Back with new ideas and a giveaway for OWOH

Hi there, I know it´s been a very long time since my last post, but health issues kept me from being creative. Now it is time to get back into artworld and blogworld and as I found out about this wonderful project 2 days ago I thought it would be perfect for reactivating my blog.

I would like to offer a little giveaway from my beading stash. It is a bracelet in 2 bluetones, with a rainbow reflection which I am not able to get in the photo. So please try to picture it a bit more colorful than it looks on the photo.
To be added to the drawing you just have to comment on THIS post and on February 12 I will pick the winner by random. Everybody is free to join, no matter if you are a blogger or not. Make sure to leave an email address or URL for your blog or website so I can contact you in case you win the bracelet.

And in case you would like to join the fun and offer a giveaway on your blog please go to the One World - One Heart blog

Good luck and have fun visiting all the wonderful and interesting blogs of participants.


It´s February 12 already, so I will close comments now and announce the winner later today.
Thanks to all who commented and also thanks to all who offered give aways. It´s been so much fun to find so many interesting blogs.
