Library bag giveaway

Well the long sum­mer school hol­i­day is finally com­ing to an end here in Aus­tralia, and it’s nearly time to go back to school — or in my kids’ case, preschool.  One thing that was good about this hol­i­day for me was that the kids really bonded with each other. Maybe it’s only nat­ural after spend­ing all those weeks together, instead of going to sep­a­rate preschool and day­care rooms. But I am truly grate­ful that they are play­ing together so well now, with much less fight­ing and tears.

Any­way, to cel­e­brate the begin­ning of a new school year — and to thank all my blog and Face­book read­ers for their sup­port — I’d like to give away THREE library bags to three lucky win­ners! These bags are my best­sellers, and no won­der, because they are super use­ful. You can use it for library books, for a sheet and blan­ket for day­care or preschool, and they also come in handy for keep­ing your suit­case organ­ised for trav­el­ing. It’ll also make a great gift for a new mother, because she can cram a lot of baby stuff in the bag and toss it in the stroller bas­ket, with­out hav­ing to buy an expen­sive nappy bag.

Rather than pick­ing the three bags myself, I’d like each win­ner to pick a bag of her/his choice from what’s listed in my Etsy shop (sub­ject to avail­abil­ity). So please check it out.

To enter the give­away, just leave a com­ment to this blog post (not on Face­book) with your name and which library bag print you would like to have if you win.

The give­away is open till Thurs­day, Jan­u­ary 31, at 9pm Syd­ney time. I will then choose three win­ners ran­domly. Good luck!


The give­away is now closed. Thanks every­one for entering!
