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!
