I am a creative soul. One of the things I love about my web design work is the opportunity to unleash my creative side. Of course a lot of design work includes a coding aspect but then luckily I’m a coding geek too. So it is unsurprising that my love of creativity carries over into my choice of accessories too. Of course I love a good handbag but I also love personalized tote bags and illustrated ones too. It’s a way of showing the world that I am a creative soul in a subtle and almost understated way. I’d love to design my own tote bags and there are loads of sites out there that allow you to do so. I am not a natural illustrator though so for the time being i’ll let other creative souls do the hard work for me. Etsy (as you know) is one of my favorite places online to pick up unique, one of a kind pieces. There are some truly great artists on there, producing some beautiful tote bags at reasonable prices. The items below are all items that I love for their beauty and unique design. I hope that you’ll love them too. They demonstrate a creative nature and are all using different illustration styles .
