One World One Heart -- The Final Year

Today is the first day of One World One Heart...a blog hop designed to bring together bloggers from all over the world. It is a fun and very interesting event!

For information on this event, please go here: The Whimsical Bohemian. A special thank you to Lisa for hosting this wonderful event. This is her fifth and final year.

Since the purpose of this event is to discover other like-minded bloggers, we are supposed to introduce ourselves. :-)

I am a stay-at-home-mom from the good ol' USA, and I homeschool my 3 children. I love crafts of any kind, but especially stamping and other paper crafts. I have been seriously blogging since the last OWOH event. I love blog-hopping, entering card challenges, reading, crocheting, and especially spending time with my family.

Since my family lives on one income (our choice!) I have a craft budget of virtually zero. Sooo...I enter a lot of giveaways. I use the things I win to make cards to give away, or just to give away what I win. I LOVE to give things away!! It makes me very happy to make someone else happy. :-)

One reason I like OWOH is that each blog that enters this event gets to give something away! This year, I have decided to give away one of my hand crocheted hats:

 This hat will fit a baby around 3 months old. The crocheted flower is attached to a pin backing and can be removed.

Since I do not have a small baby to model the hat, I used my dd's bear. :-) Please note: The bear is not included in the giveaway! 

The OWOH event continues through February 17. I will draw a winner and announce the winner's name on my blog. I will also e-mail the winner, so please leave a way to contact you with your comment!

This giveaway is open to all worldwide. I hope that you will host your own giveaway and meet some new bloggy friends!

Well, my daughter, who is sitting here beside me says she wants the hat to put on her teddy bear, so I think she likes your idea of putting it on the bear. It is really a cute hat. Thanks for offering it.

Hi Debbi! It's so nice to meet you and see what you're all about! That's the whole point of this fabulous hop, right? You sound like a very busy lady! Your sweet little hat is just adorable.

I'm so sorry to hear that you've lost your mother in law to cancer. I am finding that you'd be hard pressed to find someone nowadays whose life hasn't been touched my cancer one way or another. I miss my mom terribly and some days don't know how I will go on. But I do, mostly to my friends in real life and a huge part of my blogging buddies. What joy this blogging thing has brought me. It's practically therapy.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your thoughtful comments. I am so glad to meet you :)

Happy Creating!
