One World One Heart
Last year, I got such joy from participating in One World, One Heart. This year, the event just crept up on me. I didn't realise Lisa was gearing up and getting it all in place until just a couple of days ago. And what an undertaking it is! Lisa Oceandreamer started two years ago, creating a place where bloggers could meet and mingle, offering one another little gifts of something they have made, around Valentine's Day. I participated last year for the first time, and was the lucky recipient of a bunch of beautiful prizes offered by creative bloggers. The giving and receiving of gifts is lovely, but the even greater gift is getting to meet new people, to share interests. Some links made through this mingling last, some are brief "nice to meet you" encounters.
All the details are at the One World One Heart blog. You can participate by offering a giveaway on your own blog, or you can visit any of the participating blogs, leave a comment and be entered in the draw on offer.
This year, I have six items to give away.
Five of them are the product of a long-ago flurry of activity with papier-mache and decoupage. There are two vases and three bowls. You can be pretty sure they are each one-of-a-kind. The sixth item is in the background of the photo... It's a cream tweedy-flecked little lap-blanket which I've just finished knitting. It could be a baby-blanket either!
Leave a comment on this post in order to enter the draw for the giveaway. I will make the draw and post names of winners as close as possible to the date on which One World, One Heart officially ends - 12th February. You don't have to have a blog to enter. You don't have to be particpating with your own giveaway either. But you do have to make it possible for me to contact you if you win, which means leaving me either a link to an active blog, or an email address.
Ok.... Let's have fun! I'm so looking forward to meeting new bloggers and saying "hello" as I pick random participants to visit. As the count is now over 400(!!!!), I doubt I'll get to visit everyone, but I'll try!
Welcome if you haven't visited here before. I'm so glad you dropped by!
Added Wednesday 28th... My link's just been added to the list on the One World One Heart blog today, and visitors have started to arrive in numbers. I'm away for a few days, so won't be visiting too many of you until next week, but I'm really glad you've come over, and I'll try to visit over the coming week... and beyond the draw too.
Added 12th February..... Comments are now closed, and HERE is where I announce the winners. Thanks everybody for coming by, and hope we'll meet again in the Blogosphere. Pop back any time!
