I'll be posting winners information tonight!
Have a wonderful day :)
One World - One Heart was organized as a yearly blog event by the marvelous Lisa Swifka of A Whimsical Bohemian. OWOH gives bloggers all over the world the chance to meet, chat and get friendly. Oh, and of course, anyone who is participating will be giving away a gift! If you'd like to find out more about it, and see a list of the (last year over 750!) participants, please go to this link. A great thing is that it seems to be very crafty/artistic! Some of the awesome prizes include art dolls, necklaces, scrapbooking stuff, collages, fine art, quilts, mixed media pieces of all sorts, notecards....I think you probably get the idea ;)
Who am I, you ask? Well, I'm a wife and mother to two lovely sprites - a 5 year old and almost-3 year old. We share our home with a sweet German Shepherd and a funny, energetic black & white cat.
Me & the kids - taken last April
I do have a day job, working in the admissions office of a local college, and by night I do my creating. I enjoy playing with baubles, wire and metal, and have been busy experimenting with paints, mediums, colored pencils and other art supplies.

My addictions are books (historical fiction, fantasy, and the occasional paranormal fiction....but not Twilight, can't get into that, tried, didn't work...), chocolate, and sweets. Oh, and buying supplies - gemmy goodness, wire, art supplies, one can never have too much! I also spend way too much time on the computer, playing on the web, Etsying, hopping from blog to blog. (Have you found Estorbo yet? He's my current fave!) And while I don't have horses now, horses are an obsession. I am definitely an animal person too ;) What don't I do? Uhm, cook. That's a disaster. Truly. Oh, and I'm a disaster at being domestic...heh.
Anyway, that's "me" in a nutshell...and so let me tell you a little bit more about OWOH....
Lisa has been running One World, One Heart every year since 2007. And this year will be the last year! As such, let's try to make it a resounding success - I know a number of bloggers are planning big giveaways and celebrations of sorts, so please do try to check out everyone who's participating! Let's make Lisa feel appreciated for all of the work she does for this fun party ;)
For my part, what I will be offering is five "somethings"....I'm still working on them, and will post them when they are complete, but here's a bit of a teaser. One of my gifts will be these earrings-
Handwrapped Sterling Silver and Chalcedony with hand-formed earwires
Another will be these-
Copper hoops - handformed and hammered for strength and texture
Please do check back occasionally to see what else I'll be offering! It's sure to be good :)
If you'd like the opportunity to win, please leave a comment below and make sure (if you don't have a blog) to leave a current email address! You have until midnight on February 17th to leave a comment.
Happy Journeying, fellow Carpet Riders!
