Silver Crow Project

One World One Heart 2011

Giveaway closed - winners drawn and contacted :)

Hello and welcome to my humble blog both new visitors and much loved oldies alike.

This is my first time participating in OWOH and I'm sad to see it will be the last one too.

For those of you that maybe don't know what One World One Heart is this is how Lisa the organiser of this fab event describes it...

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.

So! My name is Carmen, I'm 34 at the end of this month and I'm gradually learning to call myself an artiste. On my little blog you'll find waffling, lots of waffling, I can't do short posts... well - I can but they don't look right so I generally just waffle and hope I haven't bored people to tears. Wafflings usually are about things I've made, courses I'm taking, books I'm reading and then feel the need to foist my opinion on you about... and the odd slobbery drool soaked post on Alice Cooper. No apologies for those.

Om nom nom nom!

*ahem* Where were we? Oh yes, I love to play at altering things, I dabble in jewellery making and papercraft... anything really, my gaze is always being caught by another fabulous branch of the creative tree. I've come by the name 'The Duck Lady' can't think why... ...but I'm finding my real love is drawing and painting. Though I still count myself as on a learning curve - but then aren't we all right up until we pop our clogs? I believe so. I have been told my style is grungy and I'm happy with that - I can't really deny it. I love to incorporate things like zombies, Alice... oh and Bette Davis *love her* into my creations. Occasionally Carmen Miranda pops up too - well, she is my namesake after all .

The dream is to one day make a living out of creating stuff from the rambling things in my head... Just spend all day, every day doing that... Actually the biggest thrill would just be someone genuinely wanting something that I had made - to be willing to fork over pennies that they had worked and slaved for to buy something that I had made. How amazing would that be? Pretty cool. That's the dream.

So my little gift to one of you, as a thank you for stopping by and letting me talk about myself... well.. the prize was going to be a grungy graffiti style canvas but I have been a bit under the weather this month and haven't managed much creating at all. SO I've come up with a cunning plan. The official gift is this book from my bookshelf - don't worry - it's still brand new. (Who else is guilty of that? So many gorgeous inspiring books, so little time!...) I don't know about you but I'm addicted to books. Especially art & craft books and books about spooky things. Well, you might not all appreciate a book about zombies or vampires or ghosties and ghoulies but most of you would probably like a new arty crafty book to play with, am I right? So pop your name below to be in with a chance of winning this brand new beauty - Warm Fuzzies by Betz White. However... I am also holding an unofficial giveaway which will be a graffiti grungy style canvas - roughly A4ish in size maybe a wee bit bigger which I will get cracking on making as soon as I feel better. It will be mixed media and contain lots of paint methinks. It will be something to do with inspiration and getting your mojo on - that sort of thing. If you would like to be in with the chance of winning that - also let me know in the comments.

So to recap (told you there was waffling) if you would like to enter just the official book giveaway or if you would like your name put in for the unofficial canvas or both... let me know in the comments. My only stipulation is that you must be a blogger to enter. It's a really easy stipulation. This is after all an event for bloggers. But that's the only condition. I will post internationally.

The giveaway will end 5pm UK time on February 17th and winners will be announced and contacted shortly after so please make sure I am able to make contact through your comment whether it be that your name links back to your blog or that you leave an email address/twitter id. If I can't make contact I will redraw a winner. Just so you know. It would also be nice just so I can return the visit.

So thank you again for stopping by and I hope to come and meet lots of you over the next few days :)

  4. Well, I can't sew to save my life, so the book would be no good for me - but I would LOVE to have something grungey of yours! I think you've been in that would be stu-stu-studio too much and inhaled too much dust! Hope you feel better soon.

  97. Carmen, you are a "hoot!" Love your waffling...I call it "rants!" LOL Thank you for coming over to my little part of the world (not very happy with it right now...stupid utility companies are gouging us because of the freezing weather we experienced this past week, causing rolling blackouts, no heat and now, water rationing...WTF!!...going to move into a cave and raise goats!!)Anyway, sign me up for both prizes, but that "unofficial" prize has really sparked my curiosity!!

    I'm having so much fun doing my AC scrapbook, it's like being 14 again....did your 10 year old enjoy the concert? I have a one of those, she's quite keen to come to the next concert but I don't know........waffle waffle waffle

  100. Hello there, almost 34 Carmen!!! Oh, it's so much fun to visit all different blogs and get to 'know' people from all over the world! So glad you played along with OWOH too - and make me discover your blog! I loved to read your ramblings and I would be thrilled to win a canvas from you!!! (the book seems to be about fabric/thread-crafting - what's the word - and I'm more into paper, paint and art journals) but I would be delighted if I won a original 'Carmen'!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my name gets pulled out of your magic hat! Love from the Netherlands, Marit (OWOH#501)

  122. HI! Thanks, for stopping by my blog and I'd love to enter the draw for your wonderful prizes..nom..nom...nom! LOL!
    Godd luck!

