11th giveaway- One World One Heart

This post will remain at the top of the blog until Feb 14, 2010. Please Scroll down for more postings.
Good-bye MOM! We all love you, see everything you can see on your magic carpet ride, magical journeys await you now. When we meet again I want to hear all about them. You are always in our hearts, now and forever.xoxox
*update 02/02/10* I have decided to draw two people with the random number generator on the 14th,  and depending on how many more people I get, I may even add another.
*update 02/04/10* I am going to add another (3rd) giveaway at 150 comments, if I reach that.
Thank you all so much for your kindness and heartfelt words, they have helped me lift up and out of what is a sad, sad time for myself and my family. Blessings all over all of you...and thank you.
*02/07/10* I am having so much fun and the people I have met, are amazing and so wonderful. I am not getting anything done and my house looks like a tornado ran through and I could care less, my magic carpet is zooming through blog land as fast as it can. I am getting close to 200 responses and if that hapens I will add another goddess to the giveaway. That will make 4 in the giveaway. I hope you will understand that these are something that I do not rush through and I weave my love in to each turn of the wire and each image I make out of the clay, if you can bare to wait till it is finished, add your name to the list. 
Thank you for this magical mystical tour, it is making my heart so light, I needed that. That Lisa is a brilliant woman, thank ou so much Lisa for your precious time.
Again...good luck and blessings all over you all.
*02/11/10* Thank you so so much for all you have said sent and conveyed to me over these wonderful days of OWOH. I am in awe of the compassion and grace that abound in blog land. I am adding a 5th goddess to the draw. My light has been re-kindled. May the blessings abound for you all. It is so very very nice to meet you all.

If you click on the picture it will take you there by a "magic carpet" which is the theme this year.
And to all of the other blogs involved in this world wide love fest. The blogs will be on the right hand side at Whimsical Bohemian.

Welcome to all, from One World One Heart which will now be known as OWOH.
I am so glad you have stumbled upon my little place on the web. Welcome!
To my regular pretties -you get to play too.
I am a little late at jumping on this glorious bandwagon, but I wanted to get the 10th giveaway under my belt, family matters, and I just found out this last week. On something so marvelous where people meet and talk from all over the world, better late than never I say!
To the right you can see Madi's is getting in the spirit and wrapped herself in the magic carpet. She is always ready for a new adventure.

Lisa Swifka at a Whimsical Bohemian http://awhimsicalbohemian.typepad.com/a_whimsical_bohemian/
started this in 2007 with a few blogs and it has grown beyond belief to over 900 blogs this year and last. Please join in there is still time. Feb.08, 10 is the deadline.
I am honored to be a part of this and I do it in honor of my mother in law Rosalie who is dying.
Rosalie has been a friend and a beautiful influence in my life for many many years and what Lisa is doing would be something she would love. Rosalie was also a kindred spirit and could needle point, embroider, crochet, sew, and knit with the best of them, she owned and worked a "Jewel Art" in the 60's. She is also the one that told me " your work should look as good on the back as it does on the front" and "I weave and blend love in to each one of my pieces".
Have a great ride on the magic carpet MOM!! I will miss you so much. I love you and thank you! Ching-ching La'chaim
xoxoxoxo


In Lisa words:
WHAT IS ONE WORLD ONE HEART?

I created this event in 2007. 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 means.......in 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 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. 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.
For my giveaway:
I will be making one of my goddess brooches for the winner.
You can refer back to my 10th giveaway here:
You will be able to have her made to you specifications, She will also be resting in a magic carpet base.
Depending on the amount of entries I may do this again and pick another winner.


The rules, as there must be some once in a while
1. You must have a blog or email so I can get back to you.
I will pick another name if I can not get in touch with you.

2. Leave a comment on this post only.

3. One comment only.

The winner will be drawn on the 14th of February 2010 at 12 noon MIDNIGHT pst (pacific standard time), I will announce the winner (or winners?) on the 15th of February

Thank you for riding the magic carpet with me. Have fun and good luck on your travels.
Comeback again sometime, it was so nice to meet you

  42. Your brooches are beautiful. So are your other pieces of work. And married to an artist too, how wonderful. I am envious that you have such a good relationship with your mother-in-law. I have always wished for that but it was not meant to be. I did have a wonderful mother for 34 precious years and she is never far from my heart. I know your mother-in-law must feel very blessed to have you for a daughter.

  180. What beautiful work, I love all of them and it is hard to choose which one I want. My mother was a designer of fabric. She could take anything and make something out of it, mostly my clothes. She too always preached to me the back needs to look as good as the front, and always instilled in us we could do anything we set our minds to. Your mother-in-law is a smart woman. OWOH #791
