OWOH began as a way to connect bloggers around the world whose paths might not otherwise cross. According to OWOH creator and host Lisa Swifka, this event “transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, and religious beliefs.” The event has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception in 2007. Last year, bloggers from 28 countries participated in the event!
One of the things that makes this event so special is that each participant offers visitors a chance to win a gift that they have chosen from their heart. After much thought, I decided to offer visitors the opportunity to win a beautiful journal from my personal collection. I picked one of my favorites because I wanted the recipient to have something really meaningful from me. The lovely combination of handmade paper containing pressed flowers and unlined paper makes it perfect for artistic journaling!
