Just a few pics...

While you're waiting for me to put together some crafty posts, I thought I'd share a few of my recent photos. :)

Promise: For Real This Time

noun: A declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that guarantees that a particular thing will happen. 
Ok, I know how terrible I've been to this blog. And I know how many times I've said that before. I just wanted to write (AGAIN) and this time say that I'm working on devoting more time to actually posting. Right now I'm working on updating the blog and adding some more pages, then I'll figure things out and plan on posting more often. Part of the reason I was putting off posting was because I didn't think the posts I put together were substantial enough to be my solution was to not post. Which makes no sense at all...haha. So, I'm going to put that aside and just post. I'm not even going to pay attention to how skimpy the posts are. I'm just going to post them. Sometimes there will be some explanation of a project with a few pics. Sometimes I might just post some of my photography. Sometimes I'll post tutorials (I'm working on these right now, but I'm taking a little more time on them, stay tuned. ;). Sometimes I'll even post random updates. Point is, I WILL post. I'm even going to have somebody to make sure I stick to this promise. And now, I'll bow out and work on some pages. :)

Camera Strap Cover

Since even before I got my slr camera, I've been drooling over all the camera strap covers I've seen on Etsy. A couple days ago I told my mom about all the cute covers there were. Her response was, "I bet those are super easy to sew." At that point I figured it would be worthless to keep wishing for one and that I should just make my own. And that's what I did yesterday afternoon. The first one a made turned out too small for my camera's strap, but it fit almost perfectly on the strap of my mom's point-and-shoot. Then I made a second one...but I forgot to sew on the pocket before I sewed the two pieces the pocket looked kind of out of place. So I went back to the fabric scraps and pulled out some cute retro-flower patterned fabric and made another strap. Lo and behold, it turned out perfectly!

Since I still haven't given all you lovely followers a tutorial, I was thinking I'd do one for these camera strap covers and, for those of you who have smaller cameras without neck straps, a cute carrying case. What do you think? (You'd probably get the strap cover tutorial first though, since I haven't decided on the best way to make a case yet. ;)

I bet you noticed that I failed. Again. But I'm sure you were expecting that. Instead of uploading photos of my crafty things, I decided to take a ton of photos instead. I hope you don't mind being bombarded with photography for a while....'cause I can see it coming. ;)

My beautiful green-eyed best friend humored me and my camera today and I realized that some of them would be great to enter in the portrait contest going on at Life Is Too Short Not To Wear Red Shoes, so I'm linking up with two of my favorites!

Aren't her curls lovely?

(Did the car in the background bother you? I hadn't really noticed it until my mom pointed it out...probably not the greatest background, but I can't help it now.)
