High Fives

Not only were these sale #500 and #501 in my Etsy shop (a milestone!), I was left the nicest comment from the buyer:
Thank you so much for my custom "5 orders". They are FANTASTIC! just as I knew they would be. You're going to make my friend so very, very happy. Both items are stunning! Hard to say which she'll like better. Thank you again and all the best to you as you continue to create and make the world more beautiful.

Thank me? No, THANK YOU!

Give Away!

Hey, hey! We're giving away a Blue 8 Recycled Sail Tote over at Etsy in honor of Earth Day.

OK, so you say Earth Day was yesterday. Officially, you are correct. But just as all the environmental awareness that takes place on Earth Day should spill over beyond just one day, your opportunity to win this tote extends beyond the official Earth Day. You have until 11:59:59 p.m. ET Wednesday April 29, 2010 to check out Etsy's eco videos and leave a comment.

Good Luck!

To celebrate Earth Day, I am introducing several new recycled sail tote bag designs in Reiter8's Etsy shop that are nature inspired.

They are fully lined in 100% organic cotton canvas, a fabric was produced from environmentally friendly materials and fabrication methods using sustainable fibers and low impact dyeing methods preserving the Earth's precious resources.

Happy Earth Day.

File under: Beyond Cute

Tara aka weirdwolf over at Etsy has created yet another fantastic Handmade Portrait. This time with photographer Sharon Montrose.

I am in love with Sharon Montrose's photo series of baby animals. You will be, too. Have you seen the baby porcupine?. Watch as she photographs a baby giraffe - !

Top Pick

Reiter8's Green 8 Tote was Jillian McCoy's the top pick in her article Spring Fashion: Top 5 Nautical Tote Bags. (No Foolin' - it is April first after all.)

"This bag has enough cool to last you way past the warmer months - imagine how cute this would be carrying your books next fall."

The other 4 picks are fantastic and as Julian notes: all will take you from work to the neighbor's barbecue to your first beach trip of the year effortlessly - and still look pretty cute doing it.

I'm dreaming of that first trip to the beach, how 'bout you?
