My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

One World One Heart 2010 giveaway

This is the first time I have taken part in this fabulous event. The One World One Heart giveaway event was started by Lisa a few years ago to bring bloggers from around the world together who would never ordinarily meet :D What a fab way to make new friends and also be in with a chance of winning some amazing goodies from those that take part. If you'd like a chance to receive one of my little giveaways then hop onto the magic carpet and join in with the fun.
The giveaway is open to ANYONE but you MUST leave a comment on THIS post to be entered into the draw. If you don't have an active blog then you must include your email address in your comment so that I can contact you should you be a winner.
The winners will be notified on or immediately after 15th Feb which is when the draw will take place.

I have 3 little giveaways .... firstly this mixed media piece.

secondly I have a fabric arch ...

and finally for those of you who aren't 'into' crafty bits... this handmade bracelet which you could give as a gift if you wouldn't wear it yourself :D

Be lucky... and if you'd like to know more about this event and/or would like to take part yourself... then you can find all the info you need right here.
