I am Ellen Lai, aka SingTatter, from Singapore. I have dabbled in a lot of crafts in my pastime, but tatting is my favourite so far and my forte. Don't know what is tatting ? Check out my blog for more tatted laces and the talented tatters in my blog list on the right.

One World One Heart 2010
Hello, and welcome to my blog and my special announcement of the global "One World, One Heart" bloggers event! This event is created and hosted by Lisa Swifka, and a great way to get to know other bloggers from all over the world.
This is my first time participating in this OWOH, and I must say, I'm not quite prepared. So, in order not to miss all the fun, I have decided to make the prizes for my giveaway personalised. And what can be more personal to you than your name ?
The prize will be your name to be tatted using Anna Valeire's alphabet pattern. I have here a few of the names I have tatted before. Using Gutermann Sulky Cotton 30 variegated threads, the alphabets are about 5/8" tall, and they will be glued onto a ribbon and slipped into a thick plastic sleeve (1 5/8" width, 10" length). In order to accommodate the plastic sleeve, the maximum is about 16 alphabets. If your name is 5 alphabets or less, I'll throw in a pair of large paper clips with your name tatted on them too, my own designs, like these:
But I must seek your understanding, as I can only start tatting after the event closed, please allow me 1 to 2 weeks from your confirmation to tat them and mail out. And I hope I will have your permission to post the tatted name on my blog subsequently.
This giveaway is open to bloggers everywhere and runs until 15 Feb 2010. Just leave a comment on this post and BE SURE there is a way to get back to you. You can either leave your name (to be tatted) and colours preference in the comment, or let me know only when you are the winner. I will try my best to match your preference if I have the thread colours I will draw 2 winners with the help of a random number generator.
