One World One Heart (Giveaway Closed)

Hello, and welcome to my blog! I'm participating in a wonderful event called One World One Heart, a fun event where bloggers around the world share a little bit about themselves and post a little giveaway. 

So, let me share a little bit about myself.  I'm a stay at home mom of 3 little boys living in Texas (though I grew up in California, first living on a boat, then moving to the mountains.).  I'm a Christian.  I'm an artist.   I like writing, creating, gardening, exploring the nature in our backyard with my kids, and many other things.

Now, for my lil' door prize...



Some glass beads! I finally got a picture up of them. :-)

(No, I didn't make them myself...just some I had extras of).

TO WIN MY DOOR PRIZE
To win, leave a comment and a way to contact you (your e-mail, or your blog link is fine so long as you allow comments and check them).    Open worldwide, to anyone over 18. Entries accepted until 9:00 pm CST Feb 17.

JOIN IN
If you have a blog and would like to participate, you can still join in until Feb 12th.  Find out how here.

  5. Isn't it funny how one can not have too many beads?
    And the OWOH event is an excellent one to bring bloggers together. I've found so many new blogs I would never have otherwise.
