Where Do Tote Bags Come From? 45 New Totally Spectacular Tote Bags at Zazzle

Some days, you tote the bag 👜 Some days, the bag totes you: 

I got a tote-ally unexpected surprise when I woke up the other day and discovered someone purchased 45 tote bags from my Zazzle shop. HOE.LEE.KOW. 🐮 

Needless to say, I tote-ally toted the bag that day. 👜

Tote-ally needful to say, though, is the biggest THANK YOU to the anonymous buyer for making this the largest tote bag order, and amount spent, in my shop ever; and for tote-ally making my jaw drop from the awesome shock! 😲

While I only design the tote bags from the comfort of my home, the real work of production and manufacturing occurs thousands of miles away from me on the opposite side of America, in Hendersonville, North Carolina, by a company that's been in business since 1932: Manual Woodworkers & Weavers. How awesome is that? Tote-ally awesome. 🎈

And it's Zazzle, in California, who serves as the hub that serendipitously brings us all together online for the sake of e-commerce around the world, which benefits me in Washington State, people in North Carolina, people in California, and everyone in between who becomes part of the process; all thanks to the buyer. 🎉

T H A N K   Y O U,   B U Y E R ! 💜 💛 💚

The occasion was so momentous that it inspired me to add more bags to my Zazzle shop. I didn't start out with the intention to add 45 new bags, but once I got up to 29 I figured why not go for it; so I went for it and wound up with 45 brand new totes to match the 45 that were sold. 😵

The tote bags that were purchased feature two designs of the Snellen eye chart. You know when you go to the eye doctor, that thing you read out loud with one eye covered for visual acuity, usually with a big E at the top; that was developed in 1862 and named after Dutch ophthalmologist Herman Snellen? You know, that thing. 👀

Even though there were only two designs on the bags that sold, the bags were ordered with different background colors. So, rather than create entirely new designs, I simply added 15 more color options for each of the two designs along with 15 bags toting a brand new design. 🎨

The first tote bag design is the classic Snellen eye chart; the second design is the eye chart with a cat-eye glasses background; and the brand new third design is a spectacular collage of cat-eye glasses with the back design turned 90 degrees. 👜

All tote bags feature the same design on both sides, making them doubly awesome; they are also available in multiple sizes and styles, and can only be found in my Prose & Pix gift shop at Zazzle. Scroll to the end to see all 45 tote bags ~ ThxXox! 🌈


  1. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips and hints for first-time blog writers?
    I'd definitely appreciate it.
