ONE World ONE Heart

I found this wonderful concept and site while doing some blog surfing. A woman by the name of Lisa Swifka, a whimsical bohemian, created and hosts the One World-ONE Heart. Bloggers from all over the world join together. This is a once a year event. There is a list of participating bloggers who are doing give aways during the event. You have a chance to win prizes from every blog you visit. The blog addresses will stay available for 6 months at the close of the give away so you can go back again and again to check out all the blogs and bloggers. What a great way to visit and meet new friends from all over the world! Currently there are close to 800 bloggers participating.

I am participating for the 1st time this year.

How does it work? All you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post, and only this post, by midnight EST on Feb 11th. I will chose 3 winners via a random number generator on Feb 12th. I will notify the winners via email so please make sure I have a valid email address to contact you if you are a lucky winner. You do not need to have a blog to participate, just a valid email address.
I look forward to meeting all of you and hope to start friendships with fellow artists, or those interested in art or my blog.

To see the rest of the participants please click on the logo in the right sidebar.
I have a option on the right sidebar that allows you to follow my blog. If you follow me, visitors may click on your icon as a follower and it will take them to your blog - another way to keep connecting with new friends. You can also subscribe. This allows you to be anonymous, no one else knows you are following my blog. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your stay and come back again.

All of the prizes are hand made little quilts. They are created with Shiva sticks (an oil based paint) on muslin, stenciling and light quilting. The decorative design was created with my specialty stitches on my machine. Each has a sleeve on the back so they can be hung with a small dowel. They will be given away by size and drawing number.
