I'm a Nominee!

Two pieces of great news came this morning.

The first being my Briefcase in Army Green Leather is in today's Etsy Finds e-mail about Leather & Lace.

The second being that my Briefcase in Wintergreen Leather is one of the 5 finalists (of 800 entries) for Best Handmade Bag for the 2010 Independent Handbag Designer Awards at Parsons in NY! Whoa!

I realize the competition is really tough, so I am not super confident I can win this category (I mean, look at those other bags, for real?!), but it's great honor to be among those beauties!

Stay tuned for a poll from InStyle Magazine to vote for your favorite bag for the winner of the Audience Fan Favorite.

Big big thanks to Kate for informing me about the IHDA Competition! :)
