One World One Heart Giveaway


Grr – this image is supposed to link to A Whimsical Bohemian…but I can’t make it work!! Grrr. I think it’s a WordPress thing.

This is the coolest idea – bloggers all over the world are invited to join this giveaway. The creator of the One World One Heart event, Lisa Swifka, explains what it’s all about on her blog:

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.

Bloggers participating in the giveaway link to her site and are added to the list. Active bloggers are invited to visit as many links as they want, and leave comments to be entered in the giveaways at each blog. As I write, there are 902 links listed at A Whimsical Bohemian, Lisa’s blog!

So, this is my item to giveaway:

subtle brown-gold swirly

It is a polymer clay pendant that I made and strung on amber Soft Glas. It has very subtle pattern of yummy chocolate brown swirled with gold and buffed to a soft shine. The pendant is about 1″ in diameter, and the necklace as a whole is about 18″ in length. Leave a comment below, and on the 15th of February, I might announce YOU as the winner!

I hope lots of folks participate – this is such a wonderful way to make the world seem a little smaller and a lot more friendly!

Update 2-5-10

Ok! I now have 100 comments on this post! Time to add a 2nd prize…so, for something completely different, TA DA! It’s Disco Cat!
