One World One Heart - Blog Event & Giveaway


A Whimsical Bohemian has put together a blog event to bring bloggers from all over the world together to learn about each other and enter giveaways. The idea is to generate a closer community between humans through blogging. This is a worldwide event that brings bloggers from every corner of the earth together.

Before I go on with the giveaway, I'd like to tell you a little about myself and what my blog represents. I have followed blogs for almost three years now for the benefit of peeping into the lives of others, forming online friendships, and entering giveaways. With the help from an online friend, the foundation of Heck Of A Bunch was started last May.

I am fairly random in my blog in that I post about whatever comes to mind. There are a few specifics that I blog about regularly:
1. My Family - I am a 33 year old 9-1-1 dispatcher married almost eight years to an auto technician. His three daughters (ages 15, 9, 7) came into my family of three kids (girl 15 and boys 11 and 10). We are a blended family, but not always by textbook standards. I enjoy posting about our daily lives, the happiness and the chaos.
2. Bargains and Deals - Being that there's so many mouths to feed, I not only find it necessary but enjoy finding the best bang for my buck. I post about the steals and deals that can be found online as well as the great buys that I've come across while shopping.
3. Reviews & Giveaways - My family and I review a lot of products. We give our honest opinion in regards to the items and hope that it gives the readers information they would like to know. A lot of times, I also sponsor giveaways. All of my current giveaways can be found on the top right hand side of my blog under 'My Current Giveaways'.

Come join the magic carpet ride that is known as Heck Of A Bunch.

Now on to the One World One Heart giveaway you've come here for:
Let me put it out there that I'm soooo not crafty. My mother tried to pass her crafting skills on to me, but I've failed her miserably. Therefore, I am going to give away a couple of new items that I have on hand.

The first is a Feng Shui Sake Cup Candle Set. The candles are individually wrapped in plastic and this set has never been used. I'm not sure what the symbols mean, but it would make a beautiful set to add to your home.

The second is for a new Chip & Dip Tray. I bought more than I needed, so I'm going to pass one one for the giveaway. It is made of hard plastic and has a pretty winter scene throughout.

Win It!
One person will win the candle set and one person will win the Chip & Dip Tray.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment.

Please include your email address in the comments. Giveaway is open WORLDWIDE. Giveaway ends 2/14/10 at 8 pm CST. Winners will be randomly drawn and will have 48 hrs. to respond to email notification or a new winner(s) will be drawn.
