Camera Strap Cozy

When I went to the zoo recently with Steve and his parents, I obviously took my new camera to try and snap some cool shots of some animals.テつ But one thing I failed to mention about the trip was that the camera strap that came with the camera was unbearably uncomfortable.テつ I was wearing it in the most obscure ways imaginable when I wasn’t taking photos.テつ So to alleviate some of this discomfort in the future, I decided to make a little removable camera strap cozy!テつ I chose a cute mushroom print fabric and put some cushy type fabric for the outside, and then used a soft fluffy-like fabric underneath it to give it a bit more of a cushy feel.テつ Take a look!テつ It turned out pretty cool :)

I had to bust out my old P&S (point and shoot) camera to snap this pic, but it was worth it :)


One more Crafty Bit…

I had been eying this little dude on this blog site and wanted to make my very own to do with my green and blue bathroom.テつ He is a cute little dude.テつ I used wool felt (which I just recently purchased a huge assortment of colors to make cute little stuffed things with) and I must say, it is really awesome.テつ It is easy to work with and isn’t as frail or fray-like as regular felt.テつ Check this little cute dude out! I took some floral tape and wire and attached it to this little decorative fakey crafty leafy wreathy thingy i found at the craft store :)


Handmade Recycled Bathroom Rug!

I have been feeling a little crafty lately.テつ I was poking around the Internet trying to attain some inspiration on a new project that didn’t involve yarn.テつ Don’t get me wrong I will love crochet and light knitting, but I’ve been tiring of it lately mostly due to all of the projects I’m wanting to try are just too large and I don’t have the patience.テつ So I was looking for something to do that would enable me to break out my sewing machine again.

I found a DIY Bathroom Rug tutorial and thought “Hey, that’s a cute idea…”テつ Currently I have black towels and bathroom mats in the bathroom, and even though they are cushy and what not…I’m starting to get over the whole black thing.テつ I need some color in my life!テつ Also it was a quilting project and I had never tried quilting before.テつ Here is a close up of the rug.

I ended up doubling up two towels for the bottom of my rug.テつ I quickly found out that my sewing machine has some limits in how much fabric I can put under the needle and still have it function somewhat properly.テつ Turns out two towels + some fabric is a bit much, but I managed.テつ I also had a lot of fun coming up with the applique design for the rug as well.テつ I テ「邃「ツ・ trees :)

I loved my new bath rug so much that I even went and got some bright colored towels to match to brighten up the bathroom a bit.テつ I think it looks pretty nice :)テつ I spent a lot of time at a few stores trying to decide if certain stuff would be cute in my bathroom and ended up just saying… “screw this, I bet the internet has WAY cuter stuff that I can make all by myself the way I want it…”テつ Low and behold, I found such a cute little tutorial :)テつ I hope one day I come up with a crafty tutorial to share with the world like this :)テつ Here is a quick pic of the bathroom with the mat in it.


New Camera!

I finally broke down and bought the Digital SLR I have always been wanting!テつ It is a Canon EOS Rebel T1i and it came with a EF-S 18-55mm zoom lens.テつ It is a 15.1 megapixel camera…’ 10.1 more than my little P&S! The technical quality of my future photos will be awesome, now its time to work on the artistic and photographic quality :)テつ Here is a quick pic.

This will be the last photo taken with my little P&S 5.0 Megapixel Olympus D-630
