One World One Heart Giveaway

Hey there,
I only just heard about this fantastic thing - but I heard there was still time to join, so here I am with my part of the give away!

If you go here you can see all the other wonderful blogs that are participating! The event ends on february 15th, I will announce the winner on that day, too! To be eligible for the prize you just have to leave a comment. Nothing else required :-)
The winner will be determined using random.org, but there will be some minor things that are not random.
Of course I would like you to follow my blog, facebookor twitter or visit my etsy store *pokes sidebar*, but you don't need to. I will add more prizes if there are a lot of comments - and check back on february 15th, if there are enough comments, I'll put a digital scrapbooking kit together for all of you!

So, what is there to win, you may ask?

You get this window star from my etsy shop. This beautiful window ornament catches the sun in its many folds! Each point is folded seperately with great care.

I use very fine tissue paper to make these stars because I can make more layers then with kite or wax paper. The star looks darker where it has more layers (= has been folded more often). It will brighten up any room. I will contact the winner of the give away - you get to pick the color of your prize to match your curtains/view or mood.

I will also give away some ACEOs to several people. This is not random - I will just pick comments that I like:-)

So comment away!

Hugs
Vee

  1. I'm really not clear on how this is being done. Do we comment on individual blogs or the main one? Each blog having their own drawing? Thank you!!

  7. Your star is really neat! I love the fact that you are so kindly going to make one in a color of choice! I bet this would look amazing in red! Have you worked with black? I'm wondering if enough light gets through for it to be effective. That might be really neat. Thanks for offering a fun giveaway! I'd be thrilled to have you jump on over and enter mine, too!
