I would give the other bag to my sister. I think she would love it and I am exchanging gifts with her this Christmas in our family exchange.
I never knew I liked monogrammed things until I won a giveaway sponsored by Initial Request. I've never owned anything monogrammed-- I barely knew what it was aside from super expensive towels. Soon I found myself the proud owner of a monogrammed, trendy tote bag! There were my colors:
My name was delicately sprawled in monogrammed cursive in the catchy lime green. The bag arrived at my door smelling SO good-- like new car smell or just cleaned carpets-- and now I want to tell you all about Initial Request!
Initial Request brings you a fantastic selection of monogrammed and personalized gifts, accessories, stationary, home decor and more!
I was thrown into the world of monogrammed sweetness and let me tell you, it brightens up any gift. Just take a peek at what Tanja, owner and Mom of Inital Request, designs:
Fleece Blankets by mint - Hot Pink Zebra $18.00
Tumbler - Giraffe Print $16.00
Tanja is a beautiful artist, Mom, and business owner! I asked her about her biggest joys and challenges of running a small business:
Butterfly Plate $25.00
Whew! Well, I run my operation out of my home...I haveI also asked her to list the five items from her shop she can't live without:
a great shop attached to my garage. LOVE LOVE LOVE working out of my home. I
can run the machines in the middle of the night in my jammies if need be! I
walk to work which saves on gas ...LOL! and I have low overhead! BUT working
from the house also inspires local customers to show up at all hours of the
day or night any day of the week. My biggest challenge is learning to say
"no" or " It's Saturday night...I'm closed." My operation has grown so much
over the past 5 years. I'm amazed and grateful everyday! We work hard to
produce a quality website, provide trendy monograms and gifts and provide a
quick turn around for a truly unique and personal gift giving experience
without having to wait 3 weeks for delivery!
