WITH STACKED YOYO... just beautiful!

Hope I win!

Michelle (mla1111) said...

My goals this year are to eat healthier, excercise, create time to create and to save money for my wedding and the happily ever after. Thanks for the chance to win.

Amy said...

So cute! We could use a little sunshine around here in MN!
My NYR is to spend less! We are still "paying off" those high gas prices from last year with my hubby's 122 miles round trip commute... ouch! And believe me, I hear those cute Valentine's embellies from the CK issue calling out my name! LOL!

onetwinsister said...

My resolution this year is to focus on my art room more. I want it to be organized, useable, fun, and all about me. So far, I've framed my fave photos and hung them on the wall, organized my scrap stuff into clear jars and what not. The list is long, but my room is going to be perfect. My fave is the jewel dot.

Hillary said...

I'm in Ali's "one little word" campaign and my word for 2009 is harmony. . .so i'm trying to infuse more harmony in my daily life and that of my family.

hillary

Stay Funny said...

Wow they are amazing! Thanks for the link... if i do not win I will get one for sure! For me it's 2 words that are my moto for the year.... simplify and balance!

East Coast Holman's said...

Expecting baby #4 on Friday. In the rush of life I am trying to enjoy more time with my little ones, they will be gone before I know it!

Laurie said...

My resolution is to take more pictures of my husband and me. I was making some albums as gifts for family for Christmas and I discovered how little we are in pictures since our little boy came along. I think he had thousands of pictures this year (literally) and there were like 2 of us. LOL!

jill marie barrett said...

my resolutions? nope, i don't do them. i have failed too many times. but i love the camera straps!
jill b

s a n s k u :) said...

These are cute. I loved the classic black & white damask. Just plain.

My resolution is to move more and create more. I have been! :) Another is family history. Yet to get on with that one. I've done a bit but so much more to be done. It's fun work. I just need someone to lead my way in the beginning.

kari said...

mine is to try to manage our money better, i'm awful about but have to try as we need to manage our money better. Wish me luck. I love those camera straps, and getting one for free instead of buying on would be on my budget, I think. Thanks Kari.

Salsa Mama said...

My resolution for the year is to read the scriptures every single day, even if it's only a verse or two. That's my one and only resolution, so I'm giving it all I've got! :)

Amanda said...

Slow down and enjoy the little things.

~*~fingers crossed to win, my D80 would look lovely with one of those straps~*~

Brooke said...

One of my resolutions is to get better at managing my finances. I'm not really sure where I'm going to start, but I need to!

Heather Leigh said...

My only official resolution this year is to scrapbook more often, with my first project being a birthday album for each of my 3 kids (ages 13, 7, & almost 5). Those straps would sure brighten my dreary Michigan winter!

Newport01 said...

love the strap! thanks for the chance to win. my resolution for the year is to exercise! honestly its a slow start so far.

kelly

Jodi said...

Those are beautiful. I didn't really make any new years resolutions this year...but this year started off with lots of changes and fresh new beginnings.

Jennifer (consumed) said...

OOOHHHH-Elizabeth-I would LOVE to have a beautiful strap to hang my Cannon Rebel XTI from my neck. You are so incredibly talented and I love the bright and cheery nature of your blog and all of your scrappy goodness! My New Year's Resolution is to complete a novel that I have had on my mind for several years... so far 4 chapters down... many more to go... My word for this year is NOW as in (write Now, 2009) Have a great week and thanks for the smile you give me when I read your blog!

mj said...

I heart those too! I totally had my eye on them this Christmas. My dad got me a camera strap from another shop (he won't tell me...I see an obsession forming...) and I totally love it. Helps me feel more girly that I can accessorize my camera!

New Years Resolution (that I haven't give up on yet) Learn Photo Shop Elements. Today, I resized a photo, rotated it and cropped it! I am on my way!

heidi said...

How cute!! To take the mundane things and make them look stunning and fun. My new years resolution is to breathe--just breathe, enjoy the moments that make up this year.

Megan said...

Ahhh! I love them. No more camera strap burn on my neck!

My resolution is to start an etsy shop! I'm busily crafting away, so it won't be long before I open one!

Spencer Family said...

This is perfect! I seriously hope I win! I got a new camera for christmas and my new years goal is to learn to use it. Like really learn to use it--manual mode and all. A new camera strap would be perfect!

Laura said...

My resolution this year is simple...actually complete a scrapbook, or even better, just 1 page with all of the supplies and equipment I have collected over many years. I tend to collect the supplies and then never produce one single page so my goal is to stop making excuses and "Just Do It".

dedesmith32 said...

