    One World - One Heart Give Away

    Good morning to all. I am pleased to announce that I am participating in the One World-One Heart Give Away for 2009.

    If you're not familiar with this event, you can read up on it HERE.

    EDIT: Where are my manners - geeezzzzz! A special thanks and recognition to Lisa Swifka of A Whimsical Bohemian for putting this together and for keeping it straight!

    In short, the event is intended to bring people around the world together, through the blogging community, and to hopefully create new and lasting friendships. Offering a gift is not only an wonderful incentive but also serves as a fun way of saying THANK YOU for taking the time, and for being part of this wonderful event.

    Be sure to visit the Gypsy Caravan participant list (I'm #98), then visit their blogs, and enter for their drawings also. (The Gypsy Caravan topped out at 911 participants! That is AMAZING!!!!)

    So, shall we get to it????

    Anyone with an active blog, living on this planet. You do not need to be hosting a OWOH give away yourself.

    Just leave a comment (on this post) for a chance to win one of the three prizes that I am offering. Be sure to leave me a way to either link back you your blog or otherwise contact you.

    You will be eligible for one of the three gifts listed below.

    PRIZE #1 - Cell Phone Pouch. This is a pattern that I designed. I have hand embroidered and embellished the crazy quilted front of this pouch.

    The back is made out of this beautiful rich brown embroidered silk.

    The pouch will also have a black cotton lining and coordinating strap. The finished dimensions are approximately 6 by 4 1/2 by x 3 1/2.

    This is my own personal cell phone pouch. I made it 3 years ago and I use it every day. Needless to say, its durable and yours will be too. I have emptied the contents out to give you an idea of just how much "stuff" you can carry in it.

    PRIZE #2 - Fat Quarter packet. Included are a set of five, nice, quality cotton fabrics in coordinating colors, with Betty Boop being the focus fabric in theme suited for Valentine's.

    PRIZE #3 - Journal and Embellishments assortment. Included is 2 resin deco faces (profile 2"); 3 sheets of card stock: fawn, tundra, blue/gray; 10 sheets of regular colored paper (2 each of): green, blue, pink, yellow, purple; 2 charm chains with o-rings and clips, and all of the other embellishments shown here.

    I will draw the winning names/comments on February 11th, via a Random Number Generator;
    I will post your name here and the prize won on February 12th; and
    I will contact you and I will mail your prize to you.

    EASY, HUH????

    EDIT: I would like to apologize for not being able to respond to each of you personally but the response to my give aways has been so over-whelming that I must do it here.

    Please accept my sincerest THANKS for taking the time to stop by and to enter, I am truly flattered!

    Until Next time...Happy Needling!!!
