    wow.. that is such a gorgeouz purple. I’ve been very happy with all the new colors this year, my fave being cracked pistachio, hickory smoke, ground espresso and of course, blueprint sketch! i was hoping there will be one royal blue in the distress ink family, so thank you very much, Tim! Now, for the remaining 3 colors, I really, really hope there’ll be WHITE among them. I mean, of all those beautiful colors, there’s bound to be a very nice white to balance ’em all, right? ^___^

    I think that you should continue with new colors once per month even after this year. It is so fun to look forward to and makes buying them affordable.

    A new bag is so exciting. I have the tote covered with numbers from several years ago’s line. I get great comments every time I use it and I still love it. I’m sure this bag is just as wonderful.
