cute & stylish search continues

I blogged about my search for cute and stylish camera bags recently.  I have been receiving some slack from Chris about not using my DSLR enough, so it is time to search some more and make a decision.

I still love the Epiphanie bags. But through some communication with the company, found out that they will release new styles this summer.  If you know me, you know that I like to weigh all of my options and not make a decision until I am positive that I will be completely satisfied with my choice.  If you know me, then you also know that I can be incredibly indecisive.  So there you go.  Making a choice about where to go for dinner is usually equally difficult, let alone choose a bag for my camera. SO the prospect of potentially liking a new bag coming out this summer more, keeps me from committing at this moment. Also, I am concerned that Belle may be too bright and so am liking Lola more. Here is a review of  the Lola bag.  These bags will not ship until March probably...but I have waited this long!

Here are some new bags I found since my last search. 

So here is the Kelly Moore bag. Cute, right? Love that they come in 7 different colors. If you click this link, you can watch a video of the bag in action.  Kinda cool.  Actually made me realize that this is not what I am looking for though. More of a messenger style and less like what I am envisioning.

Some others to consider...

Another messenger, so it does not make it on the short list.

Jo Totes are one of the lesser expensive bags that I have found, but a little too plain for what I am thinking I want.


*emera now makes a quilted bag! Love that it can hold a laptop!!!  And that this one zips! The other *emera bags do not zip.

The search will continue...I am not completely satisfied....yet!

Happy Valentine's Day

It seems everyone sends out holiday or New Year cards their first married year, so I wanted to be different and send out Valentines. Okay, actually I did not have myself organized enough to send out holiday or New Year cards. But, I am actually glad.  I love the red balloons, red photobooth curtain with the bit of red for Valentines day. Perfect for Valentines. Working at the last minute, but not willing to make these Saint Patrick's Day, Easter or first day of spring cards, I had to work quick.  Even quicker I had to get them printed.  I settled on the printing.  Time was limited and I do not know where to get good printing done quickly. Kinko's offered the quickest solution. So to make up for the lack of fancy printing, I created cute wrap around address labels. Our return was wrapped to the back and written vertically.  
It was a fun project, and I am very critical of anything I create.  So while I like them, there is always room for improvement!  Happy Valentines Day 2010!
