One World One Heart 2011

Yes it's that time of year again!  The magical One World One Heart Giveaway!
 The Giveaway runs Jan. 31 - Feb 17, 2011.
Last year I joined for the very first time and it was such a joy to meet new friends and greet familiar faces.  Lisa has said this is the last year.  The fifth and final... so grab your hat and come along for a marvelous ride!

And what is One World One Heart you ask?  Well Lisa says it best:

"One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way.  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.  It's really that easy."

And if you are a first time visitor to my blog you might be asking...and who are you?
Welcome, welcome!  My name is Gail and I am a mixed media and digital artist who quite frequently loves to marry the two art forms.  I've been an artist for many, many years and love to inspire and be inspired by others.  So make youself at home and wander around the Cottage all you like, it's been my home for about 4 years.  My other home is a circa 1920's farmhouse on an acre of land in the mountains of Tennessee.  My hubby of 20+ years, known here on the blog as Mr. Shabby, and I, are still working on bringing an old house into the 21st century. Our children consist of one canine and two felines.  Both the felines showed up on our  properties at different times, both young, starving and in need of a rescue.  I'm blessed to be able to run my online businesses from my home with my art studio only steps away from my office (aka Command Central).  I don't get to the studio as often as I want, but I do get there as often as I can. 

Aside from getting to meet and greet friends old and new, part of the fun is the Giveaway!  So I know you want to know what I have for two lucky winners.  Yes, you heard correctly... I said two!
Well I have two mixed media wall hangings I created.

The first hanging is titled, There is Life.  I created this wall hanging to meet a challenge using fabric I already had, I could not buy or use anything I didn't already have.  Such a fun challenge!  Part of what I used was old denim, upholstery fabric I've had forever and vintage laces.

This wall hanging is called The Power of a Girl. 
This piece had no preconceived idea, it simply happened.

Both pieces have hangers on the back and are excitedly waiting for their new home. 
 Maybe it will be yours!

It's real easy to make sure you win a chance at one of these.  Simply leave a comment on this post.  You must have a blog and only comments on this post will be counted.  Two winners will be randomly selected with a random number generator Feb. 18. 2011 
 Last year we had over 1000 blogs participating from all over the world. 
Think about that for a moment.

Be sure to click on the link or picture at the top of this post to visit the OWOH page and visit all the other blogs who have joined the party!
 And thanks for stopping by my Shabby Cottage Studio!

From one Southern girl to another, Wow! Love your blog, love your giveaways, love everything! I'm restoring a circa 1860's house, and we end up doing a lot in the shabby cottage style. I think I can find inspiration right here on your blog for colors and patterns, etc. I've enjoyed visiting with you and have become your latest follower so that I may come back again soon! Hope you'll pop over to my blog as well for a visit with me.