  123. thanks for visiting my blog - very interesting work

  124. Warm Fuzzies or Canvas... cool stuff! Enter moi!
    Caryl OWOH #270

  125. Just flying in to visit you and thank you for visiting me and for you great comment. I'd love to be entered for the canvass, and if the book is sewing or felting to be entered for that as well...but not if it is knitting because whilst I can knit, it doesn't light the spark for me...although I love looking at what other people knit, which is just as well as I have a lot of knitter friends. If I won a knitting book it would find a welcome home with a friend. :D

    I have to say I love your blog. Not only does the background of old books make me want to know what they all are as I adore old books, but the Calvin and Hobbes cartoon is one of my faves and there is so much on your blog that makes me go 'yes!'.

  126. Hey Carmen! I'm here, I'm here! Finally! So glad to "meet" you! I too love your blog and you sound a lot like me, waffling on... hahah Only I call it keeping my yapper going. I like Alice Cooper, I think his radio show is great. I like some of his music but probably not quite the fan you are. Did you know he is a pretty good golfer?

    Thank you for visiting my blog and joining me! I'm now joining you too! I love your creations. I have the same dream you've got. I think there are a lot of us. ;) keep going, that's what we can do!

    I love all the spooky stuff you're talking about and can't get enough of paranormal shows and books when I have the time, which isn't often since I think my butt is permanently adhered to my computer chair. which I need a new one cause I've sat in this one for so long! As you can tell, I'm a bit long winded too.

    Happy Creating!

  127. Hi Carmen! Love your blog! Not a big Alice Cooper fan but I sooo get the spooky stuff (HUGE zombie fan) and the pic in your sidebar of Bill from True Blood made me laugh (so true...Edward who? tee hee) Anyway, it is good to meet you via OWOH! I am a certified book hound so I would love to try and stuff another sweet tome onto my shelves! If you get a chance, please stop by my blog, Lost Coast Post (#455 on the list) Cheers, Michelle

  128. I would love to be entered in your wonderful drawing, if you get a chance please stop by my blog it is #809 on the OWOH tour.

  129. Greetings from BC Canada! Nice to meet you! Very nice giveaway!

  130. I'm so happy you joined in the fun this year! I love your blog and your sense of humor...and my best friend (and chosen sister) is one of Alice's biggest fans. :)

    I'd love a chance at the book (love the cover), but you can also put my name down for your soon to be created 'unofficial' prize as well. I love anything that is 'un' :)
    Thanks for being a part of OWOH. I hope you'll get the chance to come visit me as well:

  131. Oh yeah, I getcha, Alice could take a bite outta me anytime and so could Yummy boy Bill for that fact. I'd bite back. :-)
    It is wonderful to meet you and your awesome blog. Happy OWOH and I would love to be a part of your giveaway.

  132. Hi Carmen, Sorry to hear you have been unwell. Great recovery with the book as back up. And yes we all love books!!!! It was so nice to stay awhile and enjoy a coffee with you. Thank for visiting my site earlier #819

  133. Hi Carmen!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog (3AM Designs)! I've had such fun visiting your blog! Back in the day, I drove my dad and granny crazy by playing "School's Out" as loud as I could, over and over! Eventually, I'd let the rest of the album (yes, vinyl album - I am THAT old!!) play, but I loved that song to death!!
    Hope you feel better soon!
    Have fun with OWOH!

  134. Your funny...enjoyed your post..thanks for stopping by my side of the world for OWOH! I would like to be in the "unofficial" drawing since I already own both of Betz's books, and I would much rather have an "original" of yours! That way when you are SUPER famous..or infamous..I can say, "I have one of her works.." lol!

  135. Thanks for visiting! Count me in please! #269

  136. It's so nice to meet you. I commented last night but my internet went on the frizz so I am sure you never got it. I am looking forward to see what you come up with for a prize but promise me that if I win there will be no zombies or Alice Cooper in the piece, please? Please add me to your giveaway and come over and visit me too. I am No. 229 on the list.

  170. Hi Carmen, loved your post! Your work is lovely, and you certainly have - erm - eclectic taste in men with Alice Cooper(was that sensitively put,lol?)

    It's great to meet you :) I'd love to be entered into your draws - official & unoffical - thanks so much for the chance to win!

  171. ...hoping you are feeling better now,.. anyone will feel better if they are chosen in your give-a-way. awesome.. thanks for the opportunity

  172. Hi Carmen, it's so fun to read your blog! Your personality and sense of humor really shine through in your writing. Yes, please put my name in the hat for both drawings, though I'm more interested in seeing what you come up with for the unofficial canvas prize. I know the feeling -- it'd be nice to have someone drooling over my art so much that they're willing to dig out their wallet, too. But I still haven't taken the plunge into Etsy -- maybe someday! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. So nice to meet you! Hope you're enjoying the blog-hop...

    Have an artful day!
