Riding the Magic Carpet to One World One Heart

UPDATE – At long last I have returned from the abyss, and breaking all rules, I have completed my draw a month late.  But, it is done, and these two little hearts are on their way to Tina and Maria.  Congratulations Ladies!  And many thanks of all of you who dropped by my blog.  Once my life settles down again, I’ll be able to post more frequently than once in a blue moon…..(more on that later.)  And I hope to see you all again soon!

OK…so “Last Minute Martha” strikes again – I’m joining in on the fun of One World One Heart just in the nick of time….again!  Nothing like a deadline stretched to the very last moment.  Here’s the deal in the creator, Lisa Swifka’s own words:

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. 2007 had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it……friendships that are still going strong.
We had a strong showing the first year for sure, and then in 2008 we had just about tripled that number. In 2009 there were 911 participants, to say I was amazed is an understatement. 28 countries were represented in the 2009 event as well.
This is more than wanting to win something…….that is only the means…….in 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. 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, Slovenia 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. We are not solving the worlds problems nor are we curing anything nor are we changing the world. We are merely generating a closer community between humans through blogging. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become.

So with that said, I am excited to participate along with nearly 1100 others this year in something with such a great intent – to bring people together.  This year I am giving away two items to two winners.

They are handmade glass hearts on steel bales with matching ribbon to use if the recipients choose to.  They can be worn as a necklace strung on the ribbon, or hung as a small ornament in a window or rear-view mirror.  Or they could be used as a zipper pull or a component on a bracelet….really anthing one might imagine.  My intent – to share love through this event.  To enter – here are the rules as outlined by the event:
1. Each person must leave a comment to be eligible to win. – One comment per person.
2. In your comment, please leave a link back to your blog so I can contact you and so I can visit your blog too. An email address would be good to to contact you about shipping should you be one of the lucky winners.
3.  Draw will be made using a random number generator on February 15th.

Good luck and I look forward to meeting you on this magic carpet ride!

    I got one of your kissy fish last year and LOVED it at Artfest. Last year I did OWOH too, but could not manage it this year. I hope to win here and to see you at Artfest this year again and trade. I am greedy. I love your charms.
