Meet Cyrus: Japan Team Featured Item

This week I had a browse around the toy shops in the Japan team and found this cutie called Cyrus. I love his fluffy tail too! Ayumi Kinoshita's work is so cute and beautifully made.
Why not have a look at some of the other soft toys in AYMK's shop too?

Oh no! I just found another really cute item!

Featured on the Etsy Front Page

Wow! I wondered why my hearts and views had gone through the roof when I checked today. And here's the answer. No sales from the feature, but it's still nice to see that I'm still being noticed occasionally:)
Happy days.
Thanks to naventin jewelry for choosing me.

Japan Team Featured Item- Easter Sunday

Now my hectic giveaway is finished, it's time to get back to normality:)
This week's featured item is from Japanese Temari.
I really love the washi eggs that Barb Suess has painstakingly made from a real egg and Japanese paper.
As it's Easter Sunday today, this is even more fitting to kick off the Japan Team Featured Item again.

Happy Easter everyone!

And the winner is...

Introducing Bonnie and Bella the Springboards (Border Collie/ Springer Spaniels) who helped me to fairly administer my giveaway today.

I gave them two envelopes full of the competition entrants' names and asked them to choose one envelope. The names in the envelope they chose were then split into two and put into two envelopes and they were asked to choose again. We carried on doing this until we were left with one name.

I thought this was going to be a tricky task but Bonnie and Bella did what they were asked and came up with a random winner at the end (with the help of a few biscuits:)).

Are you ready girls?
On your marks...get set...GO!

Let's choose this one Bonnie! OK, Bella... Good choice.

Why didn't Victoria put some biscuits in here for us? What a meanie!

I'll take this one please. I get to choose first as I'm the big sister.

Is it OK if I choose this one Big Sis?

Yawn! We're getting tired now. We need some biscuits to keep our energy up.

Yes, this is the one I wanted to choose. I knew this one would win (because I'm the Big Sis). I knew all along that this one would be the winner.

What does it say, Victoria?

And the winner of the first bikudesigns giveaway is...

Sandie of ZaftigDelights

Thanks to everyone who entered the competition. Over 80 of you entered and left wonderful comments on my blog. I appreciate your support for my first giveaway.

I'll be in touch over the next few days to let you know about your free gift!
