Joy to the World { GIVEAWAY }

Joy to the World, Giveaway, Christmas, Christmas Carols, Love, Peace, Festive, Cheer, Jupiter Skye, Birthday, Four

This is it, there’s no turning back now! Okay, I’m very excited to announce the first “ever” giveaway on my blog! It’s not international (haha, I’m not there yet!) but yes, this December will mark the beginning of my fourth year writing and illustrating here, so I wanted it to start on a cheery note. I’m giving away a little Christmas present – one that I’ve been happily plotting and planning for the past two months or so, and I bought everything last week for my special surprise. So if you’re a regular reader over here, and you’ve grown to like all things Jupiter Skye, there’s a fair chance you’re the kind of person who would want to win this! :-)

What’s in the Box?

1. A set of Ho! Ho! Ho! Christmas gift tags from Little One’s Doodles by Maheswari Janarthanan (There are fourteen of these in a packet; one of which is pictured above!).

2. Do you like bow-tie pins? There’s a red, felt ribbon-made one in here that I crafted.

3. Socks! Yes, socks. I found a darling pair with a pretty splatter of Christmas roses on them, at Forever 21.

4. A set of four cheery stickers that I designed and had printed last year! There are two of each design.

By the way, I’ve intentionally not included a picture of every little thing here because I want some of them to have that surprise element. Even so, I do hope that you are tempted enough to enter!


The rules are simple! And I’m stating this again, this giveaway is for Indian Residents, only. I’ve never done this before so I didn’t want to mess up my first giveaway (if it gets lost across the seas, etc.). But otherwise… International giveaways? Sooner than you think! ;-)

1. Comment below saying why you would want to win this, and if there’s something more you would like to see on my blog (I know, I know, this is my dumb way of getting to hear what you really think!). Okay, so my comments are moderated – don’t fret if you don’t see yours published immediately! (And please don’t forget to include adding your e-mail address in the details box so I have yours saved on my system, I’ll need it to get in touch.)

2. For brownie points – you can ‘Like’ my page on Facebook, and follow me on Twitter! ^.^

What happens after?

I’ll choose ONE winner in exactly four days, save the date – December 4 is when this contest comes to an end! (Yes, it’s going to be that short because I would like you to win the Christmas stationery in time to use some of it like a happy little elf, and this is a bit unrelated but knowing me I’ll probably write each of your names on chits of paper to decide, haha.) As soon as I announce the winner – which will either be on my Facebook or Twitter page (and through an e-mail, perhaps) –  please write back to me with your postal address and phone number right away. I’ll mail the package across then, immediately through speed post!

That’s about it, and uh-huh, this marks the beginning of many, many more to come. Especially particularly during this year! The “Fourth Year of Festivities”, remember? Good luck!

  1. Hi Roanna <3

    I've been reading your blog ever since we've interacted on Twitter!

    Let me win? I've just got back from home and homesickness is the worst feeling ever :(

    Regardless, have a fantastic festive season and lot of love and cheers your way!


  2. That is such a lovely giveaway package! Would love to win it because it’s absolutely marvelous *tee hee*. I’ll definitely use the gift tags for the Christmas snail mail I’d be sending across to my penpals around the world! Eeeep!

    P.S- I really like the font you’ve used for this illustration:
    Where can I download it from? :D

    Lots of love

  3. While I stumbled upon your blog by chance
    I must take a stance,
    And say that an analytical person like me
    Loves a creative person like you
    Because your selection is so fine
    That I want to possess everything that is thine
    And one day pass it on to my daughter, who is not even 9.

  4. I had stumbled across your creative work on Instagram and since then I have been stalking you (Don’t be afraid).
    What I really like about your posts is how with even the simplest things you write about them so well that one would want to know more about it and maybe get themselves the same, they are that lovely.
    I want to win this because the stuff you find out and write, are in my opinion, most unique of all. More the reason to keep coming back to your blog.
    And also how you get creative with the simple posts you write, like the one you recently wrote about November. Your posts leave a smile on one’s face. Your perspective is very different and likable.
    Your illustrations, yes illustrations, one would read your posts just because of that, that’s what really caught my eye in the first place ;D

    Need I say more? ;)

  5. Hi,
    Congrats on the milestone !! It is a huge achievement :D I am here through Magali’s mention on your pic on IG and yet to explore your blog but just reading about the gifts in this giveaway makes me wanna surf through the whole thing right away ;) unfortunately that’s not possible at the moment but I will go through it all !! All the best for the years to come and best wishes Christmas :)

  6. Ok so – hii ♥. Just the way you right it huh? ^_^
    I came across you on instagram. People I followed liked your pictures ALOT. And then when I stalked you myself, I pretty much knew why. I don’t only like what you write or what you draw but I am also, always mighty impressed with what you recommend and what you buy. It happens to be that we have somewhat similar choices. :)
    BONUS- I draw, calligraph myself. Sad that I cant attach a file here. Might just post something to your twitter? ;)

    Now, FINALLY, coming to what you asked. Christmas is all about spreading smiles, isnt it? You would make me grin the hardestt if I win this, and also, I promise I would make others smile by attaching to your gift cards to others’ gifts. You won’t only make me cheery but also a lot of other people alongside me. MORE THE MERRIER RIGHT? Rest every thing I’ll keep for myself :p

    I would love it if you include certain tutorials in your blog. Like how can I take inspiration from your designs, and do them myself. YAYROANNA. ^_^ ♥

  7. Hi Roanna!

    It’s so cool that you’re having a giveaway! So awesome!

