giveaway!! - one world one heart

the other day my doll making friend witchylana told me about One World One Heart
it sounded fantastic so i had a quick look - im lucky she told me because this is the last one that Lisa (creator and host of One World One Hear) will be doing it.

so the whole idea behind this web-event is connecting bloggers to each other. (click the image above to visit her awesome site)

the coolest thing though is that i get to do a giveaway (a door prize!) to one random person who comments on my blog - i have had a box of things i made last year that i keep meaning to list on etsy but haven't got round to it yet. so this is the perfect opportunity for me to pass on a couple things to a lucky winner. i will be doing a random number generator on the 17th February to pick. each person will get a number when they add a comment e.g. first person to comment = 1, seventh person to comment = 7 and so on.

so i should introduce myself;

hi, i'm Rhiannon
(a.k.a Riz, Riznan, Rizzle and sometimes Peggy)

i love leopard print, have two cute cats, am 21 and love cucumber and mayonnaise sandwiches. i love painting, johnen vasquez comics, drinking coffee through a straw, and taking photographs.
i work in admin at an tertiary animation institute in auckland, new zealand. i am currently working towards getting my certificate in arts and creativity from The Learning Connexion which is based in wellington. i enjoy baking, and drinking ice-cold milo!

so without further adieu - the door prize:

i call these little handmade plushies "squishies" - this is one of my favourites so am so happy to be able to pass her onto a good home :)

i love this little guy - another one of my handmade plushies :)

both of these prizes are handmade by me, they are both one prize (not separate ones) so make sure to leave a comment (and a link to your blog - i can't wait to check them all out) to be in to win. i can't wait to give this door prize away and make someones day! who doesn't love getting free stuff in the mail?!

there are two rules though, in order to be able to win the door prize; you must have a current, active blog to participate and you must leave a comment below. but that's it!

so let the comments begin!!
