And, the winner is ...

Today is going to be a GREAT day, and not just because all 211 of you will find out who wins the magical Faith bag, but because my 4-day long headache has finally subsided. Perhaps now some stuff will be accomplished around here.

Before I announce the winner, I want to tell you a little about Eve. I met her by phone a few months ago when I was writing stories about stay-at-home moms who have reentered the workforce. The basic storyline was that staying at home gives you more management skills than you might think. It's all in how you look at the jobs you do all day.

Enter Eve. A stay-at-home mom who started making some handbags for fun, and then realized that she had talent and a business idea. She has since been customizing these great bags from her home, all while caring for her daughter. She also has been hiring other stay-at-home moms to work as consultants and such. It's just a great story of a mom using motherhood to maximize her own potential. I, too, adore her bags. But, it's her story that I wanted to share.

Maeva Design allows you to customize the bag that you want and it will then be handmade either by Eve herself or another seamstress who most likely works from home as well.

For her to pick the Faith bag is perfect. All moms are trying to find a way to balance faith in themselves, faith in their children and faith in the world that sustains us.

For many others, it could also be faith in God. This bag will be very appropriate for our winner. Go meet her here.

As for the rest of you, please consider Maeva Design as a gift to yourselves. Eve is offering all of you 10 percent off your purchase for the next two weeks. Just e-mail her and tell her you learned about her through this site and want to save 10 percent. Go ahead, splurge. Clearly, all of you need a new handbag. Just read through the comments about why and you'll see it plain as day.
