One World One Heart Giveaway

*Edited on 15 Feb"
This giveaway is officially over! Thanks to everyone for your participation.

Whoo hoo! I'm doing a giveaway. Finally.
I wanted to do a giveaway when I did my 100th post. But I forgot. This is my 138th post.
I wanted to do a giveaway when the number of followers hit 50. But I forgot. My followers has since hit 70. Thank you guys.
I wanted to do a giveaway when my son got into the school of his choice. But I forgot.

Finally I wanted to do one but was afraid no one would take part. I'm such a worrywort.

Today I decided to take the plunge and do a giveaway with One World One Heart. It is a global giveaway running annually for the 4th year. This is the Oscar of giveaways. It is created by a woman who can type very fast. Okay I'm just making that up. But I know she has a lot of typing to do. The last I checked, almost 700 blogs had participated. That's 700 links she has to check and type. The owner of the poor fingers is Lisa. And she is a whimsical bohemian. She started this madness to get bloggers to meet, interact and win a freebie or two.

Now, the important part. What's my giveaway? No, I'm not giving cash. It's against the rules. I think.
Remember the passport cover I made for Viv?

The winner of my giveaway will get:
1) A unique handmade passport cover made by moi - I can't show you any photos because I haven't made it yet.
2) A mystery gift - it is something you can use to make something else. Can you guess what it is?

So, if you would like to win the 2 items, please read the rules for entering below:
1) You must have a blog to enter.
2) You must be human. Hurhur. (somebody needs her medication...)
3) You must leave a comment in this post.
4) You must be contactable.
5) You only need to enter once.

Giveaway ends 15th Feb 2010. Please check Singapore time top of sidebar.
*Edited on 28 Jan*
The winner of this giveaway will be determined by either a random number generator or some other equally random method.

*Edited on 14 Feb*
Any comments after 15 Feb 12:01 am Singapore time will not be considered.
Thank you.

How can I, The Diva, not take part?
I like to have a passport holder to replace the orange plastic cover I bought from a cranky old woman outside Immigration Dept for S$2.00. She told me that if I didn't buy, she will have no money for lunch that day.... A diva must have passport cover befitting her lifestyle :]

Seriously, if a nonhuman entered your contest, I think it would present some serious issues far beyond the scope of this giveaway...or else really expand the whole OWOH concept!
Also, yay passport cover! Sorry, you distracted me.
Glad you joined the Ride!
