Jo Toes Giveaway

Happy November to you all!  Does anyone out there like photography like I do?  Do you have a DSLR camera?  Well, every good photographer (or aspiring to be a decent one like me) needs a cute and girly camera bag, right?
For over a year, I had been wishing for a specific camera bag...from my favorite camera bag desiger...Jo Totes!  If you spend any amount of time in blogland at all, you know Jo Toes well!  I learned about them at The TomKat Studio, Less Cake More Frosting, and The House of Smiths (to name a few). The bags are made of leather, and look just like an oversized purse.  So, whether you need to take your camera with you on field trips, family vacations, or on photo shoots with your family, Jo Totes has the bag for you.  


The padded interior can be custom fitted not only to protect a camera and lenses, but also to accommodate and organize items like a wallet, music, phone, keys, cosmetics and more.  Padding is sewn directly into the interior lining on all four sides and the bottom of the bags. The bottom is also equipped with four metal feet to guard your bag from rough, dirty, or damp surfaces. Inside of each Jo Tote are removable pads which are completely customizable—you can use as many or as few pads as you wish, arranged in the way that best suits your camera, lenses, and other items. Each bag also includes pockets, strong and comfortable shoulder straps, a top-zippered closure, and a removable cross-body strap.


Look who's sporting their own Jo Totes bags!  Do you recognize any of these crafty ladies at a Creative Estates Conference?
From left to right:  Destiny (A Place for Us); Jen (Tatertots & Jello); Ellie G. (Less Cake More Frosting); Shelley Smith (The House of Smiths); Amy (The Idea Room) 



A few weeks ago, when I successfully finished my online photography workshop with Emilie, I rewarded myself with MY NEW CAMERA BAG...the Millie in gray!  I LOVE it already!  I've taken it to the pumpkin patch, to take Halloween pics of my boy, and to my mom's 60th birthday party! 


Jo Totes offers four beautiful camera bag designs...

The Betsy

The Millie

The Rose

The Tote

Here's the inside of the Rose bag.

Today, you have the chance to win the Jo Totes bag of your choice!  How AWESOME is that??? 

{Here's what you have to do...}

1. Make sure you are a follower of FBU!

2. Go to Jo Totes Shop Page and tell us which bag you would choose (and the color).


***The giveaway will be open for five days and close on Saturday, November 5 at 9:00 pm (EST).  The winner will be announced soon after.***

Good luck, friends!

  55. I have been wanting a Jo Totes bag since I first learned about them a couple of months ago...I have the hardest time deciding...I love the colors of the Millie, but I like the extra pockets on the Betsy...I'm curious what made you go with the Millie?

    Oh but I do love the rose bag too...Oh I'd be thrilled with any of them! Ok but I guess I have to choose one...

    Ok I'm going to say I would like the Rose bag in Raspberry! So so cute!
