Design is Yay is ONE. YAY!
Design is Yay has given me so much this year – new things to learn, new friends and some opportunities. I’m so happy to say that we are definitely evolving! But I wouldn’t have done all of this without the support of my wonderful readers. So, Thank you so much!
As a token of my appreciation, I’ve decided to host a special birthday giveaway. This giveaway is sponsored by some of my favourite designers/shops around the world.
One Lucky winner will receive:
1x 2014 Calendar by Toodles Noodles (NZ)
1x Haha Velveteen Fabric Cushion Cover by Lorna Love (NZ)
1x Greeting Card from An April Idea (AU)
1x Letterpress Greeting Card featuring artwork by Juliette Dudley (AU)
1x $25 Voucher from Peachy Box (NZ)
4x Paper Fridge Magnet from Paper Jet Design (South Africa)
1x Red Party in a Box Set by Pepita De Chocolate (Portugal)
Giveaway is open to residents worldwide :)
I’m feeling very generous, so I’ve decided to giveaway some souvenirs I bought during my trip to Indonesia. No, they are not your typical keychains and fridge magnets souvenirs you usually get from your not-so-close colleagues. These souvenirs are handpicked and selected from some of Indonesia’s best independent designers.
Just a note, this giveaway is NOT sponsored by any of the shops. I just thought it will be a great giveaway for you readers, a great way to promote these independent designers, and I hope to bring even more readers to my blog. Win-win! :)
I have 4 gifts to giveaway.
Giveaway 1: Monkey Plushie by Cemprut Indie Craft
The woman behind Cemprut, Aphrodita, handmade awesome and cute plushies that you can “adopt” from their facebook page. They use the term adopt instead of buy to create a personal connection between you and the cute creatures you adopted. Each plushie is unique. They might sell lots of other monkey plushies, but they might have different fabrics and colours. So the monkey I’m giving away to you is called Alvodapo.
Giveaway 2: Rickshaw Tissue Cover by Canvas Living
I discovered Canvas Living during my visit to an independent shops market in Jakarta. Canvas Living was created by Harry & Sally (When Harry meet Sally? :P). They use natural canvas to create lifestyle products such as Tissue Cover, Jewellery box, pouches, bags, sandals and many more. The item I’m giving away is a Rickshaw patterned Tissue Cover. Rickshaw is originally called Bajaj in Indonesian. It’s a mode of transport at certain areas in Jakarta.
Giveaway 3: Batik Pouch by Batik Keris
Okay, Batik Keris is not exactly independent. I bet if you have ever been to Indonesia, you have seen Batik Keris. But, there has got to be a Batik item in this giveaway! And this pouch is cute.
Giveaway 4: Hand-Illustrated Notebook by Koolastuffa
Remember that Art Festival I went to in Jakarta? I posted a photo of Koolastuffa stall. So you know the kind of stuff they sell. I’m giving away a hand-illustrated small notebook. Check out more of Koolastuffa’s awesome products and illustrations in their blog.