    I love your blog cos of multiple reasons…I think that you have a really good colour sense, so everything on your blog is just so pleasing to look at! Also, you write in a very approachable and friendly manner. And somehow, just somehow, you manage to put up all the stuff I’d like to buy and own myself…so I just love your taste in quirky, small and lovely things.

    All these giveaway items sound rather exciting…I’m loving that you’re leaving some suspense! So here I swear that I’m a cute-sock-wearing, awesomesauce woman who loves making people happy by giving gifts with tags and stickers, so you can be sure that I will use all of these things in the best way possible and make you proud. And who doesn’t love bow tie pins! =P

  8. Omg! First giveaway. Santa, for all the presents you haven’t given me, this is your chance to make up for it. *Narrows her eyes*

    Coming down to why I want to win this?
    Well, the postcards, I’ll be honest – I won’t actually give them away and spread the joy or anything like that. Work desk call for redecoration. There couldn’t be a better way. :)

    Bow-ties, because, YOU KNOW ME AND WHAT I THINK OF THEM. *Lusty eyes*

    Socks, because ho-ho-ho, I want to wear a pwetty dress, and funny clogs and let the adorable print show through it.

    And finally I want a JupiterSkye original. Do you hear me?

    Starting reading this ever since we started interacting in the virtual world. I’m no expert. I don’t know what you should and shouldn’t do with this space. But I love the fact that its so contemporary and un-snooty (not a word, but you know what I mean) in terms of design. The kind of place that knows how to put a smile right back on your face.

    Okay, I’m done ranting now.

    Much love <3

  9. Oh yay, your first giveaway! I’m so happy for you Roanna!
    Just so you know, I’ve always loved the way you write and illustrate and you’re great at it! Ummm, maybe some outfit posts? I’m not sure if you’re comfortable with it but it’s worth a shot! In all honesty, I think you’ll be great at that too!
    PS – I’ve been searching for Christmas gift tags everywhere and these look so cute! I wouldn’t mind them at all! ^_^

  10. Hi Roanna!
    I’ve already had a soft corner for your lovely Jupiter Skye and I’m so happy for your first giveaway!
    I think I should win it because for one, I am already in the Christmas mode and those socks and the bowtie would be perfect to flaunt around :) Second, I’m quite the stationery addict so I would love those Christmas tags for my gifts that go under my tree this year :)


  11. Hello !!
    I must win this because December is my favourite month. It has my birthday, parents’ wedding anniversary and Christmas. And I’m working on all those three days. [ Happily so! :) ]

    Plus I love every single thing you’ve listed.
    I could do with a little loving and gifts (especially when I can add to my socks and stationery collection !) :D

    Love !

  12. Oooooooooh! Ummm Ummm…. I love you and your blog to every colourful dot on this page (so does mum) !!! :) I keep coming back to it because you showcase your talent in a unique and whimsical way, that gives me an instant dose of ‘happy’. I’d like to see you write more and more because I love the way you play with words! mwah!!!

  13. its my first time ever on your blog thanks to my kiddo @mystique_16. Love the blog layout and template that you use (always love text over clear background). Why i want to win the hamper? Well trying the beginners luck ;) hoping to make my xmas more merrier :D. I would love to see posts dedicated to men, that would be more fun to read :D. (followed on twitter: check for @danceeatrepeat and liked your page on fb :D )

  14. Hey, Roanna!!

    Well, I would want to win this giveaway because this is the first one I am participating in, and to be quite honest, because you are my favourite blogger!

    Okay, I am not buttering you for the giveaway as I have always expressed my love for you here and there😀❤️

    And yeah, Also because Christmas has always been very special to me as I have spent 14 years of my life in a convent school.

    Also, I would like to share with you a funny story from my childhood.

    When I was a kid, I used to never go for my brother’s birthday party ( his birthdate is 25th December) as I used to believe that Santa would come to pay me a visit in the night with all the gifts I had asked for.
    My parents did quite a lot of Santa, until I caught them keeping the gifts under my bed!
    Infact, I used to sing ‘jingle bell’ throughout the day just to convince Santa that I was a good kid!😝😝

    I mean, till date, I get all nostalgic when I think of those times.
    So, Christmas holds a really special place in my heart!:D

    Hah..!! You made me reminisce the good old times! :*

    Am I winning it? 😝❤️

    Lots of Love and Regard,
    Prathma Sharma

  15. This is so great. I want to win the giveaway because the day you’ll be announcing it is my mum-dad’s anniversary (I know corny but that’s the first thing that came to my mind on seeing the date). Also because unlike other many people on twitter etc i got no secret santa *puppy eyes* maybe you be mine :D
    All the best for your first giveaway and keep the creativity coming !

  16. Oops! I forgot to mention what more I would like to see on your blog!
    Umm… Actually, I would love to see more personal posts from you as I feel that you create a connect with your reader!
    That too.. A personal connect which is the most important thing for a blogger, I believe!
    So, more personal posts with your perspective on life around you!:D

    Love and more love :P

  17. Hey Roanna,

    It’s December 4th, 6:22pm. I know I’m scraping the deadline but forgive the procrastination.
    I’ve been following your IG account for a quite a while now (you might have noticed my almost stalkerISH habit of liking your pics #erm) but I love the perkiness and quirkiness you add to my life.
    I LOVE pretty things and from a birds eye view lets just say that to me, you live in Wonderland :D

    PS – I’m a sucker for bow tie pins and cherry stickers
