Last Thursday we signed the papers to move on to the next chapter of our lives. We SOLD our house!!!! There are still subjects to be removed and this should happen by the 30th of Jan.
If all goes as planned (and it should as the inspection has already been completed and all paperwork has been handed over as requested) we will be looking for a new home to move into by March 1st. This is very exciting, we have been here for 5 years but honestly I am ready for a change.
So please keep your fingers crossed that all will be completed on Friday and we can go house hunting!
On another note I plan to join the One World - One Heart campaign. What is this? See below.
This event was created in 2007, and the following was copied from the about page on One World-One Heart blog.
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.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 art 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. We are not solving the worlds problems nor are we curing anything nor are we changing the world. We are merely generating a closer community between humans through blogging. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become.I don't like rules but sometimes there needs to be at least guidelines to keeping things cohesive and fair for everyone.You don't need to be an artist to participate each year, this is open to everyone. What it's not meant for is self promotion. Meaning that the mission of this event is to meet new people and them meet you, rather than be a commercial for each persons specific endeavors. Many people have links to their websites, Etsy sites etc. already on their blog therefore the "visitor" can click on those to find out more about what a person does. The aim is for the event post itself to be about welcoming and showing what each visitor has a chance to win by stopping by.....AND giving the visitor a chance to read and learn more about each person along the way. It is almost like being in a huge convention room where you meet and mingle - only the "hello my name is" badge is each persons blog.
In order to be a participant in this I must post a giveaway on my blog. I love giveaways!
So here goes, all winners will be advised after Feb. 12th.
Each comment received on my blog from this point forward will be entered into the giveaway.
So what is the giveaway you say? How many winners?
There will be 4 winners for this giveaway and each winner will receive a set of 4 greeting cards of your choice. They can be birthday cards, thank you cards, thinking of you etc.
So be sure to comment and keep checking back, every comment = 1 entry in the giveaway.
