One World One Heart Giveaway

This Giveaway is now closed, I just need to learn how to 'actually 'close' it
.......aah worked it out
I will be choosing 3 random numbers out of 166 comments.
Good Luck to all who visited and entered !

Click this logo to find out more and to find all the other people taking part, with links to their blogs in the Gypsy caravan

It started on 19 January and ends on the 11th February at 6pm when a winner will be chosen at random. I will announce the winner on the 12th February ASAP.

All you need to do is leave me a comment ON THIS POST and be sure to include your name and email so I have a way to get a hold of you if you are the winner! It's that easy!

My Giveaway will start with this, a Packet of our Handmade Masala Chai Mix, seeing as I have recently begun a Blog for the Rainbow Chai Tent, as well as my own ArtNomadix Blog, and making comments on your blogs tonight, my Username keeps displaying as Rainbow Chai Tent. I will add some other items to this and add them into this post when I have got them together and taken a photo of them in a group, ( Some eclectic yarns, beads and surprises I can only imagine at the moment) but I must post this now and send the email to Lisa.

To learn more about The Rainbow Chai Tent or to order more Chai go to our Main Website

OK here's an Update with more photos of my extra giveaways. My laptop has been playing up these last few days since I joined this OWOH, and so I haven't been able to load the new photos let alone post them here,.....so .... here they are,

No 1 is A full packet of Chai plus a small selection of little extra selected items, from these next photos

No 2 is a small sample bag of chai, (in one of our soon to be 'Collectors Item, Bags', as the packaging will change to a box,.... sometime in the future.....) plus a larger selection of wool and beads, and extra stuff ( things I have kept for some reason or other, and have decided might be of interest to folks who live in totally different types of countries.

No 3 is a small sample bag of Cha,i (Like above), and the blue Neck cosy to keep someone warm somewhere, plus some of the extra paraphenalia abpout Australia, seen in these coming photos .

I will email the selected winners giving the first drawn the first option etc thru to the 3rd drawn lucky blogger.

I'll be closing these comments very soon,..... after dinner, .......seeing as it's most probably the end of 11th Feb over there now too. It's actually 18:43 of the 12th Feb here now ! Lol.

But first it's time for dinner Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
