I'm glad you came to visit my blog for the 2011 One World One Heart blog event. Click on the logo above to see the list of participants and information on how to join. Last year there were over 1000 participants! This is the fifth and final year that Lisa Swifka, A Whimsical Bohemian, will be hosting this huge event. Thank you Lisa for providing us all with the fun and opportunity to meet and get to know lots of fellow creative bloggers from around world.
Another feature of the event is to post a giveaway on your blog to encourage comments so you can meet more of the other bloggers.
I was a happy participant in 2009 and 2010. If you clicked to see my posts for those years, you may have noticed a trend! While I did not make postcards this year, I am continuing to include a bunch of yarns in my giveaway.
Here are the "door prize" items one lucky winner will receive from me this year:
I love couching yarns for embellishment on quilted items. I have included them in several giveaways that I have done throughout my two years of blogging. The yarn package consists of one yard lengths of about 30+ different yarns. They are great for embellishing quilts, crazy quilting, scrapbooking, etc.
In December, Karen of Sew and Sow Life had a giveaway for a little drawstring bag that she made after seeing a tutorial at Quiltcetera and I won it! The little thing is just so cute and the tutorial makes it so easy that I decided to make one for you!
One of the giveaways I entered in the fall included a quilted eyeglass case. While I wasn't a winner, Becky of The Quilting Booklady wrote a few weeks later to tell me that she found another eyeglass case that she had made and would I like to have it! I said, of course, and it's been protecting my reading glasses in my little back pack ever since. It's so easy to make, so I made one to include with the drawstring purse and yarns.
So, that's my offering for the OWOH event for this year.
Just a few little simple rules to follow if you want a chance to win:
1. Leave a comment on this post. Comments on other posts are always welcome, but for this giveaway, only comments left on this post will count.
2. I need to be able to contact you if you are the winner. If your blogger profile does not lead to your email address, you must include your email address in your comment. Anonymous comments will only be counted if there is an email address included in the comment. Any comments without any form of contact available at all will not be included in the drawing.
3. The event ends on Thursday, February 17. I will use random.org to choose the winner after midnight, U.S. EST, at the end of February 17, and then I will email the winner.
Have fun and Good luck!
