{snuggle time embroidery} review + giveaway

I'm so excited to share Snuggle Time Embroidery with you all!! Mandi (the shop owner) asked me to review a few of her products - and, wow - I was really impressed with what came in the mail. I received this tote bag complete with personalization. :) There is no charge for personalization at Snuggle Time Embroidery - and there is also no charge for shipping within the US! :) Let me tell you, this bag is huge - and the canvas fabric is nice and sturdy, so I know I am going to get a lot of use out of this!

The bag includes a velcro-closure (which I really like, easier than a snap or zipper), a large pocket in the front (below the name), and an attached key fob clip. I chose the Kingston font for my name and brown thread to match the bag. I plan on using this tote for lugging all my "loot" to and from school, so having my name on it distinguishes it from all of the other teachers' bags.

And just look at what I was able to fit in this monster-of-a-tote (with room to spare!): 2 beach towels, 2 large water bottles, and some magazines! So, before school starts this August, this tote will be taking a trip to the beach :)


Mandi also sent me one of her key fob/wristlets! I immediately put my school keys on it when I got it! I chose the bright, turquoise color along with my last name in black (in the Tirol font). I have been known to loose my keys and have to ask around if anyone had seen them, well - I figured that if my last name was on my keys, then I wouldn't have to ask! :) Also, I love how I can put this on my wrist. I can be carrying a bunch of stuff in my arm, but still be able to get to my keys to open a door.


And, I can clip it onto the tote thanks to the built-in-clip! :)


Mandi was so great to work with - and she offers high quality products! Snuggle Time Embroidery also offers a wide variety of peresonalized, baby items; perfect for gifting! Also, Mandi just opened up a new online shop! Kiwi Embroidery offers more non-baby items.

  95. Hi Mandi--you have awesome things for personalization! hard to add to what you have but what about a tote bag exclusively for diapers or to hand off in a church nursery--it could hold a diaper change, lovie, a snack, and a sippy cup/bottle--then no one would get confused in nursery about who's it was! (can you tell i work in a disorganized nursery?)
