One World, One Heart Giveaway

Lisa Oceandreamer does wonderful things at her blog, Heart of the Nest, and one of them is the bringing together of people from all over blogland in this event.

She invites bloggers to sign up to One World, One Heart, to give away something - preferably but not necessarily, handmade. You can read all about it Here .

I thought I'd like to have something to give away, but my time is short these days, and I thought I wouldn't get around to making something, and then, today, it struck me that I could offer something I've already half-made, by gathering some of my poems and a couple of small stories (some previously unpublished) into a little hand-made book. Here it is:

It's quite plain, but is embellished here and there with gilt decorations, and a little colour where appropriate. It is a one-off, so if you would like to have it, then join in by putting your name in a comment. The draw to select a winner will be made on Valentine's Day, February 14th, and I will contact the winner for details of where to mail the book.

Then go and check out the huge list of other participants whose blogs you can visit to put your name in the draw for their artwork and other items. And having visited once, the idea is that we get to know a whole lot of other bloggers through this event. Enjoy!

Greenish Lady I still haven't found your REAL name or would you like Greenish Lady to stay your REAL name - there is nothing unreal about it as it comes from Irland now I come to think about it.

We are in the same business too I see. Counsellor, Facilitator .....

I would love to be entered in your give-a-way. Thank you for visiting my 'humble' (as yet) blogs. I still have much to learn and am still somewhat stumbling at the moment - as my old granny used to say - practice makes perfect.

Hope to talk to you again soon
