Tuesday 26 January 2010



Helloo bloggers!! You all know how ditzy I am, and I ALMOST forgot about the fantastic 'One World One Heart' event taking place between January 25 and February 15this year. So I'm one day late, but hope you will forgive me!!

For those of you who don't know, this has been running since 2007 and is a wonderful opportunity to get out there and visit lots of blogs (many, but not all, of which are arty or crafty) and have the chance to win some fantastic giveaways.

My giveaway will be this altered coaster book which I made for a swap but never entered. It looks a bit thin, so I think I'll add another page or two (the joy of using jump rings!!) and if I have a real creative rush there may even be another piece of art on offer. Well it is a special event!! All you have to do to be included in my giveaway draw is leave a comment on this post before 5.00 pm BMT on Monday 15th February. You must also have a blog to link to or be able to leave your email addy so that I can get in touch should you be the lucky winner.

As regular followers will know, I am a great believer in sharing our art and have a giveaway every month - the OWOH event will replace my usual monthly giveaway for February 2010.

But it's not just about me, put an hour or two aside, get a cup of coffee and a few choccy biccies - then click on the logo above to start your journey on the magic carpet ride.

There are a lot of blogs to visit over the next few weeks!!

UPDATE: Yes I did add some more pages, if you would like to see the inside of the book please look here.

I also did have a sudden rush to the head so here is a second prize. This is a piece of slide glass that has been 'enhanced' with fusible film and embossing powders. I have just put a simple leather tie on it so it could be a piece of wearable art (although I do find these a bit big but then er well so am I and things like this don't hang so well if you know what I mean) or you could just have it as a pretty hanging. I've never done anything like this before so I hope it will stay in good shape

I also have a little altered tag that has been stamped and collaged to give away. I made this earlier this year and thought someone might like it (or maybe not - tough!)

How many blogs have you looked at? I don't think I'll ever get through them all!! But it's great fun and the giveaways aren't bad either!! Thanks again for taking part and for all your lovely comments - I am doing my best to get round to everyone but regretfully time has been at a premium this week so please be patient!! Off to do a few more rounds on my magic carpet......
