Handcrafted Items Rule One World One Heart 2010

In my ever-growing quest to win stuff on other people’s blogs, I discovered One World One Heart (OWOH).  OWOH started in 2007 as a way to bring artsy bloggers together—and to give away amazing handcrafted creations.  After seeing some of the items, the over 500 bloggers (and the list is growing) were giving away, I thought to myself, “Self, you like to give things away.  Why don’t you participate in this international fun fest?”

So I talked to the Queen of Quirksical, the fair rules of Etsy shop, Quirksical Creations.  “Fair Queen of Quirksical,” said I, “would you consider being a good will ambassador to the people of the world by providing a gift certificate to your Etsy shop as a special gift to one special reader?”

She gave me a smile and nodded nobly.  And do you know what her Majesty did?  She bestowed upon me, not one, but two $15 gift certificates to her shop (One for Backseat Writer and one for Atypical Musings).  And apparently, the Quirksical artisans are working overtime to provide more items for the shop, so when the contest winners are announced here on Feb. 15, there will be a plethora of beautiful items from which to choose.

Free shipping will be offered for the item(s) purchased with the $15 gift certificate–no matter in what kingdom you reside. On behalf of the Queen, I apologize for my misunderstanding.

All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me (and the Queen—she’ll be checking in) your favorite song.  That’s it!  Be sure to enter on both sites [here and Atypical Musings]!  I’ll be using random.org to pick the winner.  Please only enter one time on each site.

Amy’s note:  I want to respond to each and every one of your comments, but I don’t want to throw off the comment counts.  A few of you have pointed out (mostly via e-mail) that I didn’t share my favorite songs!  Forgive me, but there are several:: “If I Stand” by Rich Mullins (all-time fave), ” “The Hammer Holds” by Bebo Norman, “Every New Day” by Five Iron Frenzy, “Beloved” by Derek Webb, “All Along the Watchtower” by Bob Dylan, “The Cure for Pain,” Jon Foreman, “When You Come Back Down” by Nickel Creek, “I’ll Stand By You,” by The Pretenders, and “Fireflies” by Owl City (fave current song!)  Seriously, that was hard because I left out SO MANY faves like “Defying Gravity” from WICKED.  By the way, you are always FREE to shoot me an e-mail at amy@backseatwriter.com.

  8. My favorite song would be “hands” from Jewel, because I love the whole meaning of it. Thank you for this amazing giveaway! count me in, xo mendy

  9. Oh how fun, such a great idea, awesome giveaway. Fav song…hmmm..love most music, it is so hard for me to say, I don’t think I can pick a fav.

  10. Please enter me in your draw! Also pop over to my blog, have a browse around and enter my give away. I’m number 303 on the magic carpet 🙂

  11. Just ONE favorite song? Not, say, one for cooking and one for partying and one for feeling soothed on a busy day?

    Ok, I guess. It’s probably Ocean Crossing, by Arlo Guthrie. But you wouldn’t know it, if you knew me, because I keep it special and play it rarely. It’s precious, not an everyday song. Just a wonderful one.

    Glad you joined the Ride!
    OWOH Ticket Holder #21

  12. Wow! The Queen is generous! I have a bizillion favorite songs but I guess if I must pick one it would be On The Sunny Side of the Street. It makes me think of my Dad – he loved to whistle and sing that song.

    I would love to win your giveaway and thanks for visiting mine!

  13. Ok welllllllllllllll………this is an easy one for me ~ The Beatles, “In My Life”. For as long as I can remember, no other song stirs emotions in me like that one.
    Now for Mom, #524, Helen’s Vintage Wisdom, it would have to be Annapola ( a real oldie but goodie!)
    So much fun reading the other favorites!!
    TY, Nancy

  14. Since I already commented on your other blog, I figured I could pick out another of my favorite songs for here :).

    “Add to the Beauty” by Sara Groves

    Thanks for the post and your fun giveaway!

  15. Don’t enter me, but I wanted to jump in on the fun question. I just got the new Lady Antebellum album and LOVE a track called “If I Knew Then.” And am I a huge dork to like the Taylor Swift/Boys Like Girls “Two Is Better Than One?” Because I do. Those are this week’s faves.

  16. How fun and witty! I think my favorite song would probably be
    They’re Coming to Take Me Away – Dr. Demento. (I love anything that makes me laugh) Thank you for putting my name in the draw! And thank you as well for entering MY giveaway as well! It’s nice to ‘meet’ you! Cheerios!

  17. Tell the Queen thank you!

    I guess for now my favorite group would be Puppini sisters and the song would be “I will Survive” but I have lots of favorites so it’s hard to commit to just one. 🙂

  18. All hail the queen and her giveaways. Let me think of another favorite song, this time a grown up song. I really like I Left My Heart in San Francisco by Tony Bennett.

    Thank you for stopping by Atlanta and visitng my blog.

    Foxy G’s Den of i-KNIT-quity, #113 on the Magic Carpet Ride: http://bit.ly/8lvmSC

  19. One of my favorite songs is “The Waters of March”, written by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Thanks for riding the magic carpet to my blog (OWOH #799).

  20. Thank you for visiting my blog #840. Your Queen is so generous, thank you and Her Majesty. My favorite music is jazz types like Big Noise in Winetka. If you need something with words, how about Scotch & Soda.

    Also, I would love for you to stop by my blog to enter my giveaway – #548.

  22. Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls because the first line is:

    “And I’d give up forever to touch you
    ‘Cause I know that you feel me somehow…”

    I lost touch with my true love for 27 years and there was always a large part of me that would have done just that. Given up forever just to touch him one more time.

    And then I FOUND HIM again. HAHAHA oh the joy. And we got married and we are living happy ever after.
    So thats why it’s my favorite song.

  23. Thanks Amy,

    Thanks for the lovely giveaway.
    I am blog #937


  42. I couldn’t find your profile to see where you are from…nice looming though, I enjoy the ribbon hat…in the meantime music is far to important to me to have a favorite…I go through phases of listening to the same cd’s over and over, lately it is Warren Zevon singing Knockin on Heaven’s Door and Neil Diamond singing Oh Mary…but for pure inspiration it has to be Jose Cura singing Nessan Dorma by Pucini, full blast, always makes me hold my breath and brings tears to my eyes…thx for visiting my blog, June

  43. I rode over from #1091 thanks to your visit there. My fave songs seem to change over time, but I don’t tire of the New Radicals – You Get What You Give or Debussy’s Claire de Lune.

  44. Thanks for visiting my blog, Amy, and leaving your kind comment!

    Your blog is so interesting that I had to stop and read some of your other posts . . . I’m totally off my schedule! LOL! I’ll be sure to come back and visit often.

    My favorite song would have to be the one from my wedding almost 20 years ago . . . All My Life by Linda Ronstadt . . . love that song!

    Thanks for the awesome give-away . . . keeping my fingers crossed!

  47. Wow, I wish I had known about OWOH before, how cool, I would have loved to participate. This is what I wrote on your other blog:

    I love anything Eric Clapton. In honor of Valentine’s Day, let me say “Old Love,” but I just saw a previous commenter choose Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Okay, I love that, too.

    Thanks for entering my giveaway, too, this is fun!!!!

  48. Every New Day will eternally remind me of my dear friend, the other Dani K. Probably her favorite song. I can’t pick a favorite song, but I’d say there’s a good chance that Over the Rhine is my favorite band.

  49. How fabulous of your majesty to bestow these gifts upon your loyal subjects!

    My favorite tunage would be “Old Time Rock and Roll” by Bob Seger.
