One World One Heart - Happy 100 Posts For Me!

This year I'll be joining in the One World One Heart event hosted by the wonderful Lisa Oceandreamer. I participated in it last year & found it so rewarding. It was fun to get to know everyone; I met bloggers I may have never found. I was just getting into blogging regularly so I felt like I was putting myself out there & it was a little frightening but I enjoyed it so much. If you're not familiar with it, bloggers from all over the world giveaway a piece of their work, something from their store, just some sort of really nice gift. It's wonderful to see the outpouring. Here's part of what's on the OWOH blog:

What IS ONE World-ONE Heart?It is a blog-wide giveaway event. The original idea behind this 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. Last years event had nearly 100 participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong.

Go to the OWOH blog & on the side bar you'll see all the participants. Have fun in blog land! I'm going to join in in conjunction to my 100th post. I'm giving away the bracelet below. Yea, Happy Anniversary to my little blog. I've so enjoyed meeting & making great friends. I'm opening this up to anyone who would like to sign up. You don't have to have a blog, but please leave me an email address so I can contact you if you win. I'll be closing the contest on Wednesday, February 13th late in the evening (somewhere around 11PM EST). I'll post the winner Thursday February 14, hopefully in the afternoon. (By the way, if you're family, you can't enter. You know I'll make you whatever you want :)


Here's to my next 100 posts.


The bracelet is made of Czech firepolish crystals, coral, & a carved cinnabar flower. The chain & clasp are sterling silver.



To those of you that are first time visitors, thanks for coming over to celebrate.




EDITED: This has been so wonderful to meet so many bloggers. It's gonna take me awhile, but I'm planning on visiting all of you. When I have a down in the dumps day, I'm going to come back to this post. Your comments mean so much to me. Thanks :)

I've decided to add another giveaway to this post. I've been making some Valentine clip magnets for the big day. I'll make a set of 3 for the second winner. This is just a sampling of what I've made. I'll post them when I make them!

sandee said...

This is a great idea! However, I just moved across country and have most of my stuff in storage. What I would like to do, is go into as many of the blogs as I can and sign in. If my name gets pulled by anyone as a winner, I will donate $100 to AIDS Foundation in memory of my brother. If my name gets selected more than once, I will up the ante an additional $10 every time it gets pulled (greedy I know, but one can dream!!!) If my name is not pulled by anyone, I will still make a $50 donation. This way, everyone is a winner.

I hope to get my name drawn at least once.
