Monday Giveaway: Shabby Straps

When I first stumbled across Shabby Straps, I fell in love with the DSLR camera straps. And when I got mine I wasn't disappointed.  I love them!  I attached it right away to my DSLR, which pretty much made me want to use it all the time, just so I could look at the cute strap.  Which is kind of silly, but as we all know, I love a little personality, so this was right up my alley.

The straps themselves are high quality camera straps.  So you don't need to worry about a flimsy strap failing you and your camera.  In fact, with the reinforcement of the ribbon, I'm willing to bet that Shabby Straps are even stronger than a regular camera strap!




When I got the smaller camera wrist strap, I have to be honest, I didn't quite know what to do with it. I don't have a point and shoot, which is what the smaller strap is generally intended for. It was actually kind of fun getting creative and finding new ways to use it.  First, I tried it on my cell phone, which has a little hook just right for this kind of strap.


It only lasted on my phone for about a day. My idea was that I would drop it less. Which was generally the case. But with the strap on, I couldn't fit it in my pocket.  But if you are someone who drops your phone all the time and never puts it in your pocket, there's one idea for you!

The second place I put it was on my keys. And there it has remained. It is so much easier to find my keys in my purse now.  I hate standing next to my car, out in the cold, digging through my entire purse to try and find my keys.  With the strap on, the keys still somehow manage to sink to the bottom, but the strap almost always floats to the top. I love it!

If you are looking to add a little personality to you camera, keys, cell phone, backpack, or pretty much anything you want, you will love Shabby Straps.  These would also make a great gift for the photographer in you life! If you are local to Utah, Shabby Straps are also available at Heartland Paper Company in West Jordan and Bountiful.
