One World-One Heart Blog Tour Begins!

Welcome to my blog!  This is the fifth and final One World - One Heart event sponsored by The Whimsical Bohemian.  Over the days of this event, bloggers can visit hundreds of other blogs and enter free draws at each one.  It's a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers, find inspiration and start new friendships.  Prize draws will take place at the end of the event on February 17th.

I started blogging a year ago and the One World - One Heart event introduced me to many wonderful bloggers who I have continued to follow.  One of the best parts of my day is spent visiting my favourite blogs with my early morning cup of tea in hand.  And I love reading the comments that other bloggers leave for me.

I am a mixed media artist (as in mix of media because I enjoy trying so many different things).  I enjoy sharing my work and my processes, as well as glimpses of my life.  

My draw prize is this packet of handmade paper cards made from plant fibres and recycled paper.  Block prints. Envelopes included.   Winner will be selected by random number generator at 8:00 pm PST on February 17th.  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment with a link so I can notify you if you are my winner.

I hope you'll join us for this fun event.
