I am slipping in just under the wire to participate in this, the LAST year (sniff!), of the blogging community's open house - One World One Heart 2011. Participants and guests go from blog to blog meeting each other and entering in all the lovely giveaways offered by creative bloggers around the world. (I'll put the link to all the participants at the end of this post for you.)
Although my blog has been around for many years, 2010 found my posts far and few between. Not sure why. It was an unplanned hiatus. Might have something to do with launching our last child from the nest. It was a busy year. If you haven't visited here before, a wee bit of info about me - I'm a creative soul with too many ideas and not enough focus. I am undoubtedly part corvid, always distracted by the flash of something new and shiny to pull me off in another direction. But I'm hoping this coming year will be one of creative focus and growth for me, and that will mean an unprecedented amount of artistic endeavors to post about in 2011! I'm making a public declaration, right here and now, to help me follow through and be a creative Goddess.
At the moment, life is crazy and busy. My creative plans of the coming week are to finish some much needed room painting. I've got myself a willing minion...er, I mean friend, to help me. Wish me luck!
And my giveaway? I'm giving away some Butt Roses!
Right now voices all over the globe are saying "Butt Roses! Yay! I've always wanted some Butt Roses!!! I LOVE Butt Roses!"
Well, in my imagination you're all saying that. What you're really saying (if I didn't frightened you and you've already clicked away to the blog of a less crazy person) is "What in blue blazes are Butt Roses!?"
Here I am in one of my many alternate personas as a Rose Fae, proudly wearing my Butt Roses on a green bustle. Hehehe. See! You DO want some Butt Roses, don't you!
Here's a close up of some of them. They're very shabby chic and organic.
And here's a photo of a rose in the hand to show you the size of a medium one.
I'm offering three roses to one lucky winner - one each of small, medium and large. My roses are in cream, taupe, and pink, but I can make your roses in a color or colors of your choosing. And no, you don't have to wear them on your butt. You can stitch them onto a headband or hair pin. Or a favorite cardigan or jacket? A purse? You could even just display them nestled into a bowl or scattered amongst your perfumes and combs.
Just leave a comment on this post with a link back to your blog or an email address so I can contact you if you win. Deadline for leaving a comment is midnight PST on February 17th.
As promised, here's a link back to the participant list for One World One Heart 2011. Please enjoy cyberflying about, meeting the many wonderful and creative bloggers around this blue globe. I hope to find time to visit old friends and meet new ones in between spilling paint on my kitchen floor and running to the store for more paint rollers.
And when you're tuckered out from your travels, I'm hoping you will come back for another visit. I'll put on the tea kettle. You can pull out a chair, knock a cat off the seat, and have a cuppa with me. Do you take sugar? Milk? No, not that one, that's an old paint can!!!! Well, I'll have it all cleaned up by the time you get back again, right?
