One more time about the One World One Heart Giveaway!

HIATUS - a break or interruption in the continuity of a work, series, action, etc.

I hope you all aren't too tired of hearing about the wonderful One World One Heart blog event. I know I have blogged about it before but the surprises just kept coming! I was the fortunate winner of many prizes and I've been meaning to send out my formal bloggy thank you and my Hiatus is giving me a terrific opportunity to do so!

Up until my participation in that event I operated in a kind of bubble. I played my everyday bliss game, wrote about it but really never thought about the rest of the blogging world. In my research about my different virtues I would happen upon blogs that had hundreds of followers and I could never figure out how that happened.  OWOH showed me that you have to get out and tell people you are out there, so I went ahead and jumped in!  And I am so glad I did! Today I reached 150 followers... how amazing is that?!! And I owe it all to the world that was opened up to me because of participating in that wonderful event.

Today I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all the folks I won prizes from and invite you to hop on over to their blogs if you are seeking some creative inspiration. A couple of weeks ago I shared two of my prizes in a gratitude week post and mentioned that I would be back to share the other prizes. Go to that post if you want a peek at the the super darling Angel Cat ornament by Suzanne Urban Designs or the fun ornament pin cushion made by Deborah over at Vintage Soul

Here is the rest of my booty!

If you like Paper Crafts you MUST visit her blog!

This darling Steampunk Heart by Linda of Timeless Treasures of the East
is made from purple and silver polymer clay. 
It is embelished with a small heart shaped lock and key.

So thank you once again to the master of ceremonies Lisa Swifka aka The Whimsical Bohemian for her enlightening and fun game. Need some creative blog hopping then please visit the gals above and/or pop over to this post to see the complete list of 1000+ blogs who participated!

Don't forget that every comment on the blog this week nets you an additional entry in my BIG EVERYDAY BLISS GIVEAWAY. Do make sure you are following this blog if you want your ETSY shop to be included! Good Luck everyone!

P.S. The hiatus is going well but one week is hardly enough for my lofty visions of blog beauty... ah well some new fun will be in store none the less!

    You really won some lovely prizes in the OWOH event! :) I am happy to hear so many has discovered your blog and started following you, too! OWOH is such a great annual event!!

    Best wishes, Hege :)

  2. Wow, what lovely treasures you received. I never tire about hearing One World One Heart. It was the most amazing experience for me! I've met people that I never would have found otherwise - people who have since become good friends. And I truly think that is what the event was all about. Lisa is a wonderful person...I certainly hope she continues it next year. And I will be more prepared for all the visitors (I couldn't believe how many folks came to chat with me - and I, in turn, paid a return visit to each and every one). Enjoy your lovely gifts! Theresa

  3. You received some beautiful gifts! That steampunk heart is SO amazing! I love that! I have to tell you, I've been contemplating writing to Lisa to let her know how much impact this year's event has had on me. I have met so many people that have so quickly become friends and my art has taken off in directions that were a direct result of the inspiration I found through the OWOH blog journey! Just and I may have never found eachother! Nope...don't imagine it...'cause I certainly can't!

  4. Wow ~ Wish I had known about this OWOH ~ next time!! Thanks for sharing some beautiful items with us! Happy Spring!
