OWOH 2011 world wide blog event

I will be having a friend draw the winners from my OWOH blog hop. My friend doesn't have a computer and so she will pick random numbers from the number of comments that were left. I will post the winners and also send emails later tonight or tomorrow morning. Good Luck! This was such a fun event.


  Click HERE for all the information..............this page will also hold the participant list which will be updated thru February 12th.    This event is hosted by Lisa Swifka's (the creator and organizers) blog
One World One Heart is a worldwide event. The FIFTH and final One World One Heart began SUNDAY NIGHT January 30TH (MIDNIGHT THE END OF THE 30TH) and runs until February 17, 2011.

This event gives all those who have had an existing active blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections and  make new friends from around the world. This blog event allows you to visit  and see the wonderful creations by other crafters. And, as an added bonus each blog visited offers up a chance to win wonderful door prizes just by leaving a comment. I am a little late in starting, but I wanted to join in on the fun. I am # 634.

Hello and welcome to my blog. If this is a first time visit or if you have stopped by before, I hope that you enjoy my little corner of the blogging world.  Feel free to become a follower and come back to visit when the  OWOH event is over.
My name is Elaine, and I live in Middleboro, Massachusetts, USA where everything is covered in snow. I'm a  nurse, but I'm not working right now. I have been married to my hubby, Tom for 43 years. We have 2 grown sons, and 4 grandchildren. We grow cranberries and sell our berries to Ocean Spray ( you can see photos of our harvest here on my blog in the archives (9/2010). Also there are more cranberry harvest photo and many more albums of  my artwork in my picture trail albums
I have enjoyed crafting for many, many years. I really like trying new things and don't have enough time in a day to accomplish all that I want to get done. So many ideas with so little time.

I am a first time participant, and sadly this is the 5th and final OWOH blogging event.  To win one of my giveaways please take a look around my blog, leave a comment with an email address, and if you are participating please leave your blog address or number so I can visit your blog too. The winners will be posted here and by email on February 17. 2011.

If I can't contact the winner of a prize I will draw another name after 48 hours, due to the fact that the giveaways all have to be mailed out within 3 days.  Thanks for stopping by to visit, and for leaving a lovely comment. I'd love to have you visit again when this event is over and you have more time to look thru my blog. I love having giveaways on my blog and have them often.

I am offering 7 giveaways--photo's below.
1.a beaded wild hair woman stamped domino pin
2.Package of Tim Holtz Foliage metal embellishments 
3.a pair of pierced earrings...lavender frosted glass beads with swarovski crystals.
4.hanging decorated jeans pocket. The beads can be removed easily if you don't like the added bling.
5.toilet paper tube tag journal. The pages and tags are blank waiting for you to add journaling or photos.
6.fabric piece I found tucked away in a drawer. When I first started the piece it started off life as an atc, but then I added it to background fabric that I pinked around the edges. I never ended up using it on a project. Maybe one of you can on a little hanging quiltie or fabric piece or add it to a journal decide.
7.mermaid tag that has a beautiful shimmery background.

Hi Elaine, I'm Susan and I live in the Pine Barrens of southern NJ, also a cranberry capital. there is an Ocean spray plant in Chatsworth, a few rural towns over. There is a farmer nearby to us that grows for OS also. I never had a "lecture" like yours before, I feel like I learned a lot. I didn't know about dry harvesting, only you do learn something new everyday! Your pictures were wonderful :) I really enjoyed looking through them and seeing you and your family in action. I also checked out your ModPodged tray, very nice indeed!! I am very interested in the Tim Holtz package (I do not have any of his stuff other than distress inks) and those beautiful earrings!! Please include me in your drawing and come visit me #209.
thanks, and have fun,
(Pieces of Fate)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Wow, your cranberry harvest is facinating! I love fruits and we always have dried cranberries we buy in bulk from Costco. We live in a small orange grove, and all we have to do is go out and pick them when we want to eat them. I never knew the process of cranberry picking - really neat!

The photo at the top of your blog is beautiful!! Thanks for stopping by and entering my OWOH giveaway. I can't believe you could've had a shot of the space shuttle taking off like that! Ahh well...that's how it goes sometimes! I love the focus fabric piece.

Wow, everything covered in snow, it looks magical, it's so HOT here at the moment I feel like standing in front of the open fridge!! So nice to meet you (I'm Shelle by the way)! Seeing I walked through your open Blogger doorway, I'd like to ask you if you have time to drop in at mine too (I don't think I've seen you yet and you have a cool blog - NOT TO MENTION THE PRIZES)...After OWOH if you're in the bloggersphere my blog door's always open :) Now let's keep enjoying this hurly burly wonderful One World One Heart EXTRAVAGANZA :) before it times out!!!
