Show and Tell Monday at Make Mine Pink!!

I just wanted to share with you a tote bag that my loving Mother made for me. She took my business card and used that design for the front of the bag. The inside of the bag has several pockets and this wonderful message to me. She also put some pockets on the outside back of the bag. I really am proud of it and will be taking it to Williamsburg with me in September.

Thanks Mom, Inka
