2011 One World One Heart Event

~

The 2011 One World One Heart Event hosted by A Whimsical Bohemian is finally here!

OWOH was created by Lisa Swifka as a 'giveaway event to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way'. Click here for more information on the event and for a list of other participants.


Thank you all for the first 100 kind comments!  I love reading them and I'm having so much fun visiting your blogs in return.  To celebrate the first 100 comments, I am adding a second giveaway option.  If I reach 200 comments, I will add another!



Giveaway #1 ~


The first giveaway prize I am offering for this event is an Expressive Paper Doll Kit using a color of your choice. 
The kit includes an instruction sheet, template and basic supplies that will help you make a charming paper doll using different collage techniques and items you may already have at home. You will end up with your own unique version based on my pattern for a poseable 8 1/2" paper doll.




Giveaway #2 ~

The second giveaway prize I am offering are two vintage publications.  'The Country of Aunis and Saintonge' was printed in 1926 in French and is full of black and white prints on uncut paper.  'Coronet' printed in 1938 is one of only 18 issues and is full of black and white photography and color prints.  This will be great to use in your mixed media art or to actually read for a bit of historical reference.






To win one of these giveaways, all you need to do is leave a comment (on this post only) by February 17th. Sadly, this is Lisa's last year hosting the event. I, like many other veteran participants will surely miss this annual event. Any comment left on this blog will qualify as an entry but, with this in mind, please feel free to share your knowledge of similar blog events, challenges or "parties" that I and other readers may be interested in.

The winners will be chosen (using an online random number generator ) and announced on my blog on February 18th.

  1. Hi Melanie,
    I adore your expressive 'paper' dolls, especially Mz Frenchie with her onion johnie striped top and beret. Lovely work!
    I remember when these Breton onion seller came over to the south of England with their bicyles to sell their wares!

    Drop by my blog if you have the time.

    There is so much to love here, Slimey! And your etsy shop filled with magic. I love The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and your air balloons have inspired me to create something in honour of my childhood memory of his adventures.

    It was your doll that caught my attention, lovely. I had a hidden love for dolls and now I create them.
