I got an early birthday present this week! Isn’t it pretty?
First thing I did (aside from take a boatload of pictures) was rip apart the Canon-branded strap it came with and replace it with a new one. I made this patchwork strap from scraps that were leftover when I made my beach blanket last year. (I have a feeling I will still be using those leftover strips five years from now…)
I rushed through the construction of this strap, so it definitely has its flaws, but I still really like it. I’ve been wanting one of these ever since I started seeing them pop up around the blogosphere a few years ago. (I don’t remember where I first saw them, but I do know that Erin makes and sells really lovely ones from time to time, if you’re in the market!)
We had some promising news employment-wise for Neil this week, which led us to discuss my camera situation a little further. I pledged to kick in any money I’d managed to save in the last two months, along with any birthday money that might come my way this week, and Neil went ahead and ordered it. I’m so excited to play with it this weekend!
