One-World-One Heart Giveaway

My first give-away, I'm so excited!!! I decided to participate in the One-World-One-Heart Give-Away this year.

Please visit One-World-One Heart to read all about it. It's a great way to meet other bloggers and artisans from around the world. Here's some information.

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.

I'm giving away (and this was hard - I love this piece!!) my Paris "Joyeux Noel" Ornament. I hand stitched it using Gentle Art Sampler & Weeks Dye Works Threads on a very pretty kelly green hand dyed linen. The back is a pretty faux suede blue. It can also be used as a door or cabinet hanger - use your imagination - it can go any where and can be displayed all year long.

I've only got one rule - You must have an active blog to participate. All you have to do is leave a comment to this post. Tell me your name, where your from and your blog name so I can visit :) I'll draw the winner the evening of February 13 around 7 PM EST. Good Luck! Thanks for coming to visit :)

SuzyQSparkles said...

In the past week I've had SO MANY images of the Eifle Tower appearing before me I'm starting to wonder if I will find myself there one day? I've never longed to go there, but, lately, it just keeps showing up. If I win this, I guess it will certainly be a sign!

Angela said...
