miss meredith said...

cute giveaway, katie!

my new year's resolution is to not stress about any sort of bettering of myself. it's too much pressure and it's always a bummer.

frankie would like to see some of those cute dog harnesses you made for frances in the shop this year! he would like some manly colors like orange & brown & plaid.

Michelle said...

how sweet of you! i love your bags... the tough ruffles always make me smile. my new year's resolution is to be a nicer person. and maybe eat fewer french fries. :)

Villa Design said...

suswins said...

Great giveaway!! I love all your stuff, especially your new geometric totes! The only resolution I made for myself this year was to finally embrace change in my life and make it happen!

saidthejoker said...

I hope to see more extra-wide bags in your shop this year (in hopes of getting one for my laptop). Thanks for the giveaway!

The Warrior and the Mouse said...

jessicajane.love at yahoo dot com

Jeannie said...

Love, love your work. I wish you could exhibit in a Bay Area gallery because I would be SO there! Happy New Year :) from Jeannie (jeannie.pham@gmail.com)

holly p said...

I adore your bags and these zipper pouches are no exceptio! They're wonderful! Thank you so much for the giveaway.

thedemuremuse.com said...

Katie, you are amazing for hosting such a lovely giveaway!!

one of my new year's resolutions is to take better care of myself. towards the end of 2010, i started to get overwhelmed with work and didn't find work-life balance at all. i ended up forgetting to eat meals (i'd maybe eat a meal and a half a day) because i became so consumed in my work. by the time Christmas rolled around, i had lost quite a bit of weight, was constantly tired and no longer had much motivation to keep up with work.

starting on january 1, 2011, i have started to plan meals early, making sure that i make time to eat properly. i've also started going to the gym regularly to take better care of my body. as a recovering mcdonald's addict (haha, i used to eat this stuff 3 times a week!), i'm trying to cut down to once a month. so far so good!

thedemuremuse(at)gmail(dot)com

Lien said...

This is so awesome of you! I'd love to see more clutches in your shop. They're the perfect size for all the essentials without being too bulky or small.

As for resolutions, mine is to learn JavaScript (this is going to be a toughy for me).

Thanks for such a great giveaway!

(my email is in my profile).

Scarlet said...

These are beautiful, Katie! I've been following you for a while here and though I don't have a big collection, I love, love my small crossbody bag (with the beautiful crochet doily!).

I would love to see more small shoulder/crossbody bags, and also the vintage appliques you do so beautifully (like in zipper purses 2 & 7).

I also really appreciate the new styles you do and the glimpses we get of your stitched drawings, because your creativity and talent is utterly amazing!

Kari said...

how fun! i am in love with all of your ruffled things - and would love to learn that technique :) my new year's "resolution" is to apply to med school this year - which is months away but already making me crazy! :)

rachel elizabeth said...

my resolution for 2011 is to finally be able to quit my job to become a full time photographer. its still so scary to think of spending my days away from my office and doing something that i love so much <3

Anh said...

Katie, you have been one of my absolute favorite crafters/online sellers for a few years now. Keep on being awesome!

Karen Barbé said...

You are so kind Katie!
You should know I LOVE your hangtags! I like how unique they are.
Have a great 2011!

Lillian Chang said...

Oh, this is just SO exciting!! :) I have been wanting one of your sewn goods for sooo long now, but every time I go to buy one, they're mostly sold! :) You are so loved by the online community :)

My new year's resolution is to be more present and to live fully and to much higher standards for myself :)

Attic Charm said...

Hi Katie! Well I feel a little guilty for entering your giveaway as I am fortunate enough to have several of your amazing creations, however, I find my hank appetite only increases with time - so I hereby shamelessly enter your sweet giveaway.

My dog's name is Gracie, which is odd because she is often grace-less... running into walls, patio doors, legs, pretty much anything that's between her and the place she is headed with much haste. And every time it happens she looks at us like it was our fault :)
♥Laura

emily.marie said...

can I just say that I think your work is spectacular? a great design sense is something many aspire to, but few have, so thanks for sharing!

and I can't not mention that I have a Westie named Nigel, because he is just the cutest.

Damaris said...

oh man, I love madebyhank! i would love to see more handbags and interesting color combinations.

This Little Daisy said...

I love these purses...they are all so cute. We adopted our little kitten from the humane society around St. Patty's Day last year. His litter was given all Irish names...so our little guy is Owen and oh so cute :) Thanks for a fun 2011 giveaway!

Sue said...

I just found out about your purses from the Farm Chicks blog. I love them! My resolutions are: to shed the extra 20 lbs (always), not to take myself so seriously, and to spend more time with my family and friends and to let them know how much I appreciate them.

elise blaha said...

so fun! I have one of your little clutches and have my eye on the new triangle ones. Would love to win!

kristina said...

Hello Katie, I just wanted to wish you a happy new year! I bought a couple of your bags right before you were the featured seller on Etsy---use some of them all the time to this day!

I have al my fingers and toes crossed and wil keep them that way until this giveaway is over.

My resolution is to stop getting beads stuck under the keys of my keyboard on my laptop so that the letter "L" wil show up more than once.

leslierouth said...

My resolution is to win a Made by Hank Giveaway!
Thanks!!!

jamiesonbarkett said...

