My love of handbags started when I was in elementary school. One of my teachers carried this amazingly colorful patchwork Hobo handbag and I couldn’t keep my eyes off it! It hung on the back of her desk chair, and I wanted so badly to ask her about it, or better yet, own it. I asked for the same style of handbag for Christmas, but alas, I didn’t get it, because what third grader carries a handbag? My love of handbags has never wavered, so I was delighted to discover a new line of handbags to love in the new year.

New Year, New Handbags!

Gutzy Gear Party Fun

in , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Several weeks ago I got an email from Mom Select asking me if I would be interested in hosting a Gutzy Gear party.  A what I wondered aloud. Enter my tween daughter Ms. M, who immediately said,” say yes please! I’ve wanted to show you the commercial for those”.  Thankfully, I was chosen.
Gutzy Gear

Don’t have a tween talking in your ear about Gutzy Gear? From their website:
 Gutzy Gear is a great, new way to express yourself by customizing your back back, sports duffel, messenger bag, and more! Gutzies are cool looking removable patches. Gutzies stick to a Gutzy strap cover that you put wherever you want to go Gutzy! With 56 Gutzies in a series and new Gutzies constantly being introduced, you can collect and trade a world of Gutzies.
Fast forward to Saturday afternoon.  What do you get when you have a group of tween girls, games, snacks and Gutzy Gear?
A fabulously fun afternoon filled with lots of giggles and bonding. It’s amazing what you can learn about your kids and their friends when you sit back in another room and let them be creative.  The girls loved drawing versions of Gutzy Gear patches. Even though we could have played Gutzy Bingo, or a matching game, the drawing was a hit.
 I got to be the “judge” and pick my favorite drawings to see who got to draw their Gutzy patches from the grab bag first. That was a really fun part for me because I loved seeing how creative and talented they were!
After the drawing was done, the girls ripped into the patches but only after a few trades had been made.  They loved how soft the straps were and all of them commented on helpful they were going to be with their heavy backpacks. If you’ve ever hefted your 4th graders backpack, you know their shoulders could use the T.L.C.

Afterwards I served a light snack and much to the girls surprise 2 hours had past and it was time for them to pack up.  
Here is Ms. M's backpack:

We had a blast at our Gutzy Gear party and would highly recommend them as a fun, creative activity for a sleep-over, birthday party, or play date. And, Moms- Gutzy Gear isn’t just for girls! They have the boys covered too.
