sadly, the final year of one world one heart is coming to an end, but happily, i have three winners.  congratulations!

the winner of the frozen charlotte doll and recycled sari silk is:
Dawne Shaw

the winner of the “collaged bits” digital collage sheet pack is:
Fiona of My Artful Muse

and the winner of my “still” anatomical collage is:
Aimee Jeffries of Misty Moon Creations

i’ll be contacting you three ASAP to get your addresses.  well, except for the digital sheets… but i’ll mail those out soon.  tomorrow is my birthday and although that’s not exciting by the time you’re in your 30s, apparently there are many festive things planned around here for the next few days.  but it’s a secret and i have no clue what it is.  everything will be off to you lovely ladies by saturday at the latest.

thank you so much, all who entered, and thank you random.org for picking!  it’s been such a pleasure to meet so many wonderful and talented people.

it’s time again for one world one heart!  actually it was time about a week ago but i was a bit slow… what else is new, at least for those who know me.  for those who don’t, hello!  i’m alicia of altered bits, a little online shop with mixed media and altered art goodies — and i have some goodies to share.  i’m also a mixed media artist with an affinity for dolls/doll parts, anatomical “things”, rust and anything that’s old, tattered and interesting to look at.

this year i’ll be giving away three things.  first up, a small frozen charlotte doll with a little bundle of gorgeous recycled sari silk ribbon in earthy hues:

next up, the whole “collaged bits” collection from altered bits in digital format (i’ll upload it to my server so you can download it).  i created these sheets and images so you won’t find them anywhere else (if you do, tell me though ’cause they’re mine, ha!):

last but not least, i’ve pulled one of my anatomical collages to give to YOU.  it’s entitled “still” and is mounted on black mat board.  i am not as much of a collage person as i used to be as i prefer to create creepy little assemblages but i almost miss the feel and smell of paper when i leave it for too long.

you know the drill — just leave a comment and you could win one of these three items.  winners will be announced on february 17th (the day before my birthday).

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS: i had a winner last year who left no email address or blog address so i was bummed.

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.
