One World One Heart is a wonderful event started by Lisa Swifka of A Whimsical Bohemian as a way of bringing bloggers from all over the world together, to learn about one another, make new friends, and perhaps win some prizes, too!
This is the first time I participate, and I'm excited to be one of the hundreds of bloggers that "join hands" around the globe.
I am also excited to announce my giveaway prize, which is a 7 x 5 inches (18x13 cm) sheet of un-mounted rubber stamps with unique images from the woods! If you are not a stamper yet, here's your chance to get started! ;-)
This is a photo of my giveaway prize! (Somehow I must have managed to sneak into the background there ... )
The winner of these stamps will also receive a card I made using stamps from the same sheet PLUS a little secret gift ... (something yummy that is made in Norway, and I promise that it's NOT lutefisk! *g*)
All you have to do to get a chance to win my giveaway prize, is to leave a comment below! Yes, it's that simple :-)
Make sure I can follow a link to your blog. Otherwise I can't find you if you win! (If you don't have a blog, please leave your e-mail address instead).
The lucky winner will be announced here on my blog on February 17th. I will also email the winner to let her/him know.
Like I said, this event is a way of bringing bloggers from all over the world together, and we that participate have been asked to introduce ourselves:
I'm a 44 year old woman living in Fredrikstad, which is a small town on the coast in the south-east of Norway. I have a cat, or should I say she has me (sometimes I'm not sure who's the owner of whom...), and her name is Opel Susanna. Funny name for a cat, you say? Well, she IS a funny cat! She does not respond to her name, but when I say OOOOST (which is Norwegian for CHEEEEESE), she comes running as if her tail was on fire!
This is a picture I took of Opel Susanna last summer while she was sitting on the top of a pole. I think she was pretending to be a pelican, hoping to attract more birds.
When I'm not occupied taking silly pictures of The Cat, my occupation is counselor/therapist. In addition to assisting clients, I aim to assist crafters by making unique rubber stamps with motifs from our beloved Mother Nature!
I have been a rubber stamper for only 12 years, but a stamper for more than 40! You see, I started stamping when I was a young child, long before I knew anything about rubber stamps, and my potato prints developed into printing (or stamping) with other vegetables and fruit, then leaves, flowers, and pretty much anything that would hold ink or paint. (In case you wonder: I have not tried to print with Opel Susanna's paw. I don't think she would have let me for all the cheese in the world ...)
In the fall of 2010, this nature printing hobby of mine developed into stamp making and the beginning of Nature's Print Shop. With my deeply etched rubber stamps, anyone can make nature prints without all the trying and failing (and mess) regular nature printing often involves.
Thank you so much for visiting! To see the rubber stamps I brag about, you can go to my website: www.naturesprintshop.com
Now, go to leave your comment below to get a chance to win my giveaway!
After you have left your comment here on my blog, remember to visit the home of One World One Heart for lots of links to great blogs and giveaways!
I want to thank my friend Marina of Cherry Pie Art Stamps for telling me about this event.
Have fun! Good luck! :-)
