One World One Heart 2011
I've been so busy lately, I almost missed this year's blogging community gathering, One World One Heart. As this is the last year the coordinator plans on hostessing this lovely gathering, I'm so glad that I managed to get a post in at the last minute.
Think of it as a global "open house". We fly from blog to blog around the globe catching up with old blogging friends and meeting new ones. As I've been on a somewhat unplanned blogging hiatus for a large portion of last year, I'm looking forward to getting back into the groove of things in 2011.
If you haven't visited before, a little bit about me? (And if you have been here before - Hi! Long time no see!!!! HUG) Well, as you will see by the time you get to the end of this post, I'm rather good at being silly. This is my general blog and it's mostly full of fun and laughter, travel, good food, some of the cutest grandchildren and pets you'll ever meet, my garden, odd scenes or nature that catches my eye on my many walkabouts, my favorite books, and regular cups of tea. Sometimes I even take a break to be philosophical or wise. (But don't worry, it's not often.) I also have a studio blog where I talk about art and creativity and sometimes even have my own creations to post about.
Each participant offers a giveaway. This year I'm offering a choice of gifts. The winner of my giveaway can choose between:
a) A 5" X 7" print of any photograph from my blog that is a) my photograph and b) does not include an identifiable person. You're free to wander my blog and find one that speaks to you but to give you an example, you might choose this one:
Or perhaps this one:
Or how about this one?:
It doesn't have to be one of these samples of course. There are many photos to choose from over the years.
If you don't have any more space in your home for an art print, you might instead choose a pair of faerytails. What are faerytails you ask? Well, they're like pigtails, only a lot more colorful and at least twice as fun.
Here's a photo of my daughter-in-law wearing a pair of long black and white faerytails I made for her.
Or another example, here are Lisa and Joli wearing some green leafy faerytales.
I can make them in a color (or color combination, including rainbow!) and length of your choosing. (I might not have a lot of all colors - I don't have many purple supplies, for example) I can make them for either an adult or a child. They will come as a pair but can be combined to make one large single faerytail as well. They are tied into the hair with an elastic band, easily taken on and off, and can be worn over and over again.
If you'd like an opportunity to win my giveaway, please leave your name with a link to your blog or email address in the comments to this post. Deadline to enter the giveaway is midnight PST on February 17.
When you're done visiting here, here's a link to bring you back to the One World One Heart participant list. I hope to find time to come and visit many participant's blogs over the coming week but, as I also plan on doing some major house painting this week, well..... we'll see. It might depend on how much caffeine I can ingest and how little sleep I can function on.
And after your travels around the cyberglobe have ended, please come visit again!
