One World, One Heart

This giveaway is now closed. Pumpkin is the winner! Thanks to everyone who visited me!

Hi everyone. If you're here for the "One Heart, One World" giveaway, then you're in the right place. You may even want to join me on the Magic Carpet Ride! Click over to OHOW!

This global event is organized by Lisa at A Whimsical Bohemian. It's a way to encourage bloggers to meet new online friends as well as enter some great giveaways! It began in 2007 and continues to grow by leaps and bounds every year with over 900 bloggers participating last year.

She explains the purpose of the carnival much better than I. Lisa says, "This is more than wanting to win something.......that is only the the end it's about finding kindred spirits. Someone who may be fairly new to blogging, not sure how to navigate, find others and have others find them....Some are long time bloggers and in some cases well known in the blogging community. Whatever the case it brings all of them together."

I began my blog on December 13, 2005 with this post. In another post, I talk about the fact that I am NOT forgetful! I hope you'll join me in getting to know one another.

While you're here, leave a comment on this post to enter my giveaway. I want to come visit you if I am able. I plan to get to see as many One World, One Heart posts as I can. Even if you're not participating in the event, if you have a blog, please enter my giveaway and come back and see me! Be sure to leave an email where I can reach you if you win.
No, I didn't forget to tell you what I'm giving away. I'm just creating some suspense. I have a book (yes, it's new, not used) entitled Talk to the Hand by Lynn Truss which I will send to one special commenter on this post. This giveaway ends when OWOH ends on February 15, and I will use to generate the number of the winner. Have fun visiting other blogs!

  73. I would love to win a giveaway on my 24th birthday on feb 14 :) I've just discovered blogging...i know i grew up under a rock. What a fantastic way to connect with other scrapbookers. As a nurse I work wonky hours, and it's hard to co-ordinate with other crafty people. Keep up the awesome work...I'll have to start blogging my projects so I can share my work.

    happy v-day!
