One World, One Heart

Today is Valentine's Day and I had my husband draw two names from the "hat". The first winner is Jacq who gets first choice of which pin she wants and the second winner is Robin Krieger who will receive the remaining pin. I so wish I could have offered a prize to each and every one of you. I hope to revisit all the blogs and get to know everyone a bit better. I had a good time with this event; I hope you did too.






I decided it would be fun to join in with the One World, One Heart group. For my give-away, the winner will get to choose from these two pins. One is more refined and one a little wild. I made them both; I like them both and I hope you like them too.

Now, remember to leave a comment so I can put all the names in a hat for the drawing on Feb. 14th. Good luck to everyone and I hope you all enjoy seeing new blogs and getting to know the authors through them. Note: one of the rules is that you have a blog of your own that can be visited. I left this part out before and ended up causing some confusion.

Notice!!!! I am amending my giveaway. I am giving both pins away. I will draw two names. The first will get to pick the pin they want and the second gets the other pin. So two people will get to win on my blog. This will be more fun
since there will be more winners!

Hello Freebird, Both your pins are gorgeous,its difficult to decide which I like but I think the freeform one wins. It reminds me of an exotic coral reef.

Jenna Z said...

Ooh, those are both gorgeous and look like they took a LOT of work! Thanks for the chance to win one!

Miz Annie said...

freebird said...

Great to "see" you all. I'm glad some of you like my wild pin as my husband thought it was kind of nutty. Guess I am too but hey it's more fun!

Maggie R said...

Hi Freebird,
Thought I would pop by and say hi since you visited me... How exciting to see you are taking part in "One Worlds, One Heart"
I was trying to find the code to put on my blog and take part but had no luck.How did you get the button on your blog to direct you to the site? Anyway I guess I willl figure it out eventually!!
I would love to take part in your draw.. Your pins are gorgeoso! Either one would be a treasure to own. Count me in;-}
((((hugs))))

Maggie R said...

Hey Freebird,
I am SOOOOO excited! Thank-you for sending me the code for the ONE WORLD-ONE LOVE.
I got it on and guess what!??!
I just learned how to do the hyperlink thing and I used it on "freebird" and it WORKED!!! I have wanted to do that for such a long time, I know it is going to be a great day!!!!
Hope you have a great day too

Lori said...

Hello Freebird! what a nice thing to do...I always seem to give everything I make away also, although not in a winning situtation like this! Both pins are gorgeous, but I like the first one, as embellisher said, it reminds me of the coral reef!
Thanks for the opportunity to get to know you and your blog.

Now, I've been to most of your blogs but I will be by again this coming week, hopefully more than once. I learn a lot from everyone plus get to see and hear more exciting stuff than what goes on here on my 40 acres of desert.

sandee said...

This is a great idea! However, I just moved across country and have most of my stuff in storage. What I would like to do, is go into as many of the blogs as I can and sign in. If my name gets pulled by anyone as a winner, I will donate $100 to AIDS Foundation in memory of my brother. If my name gets selected more than once, I will up the ante an additional $10 every time it gets pulled (greedy I know, but one can dream!!!) If my name is not pulled by anyone, I will still make a $50 donation. Tis way, everyone is a winner.

SuzyQSparkles said...

This is only the 13th comment I've left in the OWOH Giveaway - I only enter for items I'd like to have (and use)... the first is fun, but the second, I'd love to give as a gift to my Aunt... or perhaps I'd keep it for me... hard to choose. Sometimes, we "share" jewelry (1000 miles apart). We trade it off each time we see each other. A fun way to think about her each time I wear the piece!

susan said...

Fun pins...they really show your range in styles. I really like them both...I can't even imagine how much work you put into them.

Connie Carpenter Macko said...

i'm sorry i missed your drawing... but wanted to stop by visit and to say hello and thanks for stoping by my blog during OWOH. i hope you are enjoying the event!
