The Ultimate Children's Design Resource


Giveaway: First Starry Night Print from Indigo Night

There are all sorts of mementos that we keep to commemorate the birth of our children. I still have a newspaper from the day my son was born. But wouldn’t it be neat to be able to capture that first night that you held your baby in your arms? Indigo Night does the next best thing. You give them the date and the location your child was born, and they create a large poster print of the way the stars and the moon appeared that night. Indigo Night will be giving away a beautiful, framed night sky print to FIVE lucky Project Nursery readers.

I love the idea of a little one gazing at their print as they fall asleep at naptime or bedtime. You can choose the landscape that is featured beneath the starry night sky from selections such as familiar skylines, treetops, rooftops, beaches, mountains, rivers, lakes…they can even make an illustration from your photograph.

You can also add words to the print—whether it be a special message from you, a famous quote or a line from a favorite book or poem, your child is sure to cherish this special memento.

WIN IT! Five lucky Project Nursery readers will win a framed Child’s First Starry Night print from Indigo Night ($119 each).

HOW TO ENTER: Visit Indigo Night for some message ideas, and let us know what message you might put on your print in a comment below. Contest ends Friday, July 13th, 2012 at 11:59 PDT. Winners chosen by random number generator.

    This idea is phenomenal. I loved the quotes from the site, but I have always loved Shel Silverstein I would use “Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings” from Forgotten Language. The whole poem goes:

    “Once I spoke the language of the flowers,
    Once I understood each word the caterpillar said,
    Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,
    And shared a conversation with the housefly
    in my bed.
    Once I heard and answered all the questions
    of the crickets,
    And joined the crying of each falling dying
    flake of snow,
    Once I spoke the language of the flowers…
    How did it go?
    How did it go?”

    After visiting the Indigo Nights website, I think I would much rather have the print for an anniversary present for my husband and myself. We married in Montana and I can’t think of a more wonderful place to have a starry night print. Now, as for what quote I’d have… too hard to decide. There have been some great ones listed here, but I’d probably find something from the Bible. Very cool and unique gift idea. I do like the constellation print out on the back.

  • http://faithfulfreja.blogspot.com/ Freja

    I think I would have “May the stars that watched you then bless you always”… it reminds me of the Irish Blessing we had read at our wedding. That or a lyric from Coldplay’s “Yellow,” specifically “Look at the stars, look how they shine for you.” I have sang/played that song for our little one since I was pregnant with her.

  • Janelle W

    I love the Dr Suess quote. I’d probably put “Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.” It was our family’s thing to say when we saw the stars first night.

  • Nica
  • Laura

    So sweet! I would probably say somethingalong the lines of “the night the universe got a little sweeter.” :)

    What a lovely keepsake idea! I’d have a hard time choosing what to write, but I really like “twinkle twinkle little start, do you know how loved you are?” because I sing “Twinkle, Twinkle” to my baby girl at night. I also like the “Once upon a starry night” line since my baby was born at night.

    My daughter’s name is Skyler and we often call her Sky, so it’s really hard to find just the right thing. Since it doesn’t have to be perfect for this entry, I’ll go with “Build a ladder to the stars and climb on every rung” and I’d love to have her name on it.
