Tutorial Tuesday with VM Jess

If you are new here, this party is to showcase your weekly tutorials. What counts as a tutorial? Anything to "teach me stuff" counts - a recipe, a kid's craft, a DIY project, how you got your baby to sleep through the night ... I'm not picky.

Just link up below so we can all pop over to learn something new. (My weekly tutorial is a Space Saving Closet Hanger . You can also find one of my projects and many others in this free Mother's Day E-Book from FaveCrafts).

Let's meet our sponsor...shall we?

VM Jess is your go to spot for fun and funky camera straps on the web. Ironically, her etsy shop was born after she learned how to jazz up the strap she got with her new Mother's Day camera several years ago. She had just learned to sew - A girl after our own heart!

She deconstructed the ugly strap the camera came with and made herself a fun new one. Business grew as family and friends saw her fun strap and requested one of their own. 2000+ straps later, she has a successful business. This is my favorite kind of story!

I love fun and funky anything, and these straps are both. Just look at the amazing fabrics and color combinations!

And I loooove this red scroll:

Do you have a small point and shoot? No worries, she's got it covered with cute little wristlets:
