Simply Bags

Pardon me while I start this post by screaming

IT’S SNOWING!!!!

 

Apologies to those of you who have been stuck in snowdrifts for weeks, but for the rest of us who got gypped out of a real snow this winter, let’s do the happy dance!

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming (done with the screaming bit, sorry)

 

A couple of weeks ago, a business owner contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out a personalized tote.  They offer embroidered bags in all kinds of sizes and colors.

I was shocked at the speedy service of Simply-Bags.

Well, speedy after I figured out how to personalize it - it was fun imagining all the ways gifts could be made for family and friends!  I wish I’d known about their diaper bags a few years ago!

When I opened up the package, I was stunned by how big this mother of a tote is!

It meets my first rule – a zippered main compartment (anyone else had your toddler unceremoniously dump your purse upside down in the grocery store.  No?  Nevermind).  And my second rule: durable.  This baby is fully lined with a water-resistant fabric (not like us moms ever deal with liquid container malfunctions, right?)  Plus an exterior stashaway across the front!

And the best part – whatever you want, written in whatever color you like!

Kinda-sorta a dream company for a control-freak, no? :)

I hope you’ll head on over to find something you like… the service was unbeatable and I’m super happy with their product!

(This was a wee bit belated – totally my fault.  It was a “slightly” rough week with that whole I’m dying of a toothache dental work drama.  Thanks to the store owner for being gracious while I recovered!)

Disclaimer:  I received the pictured personalized tote bag from the vendor.  My review is my own, and if I hadn’t liked it, y’all know I would have told ya.  Thanks to Simply Bags for their generosity!

Say... could you fill it with snow and use it on trips to the grocery store? Just wondering...

Oh...and as one of those that has been buried by the snow....I'm doing the happy dance that the white stuff is falling on your coast and not mine!!

Cute bag. I love how you chose to monogram it!

Ooooooo, I love me a good bag! And containers, but I think they kinda fall into the same category.

So that is on its way down to TX right?

I love big bags in theory but never carry them. I figure if I can't find anything in my small bag I would forever be lost with a big one lol. I do like it though and I love when you can personalize something!!

Goodness, you want snow? Icy and I would gladly send you some. We are yearning for flowers and fair weather.

The idea of bags designed the way we want it pretty cool, but I have a sewing machine and love to personalize my things.

Tiffany said...

That is an awesome bag! And feel free to send the snow our way!

I am glad you are happy for snow. I sort of hope we are all done with it for a while now : ) You know...like until December 2011. Or something like that!

Cool bag! I love tote bags.

Congratulations on finally getting some snow. Want more?? I'll let you have some of the snow over here, but you have to take the cold, cold weather along with it! ;)

Cute bag, too. Love the personalization.

I'm dancing with you about the snow! I've been waiting so long for it. It doesn't feel like winter unless we've had at least a day of snow. Now that it has come... it can go away again!

I won a bag like that a couple years ago. They monogrammed and sent so fast I was amazed. I like what you choose to have monogrammed--- the "believe".
