My first item was purchased from the lovely Barbara La Bosco. She runs the cute little shop "All About the Buttons" found here on zibbet at http://www.zibbet.com/allaboutthebuttons or you can find her on facebook here. When Barbara uploaded these adorable fingerless gloves I immediately fell in love with the colours! She was able to whip me up my own pair in just a couple of days. I only wish the cold lasted longer here so I could use them more!
Next comes my purchase from Kumacrafts. They can be found on etsy here http://www.etsy.com/shop/kumacrafts or on facebook here. I purchased a heartsy voucher as soon as I saw that kumacrafts were selected to be one of the featured shops (I even stayed up till 1am to make sure I got one). While I probably could have bought out their whole store and overloaded myself with cuteness however my bank balance sadly disagreed with this :P I was quite fond of their lasercut acrylic designs and the red panda won me over instantly, red pandas are cool. I love the kawaii designs of Kuma and you can see they put a lot of effort into each piece.
Needless to say I am very pleased with the items and service from both stores. So I advise anyone to go check them out!
