OWOH 2011 Giveaway

UPDATE: I will be drawing two names to win a word weave made by me.

Greetings all,

My name is Teresa, otherwise known as Tess. Welcome to my little piece of heaven in blog land. I am a poet at heart and am published on Associated Content. I love to craft and learn new techniques to create with my hands. I'm pleased to meet you.

It's that time of year again. We will be celebrating Lisa Swifka's 5th annual OWOH Event. OWOH stands for "One World One Heart". This event is open to bloggers only and is expected to connect hundreds of bloggers from around the world. This is my 3rd year to participate. I found OWOH while visiting a blog 2 years ago and had so much fun that I participated with a giveaway myself last year. I had so many commenters I added an extra giveaway. It was SO MUCH FUN.

For this years OWOH giveaway I have decided to create a word weave for one lucky blogger. The weave will include not just a word but a prayer or favorite verse or poem. I will create a weave just for you and send it on the wings of friendship. Since the word weave will be created with you in mind you may choose your words or color scheme. Your word weave will arrive ready to frame and will be much like the one pictured below:

This weave was created with water color paper, water colors, gold pens and mounted on card stock. I will try my best to create something that will fit into your home or offices color scheme. Imagine a favorite prayer on your wall that only you will know is there (and I of course). Or an inspirational verse that guides you throughout the day. Just leave a comment to let me know you were here and your name will be included in the draw. (Don't forget your conact information.) This blog event runs through February 17th. One entry per person please. I will choose a winner using the random number generator on the morning of Saturday, February 19th and post the winners name on my blog. You will be contacted as soon as your name is drawn and posted. I apologize for the delay in drawing but my Cub Scout leader duties must come first. (Thursday is Cub Scout meeting night.) I may try to do the draw on Friday evening.

I hope you will enjoy browsing through my blog and then winging your way over to the OWOH participants page and visiting other bloggers in this great big world of ours.

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Safe,


Comments are now closed. I will pick and announce a winner on of before the 19th. (Hubby and sick and I have Scouts tonight. I knew you'd understand.)

Noemi said...

This is a fantastic prize. I am terrible at expressing myself with words, that's why having a blog is so challenging for me and I admire people who can write, but you are going one step further, you can make words even more beautiful by displaying them in such a way.

A big hug from Spain.

Hi Tess, well I finally made it to your blog. I would love to win your beautifully handcrafted word weave art project. How sweet! Please visit my blog, too. I am the author of "16 x MOM: A Mastery of Motherhood." I am giving away my book and a couple of laminated 4 leaf clovers.

Katie's Nesting Spot said...

Thank you for visiting me, I'm like you and trying to frantically fit in as many last minute visits as possible:) Hope you're enjoying hopping as OWOH comes to an end. Your word weaves are such a cool idea, don't know if you are familiar with Ali Edwards...she's big in the scrapbooking community. But she advocates choosing a misson word for the year. I was thinking when I saw your work, that it would be such a special way to commemorate whatever word you've picked for the year.
