One World One Heart

Yup, it's that time of year again. Lisa Swifka is hosting her One World One Heart event, which she says will be her last. What is not to love about this?! In Lisa's own words:

"One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world….Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog in various countries, and meeting all the fabulous people behind them. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world."

I have two things up for grabs for this go-round. Both of them made from clay, which has been a bit of a deviation for me from working on paper, but both of which come from my heart; which is why I decided to put them out here.

First up is what was coined (by I forget who at the moment) as the three lovely sisters:

Love, Hope and Trust. Made from air-dried clay, stamped and finished.

The second is a box of five fortune (or intention) cookies. Made from paper clay, stamped, air-dried and finished. By the way, you can't eat them, but they do come with inspirational notes inside which you can replace with your own notes or intentions.

As the rules go, leave a comment here before midnight on February 17 to be eligible to win either of these goodies. I will use a random generator to pick the winners. Don't forget to check out all the other participants over here.

The fortune (intention) cookies are delicious! They have a special place in my cabinet. I love, love, love them.

greetings from Pennsylvania.
enjoyed checking out your blog....really like the coffee post alot. great concept. and can feel your pain with the glasses. I can't even watch TV anymore without them, and YES I have a leash on them made of beads so I can pretend they are a necklace.....going to get some of those wild looking cat eye glasses soon - may as well make them outrageous!
and btw, those fortune cookies are the cats meow and the dogs bowwow. hope so much i win them.

They're precious! Happy Chinese New Year to you!

greetings from new york city. i've been exploring your blog and really enjoying your posts.

love your wordless photos (especially the birds - wow! - city me is jealous)

virtual coffee - i followed the link and love the whole idea of getting together this way. i really appreciate your explorations of self and your willingness to share the insights.

your blog list, too, offers lots to explore. in short (ah - too late) i'll definitely return. i feel a kinship and that, for me, is the hope of owoh, and rare, at least for me.
