One World One Heart

One World One Heart
Aloha! It’s time for a ride on the Magic Carpet as you surf from one blog to the next to see what’s on offer for One World One Heart. This giveaway runs until 14th February and the whole event finishes on 15th Feb. I will choose the winner using a random number selector.

Lisa Swifka

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 … 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 an INTERNATIONAL event.

Aloha and welcome to my blog. I’m giving away some Aloha in the form of three lei and a set of two Spa washcloths or dishcloths if you prefer to wash dishes rather than be pampered.

To have a chance at winning leave a comment on this particular post.

These spa cloths are 100% cotton.

These lei are made from satin rattail and eyelash pua yarn.

Unfortunately no real flowers were picked in the making of these lei.

The best of luck and fun to each of you.

    Lovely Work & Blog. Your Leis Are Beautiful.

    I read your post on plants having feelings. I believe they do. There was a recent test made on some potted ivy & music. The ivy that listened to heavy metal died & the ivy that listened to classical music grew & grew.

    My dream is to live on Maui. After many vacations in Hawaii, that would be my island of choice. What island do you live on?
