The Lula


Oh man! This is a really exciting post to write. A while back Brandy, Melissa and I started talking with Nicole from Theit to design their new camera bag. We each sketched out what our ideal bag would look like. I went with a brightly colored, satchel type bag. Then we put it to a vote for all you guys to vote for your favorite. Do you remember? Everyone’s designs were AWESOME but in the end my bag ended up winning the most votes. I was shocked! I have anxiously awaited the day it would show up on my doorstep as a finished product. I have never done anything like this before. It was so fun to open that box and see my sketches come to life in a beautiful, beautiful camera bag. I have been toting it around with my camera all week. There is so much space in there! Totally lets me carry around even a few of my necessary diaper bag items as well. Without further ado… Let me introduce you to The Lula (umm how cool is it to have a bag named after you!).
