Weekend Wrap-Up Party — and Camera Coats Giveaway!!

Welcome to the Weekend Wrap-Up Party!!  

This week’s giveaway is from Camera Coats!!

Screen Shot 2013-06-14 at 10.46.04 AM

You guys have no idea how many times I’ve been scolded by my kids and my husband for carrying around my DSLR camera without a case.

The problem is that the camera bag my husband bought was ugly and black. And bulky.

Instead of a big bag, Camera Coats are made to protect your DSLR without a lot of added bulk, and they’re cute, too!


I’m always on the lookout for camera cases that are attractive and well-padded

— because I’m known to drop my electronics sometimes (oops).

This week we’re giving away a Camera Coat Bundle!


That’s a Camera Coat AND a matching camera strap — a $65 value!

Link up your projects, get a special discount on your Camera Coat, and find out how to enter to win after the break!

Here are a few of my other favorite designs from Camera Coats!


I love this color palette, and the elegant design makes it a perfect functional accessory for your trips out of the house – even to the beach!

Lucy Chevron Camera Coats

You all know I love a little chevron, and this design adds a perfect splash of patterned color to your outfit while protecting your camera!

This “Mady” water-repellent chevron Camera Coat — as do all the Camera Coats — includes space for 3 SD cards and a buckle to attach your Camera Coat to your camera strap — so you don’t lose it. (This is perfect for me — I can’t keep track of lens caps to save my life!)


And the bundle even includes a matching camera strap!

Note, too, that Camera Coats come in different sizes to accommodate all kinds of different camera sizes!

Camera Coats has a special offer for TT&J readers!

If you order a Camera Coats anytime from now through July 15th,

you can use the code TTAJ15 to receive $15 off your Camera Coat!

Plus they’re offering free shipping this summer (in the US) and all of their products are handmade in the USA and shipped by adults with disabilities who lovingly package and ship your order (thanks to a community organization (TURN Community Services)).



Here’s how to enter to win the Camera Coat Bundle:

    I like the “Mady” water-repellent chevron Camera Coat. I would gift it to my sister at the grand opening of her photography studio in two months. This is a great accomplishment for her and since she once dropped her camera in a snowbank, it would be the perfect gift. Thanks for the opportunity!!

  15. My favorite design would have to be polka dot party.
