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!

I know many people, myself included, will wait until the last few days to really get serious about holiday shopping. However, for those who get it together for the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, I have several options that will bring smiles to both the men and women on your lists.
Holiday Gifts for Women…
Handbags (of course) but did you know about my holiday specials?
1. BOGO FREE – on the new fall/winter design cross body “Hipster” Bags (plus I’m extending the free shipping through Dec. 5th).
2. Get a FREE matching leather Wrist Wallet/Phone Case when you order any new Fall Winter Travel Tote, Casual Tote or Hipster (only one special offer per hipster – cannot combine 2 offers or I’ll be looking for another part time job!)
3. The 2013 Business Travel Tote Bags (not the new Fall/Winter Collection) are on sale for $170. each. That’s a savings of 40%!
4. For my sunshine loving friends, the Trio Collection Sale has also been extended. You save $65. when y
ou order one of the 3 trio sets: Peacock Feather, Aquarius Blues and Golden Fractals. The Trios include a casual tote, matching leather wrist wallet and matching flip flops!
Holiday Gifts for Men…
1. Dopp Bags in the new Fall/Winter Designs. These are great travel bags for your toiletries and are big enough to pack an extra pair of socks too!
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.
4. Calendars, Mugs, Ornaments, Shirts, Hats, Shower Curtains, Pillows and Laptop Skins can also be found in my shops on Cafepress and Zazzle.

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.
See them all at: www.cortesedesignbags.com
Be sure to click through to your favorite design for very special Holiday Shopping bonuses like a free matching leather wrist wallet and even a BOGO special on Cross body Hipster bags for new subscribers.

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!
