One World One Heart

Whew, swooped into this event just in the nick of time!


My daughter posted this give-away on her blog and told me about it so I thought as a newbie to the blogging community, what better way to get out there, meet new people and see what this online world is all about! I can't wait to see all the items other artisans are giving away. Looks like a great way to share the talent.

Here's my selection, sweet little lovebirds...the perfect Valentines Day gift for one lucky winner! It's cut from recycled wood and burned and painted on both sides (Trust me, the back is just as cute as the front). I hope the winner will enjoy it as much as I did creating it.

Giveaway will go until Valentines Day (February 14th) and the winner will be selected using a random number picker and announced on the 15th.  Anyone may participate, just make sure I can link back to you or leave an e-mail address. If I can't find you, your birds will have to fly to their next stop and you don't want that!

Welcome to my wood world.

So the new year brings with it my attempt at blogging. My daughter (computer literate) is teaching me (not computer literate) how to go about this. I know I'll be slow out the gate. So my idea with this blog is to have a showcase for whatever craft idea comes up. My latest creations are made from recycling wood from various sources. My first recycled project was the making of a character I named my "Garden People". The "About Me" section shows a picture of three girls I made for a Grandmother to give her grand-daughters. The word is she loves them. I have made several of these pieces now and I challenge myself to give each a recongnizable feature like style of hair and color to try and personalize it. The tools needed to create these are pretty simple. Great fun and I will continue with these as the faces make you smile. Ahhhhh...but now I have a scroll saw which provides greater detail so I've shifted to animals. Here are some examples. Sure is fun and I think they look good. Let me know if you agree (or not). All comments welcome. Thanks and try to stay dry!!!!!!!
