One World One Heart.... the saga continues....

Congratulating Random Winners :) and well... 
I really am sorry about the losers... Yikes :(
Nobody said this would be easy, for a newbie blogger I'm feeling a little like I've crammed a years blogging into 17 days, and I haven't even put up a post in that time, comments, yes... freaking virtual world travel yes... not even knocking on doors just barging on in without so much as a wipe of my Doc Martins on the Welcome Mat, no time... you know why?? It's totally your fault, hell I had NO IDEA there were so many talented, creative, amusing, soulful, intelligent,  FREAKING FANTASTIC bloggers out there!!! I can't skim, what the hell was I thinking about, I wanted to meet people & by jove (LOL that's so old fashioned... by jove) I did!!


Something unexpected happened... I made friends... ahh yes you say, of course, DUH... but this, for someone who works in a home office and always seems perched between a computer, art desk, chaos, a load of dirty dishes & a nervous breakdown (actually that's only every second day LOL) this has given me more delight than I thought possible. Etsy opened a world to me & through that I have made friends, one inparticular has supported and encouraged me and starting this blog I believe was her idea ;) the fact I had almost 300 people visit & take time to leave a comment & 68 more followers than when I started OWOH makes me very humble, & thankful.... so a big thanks you all :) Now we have to get to know each other so you'll be seeing my Doc Martins at your door again, promise I'll wipe my feet next time LOL!

Now the Winners (man was that too serious, you'll think I'm a sap now)...
I left this in the hands of a Randomizer (because I couldn't find a Karmaizer on line to pick it!!)

Wow! That's so cool. I love trading/getting trading cards from artists. The ability to create in such a small space is often mindblowing. I could use some cheering up today, I have a terrible flu & was forced to work 12 hours on Friday! Yucky. But, I am so over that, I won your art! I am so thankful for the chance to meet a world-ful of amazing folks. Thanks so much. I'll email you the whats-it! Tina

Hey Shelle,

Bring your Doc's to my blog-door anytime! LOL!!!
They can keep mine company!
It was completely overwhelming for me too, as this was the first time I did OWOH, and I have been trying to do a tutorial, take and on-line class, deal with the entries and actually WORK in the studio....WOW!!!
I'm glad I was not the only one with my mouth hung open! ;-D
Congrats to your winners!!!

XXOO~~♥

Stacy, 3 words for you... Ravishing Rick Rude!! ;) best tights!!

Doone said...

ha there IS ONLY the directors cut

I want to paint rachel....

her portrait - not her..

painting her would be a bit pervee

ooh ohh if you could get those photos of 'her' and her family from the film and do a journal page bladerunner style - Oh Yeah...

I am sad enough to have counted the number of coca cola adverts in that film....

Hello! Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog (dormouse.wibsite.com) I hope you'll visit me again for a View from the Teapot.

Wasn't OWOH fabulous?! I had a great time visiting and bookmarking so many different blogs. Sorry I didn't win your giveaway...never mind! Sorry you didn't win my giveaway...never mind! LOL

Yay! Congratulations winners!!

Sunshineshelle said...

Thanks to all of you coming on back to leave comments guys :)
Doone, it's sad but VERY understandable being so fascinated... this comes from a person who did a painting of Deckard for her mother when it was first released ;) Actually a sci-fi/futuristic theme would be so cool, with or without Coke signage LOL!
Now remember I'll be visiting you all, make sure there's a mug with my name on it ;)
