One World One Heart


Hello! I have decided to participate in this fun, worldwide blogging event again. This will be my third year and I understand the event hostess has declared this will be the last one she will have. It's a lot of fun to have visitors from all over the world come to visit my blog. So, whether you're from my own little country of the US of A or from far, far away, I am so glad you're here. It's nice to meet you.

Want to play along with us? Click on the lovely graphic at the beginning of the post or click HERE and you will be able to read all about how to play, too!

I have two door prizes for you to win.

The first door prize is this photograph! It is a 5 x 7 original photo by me, signed by me. It will be just the photograph as I believe framing is a personal choice
The other prize is this adorable, spiral bound Queen Bee Journal with artwork by one of my favorite artists: Mary Engelbreit!

Just leave me a comment in the comments box so I know you're interested and on February 17th, I will choose a name and when I do, I will post the name of the winner and then I will ask that you send me your mailing address so your prize can be mailed to you. This is open to anyone with a blog!

Bonne chance!!
