And I mean smiled upon me BIG TIME!!!! What a fabulous event,and this being my first year as a blogger, was the only time I participated. I met so many wonderful people, explored new and exciting art forms, overdosed on some amazing blog candy and genuinely had a great time connecting with people all over the world that I otherwise would never have had the opportunity to meet.
Now to be blessed with all these OWOH giveaway treasures just puts the entire experience over the top.
Opening this package took my breath away! This extraordinary pixie babe is created and sculpted by Rosanna, of
Rosanna's Art. The attention to detail is incredible. She is very, very special. If you appreciate doll artistry and fantasy art, you have to visit Rosanna. She's also very special.
I'm a huge fan of whimsy and was so happy to receive Elizabeth's email saying I won her moleskine journal.Elizabeth is a mixed media artist who specializes in animal portraiture. You can see more of her wonderfully whimsical creations at
Wind and Honey.
Jill, of Untie The Ribbons is the talented folk artist behind this mixed media shadowbox entitled Soul.I was drawn to it's unique and quirky look and it fits perfectly in my sunroom decor.
Fortunate enough to win another doll? Unbelievably yes! This was a mystery doll so it was with Christmas morning-like anticipation that I opened the package. I call her my haunting beauty though she really has no name. When you visit
Shauna Henry Original Art Dolls you can read the tale Shauna wove for her creation.
This heart makes me smile! This charming mixed media piece was made by Melissa, of Honey Girl Studio. If you're a fan of mixed media and digital art you are going to love her blog.
Another blog you'll adore is Kersten's Altered Gypsy. Her polymer clay shrine is simply stunning. Be sure to check out her altered books, 4x4's and postcard art. Her talents are extensive.
Deb, of Mosaic Magpie touched my heart with her sweet fabric heart.Deb's husband was critically ill in ICU most of February and she still managed to package and send my very pretty giveaway gift. I'm happy to say Deb's post yesterday reported her husband was home and on the mend.
I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each of these talented artists and wonderful people for sharing their OWOH creations with me. Each gift has a special place in my home offering me a daily reminder that blog friends are the best friends.
After my OWOH hangover wore off I visited my friend Jill's blog. Jill was celebrating her 1 year blogiversary at Bucks County Folk Art with a mystery envelope giveaway, and you guessed it. I won! An envelope full of papers, ephemera, stickers, lace and all kinds of assorted goodies.
Treat yourself to Jill's adorable Easter/Spring creations she just posted.