Eleven Things, for Twenty-Eleven :)
1. I didn't make a new years resolution, because I always end up forgetting it by the end of the first week!
2. I have two rabbits, Thumper and Cotton. Thumper used to be sweet, but he has learned how to hop on the couch to beg for food. Cotton used to be a rascal, but he has gone all soft.
3. I miss the appliqued purses from waaaaaay back at the beginning when I first hearted your Etsy shop (kinda like zipper pouch 7 or like this: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/12397159) -- Not to say I don't love love love the three bags I have! BUT I vote to bring back the applique for a bit :)
4. I bought zipper pouches for my sister and sister-in-law for Christmas, and they loved them! (although I was kinda hoping they wouldn't, even though I knew they would, but if they didn't, then I could have kept them...)
5. Everytime my good friend compliments me on my new bag... It's a made by hank bag! I told her she need to stalk your shop.
6. I love the way you photograph your bags -- having a consistent style is key.
7. I really don't want to go work on report cards right now (sorry, that is totally random)
8. Also, I like the couple purses you did with the stitch-pictures of rabbits and such. Those were lovely. Wish I could have snagged one of those...
9. Gosh, I think I ran out of things to say.
10. Umm...
11. Oh yeah! I hope I win, 'cause my birthday is the last day to enter... January 21st! And that would be a perfect birthday present!

Miss. O said...

how wonderfully nice! i love your work :)
my dog is named Boo and she is currently running around outside with her doggy friends. my resolution is to get in shape and to learn to quilt. fun!

Mystial Batwoman said...

My doggie is Kaiser. He makes a great accessory but I think your purses would be better :)

Rachel said...

I'd love to see some larger (maybe even oversized!) tough ruffles bags in spring colors (pinks, light blues, purples). I remember you made a handful of these back in mid April of last year and they sold so quickly.

Thanks for holding a giveaway! :)

Darla said...

Olivia needs a new bag! She loves Madebyhank!

justpeachykeen said...

Oh my those purses are quite lovely, I really do hope I win one. I have a 6 month old Chi-poo named Grizzly. My boyfriend says he has UGG boots on, because his paws have so much crinkly fur. He has a toothy, under-bite kind of a smile, and I love him!

Everything you do is fantastic, and I always dream of owning a madebyhank. Once my financial situation improves, I will surely buy a shoulder bag!

Jill said...

My resolution is to use re-usable bags for grocery shopping. So far, so good! Maybe I'll have to get a nice Madebyhank tote for shopping :-)

woolandthebear said...

dang katie!
such an awesome and generous giveaway you're having! thank you!

i have to say... i really love what you're doing with the repurposed leather these days. the new bags are totally awesome!

and... as for my 2011 resolution... i'm going to focus on me this year at work... no more defending myself to others. i'm going to do what i want... and continue being the good teacher that i am.

happy new year katie! i hope you are well...

Woohoo! What a fabulous giveaway and thank YOU for being so awesome! I don't have any pets right now (just two small children who sometimes act like little animals/beasts), but when I was little, I had a beautiful sheltie dog named Max, and a goldfish named Fanny.
I would love to see more of the smaller tough ruffle bags with the long straps that can be worn across the body. And your vintage creation are also very coveted. And well, anything you create is pretty darn gorgeous!

brooke @ claremont road said...

Yay for giveaways! I'm not big on New Year's resolutions (because I always forget about them), but I HAVE been trying to adopt better eating and exercise habits since after Christmas. I think it was the Christmas dinner turkey-hangover that did me in. Surprisingly, I'm on week 3 of attending a great aerobics class (did you know Jazzercise is still around? It totally is, and it's awesome), and I actually look forward to going several times a week. This is big for me. So far, 2011 is feeling good!

Lorelei Eurto said...

My New Year's Resolution(s) are yet to be determined. When there are gazillions of areas where I want to improve myself, it's hard to choose just a few so as not to be overwhelmed. Anyway - it's all about improvement and I'm always ready to find ways to better myself. ;)

This is really neat!

I don't have any pets, but if I did, I would have a cat, and I would name him (or her!) Han Solo. Because he's the best character in Star Wars!

Keep being awesome Katie!!

Sarah said...

I love your purses, they're totally adorable and I would love to keep my plastic elephant in one because elephants are awesome too and that would just be double awesome.

My cat is called Hardy. His brother was Laurel. Ha ha. :) I also have a cockatiel called Harry. He's pretty noisy.

All the best for 2011, I look forward to following your blog and seeing what you get up to!

Kalyn said...

Immense talent I must say! I get so excited watching your work grow. I would love to see you dabble in the apparel realm. Oh and my New Years resolution is to get back in contact with someone I have lost contact with, reconnecting once a week. Keep doing what you do, I just love your work.

I love your purses and was able to buy one a long time ago..I would love to own another. They are a piece of art and I am proud to wear mine. I would love to see some big tough ruffle bags..and maybe even a diaper bag :) I have two little terriers named Baxter and Mojo that I adore and they love madebyhank too :)

vintagedesignxo said...

Your shop is one of my favorite shops of all time, hands down. Your zipper purses are just amazing & no one can top the lavish ruffles/designs & what not. I hope to see more aqua colors for the spring/summer time! Suuuper stoked!

New Years Resolution:
Try & be positive with everything, because negativity is just a downer.

Lara said...

I resolved to live my life based on my two favorite quotes:

"...if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
~Henry David Thoreau

"The stotan must be willing to stand on his own, to resist pain, to stick to his ideals. A stotan is quietly self-sufficient. He accepts the challenges of training, injuries, races, and disappointments without complaining, because he understands that simply by keeping on, by sticking to the path he has chosen, he will get stronger and better."
~ Amby Burfoot
