One World One Heart GiveAway was started by the amazing Linda "oceandreamer" Swifka of whimsical bohemian. IT IS A WORLDWIDE GIVEAWAY!
The premise is to have a chance to meet artists and visit blogs from all over the world and have a change to win a gift or two along the way.
There are currently well over 500 participating artists. Just click on the link at the right to go to the official site. There you will find the directions for joining and the list of all the participants.

My giveaway includes:

1). Two drawings for a handmade journal by me.
The front and back covers are edged in ribbon and/or lace. The front cover is collaged with a mixture of random 'doodads' and 'whatevers'.
A multitude of colored ribbons flow from the spine. The ends are embellished with doodads.

The pages are made with a mixture of water colored papers and other textured papers
with random ribbon embellishments.

2). Two names will also be drawn to receive a small box of vintage chenille garlands in green and red. I scored these at a small community wide garage sale for pennies!!
Don't forget to include a way for me to track back to your blog or to get a hold of you in case you are a winner.
The worldwide drawings will be held on FEB 12th!!

Man, that is one fat, crazy journal! Imagine pulling it out at the coffee house? The comments wouldn't stop!
I suggest you include some business cards, so when the lucky winner gets asked, "where did you get that?" she can pass them out.
My giveaway is #310 on the list, if you'd like to come play.

Thanks for stopping by my giveaway. Somehow I think I missed entering yours. I've been through all the participants, but sometimes the computer at work(shh, don't tell anybody that) wouldn't open some blogs and then I think I just missed some. I tried to do a lot of this at work because I have dialup at home.

Lovely journal! Thanks for the chance to win.
