One World One Heart 2011

Welcome all new comers and of course old comers :-). This is the 5Th and final one world one heart event, this is my first time in this event and I am pleased to be here. Click on banner to link to where this all started.
Hi, my name is Annie and I am an artist who lives in Taos New Mexico. I am a painter who works in mixed media and a ceramic artist who works in porcelain. Making art is the love of my life. I am single and I have 2 cats, Spike and Max and 1 dog, Zeus who are the other loves of my life. Art, nature, animals, books, movies, friends, family, and spirit, these are the most exciting and important things to me. Look around and get to know me and I will be doing the same as time permits to get to know some of you. I will be giving away this porcelain pendant (1 1/2"x 2" on an 12" red suede cord) that I made as a door prize, to win just leave a comment on this post (only comments on this post count) and I will be drawing all the names from a hat on February the 17Th. This contest is open to all bloggers worldwide. Please be sure there is a way to link back to your blog and a way to contact you if you win, I will be sending the winner an email on February 17Th and I will be posting about it that day.

I look forward to meeting some of you and perhaps forging new and lasting friendships.
Happy Monday! XOXO
The drawing is closed.
The doorprize has a winner, go to my latest post to read all about it! XOXO

nice write up, annie! i don't need to win because i already have your pendants for my own, but i wish you and everyone who visits you a barrel of fun!

i'm still thinking: can i be a good friend to new friends? .....

have a great day!

Lynn Cohen said...

Lovely to learn a little more about you! I'd give your heart as a gift as I too own a few already myself! They make wonderful Valentine Day gifts!!!

Annie said...

Kj, everyone goes in the hat, no exceptions :-), can you have too many hearts?
I think that you can become good friends with new friends, but of course once in a while you can be good friends from the start, I know that happened to me a few times in my life.
Lynn, I am surprised you are not in on this, you have some time to enter...Love. xoxo
