embee said...

three is my lucky numba so id better comment twice.

embee said...

there we go, here i am as numba three.

i'd love a bag, dark espresso brown with a very pale blue. i so love the combo.

Wannabe said...

I'm in. Like Flynn. Well since I HAVE a Gretta....I'd like a big sturdier interfacing...something just a bit stiffer. And a pocket or two inside would be nice. I'd also like to see interfacing in the handles and maybe even a Gretta II since Gretta I JUST fits all my crap in it.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new tags.

Well, um, pink and brown would be cute...so would orange and turquoise, red and pink and brown and teal. :)

Wannabe said...

I meant a BIT sturdier interfacing. Gaw, I need blogging spell checker.

I really like the pink bag. Being the only girl with three brothers, my mom inundated me with pink. I hated it, and refused to wear pink for years. In the last few years, however, I have come to love pink again. I would love to see a big bold pink pattern. I love this bag.

Sara said...

Cute tags. Cute bags. How about green and brown, like peacock green and coffee brown.

Sara said...

Oh and hi.

jen said...

nice choice of font resembles futura a little. sans serif looks good on black

yo_mama said...

I want to win a purse or a headband! I love pink and cream combinations; they're the best.

n8andbumber said...

embee said...

how about mini-gretta or something complimentary to the bag. a little pouchy thing to match. as you can see i'm no designer.

I love ANYTHING pink and summery looking! I am interested in seeing a messenger type bag that is still pink and girly. With it being summer and all i'm looking for a light weight bag that can still hold all my crap, but it isn't cumbersome to carry around when i'm outside at fairs, ect.

oh yes and the tags are faboo!

Sarah said...

I love contests!

sarah said...

And, your new tags are great!

Kelly said...

please ignore my dumb husband's comment, and don't count him in the contest. unless you count his comment for mine! :)

embee said...

i should have a contest. i could give away dirty diapers, i have plenty.

Susan said...

I really like this bag! I agree with the other color combos that people suggested, and the tags are very cute!

(hope its not weird that I'm commenting here, I am absurdly jealous of your creativity, so I check now and again to see the new stuff that you've made)

yo_mama said...

No, I want my own chance to win a purse!

Hey sweetie,
Can I qualify even though I am related to you? If so, I would like some winter colors, creams and browns would be nice, seeing as I already have a summer one for hospital trips. Did I tell you just how handy that bag has been?? And I absolutely love your bag tags ! Miss you
love'
mom

tinka wit' it said...

wow, you guys are full of great ideas!! thanks for all the color tips and manda, i'm totally interfacing the handles now, after much use and abuse on my original gretta i noticed they could use a little help staying in shape.

susy! please lurk away, even better comment when you like something! congrats on the gretta bag! i'll ship her out to you tomorrow.

i think i will have a messenger bag in the works. i like the idea of something a bit bigger myself.

and mom, of course you can win!

yo_mama. you're only allowed to win if you promise to give the prize to kelly.

embee, no one wants your dirty diapers. or drew's either.

oh, and this comment number 21 will count for krista since she's on vacation right now.

the contest is not closed yet!

Kelly said...

if yo_mama wins, and DOESN'T give it to me, i think i need to be worried. whatever is, i'm thinking it's pretty girlie.

embee said...

why wouldn't you want my dirty diapers? they're the greatest.

Sara said...

How about a cell phone pocket inside?

daisygirl said...

I think a funky black and white pattern would be great too!

daisygirl said...

I think I have a purse fetish. Along with my shoe fetish. And clothes fetish. And makeup fetish. And baby fetish I guess since I'm having another one of those too!

tinka wit' it said...

what what!!! congrats carly!!

um, this post #27 will count for um, me. and then i'll just pull out another number :)

Susan said...

I am super excited about getting Gretta! Cameron actually bought it as a surprise, but he is not good about keeping the surprise factor in surprises, lol.

African Kelli said...

oooh, please let me win. That bag is adorable!! I just love it.

Kelly said...

i'm sorry. that's all i can say.

tinkerwiththis said...

kelly, i'm thinking you have an unfair advantage. or a psychotic husband. one of the two.

Kelly said...

maybe a little of both.

embee said...

silly kelly's husband. here's a suggestion, make a gretta diaper bag. now kelly we just need to know....pink or blue???

Kelly said...

i like the way embee thinks!! just about 2 more weeks until i find out!

embee said...

i've decided, for our next, we won't be finding out. OR, we'll find out but keep it a secret.

who am i kidding. i wouldn't be able to keep it a secret. i'd tell everyone but tell them, "no one else knows, so DON'T SAY ANYTHING." and then when the baby comes and they all let it out that they knew, i'd be in big trouble but no one can get mad at someone who just had a baby so they'd all be mad, but smiling, and shaking their heads, saying, "OH that Marybeth, such a funny girl."

Sara said...

MB=dork.

Sara said...

Oh, and a diaper bag sounds really good, but it would need to be made with a zipper and the inside lined with something that was waterproof or easy to clean in case of spills. Oh, and lots and lots of pockets.

Susan said...

Marybeths comment about not telling anyone sounds like a nifty sitcom episode, especially the part where everyone says "OH that Marybeth, such a funny girl."

I'd totally watch that show, lol.

Wannabe said...

Dude. Freaks come out of the wordwork when you mention a contest.

daisygirl said...

I love having a pocket for all my lipstick and lipgloss so it doesn't get lost in the bottom.

daisygirl said...

I also lose pens like crazy in my purse. I once had a purse that had a slim pocket for pens and that was great. It was on the short side of the purse not the big sides. Does that make sense?

tinkerstinker said...

daisy! i was just thinking that today....i need a cell phone pocket on the exterior. so i think the next gretta version will include interior and an exterior pocket...48 comments, holy crap! you people love free stuff as much as me...

Susan said...

If you could make a messenger sized Gretta bag with an interior pocket for pens, lip gloss etc. and an exterior pocket for a cell phone, it would totally be my next purchase!

embee said...

thanks suzy, maybe i should get right on that - write a sitcom and then star in it.

here's my thought, i have this black purse, it has pen pockets, a cell phone pocket, a big pocket for ALL my lip glosses. it has a nice gusset and it had a little light thing in it but the previous owner used it so much that the bulb is dead. why don't you give me THAT purse?

oh wait you already did. thanks cheri.

i so want a messenger bag with a cell pocket!!

Jana said...

I'm a computer idiot. Ignore the e-mails unless they count as comments. i really enjoy the bags you've made.

Jana said...

Red, baby blue, and apple green would be so cute!

Jana said...

What about an adjustable strap so you can throw it over your head and keep your hands free?

Jana said...

I agree with the funky black and white idea, I just bought some awesome scrapbook paper in those colors. and the diaper bag idea is a winner too.

Jana said...

The bold funky prints with more mellow complimentary or contrasting details are the most eye catching in my humble opinion.
