One World~One Heart

Photo


This is such a special way for people to connect to share art, ideas and things that are special. At first I thought I couldn't manage the time to do it and then realized that it means a lot to me to offer something, as others have done. Really the generosity of so many has left me so inspired I couldn't wait a minute longer to make my contribution!

The first of two items is a torso tag design that I enjoy making, especially at this time of a year. It is my favorite bookmark to give away, although things can get a bit out-of-hand with the trinkets that I attach, alas, I do bling very well!







The next item is a Gothic Arch....an interesting mixed media art template that I discovered at the beginning of this year.





Yes, the winner will receive both.......mailed anywhere in the world!

I will also include some 'Moo' cards, see some examples below, also please sign my 'moo' guest book if you have one of my cards already:

Becky Vigor said...

Wow, what amazing prizes. I would love to win as I have made and traded many ATCs but have no gothic arches or moo cards. Please count me in, and come and see the journals I'm giving away.

sandee said...

This is a great idea! However, I just moved across country and have most of my stuff in storage. What I would like to do, is go into as many of the blogs as I can and sign in. If my name gets pulled by anyone as a winner, I will donate $100 to AIDS Foundation in memory of my brother. If my name gets selected more than once, I will up the ante an additional $10 every time it gets pulled (greedy I know, but one can dream!!!) If my name is not pulled by anyone, I will still make a $50 donation. This way, everyone is a winner.

I hope to get my name drawn at least once.
