I recently purchased the Sunny Snowy laptop tote bag to replace my current laptop work bag.

I was seeking a lightweight shoulder bag with a lot of room. My current Coach bag as a longer strap and was placing a lot of weight directly onto my shoulder due to the length of the strap. In addition, my Coach work bag is heavier due to the leather. After searching for about 2 weeks, I finally decided to purse the Sunny Snowy laptop bag due to the size, 4.7 stars our to 5 and with over 1400 reviews. With the DIMENSIONS(LxWxH):17.1″L*5.5″W*14.5″H,Weight:Only 1.23lb, it this was the perfect bag. The shoulder strap length is perfect!

(Warning please excuse the no make photos)

I love the front pocket as you can tell it provides me easy access to my cell phone.

Inside the bag, there is a lot of room and plenty of space for my laptop.

Nice zipper area inside to hold keys or other items you want to secure
My laptop fits nicely inside and has a Velcro strap to secure my laptop

I absolutely love the tote and I personally give a rating of 5 out of 5! Highly recommend

I made these Valentines coloring page cards for my granddaughter’s daycare. I am waiting for the Crayons to arrive to add to the Valentines coloring card. I figure I would place two on the card and leave the additional two crayons in the box for the child to take home. Found this cute project on the Cricut Design with my free Cricut access membership. Worth purchasing the Cricut access membership!
