    I absolutely love your tote organizer. Now, I’m suppose to say how I would use it but there are so many things that I would love to have this to “tote” around in. Like you, I need at least two and maybe more. I thnk that I would use this one to carry the things I use the most. Scissors, pencils, colored markers, my use for everything paint brushes and tape… different kinds of tape. All the things that are needed to have in one place at any time. Great organizer with lots of pockets. Love it. <3

I am a subscriber too and am just amazed at what you do with the flowers. I also arrange flowers for our church so really love to see what magnificance you create. I love the polka dotty and would put scissors, tape, wire, clippers, etc. I just showed my granddaughters the mod lodge watering cans and I am going to order some today for us to make.

    Every time that I receive an email ‘Home is Where the Boat Is’, I get happy flutters because I know that there’s something beautiful and uplifting in that link. I have always wanted to be good with flowers so I would use the tote for the tools to begin the flower arranging learning process. I love the tan tote and would put it to good use. Thank you for doing things like this and putting positive thoughts and feelings ‘out there’. And the links to the tools are very helpful, too!

    Hi there! I subscribe to your blog and thoroughly enjoy it. I am currently working on a cookbook called Sit, Stay, Eat which includes recipes for humans and their furry friends. I’m hoping to have it published in the fall of this year to be sold on Amazon and my online store. I am including pet related topics, tablescapes and floral arrangements and would use this tote to help keep me organized and help me to create beautiful florals for the book. I have a blog called Two Adorable Labs and am partnering with Joey’s PAW, a non profit that raises money for pets in need of wheelchairs and prosthetics and a portion of the profits from this cookbook will go to this charity.

  31. July 14, 2020 at 7:32 am

    Mary, this is a beautiful tote bag! I would use it to keep all my painting supplies, watercolors, trays, brushes, water color paper, etc. With extra time on my hands, thanks to the pandemic, I have returned to my true love, fine art, I work part time as a Graphic designer. To keep in touch with my grand children I have started “painting with Gaga” via FaceTime every Tuesday. Anna and Eli love it! This tote would indeed help to keep everything together! I love the tan polka dot tote. I must tell you that your blog always puts a smile on my face, and inspires me to try something new, be it flower arranging, flower tips, place setting ideas, recipes and many more. It’s great to start my day with good news, the New York Times can wait!
    I am an email subscriber to your blog. I love the arrangement with the flowers and the seashells.

    What a wonderful bag for organization!! I would use mine for organizing all of the supplies I take to the Bible Study I facilitate each week (when we are not quarantined!).

    I have truly enjoyed your website and your amazing and beautiful ideas that make so much sense. I’ve used a lot of your suggestions throughout the year with such success. I have in mind a couple of ideas how I could use the tote that would be handy.In the summer, I have morning outdoor chores, it could hold the fish food, suet packs for the birds, scissors, latex gloves, garden tools and plant food to name a few. Or, it could serve as a great tote to hold my golf paraphernalia, golf balls, tees, towels, gloves, visors etc as an example.Everything in 1 place to refill my golf bag. Thank you for introducing us to this tote…Hope I win!.Keep up this creative website!

  40. July 14, 2020 at 8:06 am

    Flower Market Buckets and Blooms is the photo I pinned. I would use the Tan Dot organizer for my paints and crafts supplies. We have a horse farm and I paint halters for the horses when we go to special shows! I am always forgetting where I stuck my paints so this would be a fantastic place to put them and keep me organized! :) I always look forward to your posts! They are the best! :)

I would use it for my scissors and wire cutters, floral tape, floral wire, etc so much small and larger things like the dowels use those and looks like a perfect fit for the zippered pocket.

I need scissors, twine, markers, little statues,etc.,shells, rock, just whatever I feel he would like in his garden.

    Love, love, love this blog❤️ You come into my email box with a “boat load” of inspiration and delight!! Is there anything not to like about your tablescapes, your potting shed, the sweet dogs, and Lake Norman?? As a gardener and crafter, you’ve inspired my own tablescapes during the Covid-19 lockdown in Michigan. Each month I get out a collection/theme to decorate the table my husband and I eat at! Add placemats and cloth napkins and a flower arrangement and it has made life fun in these crazy times! It is just he and I until the kids/grandkids come home. It has been such a joy to follow your lead with everything!! I always pick up something new! The bag would help me organize and elevate the look of my tools for flower arranging! This bag has so many uses! I would love to win it and say it came from your lovely place!! Keep up the good work! You bring joy to so many!! From Lake Michigan to Lake Norman, a shout out of thanks😷❤️

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this versatile tote! I would use it for my quilting supplies and counted cross stitch supplies supplies when I travel, also for my flowing arranging supplies. Sounds like I need more than one!
    I’m a subscriber. I also save the pic dockside dining hydrangeas and butterflies for the quilt, loved it! I don’t pin.

