A great new sponsor and giveaway!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!Giveaway Closed!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I have something exciting to share with you today.
Especially for those who love a brand new bag (among other things).  Mmmmm.

Stephanie, a consultant with Thirty-One, sells everything from bags to baskets and even items for the little ones.  The entire collection is full of color and sass……….and will certainly add that perfect flair to your life.
And I love that you can sit right at your computer and flip through their interactive catalog, and enjoy browsing through all of their products here…….just like flipping through a magazine on your couch.
Or you can looks through each item individually here.
Whatever suits your fancy.
But let me just show you the great Thirty-One style.
First of all, I have to show you their Skirt Purses.  They are purses, that come as the basic shape of a purse…..but have the capability to switch purse “skirts” as often as your taste changes.
So there is the basic purse down below on the left, and there it is on the right with skirt attached.  You can easily remove them and slip your purse right into a new cover……..easy as that.

Just look at all of the variety.

Check out this Ruffle Skirt purse, found here
Then if you tire of the ruffles, switch your purse skirt to one of these:
(More choices available too.) 

But, there’s more at Thirty-One.
They have these great Around Town Blankets  found here, that can be rolled up into a bundle with a velcro closure.  They are double sided and perfect for the car or picnics.

Or how about these sleek magazine baskets found here.  Love the shape.

Or maybe you just need a great new pleated tote like the one found here.  
Comes with a laminated lining.

Or, are you in the need of a new lunch sack?  (Or insulator for baby food/bottles?)  
Don’t you just love this Thermal Zipper Tote found here?
Love all of these great styles at Thirty-One.  
 I can think of several reasons why I need many of their items.
And yes, great news!  
Stephanie with Thirty-One is offering a giveaway here on Make It and Love It.  
She is offering her large utility tote to one of you.  
For free.
It’s a nice large oversized bag with handles, with a covered rim that keeps the tote open.  
Then it easily collapses for storage.  
You can throw or store any ‘ol thing in there.  Perfect for the house, car trips, picnics, storage,etc.
  • Save
But the winner will actually be receiving the color below…..the Papparazi Dot.  
How cute are those big polka dots.
