One World One Heart


I am joining in on the fun of One World One Heart.  Lisa started this back in 2007 and each year it just gets bigger and bigger!  Here is what Lisa says on her blog about the event:  


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.

We had a strong showing the first year for sure, and then in 2008 we had just about tripled that number. In 2009 there were 911 participants, to say I was amazed is an understatement. 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. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become.

As for me, I have been thinking and thinking about what I would offer as a prize.  Since I am a scrapbooker, my prize will be scrapbooking related.  I am going to give away these tags to a lucky person who will be able to use them in their art.

and to the winner of these tags I will include an 8x8 scrapbook for you to be able to create your own pages AND I will also include paper and embellishments!!!

All you need to do to win my prize is leave a comment to this posting on my blog.  Also leave your e-mail address or your blog so that I can contact you if you are the winner!  On February 15, I will choose a winner through  I will announce the winner here on my blog and also contact the winner via e-mail or blog.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond or I will choose another winner.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

A lot going on...

WHEW!!!  I can't believe this month is almost over already!  Where did it go?  Life has really gotten in my way of getting crafty things done!  So I am going to use this post as catch up since the beginning of the month.  My husband is making a lot of the stickles organizers that I have posted above.  I am really proud of him!  I am so glad that he finally has found an outlet for him to help him get rid of the stress of being a paramedic.  It is a hard job and you see alot of things that you normally would never see and it can weigh on your heart, soul and mind.  Here are a set of shelves that he built for me to use in my ArtHaven....

I have been able to do a few things scrappy wise....

This is of Ariel when we were having a snowball fight in July, 2009 at Snowy Range in Wyoming, while we were on vacation.

This is a card that I just threw together for my yahoo group Scrapbookingfriendsclub for a monthly card swap...

Well that's it for now :o)

Till next time....
