One world, one heart...


Lisa Oceandreamer of Heart of the Nest and Imagination Cafe is hosting the 2nd annual ONE World-ONE Heart Event, starting Feb.1 and ending late night on Feb.13, with the winners of the artworks being announced on Feb. 14.

The intention with this is to get people to look at people's blogs, and the catch is that one person who comments on this blog entry will win a prize... I will choose one name from the commentors on 13th of February, announce the winner the 14th and send this person a package 18th of February. (CET)

Every person is eligible - you don't need to participate in OWOH, you don't need to have a blog, you don't need to live in Europe. Just you have a mailing address, so that I can send you a package.

I am a little late in joining the fun - first I didn't feel I was properly prepared, then I surfed the participating sites and the atmosphere is magical... I found some things I very much would like to get, and I joined some of them, and I just wanted to join the fun of giving!

I would have wanted to be properly prepared but now I'm jumping straight in.

It's going to be a pair of pink hearty socks, women's medium size, of Finnish wool (I have personally known the sheep who have given the wool and I can promise no sheep were harmed during the process ;-), plant dyed by yours truly (again, with no animals harmed during the process - no cochenill.) and knit by me. These socks can't be washed in a machine, unless you want felted slippers for your 5-years-old, but the color will not bleed what ever you do.

There will also be a couple more things in the package, but I won't spoil the surprise by telling you what they are.

P.S.
The first comments came when this blog entry was still about me NOT joining the fun. This blog entry has changed very much after that.

P.P.S. There are other give-aways going on... among others Jan gives away two lovely thailandic scarfs and Christine gives away a lovely spring bag :-)

P.P.P.S. We have a dog - so the socks will be of also dog hair ;-) (That should wash off... :-)) But if you are allergic to animals, you might need to be careful when opening the package.

P.P.P.P.S. I wish I could give everyone who comments a pair of socks :´)

I live in Canada on the west coast where it is being unusually cold and sneauxy. (We are not allowed to say the "s" word in this house.) Warm wool socks would sure have come in handy today when I was forced to wait in a looooong line outside the passport building. They wouldn't even allow us to wait in the lobby, but let's not talk about that!

Anyway, please count me in. I am participating in OWOH too. :)

Deb Lewis said...

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. This way, everyone is a winner.

I hope to get my name drawn at least once.
