A grand giveaway for my 400+ precious Planetarians

Ah, sweet Planetarians, all 418 of you! It’s been a topsy-turvy week on Planet Baby when blogging has had to take a back seat. We’ve had feverish pixies (with trips to the GP and lots of doses of Nurofen), Mr PB’s parents returning from their 3 month overseas trip (we’re eagerly anticipating seeing them tomorrow), our hot water cylinder requiring replacement (no more 1 minute tepid morning showers for Mr PB and me now!) and the IKEA Lack shelf Mr PB put up in the laundry crashing down within half an hour of its erection. Hmm – something else for this weekend’s ‘to do’ list!

Given so many new Planetarians have hopped aboard this busy planet recently (the warmest of welcomes to you special people), it’s about time I had a little giveaway to celebrate reaching 400 Planetarians, as promised, don’t you think? Me too! I am so grateful to each and every one of you for following my blog, leaving your thoughtful comments and sharing your gorgeous gifts of friendship. You have no idea how much you all mean to me!

Okay, let’s get up close with my little presents for you.
Now I guess you’re thinking ‘stationery’ – right? Well, you know me – I can’t resist sharing some papery pretties with you. But there are a few other treats for you as well.
To start, here’s a photographic collage I made showcasing my love of butterflies. I’ve popped it in a thin IKEA frame which I painted navy blue to match the main butterfly. It has a plastic insert so there’s no worry about the glass breaking whilst in transit. You could always get some glass cut to replace it with – it only costs a few dollars.
Here’s a close-up of the main butterfly – isn’t it divine?
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, this time made from old maps.
Now here are two lined notebooks from Typo, featuring the London Tube network and the Parisian Métro. Ooh, if only I had a magic carpet!
I love this blue, leather-covered, lined notebook from Officeworks, complete with elastic band. Perfect for jotting down bloggy ideas, don’t you think?
Here’s a matching little zipped bag. I wonder what could be inside? Let’s have a peek.
Some colourful paper clips for your stationery stash!
Here’s a photo of one of my Liberty-covered words so I can share a little *blog love* with you!
And here’s one of my latest washi tape covered boxes I whipped up for you. First cake tins and now boxes! Now let’s see if there’s anything hiding inside it…
Hmm, what could that be? Yep, you guessed it – some washi tape! Now you can create your own crafty goodness ☺.
And in true Planet Baby style (after my first 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 my lawyer’s fine print:

1. If you're a Planetarian, leave a comment and you're entered.

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;

- putting it in your sidebar;

- tweeting about it;

- sharing it on Facebook; and

- sharing it on StumbleUpon.

To make it super easy for you to do so, you can just click on the little icons at the bottom of this post!

Make sure you 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. *Real* stamps, too – not just those stickers-dressed-up-as-stamps!

5. The giveaway will close at on Friday 18 November 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. Wishing you the best of British!
