One World One Heart

It's One World One Heart 2011 time.. I am so excited to be able to participate in it this year. It's a meeting of the blogging community from all over the world. A chance to meet other bloggers and make new friends. Each blog is having a giveaway that will run from January 30 - February 17, 2011 at which time all the draws are made. This event has been running for 5 years and although sad it is the last one I am very happy to be able to participate this time.. I can only imagine how much work it is for Lisa Swifka from A Whimsical Bohemian. Thank you so much..For more information on this wonderful event.. click either the logo or Lisa's link above.

Welcome.... I'm a folkart painter first and have been for years.. I do alot of craft sales and shows in and around Manitoba, Canada. (Which by the way is -43c this morning with the wind chill..brrrrr)
I discovered prim and upcycling and haven't looked back. I love to turn something unwanted into something useful and pretty again. My Mom introduced me to  Quilling, the art of Paper Filigree and with it came my love for all things paper.. which has led me into ATC's and mixed media art.  I had a hard time deciding what to use for my giveaway so have picked two items...so you will have 2 chances to win...
This is a handpainted 5x7 canvas with my favorite saltbox house, sheep and willow tree on it. with "Live Simply" a rule that I am trying to live by. It has a jute hanger but could easily be framed if that's what you wanted to do with it if you won.
The second giveaway is my first ever altered art larger canvas.. The background is done in a brayered paint style with various shades of whites and the lace is incorporated right into the paint.. tea stained lace and flowers added. This is a 5x7 canvas and has a ribbon hanger on the back.

I'm opening my giveaway to both bloggers and non bloggers with thanks to all the wonderful bloggers that I discovered in this event before I had a blog and that I still follow today... Just make sure you leave an email address that I can contact you at if you win...
I am so looking forward to meeting you and seeing what you are up to, and visiting as many blogs as I can.
Please leave your comment under this post only and only 1 comment per person please.  I will announce the winners on February 18th.. my time..lol..
Good luck!

  135. Hi Kathy, I would love to win your beautifully handcrafted canvas and salt box house, and altered canvas art project. How sweet! Please visit my blog, too. I am the author of "16 x MOM: A Mastery of Motherhood." I am giving away my book and a couple of laminated 4 leaf clovers.

  136. Yes! Live simply is a wonder focus to have in our every changing world that can get so chaotic! And your altered canvas has a lovely message as well. What an inspiration you are! Count me in for your give-a-way, and I hope you can swing by and visit me as well.
