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!

All you need do is leave a comment at the end of this post and I will pick a winner on the 17th February!

Thanks for coming by...............

  20. You have such an eclectic background! I myself am an Eskimo (truly, from Alaska) living in Oz (Kansas' "fancy name) with her husband and children (and cat, don't forget the cat!). I'm a full time kindergarten teacher who happily loses herself in antique malls, bookstores, sales racks and her crafty nook. I most enjoy paper crafts and crocheting, but am branching out, little by little as I discover new-to-me crafts.

    If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll drop by both of my giveaways (at Twigs and Tulle and Kindergarten’s 3 R’s: I’m giving away a mini bunting and some pattern blocks) during this awesome blogging event! Happy OWOH!



  21. I've enjoyed looking around your blog, you've created so many different kinds of pretty things! I hope you will visit me, too!

  22. Hello! Nice to met you on my trip around the world with the OWOH event.

    I'm a bead & doll artist here in Ohio. I still work full time at the hospital so when I have time, I dabble here & there. Love taking new classes to learn thing to add to my pieces. Oh and I have three Scotties!

  101. Hi Gigi! It's so great to meet you and learn more about you. We really do have quite a few things in common! You have a lovely blog here and I would love the chance to win one of your door prizes. I am a sucker for books, so that would be my first choice... but the scarf is beautiful too!

    I'm so sorry that you've lost your dear mother also. Even though it has been nearly a year and a half for both of us, I find it surreal and still expect to hear my phone ring in the morning knowing it's her. We are too young to have lost our dearest souls and can't wait for the day we'll see them again.

    Sweet Thoughts and Happy Creating!
