One World One Heart Event!

Comments are closed.
Thank you to all of you that visited.  
It was nice to meet all 871 of you!
You can see who the winners are by visiting here.

This post will remain on top until February 17th.
Don't forget to comment to enter your name in the drawing!

Lisa 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.

There was a strong showing the first year for sure, and then in 2008 had just about tripled that number. In 2009 there were 911 participants and 28 countries were represented in the 2009 event as well.
This is more than wanting to win something.......that is only the 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.

This is an INTERNATIONAL event that has and had participants from the US, Canada, France, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England,Wales, Slovenia and more. It transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, religious's a coming together like the giant community we are on this planet. If only it took a simple giveaway to create PEACE everywhere, in the mean time here we give from our hearts. We are not solving the worlds problems nor are we curing anything nor are we changing the world. We are merely generating a closer community between humans through blogging.

This is the 5th and final year of OWOH so thank you Lisa for another great event for the chance to meet new people and gain new friends.

Since it is the last year of this event I decided to have
Leave a comment to let me know you were here. 
I promise to go visit your blog too.  This is a international event so anyone can enter.  I will draw the winners (there will be 2) on February 18th and I will let the winners know via email.  Thanks for stopping by, it's nice to meet you!

My first giveaway are some delicate paper roses.  I just started making these so you get my first set!  They measure approximately 2 inches. 

My other giveaway are some grungy quilled flowers and a dragonfly.
They also measure approximately 2 inches.

See you soon!
