From my poor neglected blog, that is. I know it has be MONTHS without a post and I have no excuses but apathy. The weather, the holidays, the economy…take your pick. But I’m trying to move past all that and ring in the New Year (almost a month late) with more blogging.
The One World One Heart project seemed a good start. Hundreds of creative souls banding together with give-aways to tempt readers to follow. Start with mine and then move on to the rest! If you get lost, I’m #658 on the list.
Something else to get the creativity jump-started is a Bead Soup Party hosted by a great cyberfriend, Lori Anderson. She match 80+ jewelry designers together in pairs with instructions to send a “bead soup” mixture to our partner. I should have my “soup” in a couple days and we’ll be unveiling all of our creations in February so stay tuned for that. My partner is Linda Lawrence of Bella Bead Jewelry
I’m busy working on new Joolz for ArtXtravaganza at the Webb School in Knoxville, TN again in March. Looking forward to meeting up with friends for a few days of fun after that.
That preparation has me looking at bracelets and redesigning many to lower the costs and give them a fresh, new look in the process. And I’ve been working more with wirewrapping and hammering. You can find some of those results on Etsy.
So two posts in one day. I think I’ll shoot for a couple of posts a week for now. Hopefully everyone hasn’t forgotten me!
ONE WORLD ONE HEART 2010 GIVEAWAY…
** Please make sure to leave a way that I can contact you: either a blog address or an email address. If there is no obvious way to contact you…I will have to delete your comment & you can try again.

Hop on the Magic Carpet and end up at the One World One Heart blog site. From there you can visit blogs from artists & bloggers from around the world. (but before you do that, read on & leave your entry!!)
I had a lot of fun participating last year and look forward to this year’s event! Here’s how it works…I’m offering a pair of beautiful earrings with Hill Tribe silver heart beads. You can see a picture below.
All that YOU need to do to enter my giveaway is to leave a comment on this blog post with either an active link back to your blog or an eMail address so I can reach you when I pick your name. ** Make sure that if you don’t have a blog that I can link back to when you comment, that you leave your eMail address in your comment so I have a way to reach you.
The OWOH event continues until February 15th. I will accept entries (comments) up until NOON (USA central standard time) on the 15th. At that point, I’ll draw a name from the valid entries and will announce the winner the evening of Feb. 15th. (Remember, I need to be able to easily contact you from your link or comment.
One entry per person, please. Let the games begin! (I know…they began yesterday, but I’m always a bit behind!) There are already over 600 participants!
The Random Number Generator has spoken and Comment #291, Ninnie of Ninnie’s World is the lucky winner.
I was tickled to get 311 entries, even signing up to participate late in the game as I did. I hope everyone bookmarks my blog to return to from time to time. I know I’ve added many new blogs to my list of online reading!
Hope everyone has plans for Valentine’s Day.
Here’s a nifty idea!
Lisa Swifka is the host of the One World One Heart Program. The way it works is artists around the world come together and each blogger offers up a prize. Lisa has compiled the links of all the different participants here.
All you have to do is post a comment in my Comment area. The comments section is open until Feb 11th 11:59 pm central time. I’ll pick a winner at random and will announce that person on Feb 12th. Please be sure to add your email in the appropriate box when posting your comment otherwise I will not be able to contact you.
And what am I giving away? How about this purple heart purse or backpack dangle? It features Swarovski crystals and Hill Tribe silver hearts on sterling silver chain and a large sterling silver clasp. You can also clip this to your jeans loop.
So comment away and I hope you’ll bookmark my blog and check back!
ETA: The response has been phenomenal! Thank you all for playing. I hope you look around while you’re here. I’m planning to check on everyone else’s giveaways this weekend!
