Jo Totes Giveaway

Hello friends!  How was your weekend?  If you're suffering from the "back to the grind" Monday blues, maybe this Jo Totes giveaway will help lift your spirits - and just in time for Christmas.

Are you sick of lugging around your bulky camera bag and purse?  As our newest sponsor, Jo Totes is giving away one of their new, sleek Betsy camera bags.  Ugly camera bag no more!


Jo Totes provides ladylike bags for women to safely carry their cameras (and a lens or two) on a daily basis, whether you're going to a photo shoot or simply traveling around.

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
.


To enter this giveaway, I ask that you be a follower of this blog…thanks.

Entries: (leave a comment for each)

1)  Leave a comment telling me how badly you need to retire your old camera bag or if you'd be giving the bag as a Christmas gift.

2)  Become a fan of Jo Totes on Facebook, or a Twitter follower.

3)  Become a fan of Natty by Design on Facebook.

4) Tweet and/or Facebook about this fab Jo Totes giveaway and link it back to this post.

Giveaway will end this Thursday the 29th.  Good luck!

  1. I never thought about the way my camera bag looked or its practicality until I took a recent trip to Chicago and was annoyed at having to carry the backpack style bag and my purse everywhere. I started looking into this king of camera bag and fell in love with them!

  2. I love these bags! The bag I currently have is very worn out, so this would be a great new replacement! Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Since I don't have an awesome camera (yet) I'd probably give the bag to my sister-in-law. She would love it!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I don't even have an old camera bag to dislike! I just stick it in my purse and hope it survives :)

  9. I actually don't even have a camera bag for my Canon Rebel and as a result I'm always too afraid to leave the house with it. It would be such a joy to have a camera bag to safely take it with me--and a real treat to have one this stunningly beautiful!

  53. I NEED THIS BAG! Last weekend I took a trip to California and didn't have anything to put my nice DSL Nikon camera in, so I put it in my purse with my extra lense. By the time I got off the plane my "cookie I saved for later" was smooshed all on my camera. This was a sad day for both my camera that still has chocolate chips stuck in it that I can't get out, and for my sweet tooth. I would LOVE to have a bag made just for my camera and all its glory!

  63. Ok I see that 80 other people have already left the comments as to why they want this camera bag! So I am not sure mine will win, but I am going to give it my best shot! I just recently bought a top of the line camera for my own personal use. I am trying to get better about taking pictures of my children to capture those memories. My camera bag is black, bulky & boring! I would love to carry around a fashionable bag and that way people would think I know what I am doing when I am really just learning. PLEASE PICK ME!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Love these! I currently don't use a bag for my camera...which is probably horrible to have it strapped over my shoulder all the time. This would be lovely to win!

    ReplyDelete
  65. These bags are amazing! I outgrew the camera bag that came with my Nikon. It barely holds an extra lens, and I can't even bring any of my lens filters. I got a new bag a year ago...but apparently I am allergic to the strap. So a new bag that I could take with me (and be discrete about the contents of it) would be fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Since my current camera bag is a plastic grocery bag (classy, eh!), I would LOVE to win this bag!!!! So stylish!

    ReplyDelete
  67. considering i dont have a camera bag... i would love love love this!

  68. I need this adorable bag to take pics of my 3 kids under 3! No hands for my camera while juggling my twins. PLease pick me!

  71. I just got a new camera 2 days ago and the bag it came with is just not cute - very ugly! I love these bags, I would love to have one. I also follow you on facebook. carmen(dot)goddard(at) yahoo.com

  72. I need one because I've never had a cute one - this would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would love to win this bag. My camera is getting fixed at the moment so after having to pay to get it fixed, a nice new free bag would be perfect.

  79. As much as I love my DSLR I don't love carrying it in my purse. I do have a camera backpack, but that bag is SO much cuter.

    ReplyDelete
  80. That bag is sweet! I would love to have one and would use it all the time. I am just learning to use my Canon and Adobe photoshop. Sweet giveaway!

  81. The bag is beyond perfect. I would be giving this bag to my daughter who has just gotten her first camera. thanks for the fun!

  82. OK, what a great bag! I desperately need this. We have three active kids and all too often I am without my camera at key moments because I didn't want to lug my big old camera bag and my big old purse. I never put my camera in my purse because I have a toddler and all my purses are full of crumbs.... no kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  83. What a cute camera bag! I've been using a Canon bag that is very functional, but also verrrry bulky. Not to mention it's a little hard on the eyes...

    ReplyDelete
  84. I hate how reluctant I am to bring my camera out and about with me because of the bag. It is the bag that came with the camera and its clunky and awkward. This beautiful bag will help me to get out there and snap more pics!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I would love to have a prettier camera bag that was more of a reflection of me. I now just have the green one that comes with every Canon camera....functional but not pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I love Jo Totes and got my first one as a Christmas gift last year - it's amazing! Love this new style.

Please....I want to win. Chelo

  100. I need this bag! I have a nice camera that I just haul around with no bag. It isn't safe or convenient. This sure would make my day. Love the idea of Jo Totes and it's cute to boot!

  134. That is just too cute!! My best friend is a self taught photographer. Between being a mom, wife, teacher, house cleaner, a chef, a chauffeur, dog runner, and she has a part time job she gets spread pretty thin...as we all do. But she has in the last couple of years really taught herself so much. She has amazed me with some of her pictures. Anyways with all the responsibilities she has slowly put together her camera and is still working on it piece by piece. And I would LOVE to bless her with something like that for Christmas.

I am just a girl who just started my own buisness, and my camera doesn't like to eat cookies that are stuck in my purse. :) The first thing I do in the mornings is look at your blog for inspiration (have ever since I found you through a c.l post), and now read my compitition's comments. :) My camera really needs this bag and will thank you for it!

  151. I LOVE Jo Totes. I have been wanting one for a few years now. I loved their old red tote looking bags. I think The Betsy is just as cute. That is my Mom's name, so I know it will be great, just like her. I would definitely keep it b/c it would be too hard to give away. Especially since I have my camera with me all the time and it would be great to conceal it while traveling.
