One World One Heart 2011

(Welcome! I am participating in the One World One Heart event. The details for the One World One Heart event are below the following story written for this event.)


We vowed it would never happen! Swore it would never happen! Even pinky promised and sealed it with a kiss. We were destined for great things. We knew this. We knew we’d be going together and the time was drawing near. We even kept track of the time.

We even knew the signs to watch for:

Although procrastinators we were ready. We were! We just had one teeny tiny issue; the issue of not wanting to be first in line with all those eyes watching us as we boarded. We awoke one day, a day which promised to be long, sunny and warm. Wanting to enjoy the day that was ahead, and wanting to make the most out of one more day left in the place we would no longer call home, we headed to the edge of the land we walked upon to see the waves crash on the beach and to stare off into the horizon over the waters that would soon carry us to our new destination. The one that promised us our destiny of great things together. As we inched our way along the great outdoors and neared the edge of our land we giggled and skipped, sang and danced…

The rain came; the water rose;

and then we were there!

We looked up and out only to find that we had been left behind! All that planning and preparedness only to find ourselves.

We're sorry we forgot you!


Welcome to my blog. I started my blog about two years back and it has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of wonderful people from all over the world. I've made so many wonderful and long lasting friendships through blogging, and it's given me the opportunity to follow the art world and artists I love so much. I am quite a free-spirited individual with a love for so many things. Staying still and staying put are not things which come easily to me. Like that of a Gypsy restlessness prevails. Although my blog has remained quiet for the better part of it's life, things are slowing down for me and I forsee that this year will bring me more time to devote to it's coming back to life. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this wonderful event.

I appreciate your joining me in the fifth and final year of the One World One Heart event hosted by the wonderful, talented and amazing Lisa of A Whimsical Bohemian. I am thrilled to be participating in this years One World One Heart event which includes a spectacular array of blogs and bloggers.

Hi Jody!

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by my blog and sharing your kind words! This is my first OWOH event, and I'd hoped to make new friends...but I never imagined I'd hear such nice compliments on my work! [big happy grin] And too - you're an art charmer?!?!??? How very cool is that? If you're not already a member, please consider yourself invited to join our Art Charms Yahoo Group - we're doing swaps and challenges, and having a great time! Here's the link:
