One World One Heart

In order to meet other bloggers, particularly other crafty and creative ones, I am taking part in this event, One World One Heart.  I've never done anything like this, since I am relatively new to blogging.  I hope that it will be a chance for me to learn more about successful blogging and make friends with artistic individuals around the world!
As a part of this event, anyone who comments is eligible for a door prize to be awarded at the end of the event.  My door prize is a set of greeting cards that I have created.  In addition to the two pictured below, I will add three others with them.  I know my blog is all about making stuff from sweaters, and it would make sense to give away an upcycled sweater item.  However, since it could be shipped anywhere in the world, my cards would probably travel more easily.

So don't forget to comment so your information will be available for the doorprize!  For more information on adding your blog to the event, visit:
