One World One Heart-- Blog Hop and Giveaway

One World One Heart
One World One Heart was created in 2007 by Lisa Swifka as an event hosted to connect bloggers with one another.  Each of the blogs participating hosts a giveaway.  You can find a list of participants/blogs here.  

This year, I am participating!  Welcome to anyone who has stopped by my blog through this blog hop.

Here's a little about me:  My name is Marcia.  I am a K-6 Art teacher in Madison, WI.  I'm 31 years old, have a husband named Andrew and adorable little 1 year old named Daria.  My blog features mostly things about art teaching, collage making, art journaling and so forth.  I do a lot of my own mixed media art.  

As part of the blog hop, we offer a giveaway to people who stop by.  Anyone who currently reads my blog or visits this post can sign up.  All you have to do is leave your email address in the comment if you are interested in winning.  I will randomly pick one winner to win this book: How to Make a Journal of Your Life. It is a tiny book, but a fun little read.  One winner will randomly be chosen Feb. 17.  Thanks for stopping by!!!

Hi Marcia. Was I supposed to post already? I've been reading Lisa's instructions and she keeps going over about not to post and send to her till Jan. 30th. So is it okay to post ahead of time? Let me know please and thanks.

Marcia said...

I don't know! I saw someone else post about it, so I thought I would post mine now. Should I wait and repost? I think maybe she didn't want to be inundated with them until Jan. 30th?

Gloria said...

I just came from Lisa's blog and she has a new post out and this is part of what she posted today. What I think is that she is NOT accepting any links or posts prior to that date? Yes, that's it. Tee hee. I'm sure it will be fine Marcia, not to worry. Have a great weekend.

"I will see you for the start of OWOH(ONE WORLD ONE HEART)... Midnight Sunday January 30th! does NOT start until then so NO links or posts with "door prizes" will be accepted or should be posted yet....any dated prior to the 30th will NOT be added when the event begins. Also if you have more than one blog feel free to participate with all of them....making sure they are NOT the same post with the same door prize though....they must be separate to be listed when the time comes."

Marcia said...

it does say "any dated prior to the 30th will not be added when the event begins." Maybe I will delete and repost! ha ha

Katie Morris said...

This is a cool idea! I'll have to come up with something to give away...

Hermine said...
