One World One Heart Giveaway










I am excited about participating in this. This is a webwide event being sponsored by Lisa Oceandreamer. The concept behind this program is to bring people together by linking those participants creating a web within the web. All you have to do to be a part is explained in detail at the One World One Heart blog and since I'm not sure of the rules of copying that material here, I will let you go there and read for yourself.

I am a new blogger, so please forgive any amateurishness of my posting or blog. Hopefully there will be some interest. For my giveaway, I am offering a collaged/decoupaged papier-mache heart-shaped box. When I first thought of joining in, I couldn't think of anything I had done that anyone would want. Then I remembered this box which I had started and decided that it would fit right in with the theme and the date of the giveaway. So on February 14th, I will draw a number and give this box away, that is, if anyone signs up, lol! The box is decorated with various bits including vintage postage, a vintage stamp, and pieces of ephemera and paper. It is antiqued with gesso and paints and glazes, both inside and out and top and bottom. I will also be including some extra surprises so that I am not just sending an empty box. Please make sure there is a way to contact you, so no anonymous posts. I will let you know you've won, so you can send me your mailing address.

I will mention that I do have pets, 2 dogs and a cat, just in case someone has animal allergies. I did my best to avoid including any pet hair in the making of the box, but you never know. My kitty likes to jump on my art table to supervise.

Thanks for checking out my blog and participating in my giveaway.


Editing to add I will end the drawing as of 8am CST on the morning of the 14th. Hopefully I'll be drawing and announcing the winner that morning before lunch, as I will be going to help my Mom some that afternoon, since it is my day off.

I am amazed that I am getting as many responses, since my blog is very new and not very out there. If the number goes above 100, I will give away a 2nd prize, which will be the tag collage which I posted about previously. Hope that this will be an acceptable prize, even though not very Valentine-ish. It is 3 coffee-aged tags collaged and glued to a antiqued map-covered canvas. It ended up being about immigration. My grandfather immigrated to the US around 1900 from what was then Germany(he was just a young boy). So this piece made me think of them coming into New York all those years ago.

Here is a pic of that prize possibility


Not sure why that is not clickable to make it bigger, but here is a link to the original post so you can see the canvas better.
