Ciao ciao from Italy! I found out about a great blog hopping event called One World One Heart and it’s actually the 5th and last year, so I had to participate myself. Moving from Los Angeles, California to Tuscany, Italy really opened my eyes to new worlds and experiences…but has also made me realize how wonderful it is to be able to connect to anyone in the world over the Internet. I’m so thankful to be able to blog and share my experiences with others. Although I love my new home and Italian culture, it’s nice to be able to read, speak and listen to English from the USA as well. I’m all for technology, but of course it’s the people behind the computers that are really doing wonderful things. We are all using technology to communicate and support each other, which is just uber cool. That’s why I love the spirit of this event, One World One Heart… it’s for active bloggers to meet with each other, discover each other and connect. Officially, this all starts midnight Jan 30th and ends on Feb 17th.

You can see the list of all participants here and thanks for stopping by my blog whether it’s the first time or if you are a regular reader. I am so thankful and grateful as always.

Everyone participating in this event provides a door prize…so I’m giving away a simple leather journal I made for sketching or writing. Measuring 6×8.5 inches, this journal is sewn together by hand using blue embroidery floss. It’s one of my prototypes from a while back, super simple black leather with blank white Fabriano 90 g/m2 paper inside. The closure is a vintage button with an anchor etching (marine theme) that you slip through the front flap to secure. A random commenter will be chosen on Feb 17th to receive the journal, so comment away and good luck! Anyone in the world can participate – I’ll send it anywhere 🙂
