Happy New Year Elvis Purse Giveaway!

Elvis is looking for a new home...on the shoulder of one of my lovely readers! I love this bag and all the fun fabrics I used to make it. Elvis is featured on one side with funky owls on the pockets.

The reverse side has those funky owls and a great geometric apple/people repetitive pattern. What fun!

  1. I Can't Help Falling In Love with this purse.

    Spent a great 2 days in Chicago with a couple college girlfriends. The "Mad Men" themed NYE party was the classiest gig I've ever been a part of... complete with a vintage 1950s hat and cute dress with ruffles and pockets.

    Due to the party, I think my resolution has become to "class it up" in 2011. And what could be classier than an Elvis/Funky Owl reversible purse?!

    Hope you had a fabulous celebration as well!

  2. too cute!! I rang in the new year watching movies and having fun with friends. and my goal for this year is to finallyyy get a literary agent. here's hoping!

  3. I went to a singles dance with my sisters, refused to talk to any men at all, made friends with two fat girls, and played a lot of Rock Band. My goals for the year including getting a scooter (one that goes a breathtaking 55mph!), staying true to my waistline reduction goals, and taking a vacation to anywhere that isn't Las Vegas!

  4. You are too cute! This purse is great! I worked most of my New Year's Eve, and then went home and had a nice quiet evening at home as the new year rolled in. As for resolution, not too many this year, just some new life changes that need to occur! :)

  5. Love all the New Years stories so far!

    I'm posting this comment for a reader who contacted me that she's having trouble leaving a comment:
    "I tried posting on the blog, but I am not smart enough! Here you go! Alright!! I rang in the new year by lying to my son. He wanted to stay up until midnight, but was getting cranky around 9:30. So...lo and behold...midnight came early and we got a good night's sleep. No resolutions...just to keep on keepin' on. It's not as easy as it sounds! Ha! :)"

    Also, she posted it on her facebook. Double whammy!

  6. I spent New Year's Eve with my family, a bottle of champagne, and a DVD. My New Year's resolution is to let fewer bottles of champagne sit lonely on the shelf.
    Love the purse! and all the stuff you create!

  7. I too spent New Years with my family. Had dinner at with my Sister's family then home. We celebrated the ball drop at 10:00 (NC time) with the kids. I think my resolution is to slow down and enjoy. Also to travel. (Go Figure) I REALLY hope I win. I've been looking at your purses on etsy. Love em.

  8. My new years was not too exciting. Stayed home, it was way to cold to go outside, and watched some TV and played the game Last Word with my roommate and my boyfriend. In bed and falling asleep just as mid-night came.
    Don't really have any official resolutions; just gonna try to continue to live a healthy lifestyle.

    Congrats to you and the family on the baby news!!
