A Better Life Angel – Win $50 BLB Credit!

Can I just tell you how BIG this thing is getting?  I mean QUICK.  You all are loving your bags and sharing our name and blessing our socks off.

Thought I’d run through a few updates and fun stats and then tie in the title of this post with a way for YOU to get some credit toward a free bag!  Yes.  I said FREE BAG.


  • Last January we sold 40 Better Life Bags (and were ecstatic).  THIS January, we have sold 251 bags SO FAR.
  • Last January I was the only one working for BLB.  THIS January, we have 7 lovely ladies working hard to make your bags.  And you are helping to provide three of them with a dream they never thought could happen: the ability to work and provide for their families.
  • The ONLY states we don’t have a Better Life Bag in is North Dakota, Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire.  Which means we have multiple bags in 46 US states and countries like Sweden, Australia, Malta, and Canada.  Here is a breakdown of where bags went THIS MONTH:

Jan Sales by State

Shop Updates:

  • We are going to be adding some new fabric at the end of March for Spring.  But that means that we will also be retiring some.  Thirty fabrics will be retiring, to be exact.  So if you have a favorite or have been waiting to order, you might think about getting it now BEFORE the new fabric comes.
  • We have a new website in the works!  It’s going to be completely interactive so that you can actually SEE the bag you are going to order and switch out fabrics with a click of the mouse.  But there is a lot of sweat, time, and money involved in the process – so bear with us until it’s done.
  • This may be old news to you Instagram followers, but we have added four new fabrics over the last few months.  Two shades of Chambray, black and white polka dots, and the coveted and popular stripes!

New Fabrics BLB Angel

Working on:

  • A DSLR camera bag!  Woot Woot!  Set to be finished by the middle of February.  I can’t WAIT for this one.  It’s going to be padded beyond belief and have the option to be a cross body bag OR a backpack – with a standard zippered closure.  Exciting, right?
  • Also working on a cross body option for the laptop and iPad sleeve.  Just a simple add-on to make your favorite techie accessory easier to carry.
  • Just ordered swatches for the Men’s Collection we will be launching in April!  Suuuuper stoked about the look of these bags.  I have a feeling women will want to get their hands all over them, too.  Which is totally fine in my book.

And now some info about this FREE BAG I mentioned up top.  There is an anonymous Better Life customer who has multiple bags of her own and wants to extend this luxury to someone out there who hasn’t been able to order a BLB for whatever reason.  Isn’t that awesome?!

BLB Angel_edited-1

She is donating $25 per month this ENTIRE year to give as a credit to one of YOU to buy your first BLB!  I call her the Better Life Angel.  And because I love her heart so much, I’ll match her gift with $25 of my own!

We will give this credit away EVERY. MONTH. on the blog.  Only NEW customers are allowed to enter.  (Don’t worry – we will be starting some fun contests for those of you who have and love a BLB of your own).  All you have to do to enter is leave a blog post comment!

We will draw a winner on February 1st and will send you a $50 credit to the Shop!  Isn’t our Angel amazing??

  • sharla January 29, 2013, 10:49 pm

    I love your bags and what you are doing with your company!

  • Amy January 29, 2013, 10:50 pm

    What a fun contest – and what a generous customer! I’d love one of your bags, but it’s just not in the budget right now. They sure are beautiful, though.

  • Sara Thelen January 29, 2013, 10:51 pm

    I love your bags and the entire concept behind them! How wonderful of your customer to be so generous. I would love the chance to win a credit towards having my very own BLB. :)

    • Sara January 29, 2013, 10:55 pm

      Hey, another Sara. Hi :)

      • Rebecca January 29, 2013, 10:59 pm

        Hey girl! Soooo happy you guys are connecting on here! Totally blesses my heart! Just so you know (and aren’t discouraged when it happens), I’m going to have to delete this comment before I draw a winner so you don’t have 2 entries 😉

        But until then, chat away! What are your middle names? Maybe they are the same, too? Wait – ARE you the same person?! 😉 (just kidding).

  • Jeanette Wummel January 29, 2013, 10:53 pm

    I think your bags are amazing and I have always wanted one. I love that you are giving back with each bag too. I would love to be enter to try to win the $50 credit.

