Those who follow my Etsy postings will know that Siamsquare is one of my absolute top sellers there!
A good part of the things in my purse I use daily are from her (my new eco bag and my Nintendo DS pouch e.g. about which I will post soon).

The sweet lady running the store, Masko, has offered to send me 2 items to give away on my blog to my readers!

-In addition, anyone who wants to purchase from her (click HERE) and mentions my blog in the notes to seller will get 5% off on orders under US$35 and %10 off if your purchase is over US$35. Valid until the end of August! Just check out as normal (don't forget to mention my blog) and pay and you'll get a refund through from Masko to your Paypal account!

-One of the buyers mentioning my blog will also have the chance to win a small quilted Sanrio Cinnamoroll box pouch! I have a similar one and the fabric is so cute!! Winner will be picked by Siamsquare and announced in the blog early September!

There are 2 pouches in the givaway, so 2 readers will be picked randomly (though since I pick twice out of all comments you have the chance to win both pouches, too!)!

I have the pouches here and they're really soft and fluffy! The fabrics used are discontinued ones from Japan!

-Pouch 1:

-Pouch 2:

To participate please:

-follow my blog through BLOGGER (if you aren't a follower yet scroll down my blog and click on "follow this blog"

-go to Siamsquare's shop and browse her items and also sold items and tell me 1 or more items you like most (just comment on this post; emails or comments on other posts or in the Cbox will be ignored, sorry!)
You can also browse her flickr album here!

The giveaway will end on Sunday, August 23rd at 9 PM (my time, that's GMT+1).

The winners must please send me their addresses to within 3 days after I announce the winners.

Thanks everyone for participating and Good Luck!!
Oh and I will also add a few extra goodies for the winners! =)
