2011 One World One Heart

Hello everyone my name is Antonella, and I love to do quilling or paper filigree.  Quilling is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to make, well, just about anything.  If you are interested, take a peak as I have lots of free patterns and quilling for you.  I started my blog in June of 2006, which will make this my 5th year blogging (if you remember, stop back in June and I'll have to do a giveaway to celebrate).

UPDATE:  This event is closed.

I am so happy to welcome you to my blog.  I know that this is one stop along your journey visiting and meeting lots of new and hopefully old  friends. I would love it if you stopped to have a look around before you put your wings back on in your journey around the world.

This year we are "flying on the wings of OWOH",    I am #153. This is the fifth and final One World One Heart Giveaway, so it is with a little sadness that we kick off the event.  This year it begins Sunday, January 30th and ends Thursday, February 17th.  On February 17th the winner will be announced.

What is One World One Heart? The following is from our hostess on this journey, Lisa:
It is a worldwide event for bloggers to give us a chance to make connections we may not have otherwise met.  Can you believe it? Last year there were over 1,000 participants!!! 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.  Click here for the list of participants.
To enter my giveaway, post a comment on this post until February 17th

On your comment make sure you leave me a way to contact you, you must have an active blog to be entered for a chance to win. Please leave a link to your blog and your personal OWOH number so that I can visit your giveaway.

On February 17th I will announce the winner on my blog and I will ask the winner to contact me with their postal mailing address so you can receive your gift.  The winner will be selected using a random number generator (haven't decided which one yet).  The winner can be from any country, it is pure luck of the draw.  I have had international winners in the past and it has worked out well.

Are you ready? I know I can't wait! My giveaway this year will be a quilled Butterfly.  The style of the butterfly will be similar to these pieces I have done that are sprinkled throughout my post, the Blue Snowman, Red/White/Blue Heart, and Birthday Cake.  I will be posting pictures of the butterfly as it progresses....

I have had so much fun over the years participating in this event, my first event was in 2008!  I am sad that this will be the last year, but I completely understand.  It is a lot of work to coordinate this event each year.  As a participant I struggle with trying to find time to visit everyone can you imagine managing the links and leaving messages as Lisa our hostess must?!?

Ok, are you ready? I look forward to your wonderful comments. Remember to write a comment here on THIS post for a chance to win.  Each year I have added prizes before the end of the event, so there will probably be some extra chances to win.... I will update this post accordingly when that happens. :-)

Enjoy!

Antonella :-)

What's up Duck? said...

I love paper filigree/quilling!
Years ago I remember looking in a book and seeing examples of metal filigree and wished I could do that. then realized I could do it with paper. I created a few pieces then years later realized that it was something many people did and went back many years.

Your work is beautiful!

Bonjour, Antonella, et merci beaucoup! I actually dropped in to thank you for visiting my blog. I didn't realize you were also participating in OWOH. I had never heard of quilling before -- I've seen it, but didn't know the name. Thanks for the education! Are you familiar with the paper art form created by cutting slices into a flat piece of paper? I have postcards like that and would love to know what that is called.
I'd consider myself very lucky if I won your quilled butterfly:) frenchkissed424@yahoo.com
