And the winner is . . . me!

Well, One World, One Heart 2010 has come to an end.  My magic carpet has been washed and hung to dry before I store it away for another year.  Whew!  What a fun-filled, but dizzingly busy few weeks it's been.

I've been all over the world . . . Moldova, Germany, Scotland, England, Israel, and Australia, just to name a few. It is humbling, exciting, and somehow reassuring to find so many talented and kind people strewn all around the world. And I do believe that was just the intent of this event as it was conceived by Lisa Swifka years ago.

I asked my personal random number generator to produce a number between 1 and 254 (omitting one duplicate and one who took herself out of the running -- she'd won my earlier giveaway).  Precious random number generator, who had the day off of school today for the federal holiday, exclaimed "thirty-six!"  And so it is.  Astrid MacLean of Astrid's Artistic Efforts wins the scarf.  Astrid, I'll get a'knitting right away.  I already had the yarn, but wanted to wait to knit it until I knew for whom I was knitting.  I hope you wear it in good health and deep happiness. 

Thank you to all who visited and for all who hosted me and, most of all, thank you to that wonderful Whimsical Bohemian for bringing us all together.

Hello Renee - Thanks for visiting my blog. You've won a little original watercolor painting at my blog. I had trouble with your email. Just let me know where to send it. Please respond by 2/18/2010.

Dear Renee,

The magic carpet is a wonderful concept and I discovered it to late, but next year I plan on taking part and now I just need to figure out what it is going to be.

Congratulations to the winner, I am sure they will treasure the scarf as it comes from your hands and made with heart.

Warmest regards,

That sounds like a fun event. Maybe I will hop on board next year. Your lucky winner will be blessed by your handmade scarf! It is so much fun connecting with people across the globe, isn't it. Hope you are having a wonderful week. I'm off to take my dd to swim and I'm heading to the gym. See you around soon.
