Excitement Plus - a "Pride and Prejudice" Giveaway!

So I've been thinking about hosting a blog giveaway for some time and realised that with all my thinking and not much doing, it's been a long time between giveaways.  But that situation is easily rectified with a Pride and Prejudice giveaway!  What could you win?  I was a little undecided about what the prize should be, so I thought I would let the winner decide.  Up for grabs is your choice of a Darcy or an Elizabeth P&P text brooch.  That's right, the winner will get to choose one of these beautiful brooches!

What do you have to do to win one of these brooches?  As is usual for me, there are a number of ways to enter this giveaway:

Mandatory Entry:
Look through either my Etsy or Madeit stores and tell me which is your current favourite Pride and Prejudice creation (feel free to look through the "sold" section too).

Optional Entries:
1. Let me know your favourite Pride and Prejudice character or quote and which brooch you would choose if you are the winner.
2. Become a follower of my blog.
3. Become a liker of my Facebook page and let me know.
4. Blog, Tweet or mention on Facebook about this giveaway. Don't forget to leave me a link to your mention!  If you do all three social media mentions, please leave a separate comment for each.

Please leave a SEPARATE COMMENT for each entry as well as a way for me to contact you should you be the winner.
This giveaway will run until midnight, 31 August 2011 (Australian Eastern Standard Time) and is open to entrants WORLDWIDE.  The winner will be chosen via Random.org.

  14. My favourite P&P creation from your shop is the brooch with the teal dangly bead, altough I am not wildly enthusiastic about the idea of cutting up books to create art....but I can see that the end justifies the means. I think it is because I am an English teacher...

    Have blogged about your giveaway, it fitted in nicely with my Jane Eyre film review.

    BTW, my sister can raise one eyebrow like Lizzie does (the Lizzie in the photo above) but try as I might I can only raise both. Hmph.


    If I win, you can contact me through etsy, bananaorangeapple.

  15. The females in our family LOVE Jane Austin! My favorite character in P&P is Darcy of course and I just have to say that Colin Firth is the perfect Mr. Darcy! Many quotes in this book that are memorable...Love the one about closets being a "happy thought, indeed" but I'm picking this one: "I cannot fix on the hour, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun." I love all your P&P items!

  20. My favorite is the opening line:

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

    And I'd choose the Darcy broach. Can it come with a wet-shirted Colin Firth?

  51. I'm entering and hoping to win for my daughter. She adores Mr. Darcy and Miss Bennett right now and often relates situations in life to them... which I don't mind because I fell in love with the book at about the same age (16). :)

    In your shops, I do like this brooch:
    http://www.etsy.com/transaction/48247631

    and I like the text with Mr. Darcy included. :)

  56. My favorite Pride and Prejudice creation was the Mr. Darcy ring that was sold recently. I also love the Baroque Orchid Swarovski Earrings.

  57. My favorite Pride and Prejudice character besides my sweet Mr. Darcy (lol), would be Charlotte Lucas, Elizabeth's friend. I feel bad for her in a way; that she's viewed as plain by some and feels pressured to be married already. I love how she takes it though; she's determined to be happy and is content and that says a lot. She seems to be a true friend, without jealously towards Elizabeth, which would have been easy considering who Charlotte wound up marrying.