My goal is to find BALANCE in my life. I always have so many projects, and I'm a stay-at-home wife and mom to 2 kids. There's always so much to do and I feel like I am always running around like a crazy woman. I would love to get everything organized, prioritized and balanced so that I accomplish more and am really with my family more.

Tina said...

Hi Elizabeth

I enjoy visiting your blog - your scrapbook pages are stupendous. One of many new years resloutions is to lose weight - another is to be a calmer mommy - neither of which is really taking effect. But I am trying.

keeping my fingers crossed...

Whitney said...

My New Year's Resolution is to just enjoy the moments of my life. I keep getting caught up in the idea that life will get better when ____ happens. So this year I'm going to enjoy being a married college student and all that goes with it!

hollie marie said...

This is gross... I resolved to be more diligent with my skin care routine. No more going to bed with makeup on my face! :) Hollie

Naomi said...

one of biggest resolution is to lose weight (who's isn't, right?)

we are going on a mexican rivera cruise in oct so I HAVE to look weight to be IN the pictures!!

Alyson P. said...

I resolve to COMPLETE tasks and not leave things unfinished. I'm such a procrastinator! Complete is my word of the year inspired by Ali Edwards.

mandy said...

I am focusing on quality this year instead of quantity. Those straps are so cute!

junebug said...

Cute strap. And cute top too! I have a weakness for eggplant.

So for this year, I decided I would adopt habits instead of resolutions. The word resolutions just sounds so absolute, like it's all or nothing. So I am going with new habits instead. I now try to stick to an earlier bedtime and get exercise three times a week. And the habits seem to stick.

I've also have a new mantra of Love. Love the good, the bad, the easy, and the hard. The year is going good so far.

Jamie said...

Awesome! One of my goals for this year was to get back to making cards for my loves and writing handwritten notes again. And I got one done last night that included embroidery on it! (on my flickr!) Yay!

odomfamily said...

I love the idea of a decorative camera strap, especially since I take mine everywhere. My resolutions this year all have to do with catching up on scrapbooks...baby albums, family albums, etc. I've moved three times in the past two years and my stuff has spent most of the time boxed up. So far, I've been scrapbooking everyday of the year and loving it again. Thanks!

Kyra said...

Love the strap!
1. Take better care of myself.
2. Save double the amount of my bank accout savings for the year of 08.
3.complete nephew's scrapbook.

Jim & Erin Joseph said...

My resolution (okay, one of many) is to just be a happier person and not sweat the small stuff. I have always envied people that are just genuinely happy all the time, people that just roll with the punches, so that is my goal. I think I am doing better! Thanks for the cool giveaway! I could really use this!

eponinekc said...

I love the camera straps, wouldn't mind winning one. Along with doing the Project 365, I'm making sure to spend time each day reading my bible and using what I get out of my readings in my everyday life.

Laura Stewart said...

spend less time at work and more time at home

Lisa Lew said...

Run in a 5K. I haven't ran since highschool and I was always the last girl off the track. I'm up to a mile and a half so hopefully I'll make it.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Harley Dee said...

She always makes the cutest stuff!! :) My main resolution this year is to get and STAY organized! I'm working really hard at it, and have made some pretty good progress :)

Brooke said...

Love the bright colored strap! Wow - it makes me happy. Some of my resolutions are - spending time wisely, having more meaningful prayer (aka - not falling asleep while praying or letting my mind wander so much), putting more effort into nururing my marriage and teaching my kids. And of course there's the exercise several times a week.

Stacy said...

Killer giveaway! My biggest New Year's resolution is to slow down and just enjoy my right now. Capture my moments with my family and just love every minute of it!

jcmcmt said...

My one and only resolution this year was to feed my family healthier and to cut back on the eating out. So far so good...

Those camera straps are to die for!!!

aascifres said...

My NYR is to et all my digital pics in order and KEEP them that way! LOL
Great giveaway! Woo-hoo!
Amy S.

Quay,Erica, and Ava said...

First off, I love your blog! My resolution is to keep up with my daughter's scrapbook. I've been slack for a while and we're expecting a boy in March. I'm trying to stay on top of hers so I can start his as soon as he gets here! Thanks for all the great ideas!!

Candy Nana said...

My resolution is to recognize that any time spent with family is a gift. I need to stop thinking about what I "should" be getting done sometimes and just enjoy moments shared with children and grandchildren whenever they drop by! I am so blessed!

