Lisa Swifka of A Whimsical Bohemian has done it again! In 2007 she created the One World One Heart Event. It brings bloggers from around the world together. These bloggers may never have ordinarily met, and this event is a super fun event to meet others all around the world. I joined OWOH last year , and had so much fun, that I decided to participate again:).

Here's how to participate. Just leave a comment to this blog post below to be eligible to win. You must have a way to link back to your blog or leave an email address so that you can be contacted if you win any of my 4 giveaways.

This giveaway is open to active bloggers. If you are interested in joining, just click on the OWOH badge in this post or in the side bar to find out how to join . This event ends on Mon., 15 February, and I will close my comments section at 8:00pm EST in order to be able to go to the random generator to pick the winners. I will announce the winners of my giveaways by the end of the night on 15 February.

Let's have fun on this Magic Carpet Ride event!!! Welcome to my blog. I look forward to getting to know many of you:).
