|Hello Bloggers around the world! This is my first year participating in the "One World One Heart Blog Event". It is the 5th and final year for this event so I thought I better jump in! If you would like to learn more about this click HERE .|
Ok so a bit about me. My name is Aimee, I'm so glad you could stop by! I'm 36, me, hubby, and two cats happily live in South Carolina, USA. My passion is being creative and learning as many new artistic techniques as possible. I love working with polymer clay, air dry clays, paint, and fabric. One or all of these mediums are at my mercy for doll making, dabbling in jewelry making, or wherever my muse takes me. I've learned to never say never when it comes to art or it's mediums. I would have sworn that I would *never* try embroidery, wasn't interested. That's only because I didn't know how to do it. Once I learned, I tried it and enjoyed it, but it might not be something I choose to do often. But seldom and never aren't the same thing, so never say never! The first time I tried working with air dry clay it was a disaster, I hated it! Now that I've learned how to work with, and get it to work with me..I love it and plan on using it a lot on my dolls and art in the future. So that's me in a large nutshell :)
On to the door prizes! If you are new to "One World One Heart" or didn't read the link above, it is about bloggers around the world meeting and getting to know one another through each other's blogs. Each participant offers a "door prize" as a thank you for stopping by, fun right? :) Last I heard there were at least 1,000 participants! This event officially runs from Jan.31st - Feb. 17th. So I thought a bit about what kind of door prize to offer. All blog events I've been in in the past were among doll makers, or people that like similar things. So what dear reader, could I possibly offer not knowing ahead of time what visitors to the event would like? Something that could span countries, ages, and interest? So since this is after all...One World One Heart...and I HEART YOU all! Or should I say EYE HEART YOU? Teehee..ok ok a way to slip my quirky sense of humor into the door prize :) Drummm rollll...
Polymer clay doll eyes, hand made by me. Not a sculptor or a doll maker? You could use them in scrap booking, Halloween jewelry? An interesting practical joke? The possibilities are endless! ;)
A polymer clay faux opal heart ornament, handmade by me. This one is hard to photograph but it's a pretty pale blue with reflective colorful bits just like a real opal. It could easily be put on a chain to wear as a necklace as well!
What's this then? A blank piece of paper? Hehe..this is the "YOU" part! I will also be making the winner an ATC (Artist Trading Card). They are small collectible pieces of art. I will create something based on what I learn about you from your blog! You never know what I will decide..it might be your pet, your hobby..etc. chosen by me and the winner will not know what it will be until they receive it :)
The winner will be drawn and announced on Feb.17th. I will also email the winner.
How to Enter:
Thanks so much for visiting!
****Edit: *Sigh* I'm kinda bummed, there were sooo many of you that I wanted to follow, and THOUGHT I was...I clicked follow. Google says it's usual confirmation that it was added to my followed blogs, BUT it doesn't warn you or let you know you have reached the follow limit of 300 until you try to manually add a blog. So I guess now I know, and I'm trying weed out my list a bit to make room :(
*Though you may still comment, entries for the door prize is now closed*
