A Wonderful Trip

I had a wonderful time travelling through the Internet to meet so many fabulous bloggers! I look forward to many more hours of visiting all of you to enjoy your brilliant artwork and creativity.
I thank everyone who came for a visit and left a comment for me. I enjoyed reading your comments and hope that you will visit me again.
Most of all I would like to congratulate PEA of Canada, who won my door prize.
I want to express my appreciation to Lisa for coordinating and hosting this years One World One Heart Event!

2011 One World One Heart

Welcome, Friends!
I am so thrilled to be participating in this year's event...and so happy to have friends come for a visit to see my current projects, swaps and other adventures! I became familiar with this event last year, however I did not participate. I am so happy to be able to participate this year. I thank Lisa for bring the world of bloggers closer together and organizing such a great event.
I love art in every form and love to create- it can be with paper, fabric or yarn or any medium that inspires me! I love treasure hunting at thrift stores with friends on Saturdays to bring home something that will turn out to be something other then what it is! And I adore vintage.
So please leave a comment and let me know a little about you!
I have selected some of my favorite things as a door prize, so please leave a comment and on February 17th I will select a winner!
The first prize is a hand knitted scarf constructed in an eyelash yarn, you can even choose the, black/brown or plum! Rose is shown wearing the black one:
If you find yourself in a creative rut~ perhaps chewing on some of life's big questions might bring you out of it.....for this I have a copy of SoulPancake.....

I have this sweet pair of pink heart earrings have been created for a swap they are so cute to wear. And then the fabulous stash of collage materials that includes papers, images, laces, and embellishments!

My Purple Heart

When I opened an email and found that I was invited to participate in a shades of purple inchie swap, I raced to sign up! There wasn't a lot of time to create, but I managed to collage a handful of inches all dressed up in purples! I can't tell you how thrilled I was to open my purple decorated envelope and pulled out this stunning fabric heart collage ! Inside, beautifully arranged were the most precious inchies.

The hostess of this swap made this wonderful display for all the participants!
Thank you, Susan!

Sweet Treat's for Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is one special day of the year. It is devoted to love! This year my vintage candy box is filled with sweet treats from a "Sweet Swap".

I open my box and we have a "Sweethurts" selection.

Following is a fun little cupcake with a wee little cherry on top!

This next sweet has a very sophisticated flavor!

This treat is a vintage little sweetheart which hid a box of conversation heart!

And the last sweet in the box is a vintage valentine!

I hope your Valentine's Day is filled with love and sweet treats!
