A glorious giveaway for my 300+ precious Planetarians

Ah, Lovelies, all 321 of you! This week has been ever-turbulent, as my Dad fainted and fell in hospital, injuring himself, certain unnamed pixies had doozies of tantrums, Mr PB had the whole week off, the Royal Wedding proved a fabulous and uplifting pageant and I bought some more words and fabric from Spotlight as I felt further inspired to create. So many of you have left the kindest and most heart-warming comments here and on Facebook, leaving me a little overwhelmed at the goodness you all show me. Daily. Thankyou.

So finally, both to lift my mood and especially as so many more Planetarians have recently hopped aboard (the warmest of welcomes to you special people), it’s high time I had a little giveaway to celebrate reaching 300 Planetarians, as promised. Hooray! So, here’s what I’ve squirreled away in recent weeks for your delectation (hmm, the logophile in me loves that word!).
It’s a mix of pretties I’ve blogged about before, things I like to wear, some ribbons and stationery. You know, some of the things which make my heart sing!

Okay, let’s get close up with my little purchases for you. Let’s start with the gumball necklace made by my lovely Hobart friend Edwina of Little Snoring which I posted about here.
I adore wearing mine. And Sam hasn’t managed to destroy it. Yet!
Now let’s turn to clever Rebecca Roth’s gorgeous green resin bangle. I’ve posted about them here and here, remember? I have about 6 of them in green, blue and black. I wear them most days. They’re so delightfully smooth yet rough and organic, each unique. Oh, and for the locals, look at what little treat I found for you at Rebecca’s shop this week! I’m not sure how long the sale will last so hop over there lickety-split, if you’re keen!
Then here’s a little honeysuckle-coloured, cloth-covered and lined notebook from Officeworks which I have decorated with some of Planet Baby’s signature butterflies. What say you, my fellow stationery fiends?!
Now here’s another lined notebook, this time from Typo, featuring a marvellous map of New York.
After Kerry’s recent trip there, I’d love to be walking those streets, not just gazing at them. Sigh.

And to finish, here are a couple of my handmade little ribbon holders, just like the ones you saw on my mood board, but in white. With some of my favourite blue grosgrain and checked ribbon, naturellement! Oh, and replete with some more PB butterflies.
And in true Planet Baby style (after my last giveaway), there will also be prizes for the second and third names drawn. I’ll keep them as surprises.

Terms and conditions

So, here’s the fine print (that’s the lawyer in me talking!):

1. If you're a Planetarian, leave a comment and you're in, like Flynn (hmm, remind me to tell you about Errol Flynn’s Hobart upbringing one day).

2. If you're not already, become a Planetarian by clicking on the little Google Friend Connect button in my sidebar and follow the prompts.

3. You get an extra entry for:

- blogging about it;

- linking to it; and

- putting it in your sidebar.

Just leave a comment for an extra entry to be awarded in each case.

4. This offer is open worldwide to all my fellow Planetarians. Yes, the pixies will happily help me lick enough stamps to post it anywhere.

5. The giveaway will close at on Friday 20 May 2011 at 6 pm AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time so overseas Planetarians please take that into account) and will be drawn by the pixies from the Ceremonial Planet Baby Gumboot.

So, dive in and enter! I can’t wait to send these little packages winging their way around the world.


  1. Yippedy yey - what a happy day, 300+ Planetarians & counting.

    Please add my name into the hat, my fingers are crossed for all this loveliness to wing its way to my mailbox.

    xx Felicity

  9. Congrats on the 300th post Jane and yes i would love to be in..count me :)

    p.s i am also a follower here as you may already know that lol xox

  10. I had been wondering if your dad was ok and hoping the lack of updates on reader didn't mean that things had gone downhill. I never thought to come direct to check for new posts. Hopefully reader will get back working again asap!

  11. Great giveaway Jane! Sorry to hear about your Dad's faint - I hope he's recovering well enough and not too shaken by it. And doozie tanties are tiring (for the parents) aren't they?

    As for Errol Flynn - I'm not sure if you realise, but he was born in a house across the road from where Emma Burgess now lives!! One in from Warwick Street on the Elizabeth Street side of the road.

    Can't wait to see the reveal of Sammy's haircut - I just love the transformation from baby to boy after that first cut! It's hard for Mum's to loose the curls but a stylish cut will get the girls!!

  12. What a wonderful giveaway! Love your sons old curls - my son had a haircat recently and i find myself looking at him twice sometimes as it makes such a difference.

  13. What a fantastic giveaway. I'm a follower

  14. Just face booked about your giveaway (which i am always hesitant to do - because then i have less chance of winning) - but i do want to share your lovely blog. Ah catch 22!

  15. Thanks for the email alert Jane! Hope Google starts behaving for you! Love that green bracelet! Has my name on it, right?!
    xo Cathy

  16. A lovely thoughtful giveaway and very happy to be one of the new followers.

    Blessings to your family and your father.
