8 New Designs in the Fall/Winter Handbag Collection from Debra Cortese Designs

NEW fall-winter collection Debra Cortese Design handbags

I’m beyond excited to introduce my new Fall/Winter Handbag Collection – especially for those of you who get the part about sharing “the beauty, power and magic of nature!” So many of my friends are gardeners, landscape architects, plant, flower and tree enthusiasts, people who truly feel the joy of being in tune with nature. They are also the top collectors of my art and Debra Cortese Design bags.

I’ve been creating nature art and designs since the early 80’s and it was in 2007 when I decided to add a line of handbags to my ever growing project portfolio. Except for a brief hiatus last year due to a trio of family and personal challenges, my line of Nature’s Energy design bags has grown steadily.

I’ve just released the 2013 Fall/Winter Collection of 8 new designs, several have definite northern, Catskill Mountain energy and colors and of course I’ve included a few that emit the wonderful warm energy of South Florida subjects! This collection features wild creature and nature element designs that are intentionally created to energetically share the natural vibrations as I first experienced them while photographing and researching each design. Tribal Zebra, Peacock Diamond Blues, Winter Snake Browns, Leopard Reflections, Red Dragon, Baby Greens in Gray, Silver Maple and No. 9 Bridge Blues are all available on five fashionable bag styles: a large business/travel tote, a soft side casual tote, the cross body hipster bag, a leather wrist wallet and a dopp bag.
You can see all eight designs on all 5 bag styles HERE. Plus, when you order any of the new bags between November 15th and the 26th, the shipping if FREE in the continental USA, and… several of the styles include a FREE matching leather wrist wallet/cell phone case (a $75.00 value). My way of thanking you for supporting my designs and helping me share the magic of nature!

If you’re already on my email list, you’ll soon be receiving my Holiday Season Newsletter with some very special members-only offers.

If you’re not on the list yet, you can join right now by clicking HERE and you’ll receive a great BOGO FREE offer with your welcome email!

New Trio Collections make perfect Mother’s Day Gifts

It’s a long story for another post, or may be better to let it go and just move forward, but…
I’m back in the handbag design business and to celebrate I’ve just finished the first new TRIO COLLECTIONS.

Peacock Feathers (which is an updated version of last year’s top selling design), Aquarius Blues – a design that incorporates one of my Flower of Life astrology patterns (I plan to create a TRIO Collection for all 12 astrology signs), and Golden Fractals, a reinvented pattern that is based on a detail of the leaves of the Oleander plant.

Each TRIO includes a large, casual (beach) tote bag, matching flip flops and a matching leather wrist clutch. The regular retail value of these 3 items would be $204. Place your order by April 22, 2013 for delivery by Mother’s Day, May 12th and pay only $129 for all three products, PLUS, shipping is included for addresses within the continental USA.

All products are created to order and I have a guarantee on all of my work. It’s on each product page.
Place your order today or before April 22nd if it’s for a Mother’s Day Gift. If you have any questions, call or email me. My contact info is on each page or HERE.

Please leave a comment to let me know your favorite design in the introductory TRIO COLLECTIONS. .

 

 

UPDATE: Deadline to order for Mother’s Day was April 22nd, but you can always purchase a
GIFT CERTIFICATE and she can choose her favorite colors and design.

Angel in the Bird Bath with Tomatoes

Tis the season for gifts of magical nature art!

Or better yet, practical, wearable, gifts that are not only endowed with the beautiful, joyful energies of nature …. they also have the ability to protect ones feet, adorn ones iphone or ipad and carry ones important papers, laptops, yoga gear or baby supplies.

Just click on any of the images and you can get all the details plus see many more designs!

I’m in the process of putting together my annual Holiday Open Studio event and as always, I like to have several brand new bag designs plus some new stocking stuffer type items. This year, CafePress came through with a fun new product that I just got carried away with. I’ve had so much fun creating patterns for the new flip flops and I can’t wait to see people’s reactions to them on Sunday. Several clients have already ordered multiple pairs and the new iphone covers are a big hit as well.

I have new Hipster* style bags and the Peacock Feather Blues is already a big hit as well as the deluxe Business Travel style bag. Note: 5 top selling designs are specially priced for this holiday season.
If you order by Dec. 12th you can have them delivered by Christmas in the continental USA!

*(Hipsters are not available online yet but will be very, very soon!)

Time to go. I have an appointment to meet with my chief Elf advisor who gently but firmly distracts me from even more BSO’s (bright shiny objects) so I stay focused on the truly productive projects 🙂
