the one world one heart giveaway was so much fun… i didn’t get to make it to even a quarter of the blogs, sadly, but i enjoyed the ones i got to visit and the several people i was able to meet along the way.  i am still going to visit each of the participants’ blogs — it is important to me to say hello to all who participated.  thank you everyone for such a wonderful experience!

it will take me a bit to get a hold of everyone directly so if you see this before i email you, congrats!  i will need some of your mailing addresses but don’t fret — i’ll be contacting you by tomorrow.

And…

because my finger twitched at the end there and i had a little guilt (double clicked the random generator just before the number displayed so it COULD have potentially thrown something off), i asked my son to come in and do me a wee favor.  i said “pick a number between one and one hundred eighty-eight”.  he said “twenty-nine”.

so…. miss sarah.  my dear sweet que sera, sarah of Hen Fruit, you win a non-framed 4×6 print of the black and white man.  it’s is perfect, too — i was so trilled that my little man picked your number because one of the projects next on my list to finish is that “house of fertility” piece that you said you loved and i said i would finish and send to you.  so you get two fetile pieces of art, my friend.  hope that’s not too many!

sarah and kerin — you have the same birthday.
it’s frida’s birthday too, right?

on a side note, i think next year i’ll keep it to two or three winners.  🙂  this took me almost four hours to post.  i say this with giggles and am sooooo not complaining — this has been fantastic and fun, and so great to meet so many new, wonderful people.  thank you, lisa!

it will take me a week or three to get everything out so please bear with me.

lastly, and on a pretty weird note, there was something eerily cool going on when i used the random generator to pick winners.  for every category i was choosing, the winner had specifically stated that they wanted that item.  it was pretty thrilling.

One World One Heart was created by Lisa Swifka in 2007 as a way to bring bloggers together from all over the world. Last year over 900 bloggers from 28 countries participated! i am quite pleased to be participating and will be giving away the following:

ONE

black and white man and woman, mixed media art, collage

your choice of EITHER the black and white (er, black and coffee stained) man OR black and white woman, framed and matted in a 5″x7″ frame (as a 4×6 print).

TWO

an altoid or similar tin, with four frozen charlottes and some vintage buttons, nested in a bed of burlap and/or other fabric and/or lace.  it will slightly differ from the image displayed.

THREE

frida, ooak fabric and paper aceo

a OOAK fabric, paper, vintage lace and metal embellished ACEO/artist trading card with a lovely image of frida on it, made by me today, just for this give away.  the lace is obviously a tad wet still in the photo, sorry.  just wanted to get it up ASAP.

FOUR

cracled window effect PDF tutorial

TWO crackled window PDF tutorials (well one tutorial each for two people ).  if you win, i will send you an ever so secret link so you can download it.

FIVE

free digital collage sheets, give away

i will be giving away one digital collage sheet of your choice from my site: http://alteredbits.com to TEN people. (six new sheets being added this week, btw.)

i had another piece in mind to make for this AND a couple of other supply-type items so check back over the next few days as i will be adding it if i get the time. that’s cheap, i know, sorry.

when commenting, please let me know which item(s) you are most interested in. make sure i have your email address or some means of being able to contact you.  the drawing will be FEBRUARY 15th, 2010 and i will use random.org to generate winner — in the meantime, to remain sane, i’m going to number each comment so when the time comes, i don’t have to count a zillion times.  the winners will be posted sometime between the evening of the 15th and 17th (as i may be going out of town — my birthday is the 18th).  oh, and you MUST have a blog to win.

on a more personal note, i feel like a jerk for not getting back to a lot of you regarding bartering, or responding to emails.  one issue after another around here — short story this time is that i injured my neck and back horribly and haven’t been able to move much.  being on the computer and phone hurts so i’ve been avoiding it all.  huge apologies, especially to donna and jill and johnna and keriny ninny and the wonderful barterers.  i’ll get my act together soon, promise.  🙂  and AFTER that, i’ll post pulp contribution photo.  wohooo!

P.S. I think OWOH players have broken Blogger this evening.  I can’t leave comments on any of those.  Good thing I have WordPress.

Yesterday I read a very touching blog on the Country Folk Art blog a new friend of mine named Tammy that I’d met in Kerin‘s Mixed Media Art ning group. She has started a silent art auction to help raise money for her friend’s little girl Alexis Grace who is very ill with cancer. She is holding her own, but still quite ill.  Having gone through issues with cancer myself and after having a tremendously ill son for two years of his life, my heart goes out to this family and this precious little girl.  Click on her photo to read her mama’s blog post.

In the spirit of this silent auction, I would like to put a few items up for auction. The auction will end on June 12th. All bids should be emailed to me directly (hi at alteredbits dot com) and top bidders will be announced here on my blog on the 12th, at which time I will contact you for shipping and payment information. All payments will be sent directly to Jill, Alexis’s mama, and made payable to Seattle Children’s Hospital.  All necessary information will be provided at that time. I will pay for all shipping fees.

Item One:
Figure 3: Bird Cage (Limited Edition Art Print)
This measures 6×8 and will be printed on high quality acid free, lignin free, water resistant matte photo paper of 8.5×11 size (you can cut to frame or leave “whole”). This will be signed and numbered in the bottom right.

Item Two:
Chapter 5: The Bird Lady (Limited Edition Art Print)
This measures 6×8 and will be printed on high quality acid free, lignin free, water resistant matte photo paper of 8.5×11 size (you can cut to frame or leave “whole”). This will be signed and numbered in the bottom right.

Item Three:
Page 571 (I think I name this something different every time) (Limited Edition Art Print)
This measures 6×8 and will be printed on high quality acid free, lignin free, water resistant matte photo paper of 8.5×11 size (you can cut to frame or leave “whole”). This will be signed and numbered in the bottom right.

You are also welcome to make a cash donation for Alexis and her family if interested. I know times are tight for a lot of us right not but every little bit helps. I will provide that information when I have it available.

Here is a sweet little video to leave you with: Alexis with her big sister and mama singing on at their church on mother’s day. What a precious little angel she is! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T_pHBLOayw
