Sweet Pea Tote's Clutch Wrislet Sponsor Spotlight Review

I was so very excited when Sweet Pea Tote's answered back with a "Yes" when I asked if I could review one of her clutch wristlets and she is going to give the winner of my Something Special for Mom Giveaway Event that starts on May 10th and ends on the 26th, to pick out her style of clutch!

So, No, you don't have to get this pink one if you don't want to. You will be picking out what you want! Isn't that super duper awesome! By the way, if you do want this one, it's the Rose clutch.
This was another one I thought about but then decided I wanted to go girly girl and get something sweet and innocent and I love Roses so the one I got suits me to a tea! Besides her website, you can also shop on her Etsy Shop, too!

There are lots of bags there in all kinds of styles and sizes and colors. You will not be able to make this decision lightly!  I also found out she lives in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which isn't that far from me, and I wonder if she has a shop in Gatlinburg?  Mmm, may have to ask so I can look for it the next time I am up that way, just so I can immerse myself surrounded by this many handbags at one time!
Here's how mine looks a little bit up close and then what it looks like opened up:
I also thought about getting this Rose Hobo Bag in the same design:
Here's a closer look at the fabric so that you see how awesome they are:
Gosh, there is so many styles and colors to choose from that even if you bought one of every color and style, I bet it would take a year or more of switching them out every day to be able to get thru the collection.  I am glad my part is over but whoever wins will face a dilemma.
Of course, we did narrow it down for you, it has to be a Clutch Wristlet so that will help with the style but not the colors! If you put in the search box the style name it came back with 4 whole pages of them you will have to choose from! Aren't you excited to see all the designs? Well, here are a few to ponder on:
I almost got this one below because I love Roses and it was just as cute as the other one!
Here is what Mary (yes, her name is the same as mine, how cool!) says about her bags:
This is where fabric meets imagination. I create one-of-a-kind handbags and accessories that are inspired by today's hottest designer fabrics. My creations are all original designs from patterns I draft myself so my handbags, clutches and wristlets are one of a kind. I also sell my pdf sewing patterns that have easy to follow directions with lots of pictures. 
Check back often to see my new designs come to life. I do take custom orders. All my bags, wallets, key fobs and belts are made with the finest fabrics and strong interfacing and fleece. I use the finest quality hardware and each handbag comes with a Sweet Pea hang tag.  
Your item will be packed in a new plastic bag and box for shipping so they arrive to you in perfect condition. My handbags are made in my smoke free sewing studio. Great prices on superior quality bags!
I really love the fact that she designs some of them herself so that you won't see another one just like it around your neighborhood store. Someone might have one in another town or state but I don't think it will be in the same place unless you buy some for people as gifts. I have always loved things that are different and unusual but absolutely beautiful!
I wanted to show one more Hobo type bag because it is so bold and beautiful that it deserved some attention. She calls it a Chevron Bag. I think the ones with the buttons might be those, but I am no expert, so if in doubt, ask her and I am sure she will be glad to help you figure out what you are looking for:
Oh, you aren't gonna believe this but while scrounging around I found out she made 2 quilts!!! I love quilts better than anything else! It says classy and homemade and Grandma all in one! You are gonna love these two patterns! 
Wow! This takes talent that I don't have and I would love to own either one of these, how bout you?
Just a last word from Mary at Sweet Pea Tote's: 
I am quite the perfectionist when it comes to my work and the quality of my products and customer service are of most importance to me. I have GREAT prices on superior quality bags!
