sound the trumpets - it's a mystery giveaway


Now that title certainly sounds impressive! I thought it would be nice to have a little giveaway, it's a mystery package so I can't give away what you will find inside...

The above image is one of Mairuru's quilted furoshiki, Mairuru has kindly written a great post on how to sew your own furoshiki on her blog. And although you won't be receiving the above furoshiki, I will be making one just for my mystery giveaway to wrap all the goodies in!!

I'll be pulling the winner's name out of the Handsome Steve's coffee cup on May 1st and my giveaway is open to both Australian and International bloggers.

So if you are tempted to put your name in for the opportunity to receive my mystery package you just need to leave a comment with this post to say Hi!

More furoshiki goodness over here!
