One World One Heart 2011

Hi I have today joined One World One Heart (OWOH) event. I am new to blogging and think this is a fantastic way of meeting lots of wonderful people. If you're not yet familiar with OWOH, click on the logo above and it will take you to a whimsical bohemian blogspot where it all begins.

My name is Anne Cahill and I live in the coastal city of Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia. I commenced painting with acrylic paints in 2000 and fell in love with the medium. Recently I have begun journaling and have tackled mixed media. I enjoy adding extra elements to my painting designs. In my coming posts I look forward to sharing my creative journey with you all.

My door prize for those active bloggers who wish to participate is my original Sweet Dreams Bear. She measures from the tip of the star to the bottom of her foot while hanging 25cm in length. She is made from 3mm MDF and has feather wings.

The rules are simple:

A. It's open to all active bloggers worldwide.
B. Please leave a comment, making sure there is a way to contact you should you win
C. The lucky winner will be announced 17th February
