The One World One Heart event was started in 2007 by Lisa Swifka and she states that it started with 85 - 90 participants and that last year the number of participants had swelled to just over 900! And I'm positive the numbers will swell yet again this year. I know I'm adding to it by 1.
Lisa says "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."
The only rules for a chance to win this giveaway are simple: one post per person and you most post to this thread to be counted. I do need an address to get hold of the winner so please leave your email address and if you use this type of format bobsmith (at!) yahoo.com it keeps the nasty spam bots from picking you up.
This event is Worldwide and anyone can enter! The event started this morning (Jan. 25) and continues until midnight Feb.14 with the winner announced Feb. 15.

My giveaway is one of my fabric collage covered journals (this is a composition notebook). Even the inside covers are covered in fabric. Such a pretty place to keep your notes, thoughts and dreams!
