One World-One Heart Participant!

Photo

I've decided to join in the fun this year and do the One World-One Heart 2009 Challenge. Lisa Swifka began this give-away challenge three years ago in an effort to join artistically inclined bloggers from all around the globe together in the spirit of friendship.

I've received so many positive comments here in blogland and elsewhere about my "Where Does My Strength Come From?" Pendant Brooches that I've decided to offer one from my current batch as my OWOH Give-away. All you have to do to enter this drawing is leave me a comment on this post. The giveaway runs through February 12th so there is plenty of time to enter and send all your friends!

The current batch is finally complete and this is the brooch that will be given away.


The brooch features an encapsulated section of a spine from an antique book and is titled "Where Does My Strength Come From?" signifying hidden strength.

Read the original post for more of the details about the creation and meaning. And remember - the photos will be updated and so will this post to reflect the actual pendant to be given away when it is ready (sometime around January 27th) so be sure to check back if you want to see it!

Now, be sure to click on the OWOH logo above and check out all the other blogs that are participating - the list is over 400 strong and growing!

  4. i've bookmarked your blog - wonderful wonderful work and - i'll return with more time to appreciate it fully.

    so much of the collage i see, especially online, seems disjoited, with no sense of order. yours remind me of the sublime collages of kurt schwitters: so much created with so little.

    i hope you'll visit my blog - i'm participating in the giveaway too - and perhaps my photography site at www.pbase.com/magpiejst as well.

    thanks for sharing your work - it's inspiring.
