I love surprises !

This morning when my doorbell rang I saw the postman with some mail and a parcel. I was quite surprised to see the parcel was for me; it's my mother who is forever ordering clothes, which I then have to return when they don't fit or aren't suitable.

When I looked it was addresses to me! Then when I opened the parcel I found it was a gift, of two customized tote bags, from Sam. She has used significant dates and family names to create the logo on the bag. It is a really novel idea from The Craft Pantry and I love these bags. Now that I no longer use plastic bags I am getting a wonderful collection of tote bags to use instead.
These are really strong canvass bags and they are eco friendly.

Thank you very much Sam, now I need to go shopping to use them! xxxx

Personalized bags are fun. I have a huge library bag. Enjoy. Nice of Sam to send them to you! :))

Glad you liked them! I have a Breach-Schmidt one and I love it too. All my girlfriends have one too.

PS - I hope Beccy already got hers too, else the surprise will be spoiled.

Awesome! I love my canvas bags for grocery shopping. They hold so much more than the plastic ones did.

Molly I keep a lot in my car so I always have them handy-mind I have on occasion still forgotten to take them in the store!

CC I still love using the one you gave me x

the thing with these bags is that they actually look 100 times better in real life than they do in the photos (I don't mean your photos mum - I mean the website photos). You aren't prepared for how big and strong they are.

sam I probably could have taken a better photo. They are actually much stronger than the cotton bags I've got.
