Are you ready for OWOH 2010?!


For those of you who don't know what One World One Heart is...
It was created in 2007 by Lisa Swifka of A whimsical Bohemian blog (see flyer)

taken directly from her site:
"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."

So how do you participate in one world one heart?
1. have a blog
2. set up a giveaway, it must start on January 25th and be linked directly to Lisa's blog. While most items are handmade, Lisa is now opening this year to non-handmade items...cds, dvds, books, something vintage, etc.
3. Look through all the blogs, stop by...leave comments and find new favorites to read!
4. When the OWOH ends, you announce your winner and send them your prize!!

If you don't have a blog, you can still enter giveaways...but it's nice to give too ;)

I participated last year and gave away an original Artist Trading Card (ATC) of one of my aliens and an envelope filled with collage images and beautiful scrap papers!!

But I will be keeping my prize(s) a mystery till then.
Possiblities are handmade Jewelry by me (most likely), ATCs, sea glass and beads!!

So make sure you check back ;)
