People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. (from an anonymous poem)

"This is so cool! I like how the pattern is like a puzzle, the way the instruments fit together. I just wish that it had a trombone," says Jayden S. (above) from San Jose, CA.

"I've been a happy Tote Your Stuff customer for several years. I love Diane's colorful fabrics and excellent craftsmanship. For a distinctive gift or for personal use, you'll be happy with a tote, apron or other item from TYS," says Gloria Heistein (above), Santa Clara, CA, April 2013

"I love many kinds of embroidery and other needle arts, but you can only put so many on the wall. Plus, the kinds of embroidery I like to experiment with don’t always match my home décor. For instance, this African embroidery is colorful and exotic, but I don’t have a colorful and exotic house.

So this is where Diane and her talent for framing my work with more fabric in a useful way, came into my life. Now my artwork gets more exposure, and I don’t get too uptight if it doesn’t match the pink blouse I’m wearing."  Dee Merrell, Texas

"My Tote Your Stuff treasures are the perfect combination of handcrafting and professionally made creations. I find one is not enough. You need dressy, dress-down and practical (foldup, re-useables for shopping). They make unique gifts, too.”

     "I love to tote my stuff in the four one-of-a-kind handbags Diane has made for me. The fabric she has available to select from is so special, and the pockets and closures are perfect for keeping my "stuff" organized and safe.

     In addition to the handbags, I have a great tapestry tote bag, which was a gift and my introduction to Diane's special skill and talent. Since poppies are one of my favorite flowers, my shopping tote is made from fabric covered with beautiful golden poppies!" Judi Pogue, Sunnyvale, CA, April 2013

    "When I first met Diane and Arlene, my attention was immediately drawn to their beautifully crafted tote bags. When I found out that they are the designers and creators of Tote Your Stuff, I was eager to see more.

     I'm now the proud owner of eight of their tote bags and have given many to others as gifts. I like to use some of mine as totes; others are the perfect size for a purse."  Judy M. Beggs, Los Altos, CA, May 2013

Minoo (above), wearing a French tapestry hipster, created the colorful purses header we use at the top of our home page and at the bottom of other pages (look below). Her recycle art creation is made of recycled cardboard, packaging cellophane, and fabric scraps. The art piece looks so great that you would never guess it's made from items most of us discard.

If you think your burden's heavy and good fortune seems remote,
Just remember to be grateful that you have some stuff to tote.
