My Etsy week so far =P + Giveaway!

Yea I definitely got addicted to the sweetness of handcrafted goods from Etsy. And to stationery you can find there in the "supplies" category!

Packages keep coming in daily right now lol! I think I received stuff every day for the past 1 1/2 weeks except on last Thursday! And this Monday was a postal/public holiday so no mail either!
But I got quite a load of new cuties from Tuesday until today and if I should get something(s) tomorrow I will simply update this post tomorrow!

So the stuff is sorted by sellers as (very pic heavy post as usual =P):


Reader Anissa commented on one of my previous Etsy haul posts recommending to check out seller chigu on Etsy. And I did and ordered 2 things haha (2 orders but they arrived yesterday and today)!
Chigu has hands-down the cutest, sweetest and most kawaii patchwork/applique pouches you can imagine. Her favorite color is pink as you will notice when you look at the pouches lol! (My fave color is pink, too, so this stuff is for me!)

Each pouch tells you a little story and you can feel with how much love these have been handcrafted. For the amount of work spent on each pouch her prices are very reasonable so I highly recommend checking out her shop!

I got the "Pink Bear Matryoshka Pakkun Pouch" (this has a squeeze know those metal things sewn in the top part so you just squeeze to open) and the "Pink Bunny Mummy Sleeping Bag Zipper Pouch".
Aren't they adorable? The zipper pouch is considerably large so it holds a good amount of cosmetics!
Did you spot the cute "Thank You"-tags on the pics? They come with a little brooch!


Here I found this super cute small My Melody tote bag! It's very sweet and well made (and lined with cute pink gingham fabric). It's a gift for my cousin (the one who's getting a baby.. I'll put her swaddler blankets in the tote!)


I posted about this seller before here. Her handmade items are just perfect quality and excellent craftsmanship.
I purchased this super cute Cinnamoroll box pouch and the organizer which holds so much stuff (9 cards slots, various other slots and even a zippered pocket on the back)!
She is definitely one of my favorite sellers and I check her store daily for new listings!


I found this funny little keyring in the iPod Nano-design. Look at the pear on the back of it lol! In this shop you can also find sweet coasters, magnets and other bits you might like!


This is yet another favorite seller. Her pouches, clutches, totes and other stuff are made of the sweetest Japanese fabrics. I ordered the 2 items when she had a sale and it took a while for them to get here (no idea why! The other packages sent on the same day came last week and before). Anyway, the items were really cheap but as always perfect quality, cute fabrics and just lovely all around!
I got the large Matryoshka tote and a pencil case/cosmetics case with the cutest little animal town.
Tomorrow a pouch sale will start in her shop so have a look there!


I also got some cute deco tapes, gift bags and a little memo pad from seller craftingbug. They're mainly for packing up stuff from my sales blog, contests etc. =D


This was actually my very first Etsy order on the 2nd of May but seems Ella is so swamped with orders that it takes her some time to produce everything and get things mailed out! I read about her line "Beautiful Twists" on Musings of a Muse and really liked the cute packaging/nice person behind the products.

I got (from the "Sexy Librarian" range) the Cinnamon Roll Room Spray (so good! This smells like the real thing!), Maneater Vanilla Cupcake Body Mist & Lip Conditioner (nice, sweet marshmallow-y vanilla scent) and Kary Had a Big Lamb Fairy Tale Body Mist & Lip Conditioner (the Body Mist is a bit too strong and flowery for me but the Lip Conditioner's Coconut Milkshake flavor is really yummy).
I also received 2 free lipbalms.
I am giving away one of them (read on the bottom of this post for more information).

As you can see on the pics her stuff came wrapped really nicely and there were cute hand-written notes on the back of the labels, too!


I am giving away the Beautiful Twists Lip Conditioner in Banafrit (Egyptian Marshmallow & Watermelon Bubble Gum)
