This blog is not really a blog. It's more of a sometimes, once or twice a year, write something because you know you want to, but cannot seem to get down to doing it! There's that cool idea of getting to communicate with all your like minded friends and it's a great one.
But the reality is that we're trying to create new items, keep ourselves fresh and get our work in our day jobs completed. Writing time is slim, but even more than that, I wonder whether we should expose you, whoever is reading this, to a bunch of rambling about - who knows what!
So, I'll talk about pockets. Something relevant to bags and bag ladies (like us here at Sak n' Sak.) We can start with the bag to the left of the screen. It is a pocket itself. You can use it (well, I can use it, because I'm thinking of keeping it - shhh)- getting on with things - it can be used very effectively for papers needed for, say, a meeting. There's a crafted inner pocket that is perfect for holding your business cards. Although I have a few business card holders, they seem to be packed with business cards from other people, which is good, but would be even better if I had some of my own business cards to exchange!
Now, that's not a failing of the bag. It's my own failing. My fault, my crazy brain forgets what's right in front of it sometimes.
The bag is innocent. Don't blame the bag.
A tote bag is great for carrying or toting, (yes, thus the name I remind myself) things. Many things fit in a tote, of all sizes and shapes. And that's why a pocket is very handy. Then you can put the smaller items in the tote in the pocket alleviating the fear that one might have, of these smaller items in a zip or velcro closure bag from getting lost in the main compartment of the bag.
There are kangaroo pockets, slim pockets, zippered pockets, invisible pockets, i-gadget friendly pockets, pockets to hold water bottles, gathered pockets and cell phone pockets and pen and pencil pockets. Without pockets, your keys and tissue would fall on the floor all the time.
Pockets for rulers, change, receipts, passports, eyeglasses, shoes, towels, wiring, earphones, CDs and DVDs. There are pockets for everything!
Our world would be that much sadder without pockets. Aren't we glad we have them?
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
