A big welcome to everyone from OWOH...
If you just so happen to stroll through my door, linger a while and feel right at home. I am very excited to join in with One World One Heart 2011 This is a unique international get together and oasis of arty fellowship. This is the fifth, and alas, final year of OWOH - so embrace the chance to do some virtual globe-trotting and be inspired and possibly the receiver of a hand-made original gift by me and many others!
Just in time...I was feeling rather burnt-out, devoid of inspiration and energy and the passion of my former years. But, thankfully I found a new path to wander - one that led to a place that seemed to be just mine. A place to once again, discover, linger, savour and just be...divine!
I adore all materials - ink, paint, fabrics, papers, metal, buttons - whatever comes to hand and stirs the heart, I say. I can lose a whole afternoon just pondering over some lace...
I am learning everyday and hoping to nurture this passion with an eye on the future...
I am pretty good at waffling on (can you tell?) so a blog seemed like ideal creative therapy.
So that was my life...now to the give-away. As said, I am a lover of many forms and fancies, so I am offering two prizes which both reflect a bit of me.
The first prize is a small canvas - just 3 x 3 inches! It is decorated with collage, paint, lace flowers, stamping and vintage braid.
The second prize is a bag which I made last year. I love to sew and this project uses canvas circles which have been stamped and colour-washed and then sewn onto the bag with random stitching and buttons. I do love it - and am sad to say farewell - but I hope someone will have even more joy than me in receiving and using it!
If you would like to be entered into the prize draw, just:
a) Have an established blog and leave a comment under this post please.
b) Make sure you also leave some form of contact details (your blog/e-mail, etc.,) so that I can contact you should I need your postal address. Thanks.
c) Please visit One World One Heart and many other bloggers!
I will draw two winners on February the 17th and be in touch! All the best...Enjoy yourselves on this journey - have a good one.
With love and arty wishes from me to All of you everywhere...
