I'm sorry but the deadline is here! I won't be taking any more comments towards the drawing. I will be drawing the 9 winners later on today and announcing them as soon as possible. Thank you all who visited and participated!
WELCOME! And THANK YOU for stopping by my Blog! I've rolled out the Welcome Mat (my special Magic Carpet!) for old friends and followers and new friends to be from around this great green earth of ours! I am pleased to have stumbled upon the blog of Lisa Swifka, A Whimsical Bohemian, it is a fantastic blog , you must save that link and go back and visit it often. I honestly don't know how I got there, I go through dozens of emails per day and hundreds of websites, especially when writing for my own blog or just looking for something and one link leads to another, but somehow I found this wonderful event. Designed by Lisa in 2007 it is in it's fourth years and each year the participants grows abundantly.
UPDATE!!! I will be taking entries until 6am EST Feb 15th , then I will draw the nine winners and make an announcement later tomorrow morning. Thank you all for visiting me! :)
In a nutshell each participating blog owner is offering a heartfelt giveaway. When you get your ticket you go to the link above and you will see all the participants from around the world listed on the right sidebar. Just click on them and you will be taken to a page on their blog similar to mine. You will see this same poster. Visit them, learn about them a bit and leave a comment and you are entered into their giveaway. All winners will be announced and posted on Feb 15th (unless otherwise noted on individual blogs).
What a wonderful way to draw us closer together? I love it, I am just sorry I didn't know about this back in January when it started, I would have had time to plan better but since it's still open until the 8th I am throwing my blog in to the wonderful mix!
So welcome fellow Bloggers from around the world.
Rules: Very few!
Please leave me a comment so I know you were here and tell me what country you are from! Also please make sure that your icon links back to your blog where your email is listed somewhere so I can contact you if you are a winner! That's all you need to do to be entered into my drawing!
I am sorry to say I don't have a giveaway all prepared, but between now and the drawing date I will make something special just for this occasion, and knowing me, it will be more than one, so we may have many winners! (Please see below for update) For those who are new to my blog I already run a weekly giveaway on Mondays, called Mystery Monday, you can look back through my blog to see what that is about. I also have other weekly features such as:
Team T International Tuesday where I highlight a member of my etsy team which is composed of all kinds of artists and craftsmen/women.
What's New Wednesday - where I let you know what's new with me, my artworks, shops, contests I'm entered into and more. This coming week I will reveal the creation I made with the Beads I received in a huge Bead Soup Party Swap! So if you love beads and Jewelry stop back and see what I and over 80 others have created with our 'Soup'!
Thrifty Thursday I share what I've found in my searches and also from my many emails that will help you stretch your money further so you can have some left over to help others and buy craft supplies! :) Also eco friendly tips!
Feed Your __________ Friday, this day I present something to feed your soul, mind, body or as the case in this post, your creativity and sharing and learning about others. Always something different, and hopefully inspiring for you!
I don't post much on the weekends, time to rest, and regroup, but sometimes I have pre-scheduled posts, or reminders about the Mystery Monday giveaway to get your entry in, or maybe just share with you some of the joys I find outside my window each day with all the wild life in my yard there is always something interesting or amusing going on! So I hope you will enjoy your time here and please come back again, or subscribe to RSS feed or click on the Google button over my followers in the sidebar! Let's not let this be a one time visit, I'd love for you to come again!
Now getting back to the GIVEAWAY.......................
I am currently in a large bead swap which will be revealed next Wednesday so as I finish off my project for that I may also make something special for the giveaway here. I will try and post pictures of them as soon as possible.
Right now we are bracing for a Blizzard, BRRRR, and I haven't had great photography weather but will do so as soon as I can. If you would like to know a bit about my artwork you can visit my shop in the sidebar or my Flickr site for more pics!
I can tell you this, although I am mainly at present an Artist working in Polymer Clay, I also like to do paper art, recycled and re-purposed art, collages, photography, textile art projects and more! So it could be anything! The anticipation makes it more fun, don't you agree? :)
Again Welcome!!! I am so happy to have you visit me and I hope you enjoy your time spent here and will come back soon!
Now get on your magic carpet and ride on out to discover more wonderful blogs!
GIVEAWAY UPDATE! I love it that so many have come to visit me even though I started late. I have been gathering some prizes together and so far have these teasers to offers (no pics I still like the idea of a surprise!) Something green, something heartfelt, something to inspire, something to be creative with, something to wear, something to read, something to share, something for fun AND something to listen too!
Ok, I couldn't resist, must post some teasers for you. Some of these are prizes, others may be components I may use to make you something with. I'd love to tailor each prize to the winner drawn so these may change.
That's right, one prize for each day I have been on the ride!
How's that to peak your interest? :)
Again, thanks to Lisa for organizing this fantastic event!
