One World One Heart





you can click on the pictures to enlarge if you wish!

Welcome, to my little home in blogsphere.  I’m Jo and I have been blogging for almost 3 years.  I have been crafting all of my life … One of my favourite projects is Dolly ….  I remember sitting on the floor of the local library and finding this amazing book on doll making … the dolls were are so beautiful and perfect … I brought the book home and at the ripe old age of 7 I made Dolly.  Now I didn’t have all of the required materials but Dolly was and still is my favourite doll … she is now 46 years old and she seems to be falling apart at the seams but hey, we all do that at some point in time!  Love heals us!  Lately I am into paper crafts including cardmaking, scrapbooking and mixed media collage.

sorry i cant get this shot to rotate ... i have no idea what is up with that ...

This is my first time participating in the One World One Heart blog event…   This world wide event is in it’s 5th  and final year and is hosted by Lisa Swifka.   It is a stellar way to meet artists and view their work.   To find a list of all bloggers taking part in this world wide event, stop by A Whimsical Bohemian.

I am offering up a couple of little prizes made by me  …

Prize #1 - Three vintage spools with ribbon made from muslin, tea dyed and stamped with French text,
Tea dyed flannel ribbon and butterfly stamped melted satin ribbon.

photo taken from the front

Prize #2 - 4 handmade cards with envelopes.



To win you need to comment on this post before February 17th as I will be drawing for the prizes on that day using a random number generator.  Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you.  This draw is open to my fellow bloggers worldwide.  If I am unable to reach a winner within 48 hours I will redraw a new name.  Only one entry per person please.  The first winner picked will get their choice of the prize they want.

Peace, love & paper
~Jo

Michaele said...

Hi Jo! My doll is "Ninny" and she is well loved- you should have heard the commotion when my DH stumbled across her during our last move and thought she was a charity donation item! Oh my goodness!

He now understands Ninny's place in our home. Whew!

Your spools are sweet!

If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll drop by both of my giveaways (at Twigs and Tulle and Kindergarten’s 3 R’s: I’m giving away a mini bunting and some pattern blocks) during this awesome blogging event! Happy OWOH!

Hello Jo, it's lovely to meet you and visit your blog which has a wonderfully friendly feel to it.

I think your photo wouldn't rotate because your dolly was being mischievious! She doesn't look her age at all and wasn't you the clever one in making her at such a young age!

I love your cotton spools and cards and hope you'll stop by and see my giveaways too on my blog.
