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.
