One World One Heart


One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants!

Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy.

If you would like to find out more and take part, pop over to the Whimsical Bohemian blog for the full details.

Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by on your One World One Heart tour.

My name is Lorraine and I am a part-time working mum.

I enjoy making jewellery in my free time.

Here is one of the necklaces I have made for Valentines Day.

I was lucky to receive a sewing machine for Christmas,

so would now like to experiment and make some other

craft items.


For my One World One Heart Giveaway

I am offering this wonderful star crystal bookmark,

perfect for marking the place in your latest read.

Please leave a comment with a way I can contact you

on the closing date of 17 Feb 11.

  146. Hi Lorraine,
    I LOVE books so when I saw your gorgeous bookmark giveaway, I became very excited. What a magickal and special way to honor a beloved book. My fave. book, well, tons of them, but has to be "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. A very "simple" myth/fairy tale, but I reread it every year. I can't wait to check out all the books you have on your Shelfari book shelf. I have an account with Goodreads which is also a fun way to get to know others and read books.

    Please enter my name for a chance to win your giveaway.

    Thank you so much and blessings

  183. I love bookmarks - I never have enough of them as I always have several books on the go at once! Yours is beautiful and so is your jewellery.

  184. That's a much prettier bookmark than the old receipt I'm using in my current read. I see you are a Shelfari member, I like to keep track of the books I read there as well. I think I'm the only Laume, if you'd like to see what I've been reading. I also put up a couple posts on my main blog in Jaunary listing all the books I read last year and my top ten (or maybe it was my top 12) - anyway, I'm always on the lookout for new authors and titles.

  185. Nice to meet you Lorraine . I adore taht beautiful lamp work bead necklace. Please add me to the giveaway list for your adorable bookmark and come over and visit me too. I am #229 on the list.

  186. What a lovely bookmark! I am thrilled to enter.
