What is One World One Heart? Well in the words of its creator Lisa Oceandreamer :
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. Last years event had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it……friendships that are still going strong a year later.
We had a strong showing the first year for sure, and now this year(2008) we have just about tripled.
This is more than wanting to win something…….that is only the means…….in the end it’s about finding kindred spirits. Someone 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 art 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 and more. It transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, religious beliefs……it’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. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become. This year I created this blog especially for OWOH – it will remain up all year and beyond.
My heartfelt thanks go out to all who chose to board the Love Train.
So there you have it.

I saw so much that I wanted to sign up for a chance to win & I figured I better give something away too. I didn’t really have anything ready to participate in this HUGE giveaway so I searched through all my stuff & found the pinkest stuff I had to kinda go with the whole hearts n valentines theme. Anybody who comments on this post (if it’s not too late!) will have a chance to win my little witch on a stick (18 inches long & made of paper mache) & a set of eight Witch of Hearts notecards.
