One World- One Heart Project Giveaway







An art friend of mine just mentioned a wonderful event called "One World-One Heart". It is a blog-wide giveaway event coordinated by Lisa Oceandreamer. 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. This excited me and I vowed to participate in the project this year so I am posting my giveaways. The winners will be announced on February 14th.

I have decided to offer an altered library pocket coil book that I have designed especially for this project. Here are samples from a book that I created for a friend. The photos show the entire book which is made from library pockets as well as the library cards/tags within the pockets. The one I create for this project will be different but I wanted to give you an idea of what you'd be winning.

All you have to do is leave me a comment on this posting and your name will automatically be entered to win.

I love your work and would love to be included in your draw thanks.

sandee said...

This is a great idea! However, I just moved across country and have most of my stuff in storage. What I would like to do, is go into as many of the blogs as I can and sign in. If my name gets pulled by anyone as a winner, I will donate $100 to AIDS Foundation in memory of my brother. If my name gets selected more than once, I will up the ante an additional $10 every time it gets pulled (greedy I know, but one can dream!!!) If my name is not pulled by anyone, I will still make a $50 donation. Tis way, everyone is a winner.
