Pi Necklace Giveaway from Boutique Academia (CLOSED)

I know, everywhere else on the craft blogs, you're seeing St. Patrick's Day and Easter crafts popping up...we'll here at Helping Little Hands we've got to get ready for Pi-Day first.  We're getting ready a little early this year, since baby #4 is coming just before Pi-Day...and to make sure you've got enough time to get ready yourself.  Never heard of Pi-Day?  It's March 14th (3-14) every year and is the day when math lovers everywhere celebrate the number Pi...as in 3.14159... or the ratio of a circle's circumference to it's diameter.

There are all sorts of ways to celebrate Pi-Day...the yummiest of which is eating some pie.  I'll be sharing some other fun ways to celebrate throughout the rest of the week (and you can check out my Pi-Day archives for things we'd done in the past), but to kick things off, we've got a giveaway!

Maile from Boutique Academia is giving away one of her beautiful Digits of Pi Necklaces.


I've shown mine off before...

...and I love that it's versatile enough to be worn with a T-shirt or a classy dress or anything in between.

If you haven't been to Boutique Academia, you should check it out.  As Maile puts it, she designs "smart-and-beautiful accessories for women in science & technology. Stuff for geeks with taste. "

There are three easy ways to enter the giveaway for one Digits of Pi Necklace.  Please leave a separate comment for each entry.  You can enter one way or all three.  You have until March 5th at midnight to enter.  Then we'll select one random winner, and you should receive your necklace in time to wear it for Pi Day.  (If you live outside of the US, you can definitely enter...but it might not arrive in time depending on shipping times.)
  • Become a follower of Helping Little Hands via GFC or Facebook.  (Or if you already are a follower just tell me in your comment.) 
  • Head over to Boutique Academia and check out Maile's shop.  Then come back here and tell us what your favorite product is.
  • "Like" Boutique Academia on Facebook and come back here and leave a comment.
Thanks so much for entering!  And be sure to stop by the rest of the week for more fun with Pi.

  23. While the Pi Necklace has been on my list of "items to buy" at Boutique Academia for a while, my favourite item of theirs is in fact the Neuron Pendant, which I have already purchased. Having had brain surgery, it has, erm, sentimental value.

  51. Hi,

    Having looked at the shop I am torn between the anatomical heart just for the nerdy antidote to 'cute' jewellery and the neuron earrings for my first degree (neuroscience) that I never really get to use!!

    But pretty much ALL of it should come home!

    ReplyDelete

  60. Thanks for the help on commenting. Apparently it just wouldn't work in googlechrome, but I am able to comment in explorer. I love your blog, it has helped me with many different handmedown projects.
    Love the pi necklace! Would love to give it as a gift to my friend who is getting married this year. She is planning a mathematically themed wedding. She celebrates pi day every year with her pi pie dish that has the numbers of pi written around the outer rim.

  61. I checked out Boutique Academia's website. And, I truly like the DNA earrings and the normal coffee cozy. Too cute! And, of course, I am a fan of the pi necklace - I'm a math teacher so I love anything Pi related! :0)
