So many readers have written me asking a range of questions from what settings I used to take a photo to recommendations on cameras, to my favorite question of all, which is “where did you get your cool camera strap?”
That’s the question that’s easiest to answer, because I rarely remember what settings I used to take a photo (I shoot on the auto dial mostly) and I can only point people in the right direction to researching a camera because I have no idea what their needs are. But the camera strap question is an easy one to answer.
I love the strap that I have on my camera (there’s a photo of it not too far down my sidebar) and bought it a couple of years ago from a vendor I found on etsy. Unfortunately however, that vendor isn’t making them anymore.
I was able to find this little number, however, at Boneca Linda, another etsy vendor.
I just love these colors.
And the craftsmanship is perfect.
There are many different designs available and these two were bought as gifts. They came within only days of my having ordered them and included a lovely thank-you note. I can definitely recommend this seller.
One thing to keep in mind when buying a camera strap is that some are sold only as covers for your existing camera strap, and some are like this, which is an entire strap that must be threaded onto your camera’s side posts. You also want a material on the underside that won’t slip and slide all over your shoulder.
And just to throw even more into the mix, this is a gadget-keeper I found at Janine King Designs. It will fit anything from an iPhone to a Blackberry to my regular old Verizon cell phone. I originally bought it on her etsy site, but on February 4, Janine opened her new shop on Artfire. You can use either link to check out her offerings.
Your selections at Janine King Designs are made to order and will take a little longer for you to receive. There’s a cornucopia of other useful items available on her site as well as a great fabrics from which to choose.
I don’t get any compensation from either Janine King Designs or Boneca Linda. But I know a good thing when I see it and I’m sharing it with you today.

It was great reading all of your answers to yesterday’s questions and I’ve answered everyone whose e-mail addresses were enabled. One thing I learned from that post is how many ways there are to top a baked potato. One commenter went on to write that ‘Potatoes are just a blank slate waiting to be adorned.’
And on that note, until tomorrow my friends . . .
