It’s the end of January and while I'm trying to stay warm and marveling at all the snow we have here in central Jersey, I'm also dreaming of the spring and my garden (and the mud!). But before I go too far off into thoughts of spring, I am taking a little trip through the blog world, courtesy of One World One Heart. Doesn't the name just sound wonderful?! In its fifth year, One World One Heart is an amazing event organized by Lisa Swifta of A Whimsical Bohemian, who I might add is a very talented artist and she must not sleep because I just cannot figure out how she has time to do all she does as well as OWOH. Of course, there is the possibility that all of the characters she creates come to life in January and February to help her?
I am very excited to participate this year. Last year 1,088 bloggers from 40 countries took a two week whirl wind tour of each others blogs. What is OWOH? It brings together bloggers across the globe who share a common interest. For me, three things make this fun, first there is this long list of blogs (1,088 last year!) that I can meander through, visiting people around the world, knowing that they all are connected by One World One Heart. This is better than the random visiting I seem to do. Second, everyone has a door prize and you can leave a comment to enter to win! And finally, I am hoping to make some new blog friends. Here's my door prize.
|Handmade note cards from original watercolors|
Three handmade blank note cards (and envelopes). The images on the cards are from my original artwork. The note card on the left is the Bar Harbor Shore Path, the top right is Long Pond, Mt. Desert Island and the third card is a sure sign of spring, Tulips. My medium of choice is watercolor. I’ve tried pastels and colored pencil, but always come back to watercolor because I love the freedom. My favorite thing to paint are landscapes and typically I paint somewhat abstractly. I’ve recently started to look for other things to do with my artwork. These note cards are fun. Adding the different papers with the images is kind of like framing artwork. I’m also experimenting with jewelry and fabric but both of those endeavors will require a bit more time. Before the end of OWOH I may have a few more cards to add to this bunch.
How to win? Leave a comment and your e-mail before midnight, February 16th. The winner will be selected using random number generator on February 17th and announced the same day. The cards will be mailed shortly thereafter.
Thanks for visiting. Hope to see you again.
