One World - One Heart

2/14/08 9:00 am CST: The contest is now closed. I will be drawing a winner shortly. Look at this post for details. Thanks to everyone who entered & visited & prompted me to expand my world just a little bit more! *grin*

Here's a little bit about the event, directly from One World - One Heart's website: " I created this event in 2007. The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. Last years event had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong a year later.
We had a strong showing the first year for sure, and now this year(2008) we have just about tripled.
This is more than wanting to win something.......that is only the means.......in the end it's about finding kindred spirits. Someone may be fairly new to blogging, not sure how to navigate, find others and have others find them....Some are long time blogg
ers and in some cases well known in the art community. Whatever the case it brings all of them together. This is an INTERNATIONAL event that has and had participants from the US, Canada, France, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England,Wales and more. It transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, religious beliefs......it's a coming together like the giant community we are on this planet. If only it took a simple giveaway to create PEACE everywhere, in the mean time here we give from our hearts. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become. This year I created this blog especially for OWOH - it will remain up all year and beyond.
My heartfelt thanks go out to all who chose to board the Love Train.
XOXO

I've elected to participate & as such, I have selected the following as a gift to share with the world ... i.e. one of you. And by world, I mean WORLD, so please do enter, wherever you live! (I know it's not handmade, but I really really really want to participate, and quickly, and I have nothing handmade just sitting around to gift to someone!)


The drawing for the winner of the prize will take place on Valentines Day, a day of love (regardless if you've got a partner to share it with or not!), so hop on the Love Train, leave me a comment (and make sure I can track back to you, if you win!), and do a couple of acts of kindness today!
