Time to buckle up, Photojojo fans.
We’re not sure who decided that camera accessories should be ugly, bulky and downright drab, but we’re not fans.
So we’ve got a huge crush on these hip new camera straps we just found.
Salvaged from the back seats of some funky old automobiles, these straps feature adjustable slide buckles and are super-comfy, and super-strong.
Plus, each one is made by hand in Chicago using only love & recycled materials.
Get yours in Porsche Purple, T-bird Teal, Mercedes Gold, or Dodge Silver!

Photojojo science update: we have learned of a way to tear holes in the space-time continuum and stare back into the mists of time.*
Being the existential daredevils that we are, we’re risking reality as we know it to share this discovery with all of you. Proceed with caution.
Be warned: though you may peer into the window in the space-time continuum, do not fall through. The other side of the window is a nightmarish half-life of Morlocks, flux capacitors and Michael J. Fox.
*Yeah, we know that the last four times we tore holes in the space-time continuum we ended up destroying the known universe. We swear that won’t happen again this time. Probably.
p.s. Hey everybody, sorry about the broken link in Monday’s newsletter. Boy, are our faces red.

We are known far and wide for our love of shiny metal objects.
And some of you may have heard a rumor that we also like photos.
So, naturally, when we found a big olâ€™ piece of shiny sheet metal at the hardware store,
Enter the magnetic bulletin board: huge, affordable, and so easy to make you just won’t believe it.
Never leave the house without two things:
Why the knife? Because it’s a multitasking tool that you can use a kajillion different ways.
Why a camera? For exactly the same reason.
Weâ€™ve rounded up so many alternate uses for your camera that you’ll start bringing it everywhere. Use it as a flashlight, a memory aid, or a mirror, and youâ€™ll never let it leave your side again.
Your camera may be a toy, but there’s no reason it can’t also be a tool.

After knocking around with it for a few weeks, here’s what we think:

Ever picked up the SkyMall catalog on a long flight and been struck dumb by the motivational posters?
Now really, who (besides Angela) ever got motivated by a picture of a kitten and a pithy slogan?
You’re better off making your own motivational posters. And with these two tools, it’s easy — upload your photo, slap on a caption, and skip the corporate dreck.
Pro tip: If your office actually has motivational posters, replace ‘em with your versions and see how long it takes for your boss to notice. Heh heh heh.
p.s. What’s the difference? Well, both of ‘em are free, and both of ‘em let you buy prints. But if you use the code JOJO25, our pals at Big Huge Labs will give you 25% off!
p.p.s. We heart iHeartFaces. Check out their latest giveaway featuring yours truly.
