More Etsy-mania & GIVEAWAY! (Open for all readers worldwide!)

My first birthday is approaching (Me = Lotus Palace hehe) so you will find more giveaways over the next weeks! Sounds cool, right?

Anyways, yesterday and today new truckloads of Etsy cuties arrived here so it's time to blog about them (and who knows...might get more stuff tomorrow and after lol). I also got some cute stationery from eBay and new label stickers/"Thank-You"-cards for my sales blog =)

I'll sort my Etsy hauls by seller and the eBay stuff is in 1 pic =D


This lady has the cutest cupcake (and other food)-themed totes and magnets! They look incredibly kawaii! I got 2 cupcake magnets (for my kids, they were waiting so hard for these to arrive!), a super cute butter toast charm (I attached it to my purse hehe) and a nice roomy tote/eco bag with the cutest sundae on it!
I also got some yummy candies (my kids sure stole them hehe)


I already mentioned this seller in my last Etsy haul post! Her items are so cute and this little pink needle felted brooch was too pretty to resist!


I ordered a nice thin cotton flannel blanket for my toddler and it's perfect fot the hot weather right now! The blanket is much bigger than regular swaddler blankies so it's great for toddlers and kindergarden kids!


This lady specializes in those pretty linen organizers (In Touch Clutch)... you can get them in dozens of different fabrics, including some cute Japanese prints. I decided on the Eggplant Folklore fabric and it's really pretty! The memo pad, pen and cards were included, too!


Ok, you can consider this seller among my top favorites (along with Siamsquare, Tippythai and some others).
She makes the most adorable pouches, totes and passport covers! She had a sale going on so I indulged in quite a few items (2 passport cases are for my kids) and they're so well made, very professional and the fabrics are really to die for! Of course all bags are lined and interfaced!

I got a big wristlet (so sweet!), 3 passport cases for my kids and me, a cute honey bear pouch, a small pouch with turtles, a big roomy clutch (this is the perfect size for my huge day planner and some pens) and a pocket tissue pouch with dancing piglets (for my car, have the one from chetanddot in my handbag).
I am waiting for a few more items from this seller as I ordered in smaller bunchs not to get taxed!
I received 2 pencils, erasers, a sharpener and some cute little cards along with my 3rd order!

This is the stationery I hauled from eBay and etsy (listed under supplies...still waiting for more!)

And last but not least my Lotus Palace cards and stickers (from a German website) =)

I am giving away a
Dennis Anderson Whipped Soap in Cherry Blossom and a The Big Squeeze Shower Gel in Cherry Blossom! Of course both items are unused/untested and fresh!
