Giveaway :: Tiny Galaxies

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

{please visit Tiny Galaxies here}

 For my son’s first birthday, we created a time capsule. We asked our friends and family to write down any significant event that occurred in the first year of his life so that, in thirty years, he would have a picture of what the world was like the first year he was alive.  My first thought for the capsule was the Mars Rover landing because, well, that’s a pretty gigantic event, don’t you think? Me too. It got me thinking about when I was a child and I thought the stars were made out of glitter. (I also thought the moon was actually cheese, but that’s another story.) Mars and glitter and space travel magic are quintessential wanderlust facilitators.

Sara Broski of Tiny Galaxies has taken everything magic I have ever felt about the sky and traveling and translated it into fantastically chic jewelry. Broski started working with resin and perfected her craft (while honing her metalworking techniques) and uses her unique vision to create accessories that marry two of my favorite things: “simplicity and sparkle.” Aside from the beauties I have pictured above, these super tiny circle post earrings and these globe earrings in sparkly taupe seem destined for all of your wanderlust adventures. To the moon and back, my friends.

Tiny Galaxies is giving away one $40 gift certificate to the shop (my favorites are pictured above) to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Wednesday, August 29th.  Comments now closed…good luck!
Would you rather have an all expenses paid trip around the world or have the opportunity to fly into space?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, September 3rd, to see if you’ve won!

    Around the world! Space would be cool, but I would love the opportunity to explore the cultures of the world…and food! Astronaut food doesn’t seem all that appealing.

    Christina P says:

    All expenses paid trip! Not interested in going to space, anti-gravity is fun, but not that fun! I would love to go all over, it would be such an adventure!

    The trip around the world! Seeing all of the places we never knew existed. It would take a lifetime but what a life!

    Misty V says:

    oh, most definitely a trip around the world. 
    outer space is simply beautiful from afar, but the landscape of this world is breathtaking up close.
    and not quite sure how crazy i’d be about being in a space ship.

    Kellie says:

    All expenses paid around the world, though I know there is a while universe to discover, I would like to start with the world right around me!

    Meghan says:

    After about four days of travel I desperately want to be back I’m my home.  However, if the trip around the world could somehow include the comforts of my own personal space, I could do that.

    Oh boy this is a no brainer for me. I would defo pick the trip around the world.If we were meant to live in space we would have been born there. Plus I hear the shopping there sucks.

    Jacinta says:

    Even though there’s a chance I’d look better in my bikini in a zero-gravity environment, I’d  spend waaay too long trying to decide which shoes to pack–you know they only allow one carry-on bag in space! Add the fact that there are still so many parts of this world I’d still like to see, and you’ll understand why I have to choose earth over space!

    julia says:

    This is a tough one but I’d choose an all expense paid trip around the world!
    Eventually we’ll all get an opportunity to go into space. Maybe not our generation, but probably our kids, and grandkids.

    Nikki says:

    If it were truly a possibility, I’d pick the all expenses paid trip around the world…but in the land of make-believe and possibilities, I’d choose to fly into space.  The ability to be a part of infinity delights my mind.

    Theresa says:

    Teresa E. says:

    WOW!!  I have to say I would rather see the world.  I am afraid of heights so flying is one thing, going up into space might just do me in!!

    Ana M says:

    All expenses paid trip around the world. Especially since travelling around the world is one of many things on my bucket list 🙂

  31. 81
    Nicole says:

    All expenses paid trip around the world. I have only left the U.S. to go to Canada. There are so many countries I want to visit! Plus, I think I would be a little anxious about going into space!

  32. 82
    AmandaK says:

    All expenses paid, around the world! There are so many amazing places to experience, colors to see, tastes to taste, smells to smell – who needs the moon, except to see it from an amazing location (ideally with amazing people, or simply feeling you,yourself, are amazing)?

    Amie Althaea says:

    I haven’t seen Paris yet, so it would have to be a trip around the world.  <3

  34. 84
    Melinda K E says:

    I have always wanted to travel to other countries, so I would pick the trip around the world!  I should mention that I have a fear of flying and I don’t do so well being away from home for more than a week at a time, but nonetheless, if I had a paid trip it would be the chance of a lifetime. Space would be really cool to see but I might get too freaked out.

    Christy Ann says:

    I would take the trip around the world, because it has always been my dream. Traveling to space is better left to astronauts for now.

  36. 86
    Susan G says:

    I think I would choose the trip around the world. Traveling into space would be amazing but I think it would blow my mind and I would have wayyy too many questions. Plus, I am not sure I would enjoy the freeze dried space food.

  37. 87
    Alicia says:

    SPACE! I want to float around, be closer to the stars and look back at Earth like its a tiny dot.

  38. 88
    Faye-Louise says:

    A trip to space every time! It would be a dream come true to dance amongst the stars!
    As the old quote says “When you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares right back into you”.

  39. 89
    Jen says:

    Around the world! I hear the food in space is lacking. And the shopping 🙂

    Ali says:

    By far and away, I’d rather have a trip around the world. While space would be amazing to explore, I would prefer to take my time getting to interact with people and getting to know different cultures. What an experience!

    Ellen says:

    All expenses trip around the world!!

    Louise Verity says:

    That’s a tough one because space is pretty scary but if the opportunity came up I think I’d have to take it. Put me down for the space trip!

  44. 94
    Denise says:

    Around the world!

    Kathleen m says:

    I would take the trip around the world. I barely understand the amount of a grain of sand about our planet and it’s inhabitants, it would be best to start with that lol.  I like looking at space with the ground under my feet as well…I’m a bit of a scardy cat when it comes to the death vacuum of space. In the end I just am reminded of being in Florence Italy with my super geek of an uncle and his telescope looking at the best sky of my life.

    Karrie Smith says:

    I would rather travel the world. I would NEVER get into a spaceship!

    Amzi says:

    Wow, I think travelling the world would be the clear choice…BUT having grown up on really good sci-fi, and with Curiosity landing being so exciting… I’d take the space!!