  • Sara January 29, 2013, 10:53 pm

    Aw man, that’s wonderful! Then people much like myself can get these beautiful bags too 😀 I’ve been wanting a better life bag for a year now, but being a poor college student with more loans than life savings… can’t afford one any time soon. Sadface. So yes, Better Life Angel, you are so kind to give $25 every month! 😀

  • Sara January 29, 2013, 10:53 pm

    What a great site and cause, I would love to win this!

  • Courtney Mistofsky January 29, 2013, 10:54 pm

    Holy smokes…I have been wanting a bag since FOREVER!!!! God Bless this Angel!

  • nathania (sophieandmomma) January 29, 2013, 10:54 pm

    Beautiful bags! I am glad that they have their dreams to work and provide for their family :) This is my first time ever hearing about a Better Life bag and thanks for sharing the better bag with others. Thank you for this opportunity. You are spreading the word about the business!

  • Jennifer R. January 29, 2013, 11:09 pm

    How exciting and so sweet! I would LOVE to have one of your beautiful bags, but finances have not allowed for it to happen (yet). I love your Blog, and I love the honesty and sincerity that you put into everything that you post. Thank you and your “Angel” for being so kind and generous. It warms my heart!

  • Melissa A January 29, 2013, 11:10 pm

    Beautiful bags and beautiful purpose! Very generous of the donor!

  • Julie January 29, 2013, 11:10 pm

    Love what you’re doing and your bags!

  • Jennifer January 29, 2013, 11:11 pm

    I can not think of a better company, that makes purses. You are working for The Lord and being able to serve him though others. Helping women feel fulfilled and help their families. I am so proud to even know about this amazing company. I would love a bag to show off to everyone to make your business grow even more. I love the contest helps people like me who can’t afford a bag get a chance.

  • Lorean Stanfield January 29, 2013, 11:13 pm

    I just found your bags through Jessi over at Naptime Diaries and I’m in love! They are gorgeous

  • Bethany Gugliano January 29, 2013, 11:16 pm

    I absolutely love BLBs, BLB’s purpose and the blog! I have not been able to purchase a bag of my own as I am a grad student and my husband is a grad student so finances are tight! But regardless, I still feel like I am able to support the ministry of BLBs by reading the blog and through prayer. I am a social worker and I do a lot of work with immigrants and other women who are the main supporters of their family and I find it extremely exciting to see a faith-based ministry providing opportunties for women to work in this way. What a blessing! Also, it’s so fun to see how much this company is growing!

  • Susie LaBelle January 29, 2013, 11:17 pm

    I love this idea and I love your bags. I haven’t yet bought my first one so I qualify!!

  • Kathy Ward January 29, 2013, 11:21 pm

    Hello, I believe that I’ve ordered a BLB phone wristlet as a gift, but have been unable to afford a handbag for myself. Does that mean at I’m not eligible for this promotion!

  • Ashley January 29, 2013, 11:22 pm

    Love it! My birthday is February 5th and I’ve already told my mom I’m saving up to buy myself a bag! Love what you are doing!

  • Krista January 29, 2013, 11:22 pm

  • Lindsay January 30, 2013, 12:09 am

    What fantastic bags and what a great purpose.

  • Stephanie January 30, 2013, 12:09 am

  • Caroline Jackovich January 30, 2013, 6:46 am

    Ever since Ashley Beam started telling us about BLB I have wanted one. Unfortunately the one I keep drooling over is slightly out of my price range, so this $50 credit would be the best thing ever. I want a BLB!

  • Ashley Ward January 30, 2013, 7:36 am

    I am IN LOVE with these bags but can’t get my hubby to jump on board. I’m 9ish weeks away from having my 3rd baby (3 under 3!) and ohhhh how I’d love to have an Emily bag :) This is a fun idea!

  • Kelly January 30, 2013, 7:55 am

    Hi – Heather raves about your bag. I’d love one, too! :)

  • aundrea king January 30, 2013, 8:01 am

  • cari k. January 30, 2013, 8:51 am

    These bags look so cool! I would love to own one! Thank you! Keep up the great work!

    I’ll sport it in the ALOHA state :)

  • Sue January 30, 2013, 12:16 pm

    Would love to have one of your bags and the credit would certainly help get me one! You are an inspiration!!

