Bonzai + Novica New Years Giveaway

December 30th, 2009 - filed under: Furthermore


I’m so happy to announce our first giveaway, just in time to kick off a new decade! When Novica approached me about sponsoring the site, I thought, ‘what better way than to pass on the goodies to you guys’!? So here it is, in the form of three free handbags to three lucky readers!


Novica is an online international marketplace of sorts, and functions in association with National Geographic to allow artisans from around the globe to hock their wares worldwide. You can read more about their mission, here.


Each of the bags pictured in this post will be given away on New Years day! All you have to do to enter the drawing is to leave a comment on this post. Feel free to request the color you’d prefer, though I can’t guarantee that you’ll get that one if you win. And why not poke around Novica’s site to check out their awesome unique handbags, slings, and totes.

You guys are awesome! Happy New Year!!!

    Ah! So cool! I’m so excited you are sponsoring this site! I’ve loved it for a while! I’d request blue or stripy if I won, but dude, very fun! How sweet of you to pass it on too! ;-)

    This is exactly the type of site that I’ve been looking for. Thanks for the post!

  • Nikki

    Happy New Year! I think they are all amazing!

  • Laura

    Oh yes, I did poke around Novica’s site and it was awesome. It gave me inspiration to start making my own bags again, though i bought one just a few days ago :D

    But these colorful totes are soooo beautiful!

  • Kelly

    Look at this response! Awesome. :o)

    The bags are beautiful…and I love your necklaces too. Cheers!

  • Eden

    All the bags are terribly cute!

    As an aside, I love that Novica carries elephant art as well. I’ve always found that to be so fascinating!

    Thanks for the post, Sayward!

  • Rebecca

    How cute!!! I love bags! ;0) The brown one is my fav, but they are all so cute!

    Came across your site by way of Tipnut and have really enjoyed your insight. You remind me of me in my twenties! LOL

    “Worry Less” is a great thing to have on your list. It will all be good in the end, and if it’s not good, it’s not the end. ;)

    Happy NEW YEAR!!!!

    Oh my gosh! Those bags are so pretty! I can’t even pick a favorite!

  • Lisa

    I finished the master cleanse a few days ago! Your website definitely inspired me to finally make the jump :) The brown bag would be the perfect way to commemorate a new year, a new perspective on food, and a new outlook on life.

  • Callie

    I’m with Nathan on this one, I like the brown best.

  • Jill

    I have no bag. I only have pockets and sometimes I don’t even have that. I hope I win!

  • Amy

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and I’m absolutely enamoured with it! Beautiful bags! I can only hope to win one.
