One World One Heart

Happy One World One Heart Day! Aren't those beautiful words? If you've never heard of this event, please go visit the OWOH blog of Lisa Swifka, who started this giveaway event a few years ago to promote a sense of community and friendship in blogland. On her blog, you will discover links to hundreds of other blogs, each with their own giveaway.

Here's what I'm offering:

Two bold and beautiful 8 1/2" X 11" prints,ready to frame. If you're interested in them, you have until February 14 to leave a comment - winners will be announced on February 15. I will use a random number generator and the first three numbers will each receive copies of both the prints. Please leave only one comment, and the comment must be on this post to be entered. Also, please leave me either a link to your blog or an e-mail address, so I can contact you about your prize.

And please, please come back and visit me on Wednesday. I will be hosting a special event for relief efforts in Haiti and would so love to have you join me.
