Handcrafted Items Rule One World One Heart 2010

26 Jan

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.

  32. Carapace January 29, 2010 at 8:42 AM #

    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!

  33. caren January 29, 2010 at 12:17 PM #

    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.

    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.

  76. shona February 1, 2010 at 7:04 PM #

    Oh lets see, it is hard to choose a song. I love all the oldie song from the 50’s and 60’s (giving away my age). But since I have to choose something, I will choose the theme song from Titanic.
    BTW, thanks for visiting my blog #977 and entering for the purse.

  100. Tabitha February 4, 2010 at 1:39 PM #

    Ooh, that’s tough. I guess I’d say my favorite song, at the moment, is “Say Hey” by Michael Franti (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehu3wy4WkHs) — it’s just so catchy and makes me smile every time I hear it.

    Yay for giveaways!

  130. June February 8, 2010 at 9:50 PM #

    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

  131. Sandra H February 8, 2010 at 10:20 PM #

    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!!!!

  145. SpiritMama February 11, 2010 at 1:42 AM #

    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.

    Amy – How delightful! I almost didn’t enter because I couldn’t think of a favorite song, but what the heck…I’ll just have to choose one (with the reserved right to change my mind again. And again.) 🙂

    Truly my song favorites depend on my mood – so right now, let’s go with “Crystal” by Stevie Nicks. Such a haunting song and the lyrics always put me in a good mood!
