One World One Heart 2011

It's giveaway time again! One World One Heart (OWOH) 2011 begins now ...

My name is Dawn Supina and I enjoy meeting Creative People, ART-making, Antique Malls and Home Decorating. I try to live frugally, green-ily, godly and simply. I also have a passion for painting gently-used upholstered chairs (check out my other blog, Art & Life if you would like to see some). I have been blogging ART of Humungous Proportions since 2005.

This year I will be giving away two hand-drawn bookmarks (made with recycled cardboard) and adorned with pretty fibres ~ I call them Tree Hugger Bookmarks. I will also include some original B&W photos ~ "Instant Ancestors" for the winner to enjoy. These adopted family members make great additions to mixed media paper arts, or as conversation pieces when they're included in a family photo album!
A warm welcome to everyone who visits during OWOH and enters my draw ~ it is open to active bloggers from all over the world, and the winner will be chosen randomly on February 17th. (All you have to do to win is leave a comment!) Make sure you leave the information that I will need in order to contact you if you win! I also hope you will come back soon to visit my blog again. Enjoy!

What's up Duck? said...

That's a lovely prize. I'm always reading, but my bookmark is always just whatever they give me at the store or whatever scrap I find at home. Also love old photographs. I'd never ruin an original in mixed media but that is what scanners and printers are for. Then one can still enjoy the originals for years to come.

Please include me in your draw.

Instant ancestors.....I LOVE it! And I would be thrilled to have one of your tree-hugger book marks as well! I'm usually found hugging tress outside my home...seems only right. ;)
Count me in for your give-a-way, and I hope you can swing by and visit me as well.