    Hi Mary, Thank you for sharing your flower arrangement tips and also the totes. I am not as artist with flower arranging as you, but hopeful your hints will help. I am a quilter and this tote would be such a wonder to have! I’m also an RV’er and this would be a great tote to store vitamins and medicines in. I’m a subscriber and want to thank you for the chance to win one. I think the Pill tote is so cute.
    Have a great day!

    I would use the “Everything Mary” tote to set up a flower arranging kit just as you did. I am always searching for items as they tend to grow legs. I believe this solution will help make my arrangements much nicer. I pinned your photo of the floral kit. Thank you for all your wonderful ideas and inspiration. I look forward to your posts.

  81. July 14, 2020 at 9:53 am

    Would use it to keep me organized in what ever I’m doing. Crafts, garden, paper making any thing!! Thanks for the dawing.

    So beautiful, colorful and filled with how-to information

    Mary, what a wonderful giveaway. I would definitely love to be a winner of the Mary Tote and would use it for flower arranging supplies as you do. Mine are kept in an antique pie safe along with other crafting supplies but it they were all together in a tote I wouldn’t have to search through everything else to find just what I needed, besides today is my birthday. We are visiting our daughter, who went out early tins morning and brought back a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Harris Teeter. I asked her if she had any sprite for the flowers and she replies no why, so I showed her your preservative tip. The arrangement had a little wooden bee 🐝 on a long stick in the center. Proceeds go to help the bee population.

    I now have a new hobby…. soap molding .I copied your ideas and my grandchildren love the soaps I make for them
    Now I have a collection of supplies and need somewhere/something to keep them in.
    I also used your idea to decoupage and old metal watering can.It is so pretty now!

    I have outside a living room window, next to my computer I have a bird feeding “station”. It attracts many different birds and is a great source of entertainment, Access is not close so I would use the tote to transport my supplies when I tend the various sources of feeders. As a long time follower I so enjoy your posts. A bright spot is some not so bright days! Thank you.

    Good morning Mary! I have pinned the hydrangeas by the water with the sweet butterfly and of course the beautiful arrangement with the skewers and the sea shells! I would use the polka dot organizer to arrange my craft items. I think all the pockets make it absolutely perfect. You find the neatest things, I want to go shopping with you, we’d have a blast! About two years ago, I found a smaller version of your heavy white urn and I’m eager to try my hand at an arrangement with my summer flowers, ( here’s hoping my hydrangeas bloom this year!) 😄 Thank you Mary! ♥️

      I would use this tote for my son’s school supplies when he goes back to distance learning for school.

I felt like we were constantly searching for pencils and erasers on the kitchen table.

    With all the new guidelines in place plus (unrelated) my school’s switch to block scheduling, I will now be an itinerant teacher (switching classrooms throughout the day). All good, but, as I do a lot of hands-on learning, I have been looking for a bag with oodles of pockets (kept wondering whether I would have to wear one of those safari vests :) ) to be able to do lots of on-the-spot learning. I would keep some staples like scissors, index cards, and incomplete decks of playing cards, as well as some project-specific rotations like old spice jars, sachets, string, modeling clay, goofy photos, sandpaper, etc. Just packing it every night for the next day’s class will be a great way to walk through my class plan. Thanks for the inspiration

I don’t really garden or craft or anything like that. Does hoarding makeup count? Ha! Thanks for the chance to win this jewel. As I said, it’s very nice and looks oh so practical, too!

  123. July 14, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    Mary, what a wonderful, information filled blog. My name also is MARY! Flower arranging has always been enjoyable for me since early in my life. When I was a young girl finishing High School I worked for Aleene’s Fiber & Floral Supply Company when she was beginning her very successful company. You know, the Aleene’s White Glue that is still available today? Her business was across the street from my father’s Real Estate office. I worked doing secretarial work primarily for her father (Papa Jackson) who was general manager. I learned so much about flower arranging and made hundreds of fiber floral decorations as my hobby. I would love to have A Tote for my crafting supplies. Thanks for taking me back to “memory lane”.

I would use it to keep my car organized with all my school supplies. I always drag home everything each day and it falls all over my car! I would carry your tote proudly in and out of my school room and be able to keep all my vital supplies in order! Thank you Mary for your beautiful blog and wonderful ideas in decorating. : )

    We have a motorhome and everytime we leave for a trip, I dump my painting supplies (acrylic and oil) into a grocery bag to take with me.

You bring a breath of fresh air while we are all home isolated and looking for a job. I would be happy to have the black and white tote and would use one currently for Covid-19 supplies. Mask for the family, Disinfecting wipes, Thermometer, tissues, eye protection, Non-latex disposable gloves or work gloves, paper towels, first aid kit, snacks, refillable water bottles, cough drops, nasal spray, extra roll of toilet paper and such so that we are prepared for whatever might happen in the future and would be so easy to grab and be organized in a car, by the front door or in the house.

