Since my little bird is sick and in bed early, I decided to use the Random Number Generator to pick the winners instead. So here are the numbers that were picked and the 3 winners of my felted soap..... Amanda, Geni and Jona! I've sent emails to the winners so hopefully I can send their prizes soon!
Now do you remember my funny lady transfer drawing? I did a special drawing for her and she is going to live with Lola now! Hope she brings you some smiles Lola.
Thank you all for visiting my little blog and I hope you'll come back by to visit again sometime. I've thoroughly enjoyed this experience and hope to get to every blog on the list, some day! And a HUGE thanx to Lisa for creating this spectacular event! Can you even imagine how many blogs might participate next year?!

This one is called Burning Tree and the line "burning tree upon the hill and burning tree within my heart" is painted in yellow along the tree trunk.
This painting is titled Bolted Door and the line "Break down the bolted door, rip open, spread and pour" are painted around the door.

I'm so excited to be joining in the One World One Heart blogland giveaway this year! This is such a fantastic idea that Lisa Swifka came up with a few years ago. And it's grown and grown every year since. If you're interested in finding out more or joining in the event click the link above. Anyone can join in before Feb. 8. and there are links to over 500 participating blogs on Lisa's website.
This event is a wonderful way to connect online via individual blogs. From painters to writers to photographers to jewelry artists to chefs to knitters, so many people share their passions, skills, adventures, triumphs and challenges on their blogs. Some baring their souls while others just give a taste. I find it fascinating!
The OWOH event is meant to encourage us to visit new blogs, connect or reconnect with people from around the world, be inspired and maybe even win something great! Speaking of winning something great, here are my give away items...
Aren't these colors luscious? I'll be gifting TWO people with fuzzy felted soap! Yes, it's really felted soap and if you've never used felted soap before, you're in for a treat. To use this soap, all you do is submerge the whole thing in water, felt and all, then put it to your body and start scrubbing. The wool is naturally anti-bacterial and acts as a feel-good exfoliant.
I used a vegetable based soap that is lightly scented with natural essential oils and has a spicy citrus fragrance. It is not overpowering as I am sensitive to intense fragrances myself. Although if you're not interested in the felted soap, I'm also giving away this funny little lady...
She is a 6"x9" oil transfer drawing over a topographical map that I then drew and painted with watercolor pencils. She has some unique features that endear her to me. I hope she makes you giggle too. So, do you want to win one of my 3 prizes? Yay!
Now here's how it works, you must leave a comment, only ONE comment, with this blog post. (Duplicate comments and spammers will be deleted) Make sure you include a way for me to contact you if you're a winner. I will pick the winners at about 6pm United States Pacific Standard Time on Feb. 15. My daughter, Raven, will pick the winner from a hat (likely a witches hat altho she's been sporting a cute black bowler lately). Anyway, thanx for stopping by and playing... I hope you win!!!

Isn't he darling! He's so small he lives on my flat screen computer monitor now. Thanx so very much Michelle!
On Day 8 we opened gifts from the daring Dawn Sellers. Talk about creepy kool, look at this...She made a leather heart pin with a metal zipper edge and a big EYE in the middle! I dig this, it is so clever and just plain fun! Thanx Dawn!!
On Day 9 we opened gifts from jubilant Julie Molina. And what a treat it was, a super groovy cuff bracelet that tells me Nevermore! Thank you Julie, it so freakin' fantastic!
