CafePress ~ review & giveaway

 One of my many clothing-related weaknesses is bags.  Small clutches, diaper bags, totes; you name it, I like it.  I’m picky though, and don’t want the same bag that everyone else picked up at the mall this season, and as a stay at home mom, I need to watch the budget too.  This is where CafePress comes in!

CafePress has a wide variety of unique and personalized gifts for everyone!  From sports teams to television shows to your favourite animal, there is something for even the hardest person on your shopping list.  A huge bonus is that they ship to Canada!  For review, I chose the uRban Junque aRt Tote Bag, which was designed by Rhonna Farrer (she’s a big name in scrapbooking and I love her stuff!).  I wanted a bag that was big enough to fit whatever I’d need for an afternoon out with my toddler, but that was still easy to carry.  As you can see, their totes are very generously sized!  There is lots of room, but it’s still easy to find whatever you’ve packed.

I really appreciate how long the straps are, so that I can easily carry it on my shoulder without it slipping off or digging in.  The bottom is also nice and wide, so it stands up by itself.  This makes it so much easier for me to find the all-important snacks that always seem to fall to the bottom of any bag that I pack.

Here’s my bag.  As you can see, I’ve got a ton of stuff in there and it’s only half full!  There is a beach towel, baby swimsuit, swim diaper, wet bag, cloth diaper (Happy Heiny, in case you’re wondering), pack of wipes, change pad, snack cup AND my clutch.  This would be a perfect beach bag for the rest of the summer, but it’s definitely cute and functional enough that I’m not packing it away with our sandals at the end of the season!

    I’d probably get one of the designs about adopting shelter dogs :)
