Monday's Muse ( & Music) - One World One Heart

Photo

Welcome to the 3rd annual
One World One Heart giveaway event!

Started by A Whimsical Bohemian "to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet ", 911 bloggers participated in OWOH last year. How cool is that? I heard about this event from Marybeth over at Blogmania & knew right away that I wanted to play along. Do you want to play to??

Before we begin, it is also Musical Monday & this tune by Yusuf seems to fit today's theme.



What are you listening to today? Click MM button to visit Diane of GoodMourningGlory, the home base of Musical Monday. Leave your linky & share some tunes. Then check out what others have posted


Now, back to One World One Heart - Here's how it works:

Between now & February 15, bloggers worldwide will be flashing their ticket to Magic Carpet Ride. Whenever you see the top image on somebody's sidebar, they are playing along. Everyone showing a "ticket" is hosting a OWOH giveaway. All winners will be randomly selected on Feb. 15th.

How do you enter?

It's easy. Just leave a comment on someone's OHOW blogpost and you will be entered in that blog's random drawing. Be sure to leave some contact info if it isn't in your profile. Contest is open worldwide with free shipping.

What Am I Giving Away?


"You cannot learn to fly by flying. First you must learn to walk, and to run, and to climb, and to dance."
- Friedrich Nietzsche


1 lucky winner will receive this original watercolor piece, Climbing. It is a mix of drawing & painting and was originally created for IllustrationFriday.com. The corners of the paper have been cut out & lightly embossed for a Victorian filigree effect. Climbing measures 5" sq. and I'll toss in a custom cut acid free mat for the winner.

Only comments left on this post will qualify for my random drawing. Your comment must be left before 1 a.m. (EST) on 2/15.

So c'mon play along with us!

Looking for more OWOH 2010 blogs to comment on? Click here for a list of participants (found on the right margin of A Whimsical Bohemian's blog).

Want to post your own giveaway? Here are the directions to sign up.

That's it for today - hope you have a fantastic week!

  24. Beautiful song! Somehow he reminds me of a German musician, Reinhard Mey. I don't know how enjoyable his music is without understanding the lyrics (he's fairly critical of society and politics). But if you want to check him out, here and here's a good place to start (last one has a translation of the lyrics).