Caroline said...

I am loving the fun giveaway!! Such cute straps! Resolutions: resolve to be resolved. I have so many decisions to be made that have sat on the back burner for longer than necessary! + Work on photo skills a.lot. + Try to remember to take joy in the journey.

Andrea said...

My goal is to read the entire Bible this year. So far, I'm keeping up well with my reading plan! Oh - I love the camera straps!

kimberly said...

My new years goal is to have more of our friends and family over to our home for fun and food and lots of laughter (and yes, the kids are always welcome) The floors might be a little messier but I figure that no one that comes over is here for a white glove inspection. So far we've had 3 gatherings in January!

Jaimie Lea said...

Whoa! It’s 12:28 AM and there are already 116 comments! I think there is an hour time dif. but STILL!!
Any who, my goal for this year and ever after is to show more appreciation.
Winning this sweet camera strap would be a great opportunity for me!

smileyfish76 said...

I have 3 resolutions for this year. One to take a pic for Project 365 and on the journal tags, put one thing I am grateful for. The second is to use my stash as much as possible to decrease my clutter in my scraproom. The third is to be healthier and lose 30 lbs. In all 3, each is looking for the better parts of life, health, mind and soul. Those camera straps are fantastic.

Deanna said...

My scrappy new years resolution is to get my pages in albums! my pile is far too tall!

LOVE those camera straps! I'll have to take a peek!

Holly T. said...

scrapbook a lot more...one of my resolutions.

Alison said...

To have friends over more on the weekends...at least once a month! Having a toddler is no reason to be "an island."

ABG

Manga Dork said...

My goal is to be "better" than I was last year in several aspects of my life...christian, wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, niece, sisterinlaw, daughterinlaw, scrapbooker, photographer, etc.

I love the straps! Perfect for my new Nikon I am loving that I got for Christmas!

Ward said...

Oh, I love those straps! I've been wanting to get a fun strap . . . I still just use my boring Canon one. LOL One of my resolutions is to play more . . . more time with my kids, less time cleaning the house! :)

Sabrina Rauch said...

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to record more of our story and get my kds involved in recording it! I want to get it all down on paper, whether it is all in a jounral or in a scrapbook I haven't decided yet but I want to record the story of us; both the good and the bad.

Thanks for the giveaway-those are super cute!

Gregory said...

Those straps are super cool! I need to dress up my Canon strap too. My resolution in my 40th year is to keep a detailed journal of every day. So far so good! I know it will be a cherished piece of me when I am gone. I really cherish all of my Grandma's diaries. They really give a glimpse of what her life was like day to day. She kept them from when she was a teenager thru to her late 70's. Incredible!

Sabrina said...

Read Doctrine & Covenants all of it. All ready failing but there still is plenty of time since there is only 100 something chapters.

Jen said...

My New Years Resolution is to keep a clean kitchen...including the dreaded dishes!!! LOL

Beth said...

My goal this year is to respond to my children--not react. The camera straps are beautiful.

Karen Foster said...

A New Years resolution I made was to be a SOY finalist (Ah heck winnera)and I would look so cute when I have to do a cover shoot with a srap like these on my camera.

Nicole said...

Wahoo, I love these straps! You are the queen of introducing your blog readers to cool, affordable new stuff. My New Years rez is to work less. I'm a career woman and a mom (oh and a crafter too). 2008 was a year of working 80-100 hr weeks, it was a blur and family is what is really important to me. I'm doing ok with it so far....

Liz said...

My new years resolution is to take a photo each day for my own year of pictures!!! Thanks for the great idea and for this super contest.

Jingle said...

I would like to at least try to learn to knit. To see if I even like it! That's my goal. Not much, but it's attainable! LOL!

Lacy said...

I have really been wanting one of those!

Resolution - to be more positive! Try not to point out the negative in a situation and think positive!

My New Year's resolution is to backup all my photos to multiple place. Over the holiday I thought that I lost my whole iphoto library and 5 years of pictures of my kids. Backing up pictures is always something that you think you will take the time to do later. This year I am going to be on it!

DeniseHunter said...

I want to take a picture a day in 2009. Two of my children are helping with the project. Oh, of course I want to loose weight.

Emily Simpson said...

My resolution is to remember me! With two small kids and a husband that works about 80 hours a week, it's sometimes hard to remember to take time for myself. I deserve it, and my family deserves the best me possible.

originalblondi said...

