One World One Heart Giveaway (CLOSED)

Hello everyone, welcome to my post for One World One Heart, a fun event where bloggers around the world post giveaways and share a little bit about themselves.  You can see all the participants here or click here to find out how to join in if you blog.

If you happen to be visiting from Asia, Happy New Year!
Now a little bit about me:  

I'm a Christian.  I start with this because knowing Jesus is more important than anything else that has happened in my life.  I won't go into my whole story here, but if you'ld like to know about it you can read more here

I'm a Mom.  I have three little boys, who inspire me in many ways, and make my life both more challenging, and more full.

I'm an Artist.  And, as you can tell, that's what this blog is mainly about.

I'm a "Texifornian".    Yes, I made up that word...though I'm not the only one who ever thought of it.  I am originally from California, USA, but live in Texas now.  If you'ld like a postcard from Texas, I'm giving that away for OWOH on my other blog, Texifornia.  Oh, and one more interesting thing I thought I'd add...when I was a kid I lived on a boat!  Yep, until I was 10, then we moved to the California mountains.  If you happen to have seen a 50 foot yellow tug boat named SNAFU (it used to be a Navy boat...my parents didn't name it that) chugging around let me know.  I'd love to find out what happened to it.  :-)




WHAT I'M GIVING AWAY

First, if you like my heart up at the top, I have  free coloring pages
with the same design that everyone is welcome to print.

And, I will also be giving away the following to one person:

One of Each of the Following Bookmarks

Heart Bookmarks profilecardLady Red Bookmarks profilecard



Plus Two of Each of the Following Stickers
In Beauty sticker
Scribbleprint Shamrock sticker
Can your inner child come out and play? sticker



TO WIN
To win, leave a comment and a way to contact you (your e-mail, or your blog link is fine so long as you allow comments).   If you really want to make my day, share your favorite quote or poem (but you don't have to).  Giveaway ends Feb 17 at around 9:00 pm CST and is open worldwide!  Must be at least 18 to enter.  Winner has one month to claim their prize after the giveaway ends.

  34. Found my way here from the post you left on my blog. How wonderful that you spent part of your childhood living on a boat! You must have many stories to tell. Beautiful work! Love the bookmarks best, maybe it's the reader in me. You asked what I teach. I've taught kindergarten all the way through 8th grade. Middle school is my current love and I am back to school to get my credential in special education. I'm drawn to working with that population for the rest of my teaching career.
