fernfiddlehead MacBook Envelope Review and Giveaway

*This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering!*

Looking for a stylish way to keep your MacBook protected from spills and other mishaps when it's not in use? If so, then you need to check out the beautiful designs in laptop envelopes offered by the Etsy shop fernfiddlehead, owned by Cathy Moore. Priced at only $29.00, not only are these envelopes stylish, they are also affordable.



Posted on the main page of the fernfiddlehead shop is this statement: Part of my mission is to make well constructed, unique products -- not the same thing in the same fabric over and over and over. That way you have something that's truly special!

Just take a look at the variety of designs offered by fernfiddlehead, and you will agree with me that she has achieved that mission. Further proof for me was in the envelope that Cathy sent to me to review. I found the envelope to be well-made, with reinforced stitching and a sufficient amount of padding in order to provide for more-than-adequate protection. I especially love the envelope design; the way the envelope closes with hemp string twisted around two buttons is the perfect touch!



I asked Cathy a few questions in order for us to get to know her a bit better:

1. Tell us a little about yourself. My name is Cathy Moore. I live in Brooklyn, New York although I grew up on a farm in Upstate New York. I love the city and the country.

2. What is your business and where can we find it?
My business is called fernfiddlehead and you can find me on etsy at: http://fernfiddlehead.etsy.com

3. Where else can people find you?
People can also find me on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fernfiddlehead/

Thanks for taking the time to answer, Cathy!

Do you know someone who would love to have one of these great MacBook envelopes? How about you? If so, then head on over to fernfiddlehead and get shopping!