This year I want to be 'me' more and not the person others want me to be :) Oh and scrap more and take more photos hehe

Sarah Mullanix said...

So generous...what a great giveaway! Those straps are sooo cute, you could have one for every day of the week! Ok, for my resolution, I usually don't make any but this year I am doing the picture a day thing since I just had my third baby a few months ago. I thought this would be a great way to watch our family grow!
So far, I've stuck to it and I'm determined to continue because the end result is going to be PRICELESS!!

Joe and Kelsey said...

I'm making monthly goals and for January my main goal is to pray morning and night, everyday. My 'thought' is to take baby steps to become the person I want to be. Come Feb, I'll reevaluate.

Kim said...

How appropriate. My goal this year is to complete "Understanding Exposure" and work towards my dream of becoming a glamour photographer.

Lara said...

Trying this year to focus more on what I am getting done vs. what I am not getting done. With 3 small girls, the second list is pretty long!

pieces of us said...

my resolution is to relax my forehead! I know that is so funny, but I always hold my eyebrows up when I'm paying attention to something and I get these big wrinkles. Well whatever, I'm trying to do that less.

Valerie said...

Love the straps. New Year's resolution - what New Year's resolution??? It's not that I'm perfect - but where to start? It would overwhelm me!
However I am trying to NOT procrasinate and to be more aware of all that I have to be thankful for. Thanks for the giveaway. x

Wendee said...

My goal this year is to seize the day. Every day! From spending more time playing with my kids to taking advantage of a gorgeous sunny day and going for a walk, I want to get more out of each day.

Charin said...

I've been wanting to get a camera strap cover!! :) :) (Hopefully I'll be the lucky one) :)

Katrina Southern California said...

Promised myself I would faithfully keep up with Project 365. So far so good, I have not missed a day and my book is current. Lets see how it goes. I think they say it takes you twenty-one days to make something a habit. Thank you for sharing and the wonderful give away.

Anonymous said...

My goal for this year is to stick to my project 365 for the entire year and don't give up!! Even if I might miss a few days here and there...

Valarie Lea said...

Weel I decided not to make any resolutions this year. I did however decide to start lifing healthier again. I fell off the wagon for about 6 months. I have lost 6 pds so far Woo HOo!!

Tales of an Alaskan Housewife said...

To take better care of myself and to be super positive. Neither are hard to do but I just have to remind myself sometimes. A great attitude spreads like wildfire...and that's a great thing!

Samantha said...

My resolution is to eat better!

Jennifer said...

I have 2 New Years Resolutions, the first is the typical one, loose weight. The other is to scrapbook at least once a month. Sometimes we just get so busy with household chores, work and every day things that we forget to take time for ourselves.

Evelyn said...

My resolution is to be more organized in teaching my toddler -- like a teacher, with a lesson plan, etc. Otherwise I know I won't do as much as I should! Thanks for the giveaway!

Amy E. said...

My new's year resolution is to have more fun with my family...relax and enjoy a little bit (or a lot!) of everyday!! The camera straps are very cool.....Thanks! Amy in Johnstown, PA

Dawn McVey (dawnsing) said...

Such cute straps, Elizabeth!! I don't really make resolutions. Maybe it's cause I know what the liklihood would be of me actually keeping them! Ha!

Have a goodie!

Hámos Beáta (betsie) said...

Oh, wow, those straps are awesome! All of them in the shop! :D My Nikon would be too keen to have one! :D
So my new year's resolution is to kick my butt and get my driving license - at the age of 31!!! :O Actually that was my resolution for last year too, but it didn't come true. Now I've found out that I always thought that I wouldn't be a good enough driver and that's why I never got my license. But now I got over on it and I'm ready for the challenge! :) I already see myself in my new car! YAY!

Courtney ;-) said...

Oh, I just LOVE those straps! My Canon needs one NOW! :)

My New Years resolution is to become a runner ... it's a stretch goal, but I'm working on it!!! :)

Alicia Sharp said...

My resoultion was to quit smoking. I really hope to stop and make myself healthier.

girlymom said...

I LOVE these camera straps!!! I always do the same each year...get in shape but I always fail...this year (although that is on the end of my list)my resolution is to be thankful each day and to live in the moment with my two girls and wonderful hubby. Life gets so chaotic and you never know how much time you have...SO I hope to live each day enjoying every second in my everyday blessings!!!

HL0517 said...

my resolution is gratitude - to be grateful for the many blessings I have been given and focus on appreciating what I already have.

MissD said...

My goal is a picture a day, at least for the month of January!