  • Jill Helfrich January 30, 2013, 12:24 pm

    Dear Better Life Angel (and Rebecca!) – really? This is awesome! What a cool way to bless others – sharing the love of Jesus by blessing someone with a credit, which blesses even more ladies with an opportunity to have a job. How many women will be blessed by this one act? It’s like dominoes! May I follow suit and think of a neat way to share “domino-effect blessings” with others in my own neck of the woods! :)

  • Kelly January 30, 2013, 12:29 pm

    This is fantastic! And the bags are super cute!

  • Jodene Wylie January 30, 2013, 12:38 pm

    Wow! Congratulations on your accomplishments this year! Thank goodness you have some lovely ladies to help you create these amazing bags. I’m also pleased to see that Canada has made the list of bag-lovers and has purchased from you! (I’m clearly from Canada). If the gift card draw is open to us Canadians too I’d love for you to consider this as my entry. :) congrats and I hope 2013 continues to be great for you!

  • Jamie January 30, 2013, 12:39 pm

    Hi BLB!! I’ve been lusting after a BLB diaper bag and one for work for a while, but I haven’t pulled the trigger yet (silly babies and their expensive needs!). This credit would make supporting your great cause a bit more realistic for me. Either way, I’ve set a goal, and a new BLB will be mine by the end of the year.

  • Candy Shepherd January 30, 2013, 12:43 pm

    I love your bags and I love the idea of your BLB angel kind of paying it forward. Great contest!

  • Jacqui January 30, 2013, 12:57 pm

    So awesome!!! You are so correct this person is an angel! Love all of your bags and your mission! Would love to have a BLB! :)

  • Christine @ grateful for a coffee break January 30, 2013, 1:09 pm

    I’m a wanna-be bag owner!!

  • Susan January 30, 2013, 8:27 pm

    This is a fabulous, selfless give away! I just purchased my first – and not my last – BLB. I am anxiously awaiting its arrival! I am unsure if you allow us to nominate people for this give away, but I am going to give it a try. I would like to nominate my sister Lisa. Her husband passed away two years ago and she has been raising their two kids, while working as a librarian, by herself. I know that there are days that she does not feel like getting out of bed, but she diligently works to support her kids – one who recently started college. They live on a very fixed income. Her husband’s death was unexpected and, therefore, they did not plan financially. I know that many days are a struggle for the three of them but you never hear them complain. She is an avid reader and I would love it if she won this credit to purchase a case or a bag for her books. She is deserving of some grace. Like I said, I don’t know if nominations are accepted, but I needed to try for her anyway. Thank you for the blessing of your company. Susan

  • Chelsea January 30, 2013, 8:28 pm

    WOW! That is absolutely incredible. I’m so in love with your gorgeous bags! I’m hoping I get lots of birthday money in March so I can buy one of my own. It would be perfect for my new camera! Or maybe I’ll win this giveaway to help 😉

  • Ashley January 30, 2013, 8:28 pm

    Your company is amazing and your bags are absolutely gorgeous! I would be so thrilled to win a credit! :)

  • Christina February 1, 2013, 8:59 am

    Love this concept of your business.
    I’m in desperate need of a new bag. I was telling the girls at work about BLB bags the other day and even though I don’t have one (yet) I was selling it like ocean frot property in Arizona 😉
    I would love to buy one soon but I am waiting until affordable.

    God bless you and keep up the good work!

  • Renee "Nay" Soriano February 1, 2013, 11:44 am

    Today I am going to write my What I’m Loving Right Now (“5 Things”) post, right? So I go to Pinterest and don’t see exactly which BLB I want, so I come over here….and what an awesome surprise!!! A $50 credit for new customers?! Are you kidding me!?! Is God good at leading me in the right direction or what?!

    ON my 2013 wish list for myself this year is to buy my own BETTER LIFE BAG – with a polka dot pattern…AND I discovered (yesterday, actually) that my Word of the Year is “Better”….um, HELLO?!

    Oh I do hope I win this credit!!! What a blessing, right?

    Happy Friday, friend:)
    ♥ Nay

  • Cyndi G February 1, 2013, 6:10 pm

    OoOoOhh, what an Angel! My Cyndi bag has been in my shopping cart just waiting for me. I look at it daily just waiting for the day I can move it from the cart and finalize the purchase. One day soon. I believe in paying it forward so I can appreciate your BLB Angel’s heart. Whomever it is will be extremely grateful for the gift of a credit!
