I have this disorder. I think the official name for it is Can’t Resist Putting my Logo and Photos on Stuff-itis. VistaPrint sends me email all of the time with special offers inside, and I have to tell you, most of the time I just delete them unopened because I know this about myself: if I open the email, I will buy.
Well friends, a few weeks ago I did buy. I succumbed to the lure of the personalized project bag. Never mind that I already had a couple that said “Polka Dot Cottage” on them. I decided (now that I both knit and crochet) that it would be super handy to have two different types of bags to hold my in-progress needlework projects: one with a knitted item on the front to hold my knitting projects, and one with a crocheted item on the front to hold my crochet projects.
Now when I look at my two in-progress bags, I don’t have to peek inside to see which is which. That sounds incredibly lazy, doesn’t it?
Maybe I was feeling lazy when I ordered these bags, but I was also feeling generous! I ordered extras of each kind, and I’d like to offer them to four lucky blog readers.
Interested? Just leave a comment on this post, and tell me whether you’d like a knit variety (with the fiesta hats pictured) or a crochet variety (with the small throw pictured). Or, come to think of it, you could also have one of the older generic logo ones, if you like. Your choice! I’ll select the winners at random this weekend.
It’s not much, really, just a little something to say Thank You for dropping by here and hanging out with me so often!
P.S. You don’t need to knit or crochet to use these bags – they’re small totes that can fit all kinds of useful things inside: library books, collected seashells, Halloween candy…
