The greatest creations are those that as you create them, you get lost in your thoughts, by the time you're tired of thinking you're holding in your hands, something from deep within...

Welcome inside my head, my heart...

OWOH - One World one Heart Blog Giveaway is here! :D

Hello Everyone, it's wonderful to see and meet you!
Won't you join me on a magical carpet ride? :)

Lisa at A Whimsical Bohemian (http://awhimsicalbohemian.typepad.com)
Started this awesome event in 2007. The idea was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet through a blog giveaway. Last year there were over 900 participants! To find out more about this event please check it out at:
http://www.oneworldoneheart.typepad.com/
be sure to visit some of the others on the list! :)

I participated last year and it was so much fun I'm excited and thrilled to do it again! I met so many wonderful people... Thanks Lisa for creating and hosting such a wonderful event!

My giveaway is a small, one of a kind - 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 INCH - Mixed Media shadowbox style wall hanging created by me. :)

It's made primarily of recycled, natural found items, left over project pieces, lots of love, glues, textile hardeners and acrylic paint.

Work in progress pic:




















and here are a few updated pictures of the piece basically finished.
It was not easy to photograph something metallic!



















View in the shade....


















Side view: I love texture!

















Here's how to enter:

Simply leave a comment on this post! :) You may still enter even if you don't have a blog but please be sure to leave me a way to contact you in your comment.

Last chance to enter will be Feb 14th, Midnight, EST.
I will be using the automatic generator number picker thing to select the winner. It'll be announced here on February 15th and you will be contacted either via blog or email.

If you've won and receive an email/comment from me please get back to me asap. If I don't hear anything back within 3 days of the deadline I'll redraw the name thinking you fell off the planet, which I hope is not the case!

Sound fun? Then, great luck! :)

oh! I almost forgot, I also donated another small 2 1/2 inch x 5 1/2 inch wall hanging / ornament type piece for the ADO blog giveaway :) Here's a quick picture of it.
To see it better, click it to enlarge.



Pop over for a chance to win it and meet some amazing artists. There are 17 prizes being offered!














As always, thank you so much for visiting, I hope you will come again soon. Have a super~fantastic and wonderful day!

Big hugs,
Sprite
