"One World One Heart 2011"

Hello! Welcome to "My Hodgepodge".
I'm so happy to join "One World One Heart" from Japan.

A couple days ago, Jeany in Germany whom we've known each other in this blogsophere over the years, introduced me in her blog about "One World One Heart" project. As I was reading what it was all about, I was carried away with this project for bloggers across the countries.

"One World One Heart" project had been brought to all the bloggers(strictly limited as blog owners) throughout the world by one artist whose name is Lisa. Please visit her blog and learn more in detail about "One World One Heart".
This is a huge giveaway project that I've never run into before.
Go and visit Lisa's page to see more than 800 participants enrolling in this project with beautiful give-away presents. It is something like exchanging handmade gifts but there is more to it. You will know how large a number of women in the world, keeping their blogs, expressing their own thoughts and own life-styles, opening their doors to the outward world. By getting a chance to visit their blogs, we'll be able to know one another. That's friendship. Thus, the whole world is getting smaller. How nice this is.

So I've also made up my mind to join this project by presenting my giveaway. Of course, you can join the project just by visiting others , enjoying their blogs and leaving a message saying you'd like to sign up for a give away.

Well, to tell you the truth, I'm not good at handcrafts.
I love making things with my hands if I have time, but this is only for my own pleasure. None of them makes a good gift to be sent out.
So here are some cute little goodies I've bought from some shops before for adding to my favorite collections.

Let's enjoy "One World One Heart" together. This time it will be the fifth and will be the last project after all. How lucky that I joined the last "One World One Heart"project.

Here are my giveaway gifts: a very small set of dolls and three small pocket envelops.

The dolls are called "Hina Dolls." On March 3 we celebrate the Girls Festival in Japan by decorating Hina Dolls at home. Those small pocket envelops are originally for putting in small amount of money to hand out to others in Japan. They are too cute just for envelops.

In order to join my give away, please leave your comment , your blog URL and your e-mail address here. I'll choose one lucky winner by lot.(I'm ready to use one lottery free soft from the web.) Don't forget to write your e-mail address. Otherwise, if you were the winner, I've got to choose the second person.

Finally thank you Lisa for your taking time for this project for five years.

Hello! I've always wanted to visit Japan, even as a child. Then in college I was lucky enough to have a roommate from there. Don't know if I'll ever get a chance to visit but I enjoyed getting to know the culture a little better through her. :-)

Would love to win your doorprize. :-) Didn't know about the story about Hina dolls, though I've seen them before.

Hello very nice lady from Japan!
I live in Arizona.
I am so impressed that you have been blogging since 2004! That may be the longest I've seen while doing this OWOH event. Congrats on the tenacity you've shown. I read your post about using English language to further your interest in the language. Using the social networks is the best idea I've heard of for learning a language different than your own. The gifts you have to offer are really cool. I think you will find that alot of artists in the US like to use Asian/Japanese motifs and imagery in their artworks. I am no different! Nice to find your blog, very interesting. Tina

Healing Woman said...

Your dolls took me way back in time. When I was a teenager, I was pen pals with a boy by the name of Tuge Agee Yosida..or something like that. We exchanged letters and gifts. He would send me dolls that looked very much like the ones your are giving for the OWOH event. I, in turn would send him the Popular Mechanics magazines that he requested. Sadly, I lost contact with him many long years ago. But, here I am with a new pen pal...I became a follower. Please add me to the draw..I'd love to recapture my memories through your dolls. Also, please fly on over to visit me at number 92.

Warm wishes,

OMG!! This is beautiful, I love everything Japanese, manga anime, we even had sushi for dinner last night LOL! Don't know if I made it or not, but either way no worries the door prize is the catalyst but it's all about saying Howdy too ;) I'd love you to come on over check out my giveaways & comment at my OWOH post if you haven't already I believe there are a few minutes (??) before close off :) oh & please feel free to drop in now and then after OWOH if you're in the bloggersphere :) that'd be cool! Now let's enjoy the final countdown of the final One World One Heart EXTRAVAGANZA :) Up, UP & AWAAAAAAY!!
