One World One Heart 2011

It's that time again for the yearly One World One Heart giveaway.  This is so much fun and there are already over 800 entries.  I have no idea how I'm going to be able to visit all of the blogs but I'm going to give it a whirl.  It is so much fun to meet new people in blogland and discover new artists.  This is the fifth year of the event and my third time to participate.  I'm sad to say this is the final one that Lisa Swifka is doing although I imagine it is a lot of work to do this every year.  The rules are posted here and the blog roll is here. On the morning of February 17th I will 'draw' a name and announce the winner here on my blog.

So for those of you who are new to my blog let me introduce myself.  I live outside of Atlanta, Georgia, theoretically in suburbia although there are cows down the street.  When I first moved into my house in 1998 I could hear roosters down the way and the stars in the sky were so vivid.  Now we have shopping centers and a lot of what I call light pollution.  Still a little bit in the country and the North Georgia mountains are within sight.  I work 40 miles away in almost downtown Atlanta in a law firm as manager in the IT department.

I'm a bit of a workaholic so I don't have a lot of free time but I love being creative and exploring new techniques.  I actually started out scrapbooking which morphed into card making which has morphed into mixed media collaging.  I also want to play with making jewelry so that is next on the list.  I also love photography but have been woefully neglecting it.

So for my give away is a recent collage I did on 12x12 watercolor paper.  I used paper, fabric, antique wall paper, paint, postage stamps, a Donna Downey tree stamp and buttons.  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment saying hello.  I look forward to "meeting" you.

This is a very sweet and beautiful piece. Please enter me into your giveaway. I love trees. When I was a baby, my mom planted a willow tree in her yard. I grew up with that tree- it was my friend. Then when I was off at college, my mom cut it down (the roots were invading her house foundation). I cried.

Please check mine out for my OWOH giveaway!

Hi Laurel! Such a pretty collage!
Sounds like you live in a nice area. I love the country, but need to be near ppl for students. I can see the mountains from my windows but town is close.

Susan said...

Hi Laura, new follower here! I LOVE this collage, it speaks to me. Probably because we live in the woods with all forms of creatures, and I know well how fast society can close in around you, luckily it can not get too close here. Sadly for us, though, the nest is empty and we both aren't in great health so we'll be selling and heading out once my WC settles.

Anyway Please count me in, and PLEASE come visit #209
thanks, Susan

Lovely blog.
I know it's hard to work and find time for all the creative things we want to do. I am also happy you found the time to do this little collage. The colors are fantastic and I love the tree and the little hearts.
I am off as it is late, but i did want to visit one last blog tonight. So happy i came by.
