I love, love, love unique and creative bags! They add flair to any outfit and I just feel happier carrying my stuff in them. With autumn in full swing, it’s the perfect time to add a new one to the mix; the handmade totes from Robin Norgren of Well of Creations
are so precious and perfect!
For this week’s Happy HeART Giveaway, Robin’s offering you one of these two handmade, crocheted totes – the winner gets to choose which one! I just drool over her pieces, especially now that I know the story behind them. Here’s the synopsis she sent to me yesterday:
“Creativity came to my forefront of my life about two years ago when I found myself struggling to adjust to my husband’s deployment with the navy, being a stay at home mom of a toddler and struggling to make ends meet. Feeling lonely and depressed, I began to search for a connection, a spark of hope in my situation. A search for who I was creatively began with a crochet hook and memories from a childhood crochet lesson. What began with scarves culminated into my first acquaintance with inspiration: a dream about a tote. What you see before you is the by product of that dream and my entrance into living more creatively.”
