News worth another post!

I had forgotten all about the One World One Heart Giveaway blog happening. This was started by Lisa Swifka and you can read more about it if you click on the above link. In short, it started with one blog and blossomed into something far larger - more than 800 bloggers participated this year! The idea was to reinforce the art blogging community by introducing everyone and linking people through their blogs. Many participants offered giveaways on their blogs - all comments on certain posts were put into a random drawing for that particular giveaway. Don't you just love the Internet!?

I had wound through a maze of blogs and commented on many. Chances seemed pretty remote that little ol me would ever win any of the beautiful items being offered. Much to my surprise I received an e-mail this morning from talented artist, Gillian Murray, that I won one of her 3 giveaways! I have followed her blog for awhile now and just love everything she does. I don't know which one I have won, but you can check out all three here on this blog post:

I'm so excited - can't wait to receive it! It's coming from England, so it might be awhile before I can post a picture of this wonderful prize! Yay for me!!