    I thought I had seen every floral arrangement you have created in the last few years. Ha, ha silly me! Love the arrangement featuring shells (yes I saved it). So, I guess I would use the tote just as you have; adding all those extras I never thought of: potato peeler, sticks, inside of flower trays, etc. Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

    Your creativity always amazes me!!. I love to open your posts. It puts a smile on my face and warmth in my heart. What a beautiful and practical tote! A garden bag, a craft bag or a tool bag, so many choices, but I would use it for the garden- until I needed it for a tool bag, no wait, I might need one for the dogs shampoos, brushes and towels towels, and definitely one for a friend or two.

    I live in a very muted monochromatic world, so the beige one would be perfect for me. ♥

I tote a lot of my own craft supplies to and from school. My kiddos enjoy using my “fancy” glitter, ribbon and embellishments to craft cards for their loved ones. I would enjoy any of the three bags. All of them are adorable! Thank you!

    This tote would be perfect to keep all my knitting supplies for a project.

    I would use the tote for the boat and anchoring out on the island. It would be great for sunscreen, hats/visors, speaker and other essentials for a day on the water. I love the pill print. It is so pretty! I love the trick with the alum to help with wilting hydrangeas. Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers.
    I follow you via email.

    I would love to have either print. I need an organization tote to keep my glue gun supplies along with wire cutters, etc for monthly decorating. I try to change out my fireplace mantel and front & back porch decor each month.

    I would use this tote to organize my vinyl supplies!

      Hi Mary. I am a former florist and business owner that cannot stop arranging flowers even though I work full time in customer service. I would use this as my go bag on the weekend side gigs that still feed my creativity. It would hold everything for the job. Thank you. LOVE your blog. It is the only one I consistently read.

        We are boaters also, but in the Pacific Northwest , San Juan Islands. I make art and also crafts in many mediums from painting, sketching, bead and wire jewelry and shell scapes. I need to contain the supplies I take on the boat or my husband finds beads in the engine room, or watercolor supplies in the bunks. These look like really handy bags for getting organized.
        I love your flowers and recipes, table-scapes are a passion for me but I don’t have as many sets of dishes as you do! We “downsized a year ago, and I still brought too much with me.

    I would love this bag to use to organize my floral supplies. I appreciate all of your tips of creating such beautiful arrangements! I love the use of the vegetable peeler, this makes perfect sense! I like the re=purposing of other supplies to use as well, such as the netting from food products and the plastic grid sections from plant containers…very helpful! Thanks for always providing quality material that is not only beautifully presented but practical and doable to use in our homes!

    Our street has an “angel neighbor” named Mary who has been busy making masks for hospitals. She has given all of us in the vicinity a mask to help keep us healthy. I would love to give her a tan dot tote to show our appreciation!

    Thank you Mary for this opportunity. That tote is adorable. I would use it for sewing notions. I have been making masks for friends and family and this would be very helpful in organizing. I so appreciate your website-so many pretty things to look at and ideas to use. :)

    Hi Mary You are such an inspiration to me in everything you do. I view your potting shed all the time and have copied ideas from yours to use in my own potting shed. I have loved all the posts you make for all the holidays and have used some of the recipes When I visited Marietta, Georgia last year I visited one of the Antique Shops that you told us about that have all the transfer ware and purchased way too much. I love the polka dot tote and would use it for my garden supplies much like what you put in yours, You take care and keep on blogging..

    Beautiful way to carry card making supplies from room to room, depending on where to sit for a spell and send cards to family and friends.

    What a great tote for any hobby! Needlework is my go-to in stressful times. Having all of my knitting, needlepoint and cross stitch in such a handy tote would be lovely.

    I subscribe to your blog and would like a 2nd entry, thank you.

    I pinned a picture of the bag to my Pinterest Account for a third entry. Thank you!

    I would use this for my candy buffet business – it would be great to carry the small supplies needed to the site for set-up. Bags, ribbons, signs, etc. I have pinned the image of the hydrangea with sand dollar – your creations are fantastic!

  186. July 18, 2020 at 4:41 pm

    I would use my bag to corral our painting supplies. My husband and I have recently begun to share some time together painting various things. We never had many common interests over these past 32 years, so this is huge for me. A nice bag like that would be life-changing.

    I would love to use a craft organizer the same way you do – to organize flower arranging supplies.
    I’m an email subscriber and about to go back and pin several of your ideas!

  188. July 21, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    Wow Mary I learned so much from this post. I have been so lazy about flower arranging for much of anything since Covid started but you have inspired me. I have just been doing orchids because they last so long. Good luck to the winner.

    If I were selected to recieve a Mary bag I’d use it to correll the grandkids craft supplies. Colored pencils, scissors, stickers, glitter, glitter tray, glue pens and other treasures :)

    Wow! You have hundreds of entries. I think the bag would be a great organizer to take my floral supplies to our garden club’s Christmas tea decorating day. We pick a members home and decorate every room in the house even the bathrooms so we need lots of supplies and flowers and greenery. We all share our supplies and usually the decorating day is more fun for us than the actual tea day, The organizer tote would be a great help to carry all of that up stairs, etc. Thank you for thinking of this!
