OneWorld, One Heart!

EDIT 2/15/2010 2am est: ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END.... OK it is now 2 am EST...no more comments...Thank you everyone...I will be picking a winner tomorrow afternoon :) (out of a hat)

Thank you so much for visiting and commenting on my brand new blog!  It means a lot to me.

I hope some of you will consider my plea for Pink, Daisies and Mickey mouse ATCs formy great-niece. read about it 2 posts above,and read about Daisy on my side bar.  I got 0 comments on that post, but 173 on my giveaway post.
Susan
**********************************************************************************

Everyone I have been meeting have been so nice,and all the blogs that I have visited are all being so generous,that I decided I am NOT going to wait til next year to jump on the band wagon!   Yet I have to give some thought to what I am giving away, so please bare with me for not longer than 24 hours,and I will have more info here!  You have all inspired me!   : D
NOW EDITED:
OK,I want to start by reminding everyone that Lisa Swifka (whimsicalBohemian) created this event in 2007. The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. 2007 had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong.
We had a strong showing the first year for sure, and then in 2008 we had just about tripled that number. In 2009 there were 911 participants, to say I was amazed is an understatement. 28 countries were represented in the 2009 event as well.
This is more than wanting to win something.......that is only the means.......in the end it's about finding kindred spirits. Someone who may be fairly new to blogging, not sure how to navigate, find others and have others find them....Some are long time bloggers and in some cases well known in the blogging community. Whatever the case it brings all of them together. This is an INTERNATIONAL event that has and had participants from the US, Canada, France, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England,Wales, Slovenia and more. It transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, religious beliefs......it's a coming together like the giant community we are on this planet. If only it took a simple giveaway to create PEACE everywhere, in the mean time here we give from our hearts.


I have thought much about what to offer. We are all traveling all over the world.
the theme this year is a "magic carpet ride", but  that is a fantasy after all (not that I wouldn't enjoy it..)  But think about the ways, people in different countries  and regions had limited resources on communicating with each other:  first there was  smoke signals
 
Then there was Morse code


then we had the riders of the Pony express...

which led of course to the modern day mail service, The US has the best mail service in the world,and to think we can send a greeting to anyone in our own country for under 50 cents and to many countries for under 1 dollar. I am proud to be a former Rural Letter Carrier for the USPS and my husband Ron still is a Postal worker 38 years and counting (that is how we met).   Of course the telephone,came about in here,and then the MAGICAL CARPET known as the  INTERNET!!
 Can you think  where I might be heading with this?

Something nice, pictures to follow in a little while...keeping you in suspense is even more fun I think...

EDIT TO SAY:  My giveaway is 40 "stamped" (rubber that is) envelopes in sizes A2 and A6, some will be colored in, some may be embossed. Some may be vintage, some may be cute, some might be quotes. These are all QUALITY envelopes, some are made with handmade paper, some have mica flakes in them etc.
here is a sampling of the A2 size.

If the winner is American, you will also receive 10 first class and 10 2nd ounce postage stamps. If you are not American I will add (provided I can get them) 3 International Reply Coupons...these are good in almost every country on the planet and good to use for swaps. Sometimes you have to ask your postal center to order a couple for you.  I will include a printed list of the countries that use them.

here is a sampling of the A6 size. 


Rules (I am real loose here)
1. I would prefer you have a blog,but I won't hold it against you if you do not,just please make sure to leave me an email so I can contact you if you should be a winner.

2. you must comment on THIS post only to be in the drawing.

3. You must ONLY  comment once.

4. No comments excepted after February 14th at midnight EST, I will be drawing the winner and making the announcement on February 15th.

*BONUS
 you will get 1 extra chance if you comment on either one of my other posts (since I am new to blogging)

edit:  WOOT!!! we have reached 100 comments I will be adding a 2nd winner gift.  The second winner will also get  40 stamped envelopes in A2 and A6  sizes.  We'll see how it goes after that.  Good luck everyone and thanks for visiting my VERY BRAND NEW blog.  :D  Susan

Carapace said...

You were a rural mail carrier? Truly, you were one of the nation's heroes! You can tell who's really important to this country's functioning every national holiday, when no one cares that the Senate's shut down, but everyone gets antsy over the mail. As much as I love email, there's still something magic about seeing a package for me sticking out of that metal mailbox...!
Glad you joined the Ride!

Hi from England! Lovely giveaway! Please enter my name, thank you :) Should I be lucky enough to win - instead of International Reply Coupons, what I would really love is just one American postage stamp if possible, because I like to get things my daughter would enjoy learning about, and I know she would love one of those! I know this is rude of me to ask, but you know what they say - "if you don't ask, you don't get!" LOL ;)

Hi Susan - what a great giveaway!! and so useful too!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and entering my giveaway, as you are now following I hope you will join in with my monthly giveaways - I like to have an international mix among my winners!!

Welcome to the world of blogging, the only downside is that it takes up time when I could be crafting - it's so easy to spend hours drooling over everyone's fantastic artwork instead of getting on with my own - I just end up with a huge wishlist of ideas and no time!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that snow stops soon - it's cold here in London but nothing like what you have. Keep warm and safe!!

I am looking forward to visiting again;)
