So my first big thank you goes to not one, but two people. I entered a giveaway on Unboring Boys for a Mee a Bee messenger bag after being directed there by Jacqui of Mee a Bee! Not only did I win, but I also found a great blog all about boy's stuff!

It was so nice to receive a nice little package all the way from Japan! There was even something for me (a wee purse) which was quite unexpected.
And because Jacqui is so kind, I can offer friends a 10% refund on the purchase price (excluding shipping) until August 31st 2010. How great is that??? Just mention "Kelly" in the the notes to seller for your refund. The quality of her messenger bags is very high, the fabric beautiful and the stitching faultless, so you can be sure your money is well spent.
What are you waiting for? Go check out her etsy store - she has almost 300 sales and 100% positive rating (I think that speaks for itself) - and choose from a range of girl's and boy's bags.
My second big thank you goes to Sarah of Cotton Kiwi, where I won an appliquéd tea towel which has brightened up my pretty boring kitchen.
Sarah is a very clever crafter who runs the Devonport Craft Market. Not only does she organise the market but she is also a seller with numerous popular goodies such as her tape measure brooches. You can find Sarah's online stores on Felt and Etsy, or you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
So Sarah, thank you for sending me out the tea towel - it will get alot of use!
Speaking of giveaways, don't forget you have to be in to win. I'll also be drawing a few names to receive a surprise in the mail so make sure you get your entries in. Good Luck everyone!
