One World One Heart 2011
Welcome to 2011 One World One Heart. This is the fifth and final event of its kind organised by Lisa Swifka, at 'A Whimsical Bohemian'. A wonderful opportunity to visit hundreds of blogs from talented creative people from all corners of the globe.
My name is Wendy and I live in rural Cambridgeshire. I grew up in Zambia, Africa and moved back to the UK permanently just two years ago with family, four cats and lots of books! To avoid putting my kitties in quarantine I spent some seven months living in Brittany, France. I fell in love with this beautiful part of the world and was able to indulge in one of my passions, visiting brocante markets to find all the vintage stuff I love to collect.
I started a blog as a kind of journal to record our big move to Europe adding photographs of some of the amazing places I have been privileged to visit and of course share some of my bear creations. It has grown beyond my 'imaginings' and has helped me to keep in touch with special friends that I had to leave behind as well as given me the opportunity to make new friends around the world. The many comments, kind words and sharing that I have experienced have kept my spirits up when the going has been tough. I have had the privilege of reading fellow blogger's jottings, sharing joy, tears and laughter.
I am a soft sculpture artist specialising in miniature teddy bears. I also love beading, cross stitch and embroidery and just about anything creative!
My door prize is a book entitled 'Micro Macramé Beaded Jewellery'. The book is brand new and was a prize from a magazine competition. It contains some very lovely items of jewellery worked with fine threads and exquisite beads.
To participate and be eligible for the draw in my give away you should do the following:
1. be an active blogger
2. leave a comment on this post along with a link or e-mail so you can be contacted in case you should win
A winner will be chosen on Thursday February 17th.
