I'm back with a giveaway. :]

First of all, some words about the previous coupon giveaway we did - there weren't enough responses, so we didn't pick a winner. The coupon with 20% percent off is still active though, so feel free to use it (tag - * lotteries and giveaways, see previous post). :] Our shop has only some items right now, but as promised we'll be posting new things in the future and we do custom orders, so everything we have there can be done in other colors/forms/materials according to your wishes.

Now, about this time's giveaway. I'm a postcrosser for one year. ^^ One of the hobbies I had the longest interest in so far. Well, Japan and languages will be always number one. And I have a lot of hobbies I'm dropping and returning to after I take a break for a year or so.
As I giveaway and item this time, I hope well get enough responses to choose a winner. ^^

Indonesia: Wayang Golek

A beautiful traditional puppet card I got from Indonesia. And it's a surprise card that traveled for a long time. As far as I can tell it was sent sometimes around Valentine's.
Thank you! :]
