one world...one heart

PLEASE NOTE: this contest closed Wednesday 2/11 at midnight. I have announced the winner HERE.



Wow. What a find. This will be my first year participating in the "one world-one heart" blog event sponsored by Lisa "oceandreamer" Swifka. Not familiar with this event? Neither was I until I stumbled upon it on tilt creations blog. These are Lisa's words that best describe the mission...

The whole idea behind doing this and trying to get as many as possible to join in, was and is to meet new and wonderful people. Bloggers come from all walks of life, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all areas of the world, female, male......some are artists exclusively, some dabble, some are professionals in various areas, some are stay at home parents, some are teachers, some are very young and some are up in years. The common denominator in blogging is that we all have stories to tell....be it through visual means or life stories or the day-to-day or art work or handwork of varying kinds or poetry and journaling. We can be inspired or inspire others by finding a blog and taking the time to read/see someones story. Often times a spark happens....this palpable spark of recognition through kindred understanding and shared passions in life. It is in those times when we take a moment to comment and comment again.......when those comments are reciprocated a discovery is made that we share commonolaties which connect us sight unseen. Sometimes we may live on separate continents or at either end of the same country or even discover you hail from the same general area. By paying attention, by connecting with others, we are creating a circle of amazing individuals who can literally enhance our lives and we can enhance theirs.

Sounds fun, doesn't it? I've only been to about a dozen of the 475 blogs already participating but I can't wait to check them all out this weekend!

In honor of the one world-one heart mission, zuzu girl handmade will be giving away a custom dream catcher similar to one of the images shown below, but best suited to the winner's decor. You are not required to jump through any hoops to win. You do not have to visit the other 475 blogs (but it certainly can't hurt!). All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by midnight, February 11th, US Pacific Time and make sure that I am able to find you through your comment profile. I will contact the winner on February 12th.

Happy Blogging!

I see some magic in the air,
If it be a dreamcatcher there...
Pretty colors, warm and bright,
May you have a dream tonight...

Dream of angels, friends and love,
See a memory that you have,
Speak to someone in far off land,
Hold a moment in your hand.

Thanks for the enchanting giveaway.
