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).

    I love this idea! I would write something like “I love you to the moon and back” or “we wished on a star and got you”

    On the night you were born the moon smiled with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you

    I would put Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on my picture, along with my daughters birth statistics. I have sang this song to her every night when I put her to bed since birth. She is 21mts now and sings some of the words, along with me now.

    I think I would put Jake’s First Starry Night and then History is made in Colonial Williamsburg.

    I love this idea. I would probably put a lyric from the song her dad is writing for her (he did the same for our son and I have a print with that on it in his room. ) Not sure yet though because it’s not finished (neither is she!)

  27. 27
  28. 28

    I would do “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, do you know how loved you are?” The print is so beautiful!

    I think I would use “A labor of love” or We love you to the moon and back. Or maybe just Moon Child, my daughter nickname.

    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.

  58. 58

    I love the “Today you are you” Dr Suess quote and the “Twinkle Twinkle .. do you know how loved you are” message.

    As a new grandmother (to come), I greatly am enjoying the PROJECT NURSERY website. It is a source of wealth (especially since I will be a long distance grandmother). ONCE UPON A STARRY NIGHT is a wonderful tribute to any child.

    I wwould love one of these! My son was born on the first evening of the summer solstice this year!

  72. 72

    Our baby isn’t due until November but once we decide on a name I would add “‘Baby’s name’ first Starry Night” for the quote. Also love the Dr. Seuss quote.

  75. 75
  76. 76

    I would put the message “The stars winked with joy and mischief on the night we welcomed you!!”

    My Starry Night Print would say, “The night you joined our family … a wonderful miracle and the best night of our lives!”

    Would love to be entered to win a personalized print!

  105. 105

    I love this! I have never seen it before but how beautiful!
    I would have a hard time choosing what to write. I like the When you wish upon a star quote from disney… but i might want to look up a Bible verse too…

  106. 106

    I love the “look into your heart and you will find the sky is yours” And of ourse baby’s name to go with it. What a cool print! Thanks for the giveaway.

    I would put the message, “where there is great love, there are always miracles!” this would hang in you babies room, cuz she really is a miracle baby!

    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.

  124. 124

    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.

  125. 125
  126. 126

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

    Hard to pick the most perfect phrase but I like: A Star is born! and a few of the others that have been suggested. Thanks!

  138. 138

    I did pin this on my pinterest but I can not figure out how to post the link here, sorry. Thanks!

  139. 139

    What a clever idea. So hard to pick, but “Sweet Dreams, Little Bear” would be in the running, especially if Ursa Minor were in the sky that night.

    Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half-light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet

    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.

    I would have a quote put on it that my daughter put on a picture that she made for our little guy before he was born, “I will love you unti the day after forever”

    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.
