One World One Heart 2011

***NOTE:  This post will remain at the top for the duration of OWOH.  More recent posts can be found by scrolling down.  Thank you!***

It's OWOH time again, a very special event in the blogging community.  If you've not heard of it, or need more information, just click on the logo and you'll be taken to Lisa Swifka's (the creator and organizer) blog, where you'll learn everything you need to know about it (including how to participate.....and it's not too late for that).

If OWOH has led you here for the first time, let me tell you a bit about myself.  I live in the greatest city in the world, NYC, and I'm a lifelong crafter/artist.  I work with paper, fabric, metal, other words, I'm into mixed media.  I especially love to create little treasures from what others might consider trash.  I hope you'll come back for a visit, even after the OWOH event is over.

There are very few rules.  Leave a comment on THIS POST only, and you'll be in the running for a prize (or maybe prizes, depending on how many comments are left).  You do have to leave the comment here; I won't be checking facebook or twitter.  If you're also participating, please let me know in your comment so I can be sure to visit your blog as well.  I also must have a way of contacting you if you are a winner.  So please include your email address in your comment.  If you don't feel comfortable with that, write it out like this example, which will keep you safe from spam:  

                           janedoe at yahoo dot com

If your name is picked to win a prize and I can't contact you, I will pick another name.  The winners will be announced on February 17.

For those of you who are already regular visitors here (and I thank you for that), you might know that I'd been saying that I was going to be too busy to participate this year.  Well, I just couldn't resist.  So many of the wonderful blogs I follow I only know about because of past OWOH events.  And I know that many of the kind folks who follow this blog and are so generous in the comments they leave, found me because of OWOH.  It is definitely something worth supporting.  And Lisa has already announced that this will be the final year.  So do get on board if you can.

The purpose of this is communication, friendships, networking and more.  But as a little enticement, prizes are part of the deal.  One of the things I like to make are what I call art angels, pins or pendants made of bits of metal, charms, and keys.  I made one especially for OWOH, and this is the first prize I'm offering.  If there are more, I'll edit this post.

I've made many of these for friends who were ill or recouperating from surgery.  I don't claim they have any special powers, but everyone I've sent one to has made a full recovery.  I'm just sayin'...

Stay in Touch,

Shariyah said...

Hello from New Zealand! You have a beautiful blog, and I love your giveaway. Does this key hold special powers for, perhaps, brain overload? I have a serious condition. Like, I can't sleep at night because of it! So, other than the fact that it looks super cool, and I love it, the powers would be awesome too! :) Please enter my name in to win! And if you haven't already stop by my blog where I'm giving away an original painting, by me. I'm now a "follower", so "I'll be back" :)
Thank you for the chance to win, and I look forward to visiting again soon!
Peace & Love,
