One World, One Heart Givaway 2010

I don't know what rock I've been hiding under, but somehow I managed to be completely unaware of this wonderful blog party that is happening over at Lisa's blog, A Whimsical Bohemian. This is her 4th year bringing bloggers from all over the world together. She has graciously allowed me to join the party a little late, and I am thrilled to be a part of it. What a fabulous opportunity to meet hundreds of new bloggers and share a little bit of my art with one new blogging friend. (or maybe an old one!) I am always looking for new blogs to visit and there will be HUNDREDS to visit over the next few weeks. I would also like to welcome anyone who is new to My Desert Cottage. I hope you find yourself comfortable to be here, and are able to find a little inspiration, as I am sure I will while visiting all these new (to me) blogs. One of the things that I love so much about blogging is how it brings people from all over the world together. We put aside our religious and political differences and just become one world full of loving and creative people. I always get so excited when I receive an email from someone on the other side of the world. It points out that we really aren't that different from each other. I am a changed person because of blogging and very grateful for it.

My contribution to the giveaway is this little shadowbox. It's approx. 5.5" x 6" As you probably know by now, all you have to do is leave a comment with a way for me to get a hold of you, and you will be entered in the drawing. The last day to leave a comment will be Feb. 14th .My art is made from the heart and I hope one of you will enjoy owning it as much as I enjoyed making it. Now LET"S PARTY!!!!!
