One World One Heart

 Finally! Hello my lovelies, I've been meaning to write this particular blog for about a month now. This post will continue to remain at the top of my blog until February 14th, which is the end of this wonderful Blog Exchange! Let me explain.

One World One Heart is a giveaway event to bring bloggers together from around the world who may ordinarily never 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 along the way!

For the full story of OWOH please visit A Whimsical Bohemian

Technically this event started January 25th, so I'm really behind! I was informed of it by Theresa because she thought this was something I'd love to do - And she was right! Yet January 25th came and went and with me having so many different projects on the go, I completely forgot about it. I was SO upset. Then wonderful Stanza asked me if I had heard about it and told me that the date had been extended to add your blog! So of course, that cut-off day was today. Loverly. hehe. Again, been so busy. I'll be writing more blogs about what I've been doing shortly!

But, to get back to OWOH - This event is amazing and I'm so excited that I'm able to participate in it despite being incredibly late! I love finding new blogs to read, meeting new people, and discovering the trials and tribulations others go through in our crazy journeys through life.

So Welcome to my blog! I hope all my new visitors enjoy my odd sense of humour and updates on the projects I work on!

And you're probably all wondering what in the world I'm giving away? Well, the theme of this year's event is "Magic Carpet Ride". I have absolutely nothing that goes along with that lol, but hey, while you're on a "Magic Carpet Ride" you'll be sure to see some pretty flowers, no?

So I'll be giving away 3- 8x10 photos :)

Photo 1 - Clematis

Photo 2 - Rose of Sharon

Photo 3 - Smurf Village

And how do you win these photos? By commenting on this blog post in this format:

Comment about how much you love my blog (LOL - okay fine, that one is optional!)
Your photo choice (Photo 1, 2, or 3)  
Your name, blog link and email address.

One comment per person. All comments must be in by 11:59pm EST February 14th.

The 3 winners will be chosen by on February 15th.

Thank you all so much for stopping by my blog, and I hope you stick around and read awhile :)

Birgit said...

Hi there,

So -- are you dancing the jig right now? One day you must post a movie clip of you doing so. ;)

Anyway, thanks for the chance to win three of your awesome photos. For me, it's definitely the "Smurf village" (love the name!).

If a glass bead necklace sounds good, you might want to visit my blog. It would be a pleasure to welcome you there. :)
