A Giveaway!

**contest ended – thank you for entering!**

A couple months ago, I had a photography mentoring session in western Virginia with one of the sweetest girls I’ve ever met. We’ve kept in touch through my Workshop on the Farm Facebook group and I’ve learned that her mama is a KNOCKOUT with needle and thread.

These camera straps bowled me over.


It’s “The Cotton Wife” in camera strap form.

It. Is. Perfect.

And I want you to have one!


Now, I am not implying that these camera straps will make you this adorable.

I am flat-out saying it – these camera straps WILL make you this adorable.




You can now tell all your friends and family, “Just one more!” and they won’t get mad at you.

Check out how cute you’ll look! How could they say no?



You might want to wear yours up a little higher… but this is certainly a fashion statement.


“You look amazing.”


Why, thank you M.K.!


Here’s how to win your camera strap:

1. Leave a comment here (making sure to fill in the boxes with your name and email so I can notify you!) telling me about the piece of clothing or accessory that makes you feel the cutest (or handsomest!). That is, what made you feel the cutest before you owned this camera strap because I am telling you this camera strap will blow that out of the water.

2. Go “like” my Facebook page for an additional entry

3. Share this on your Facebook page for a third chance to win


The winner will be announced on Friday afternoon!

Good luck!

rachel - A few months ago my grandma gave me a box of hats, each one from one of her 5 childrens’ weddings. Today we buried my dear grandma and i felt my prettiest wearing the light blue hat that she wore to my parents wedding. I felt like she was probably smiling and saying look at that crazy Rachel wearing my hat. :)

Jazmine - I feel most comfy in jeans and my favorite green Snowbird t-shirt! It reads “No Sanity Required” on the front and “Snowbird” on the back. Fits about everyday of my life that is why it is so worn out! Everyone really needs one. I don’t even wear it much anymore because it is 13 years old and is getting holes in it and I don’t want to ruin it!!!! I wish I had 10 of them!!!

June 19, 2012 - 12:47 pm

June 19, 2012 - 3:37 pm

Amanda - Those are ADORABLE! I am already a fan of yours, of course, but wanted to chime in here.

Nothing, even an awesome camera strap like that, would make me as cute as those cutie-pies pictured. But I must say that my straw hat that I wear to the beach makes me look cutest! :)

June 19, 2012 - 3:44 pm

debbielynne - My flip flops!

June 19, 2012 - 3:45 pm

Margaretha Brooks - I like when I put on my sandals that are just a strap across the toes and ankle strap. They make my feet look pretty cute! lol

June 20, 2012 - 10:47 am

Rose Jeter - If you asked me that in the fall/winter I would say a blazer that I wear all the time. Its soft, neutral color that goes with any thing and makes me feel a little trendy when we get away from the farm. But right now in the summer its my new yellow shorts. NEVER thought I would wear shorts that are a bright yellow but I love the way they make me feel cute and my husband says they look great every time I wear them. They can be dressed up or down, love that!

June 20, 2012 - 11:09 am

joye barr - The type of clothing that makes me feel most beautiful is a tie between my favorite jeans and my iPhone lol

June 20, 2012 - 5:14 pm

June 21, 2012 - 5:31 am

Stephanie Lawrence - I just got a pair of blue jeans that are making me feel super sassy right now, and normally that is not the case. But seriously, they make me feel like I have super powers! Don’t ask :) I’ve liked your page since forever ago too, and would love the opportunity to win one of these straps because they are absolutely amazing and would look so much better than my yucky canon strap!!!
