One World, One Heart (OWOH) 2011

January 30, 2011

I’ve seen this event a few years in a row now and finally in their final year I have the chance to participate! YIPEEEE!

This is the 5th year that Lisa Swifka over at A Whimsical Bohemian has organized bloggers of all kinds from all over the WORLD in one event! It’s a like a gigantic world bazaar where you can discover blogs and meet bloggers with similar interests! (Plus every blogger participating is giving something away!! It’s time to get those fingers a walking and get that lucky charm ready!)

The event goes from January 30, 2011 – February 17, 2011.

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Spike. A card maker primarily but slowly venturing into the world of altered art! I’m in Chilliwack, BC and have been paper crafting for about 5 years now. I’ve been asked to make tutorials for cards and techniques I’ve made on my blog (The Blog that Spike Built) and this is where I keep them together. I invite you to explore, bookmark or even subscribe.

Now for my blog give away!

I’m giving away 10 yards of 5/8″ (15mm) wide, ivory crinkle ribbon. It’s takes up water based dyes really easily and crinkles fabulously! Great for paper crafts, wrapping gifts, trim, etc. This is really fun to play with! (I do plan on making a couple of tutorials using this ribbon.)

The small print…
-It is open to all active bloggers world wide!
-to enter, please leave a comment with a way for me to contact you if you win (plus, I’d love to see and visit you too!) I’ll be accepting comments until 6pm (PST) on February 17th.
-the winner will be determined via random number generator and announced on February 17th here as well as emailed.
Good luck bloggers!

Thanks SO much for visiting and I hope to see you again!!


PS. If you don’t see your comment added right away, not to worry. I like to go through them all and take the time to visit you too! I approve them as I meet you! Hope you’re enjoying the hop/tour! This is loads of fun and cool to see the many creative peeps out there! You all rock! 😀

    Hi Spike, What a fab prize for a papercrafter like me. I have seen Tim demo how to die this with reinkers. I am definitely going to follow this blog. I love watching tutorials even if it is something I know how to do because most people have their own ways of doing things and you can learn so much from it.

    It’s funny how you get an impression at a glance and then you couldn’t be more wrong when you look deeper….When I first read your intro and saw the ribbon, I thought, “well I wouldn’t know what to do with this, this is not really something I would use”…then I went ahead and looked through your site…WOW! you are really good at what you do!! Just glancing through the steps of a couple procedures gave me so much insight into the use of some of these items I have thought could be something fun to work with…I wanted to follow, but not through I have bookmarked your site to keep up with learning something new…thx again for playing, june #75
