WHAT IS ONE WORLD ONE HEART?
Lisa at A Whimsical Bohemian created this event in 2007 and it has grown dramastically since then. I was lucky to get aboard the first year and it had under 100 bloggers, I am so happy to have participated then and every year since then. Last year 2009, had over 900 bloggers and 28 countries. Now, do NOT let this scare you off, join in the fun, go to Lisa's blog and sign up to participate on your blog, the more the merrier!
It will be a magical event with a theme "Magic Carpet Ride" to explore and share the world of One World, One Heart Bloggers. You will see unbelievable art projects and ideas so blissful and enchanting you too will come back year after year and look forward the this event also. Lisa is truely an artist with a vision and it just exploded even before her eyes with bigger and more artist endevors that ever imagined.
Lets's go for the ride too!
There are just a few very easy guidelines. You must have a blog and a way to leave comments without having to sign up or on. You shall promote a giveaway but the real idea behind One World, One Heart is to promote friendship towards all who come by your blog to visit with you.
This year we are riding the Magic Carpet and who doesn't want to be able to fly around and meet each other on their blogs and leaving a comment to win a gift. But more important, is to just meet each other and make friends who may have the same interests or to learn about someone totally different and enjoying what they are doing to make a new interest for yourself.
Believe me, you will see the finest that blogland has to offer, so get comfortable and have some tea to enjoy while you navigate on the Magic Carpet. It is like flying to each other's homes only it doesn't have to be spotless, and you can wear your most comfortable clothes, P.J's preferred. It begins today January 25,2010 and the giveaway's will be posted on each blog till February 15, 2010 when the winners are announced on each blog, so be sure and leave your comment and a way to contact you in the event you are my winner. I will use the random number generator to select my two winners. Your comment number is your random number adssignment. My cut-off time for entering is 12:00AM CST Feb.15,2010 so I can tally your names and randomly select my winning numbers so I can post the winners to my blog on February 15th also.
Now, about me, I am Cyndi, married for 44 years to my high school sweetheart. We have one grown daughter, Lisa. We adopted a rescue Golden Retriever Emma, and two rescue cats, Blak and Bleu. We lost our two Golden Retrievers of 12 years in the last two years. They were one week apart in age and we will never forget them, they were so special to us. My daughter has one of our grand-dogs, Barkley and we have adopted two other Golden's, Maggie and Abby we dog-sit now and then so, WE love dogs! Golden Retrievers have been the most special dogs we have ever had and probably will always have one. Emma has been a joy to us as she needed a home so she was our first rescue soon after our female, Megan passed of cancer. Their stories are in older posts (see them on a sidebar last May).
My husband has been ill with a back fusion and found he has osterioposos as bad as you can get it, so my artwork is behind as usual. I keep thinking this too will pass and I can get on with all I have stored in my head. I will!
I like to work with mixed media, papers, fibers, threads, materials, yarns, outdoor nature items and vintage anything I can find. I have even been known to go through throw always' by the street. My motto is reuse, redo, recycle everything possible to keep it from a landfill plus it is finer and less expensive to use that to buy new. But, I have two rooms of new also, those coupons from Hobby Lobby, Michaels, JoAnne's are so hard for me to pass up. so, I have supplies and equipment taking over my home. I have closed two consignment stores I had so I have a surplus of new and vintage merchandise that I sell on-line. I want to get out my sewing machine and learn to sew again.
I thank you for dropping by to visit and I hope you follow or bookmark to return again later. I live in Alabama now, but was born in Missouri and grew up there.

My motto is to " Make Memories because No One can take them Away"
