Sewing for Beginners - Camera Strap Cover

As a beginner at sewing, you may think that the projects you could make are not too cute. In fact there are quite a few very cute and stylish projects that you can complete with not much experience sewing. Learn to make a camera strap cover that is a bright addition and looks nice, but will also be soft and comfortable when you have your camera around your neck.

Utah Travel Series - Weekend Getaway Destinations

When thinking about traveling in Utah, there are so many different destinations to choose from. Maybe you want to do a little shopping in Salt Lake or Park City, ski at the resorts, escape the winter cold by going to St George, visit the small old downtown area of towns pretty much all across the state, or enjoy the natural wonders of the state and National Parks.

Utah really does have a lot to offer. When you are planning a weekend getaway, the hard part is narrowing down your ideal travel destination, where to stay, what to do, and where to eat.

Follow this Utah Travel Series for help deciding which Weekend Getaway Destination is right for you

To make planning your weekend getaway or travel in Utah easier, I will be writing a series throughout the year with ideas on which cities to travel to and what you can do while there. There will be suggestions for places to visit from Logan in the northern part of the state down to St George in southern Utah and lots of places in between.

In each of my articles about the different cities, I plan on sharing:

  • Lodging options
  • Sights to see
  • Places to eat
  • Local activities

Every time I write an article about a weekend getaway, I will make sure to add a link to this post so they are all in an easily accessible place for you. You can also visit the Travel tab at the top of this blog to see other traveling adventures and recommendations.

Whether you live here in the beautiful state of Utah or are planning a trip in the coming months, I hope I can share with you some helpful ideas about where to visit, local eateries, and what to do while visiting.

Favorite newly published creative books cooking quilting knitting


I enjoy being creative; whether it's in my crafting room, in the kitchen, puttering in my garden (or planning for spring days when I can plant one), relaxing and destressing while coloring, or behind my camera. I love to try new things, but sometimes I need a little help understanding how to do things. I search out books to help me understand different techniques I'm not familiar with.

I hope that you find a book or two here that will enrich your life, inspire you to try something new, or help you plan for future projects.
