One World One Heart - So Nice to "Meet" You!



















Did you know this is the 5th and final year of the One World One Heart event?
I've never participated, but I plan to this year.

It's available to all active bloggers and is a great way to meet new people :-)
You will want to click here to see all the participants: 2011 participants

This event starts at Midnight tonight, Jan 30th and ends on Feb 17th.
Be sure to follow the link if you want to participate or would like to read more info about the event.

Everyone participating provides a door prize...so my prize to one random winner that I will select on Feb 17th will be this pretty little pendant that I made:























(Click on the images for a larger view.)

For a chance to win this prize leave a comment on this post with a way for me to email you if you win.

That's it, super simple.  :-)

Now, for a little bit about me:

My name is Leila, I'll be 34 on June 15th, I have a 2 1/2 year old with my now hubby who I married last October, I live in California, and I absolutely LOVE art.
I had another blog where I used to blog about daily life, but it got tedious and I got bored with it and stopped blogging altogether for a couple years.

 About a year ago I was surfing the internet, came across a bunch of art blogs, came across challenge blogs, and a small fire lit inside me with the desire to get back to what I love.  Art. And creating.
Growing up, my mom, Aunt, and grandma would encourage us in our creative endeavors and my siblings and I would draw, paint, create...something.  In college I was a little lost, had no desire to wrap my mind around business or the sorts, so I fell back to where I was happiest and got my BA in art and multimedia.

After college I traveled Europe for 6 months, came back home, started a series of boring jobs and lost my way again until I met my now husband, who has encouraged me in everything I've tried.

Throughout this blog you will see mostly my digital creations but you will also see my journey into jewelry making, ATC creations, and my tentative journey into painting on canvas...although the canvas "paintings" are heading mostly into mixed media art at this point, I don't have much posted on those, but I will soon.

I'm very happy that I came across this event and I am eager to participate.
So, a big "Nice to meet you" to all of you, I look forward to getting to know you!
Thank you for visiting my little corner of this big world.

xoxo
Leila

  124. Hey girl.
    I love art too.
    I love your door prize.
    You have a 2 1/2 year old? I used to be that age. So did my kids (blessedly they are bigger now and I don't want to flush them as much as I used to. See, I loathe small children but did not realize this until mine were big. Now mine can do wash and sweep and such and that's all good. Before, I was doing all of that. No fun at all)
    I used to have another blog where I also would blog about my life. It was separate from my art blog. Then I totally realized that art and life and all of that junk is the same thing, and why would I not just totally let my freak flag fly on my 'art' blog.
    I only keep one blog now and it is all me baby. I bet you just let it out here too.
    See, we are sistahs.
    No, really we ARE. Hear me out.
    I dig that you actually wrote about yourself. I am jealous that you have been to Europe. I have Always wanted to go, but I am the Queen of excuses. Also, travel requires money, and that all goes to the student loan company (okay, that's bullshit - I haven't paid my loans AT ALL.... I spend my dough on paint and wine).
    So.
    I have sharpened my elbows and will willingly struggle a bit with anyone who thinks that they are going to win that cool beady thing from you because I like it the best and that is final.
    Xx,
    Amy

    So glad that you found your way back to expressing yourself creatively. It is wonderful pendant - Owls are an important symbol to teachers and that is what I am in my professional life.

  142. Leila, what a fun time I had snooping around your blog. Love the digi: Lurking in the Shadows, way cool. Your Tree of Life Pendants are super. Might have to go back and see 'em again. So, I read Anne Rice also, what do you think of her new stuff? I miss the old Anne. I still read her, but...eh. I hope you have lots of fun visiting blogs, meeting new people and enjoying life. Tina

If you ever get around to checking things out come by and visit me some time (www.sweetlimes.com/blog) I'm a couple years younger than you but have a 2 year old and a 3 year old. I love art too, but am just new at it. Anyways, the little owl I see front and center of your necklace reminds me of my grandmother, love that about it.

  189. Leila, so nice to meet you too and I thank you for participating in this years event. I am so glad you were able to find your way back to being creative and hopefully pass it on to your children. Art lifts people up and the creation of it really does do something to our souls, doesn't it. I hope you are enjoying yourself and the 'flight' around the globe. How wonderful you were able to travel that way for real. I also live in Calif.
