New Spring Bags feature ‘Orchid’ – Pantone’s color of the year

I was definitely inspired by Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year, Orchid, which is a blend of mauve-rose-purple-pinks. I knew I had a Vanda Orchid image with these very colors and so, one of the new spring bag designs features an actual Vanda Orchid image, complete with spring greenery in the background.

Since I’m very focused on creating designs and art that incorporate the ancient and powerful Flower of Life, this pattern is also included within the two new spring designs.

I’m testing a new marketing strategy and am limiting the production of the Vanda Orchid and Sensuous Orchid Black Flower of Life designs on Cross-Body Hipster bags to only 200 of each design. This may be a terrific incentive or a total flop, but I won’t know unless I put it out there. Let me know if you have any opinions on this by commenting on this post, by sharing on commenting via the Facebook or other social media links below, or via email to me at debra at debracortese dot com.

Welcome Spring…. please arrive soon!

2. Messenger/Laptop Bags or man bags are great for carrying all of your business papers, laptop or tablet, plus there’s room for personal items and the sturdy, padded cross body strap makes it easy to carry. Check out the Silver Maple Bark Design. It is a pattern that I created from a photo of an actual section of bark from a silver maple at the Boston Arboretum, or the Snake Pattern. This was from a photo of an actual rainbow snake that was living at Silver Heights Organic Nursery in Cochecton Center, NY this past summer. The snake was quite colorful, but for the manly design, it has been modified to more subdued colors which actually accentuate the design!

3. Here’s the link to my FLASKS and Cell Phone Cases which feature my sacred geometry designs in combination with astrology signs. Note: these are great gifts for men and women.

40 Fashionable Bags Especially for Nature Lovers

Does a walk in nature create a sense of joy in your heart? Have you ever hugged a tree or marveled at the gorgeous twinkling moonlight on  newly fallen snow? Let’s make that twinkling twilight on gently rolling ocean waves for my Florida friends!
All of the designs on the new Fall/Winter Handbag Collections share the beauty, power and magic of nature’s energy. I’m always photographing elements of nature that ‘feel’ good – because they are literally, sharing the vibrations of their  location, colors, the time of day, the smells, sounds and sights of nature’s seasonal effects. Nature has so many beneficial vibrations and all we have to do is tune in to align with this power.

All of the designs in my new Fall/Winter Handbag Collections are created to energetically share the amazing vibrations of the flora, fauna or location they are based on. The 8 new designs, available on 5 different styles, are: Tribal Zebra, Peacock Diamond Blues, Red Dragon, Leopard Reflections, Snake Pattern Browns, Silver Maple, No. 9 Bridge Blues and Baby Greens in Gray.
