One World One Heart-

One World One Heart is a wonderful Event where bloggers from all over the world come together and share their creativity, learn about one another and well, win goodies too! But this is the creation of Lisa and has brought many kindred spirits together!
This years theme is the magic carpet ride and think about how fun that would be......... to take off and do something that you might never expect to be able to do! Ah- young at heart and so full of adventure. I love it! So I of course, got my ticket to ride and I have thoroughly enjoyed all the creative people that I have met and all the unbelievable ideas I have gotten. Please join us in this event, now held annually and growing bigger and bigger each year.

This year I am giving away a book, a book that my friend Eileen actually took the Magic Carpet Ride and published! I was amazed that she did this (we all have that desire to invent or create something don't we?) It is a beautiful book and I have given you some sneak peeks below. This could be your lucky ticket as this is being given away to some lucky carpet rider!

This was a dream come true don't you think? And the girl in the book, she is so lively and well illustrated after Eileen's daughter.

Now tell me what little girl would not want to have a book illustrated after herself? And to have it so wonderfully put into color. These are pages of the book and it is a very simple book but also very "to the point".

Eileen's goal was to really let children understand that we are who we think or believe we are, which can be anyone and anything we choose! How cool is that?
To be eligible to win a copy of this book:
1. You need to have an active blog- hence our flight around the world of blogs.
2. You MUST add a comment below and include an email or some way for me to make contact with you once this event is done- in order to mail the book to you.
3. I will use random org to choose the winner and post the winner Feb 15th 9pm.
People are asking- where can I buy more of these books.......... so I will tell you that you can get it here I AM . They are fast shippers as well!
Take care and good luck! Heidi
