Another favorite project is the 10 Reasons Why You're A Great Daddy book I made with my daughter. It incorporates her handwriting. Making custom and personalized home decor is another thing I do frequently. I'm always interested in learning new techniques, and am teaching myself to sew and how to expand my skills through digital and hybrid scrapbooking. I invite you to look around, the pull down menu under my blog header will help you navigate my blog by categories.
For my readers who are unfamiliar with One World One Heart, here is the description from the organizer's site My Life as a Whimsical Bohemian:
One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy.
As a thank you for coming by my little spot in the blogisphere, I'd like to offer an altered frame to one lucky winner. It will be the frame shown above, minus the picture of my little cutie pie☺. I painted it a pretty sage green and decoupaged fruit patterned paper onto it.
It's decorated with several embellishments like fabric and paper flowers with brad centers. There's a cute charm that says "Growing Up" attached so it looks like it's hanging from the bow. Plus an epoxy button and chipboard heart all in this corner.
The corner of the pink heart has been intentionally left blank so that a monogram or year can be added to personalize it more. I will add the letter for the winner before mailing it out, if he or she indicates what they'd like it to say.Chipboard letters spell out "Sweet". The second half of the title was stamped in green and then embossed so it has a raised and shiny finish. Put together the frame's title is "Sweet Memories".
In the opposite corner I added two more chipboard accents, a decorative bottle cap, and more ribbon. It is a very cute and cheerful frame and I hope the winner will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. Altering unfinished frames is one of my favorite projects.
To win the Sweet Memories frame, please leave a comment on this post.
I would love to know one of your favorite memories or perhaps you favorite fruit and way to eat it. You can also just say, "Hi," or tell me something about yourself in your comment too.

I love meeting all the talented artists from around the world through this event and have been lucky enough to win handmade treasures from participants twice in the past.
