I have had a DSLR camera for awhile now. In fact, I bought into the hype when Ashton Kutcher was still touting the Nikon D40. Just recently, I dug my camera out and decided I needed a few accessories. First, I couldn’t resist this padded strap cover by Happy Snapz over on Etsy. The shop owner at Martilena is custom-making my DSLR bag insert in “Wine”, the deep red, for just thirty-five dollars! It also comes in nine other durable nylon fabrics. Now, I have no excuse not to shoot.
Handmade on Peconic Bay is a handmade print company by husband of yesterday’s post feature, Cynthia Rybakoff. Matt Shapoff creates beautiful paper products using 19th century cyanotype techniques in combination with 21st century digital design.
Right now Matt has a variety of cards out for the holiday season but I think my favorites will always be his nautical-inspired prints. Matt has an Etsy site where you can accquire some of these mini pieces of art for your very own!
