The Albany Bag

There are so many new products in Thirty-One Gifts' new Fall/Winter catalog that it's difficult to decide where to start. So I turn to my good friend and fellow Oceans 31 teammate Sandy who is raving about the new Albany Bag. It's her favorite new bag. Now that I've really taken a look at it myself, it's moving up the list to one of my favorites too.

It's a good size purse that isn't too big. It has the perfect length handles for throwing it over your shoulder and it stays there. The straps are leather, it has a zipper closure and there are little "feet" on the bottom. The Albany bag is available in Black, Dot Dot and Chocolate Spots.

Personalization with Thirty-One

What makes a Thirty-One Gifts item so truly unique is that most of them can be personalized... a one of a kind gift! For only an additional $6, you can add a name, single letter, initials or even your favorite phrase to our purses, totes, thermal bags and spa items. When looking through the catalog, anything marked with an "E" can be embroidered.

When personalizing your item, you need to decide the font and color of the thread. Here is a copy of the latest Embroidery Guide to help with that decision. There are 24 different font styles and 26 font colors. This guide is so helpful because it has the full alphabet for each font as well as suggested font colors for most fabric patterns.

When ordering a personalized item online, please be sure to enter your personalization EXACTLY as you want it to appear on your item. If you type all caps, it will come all caps. For 3-initial monogram, they will appear in the order you place them. Read through the guide carefully for more tips on ordering embroidered items.

Join me on Facebook

Facebook is another one of my latest obsessions. I check it all the time. Why must I know every detail about all my friends' lives? But I do and it's crazy! If you're on Facebook too, you probably know what I'm talking about.

To combine 2 of my favorite things, I designed my own Facebook Fan page for my Thirty-One business. I post specials, pictures and updates. I'll even start to put a few "Facebook Fans Only" specials here and there to keep it interesting.

So, will you be my friend? It's easy to do. Just click HERE or on the link on the right of this page (under the picture of the catalog).

See you on Facebook!
