One World One Heart 2011

Today begins my participation in a world wide blogging event - One World One Heart!

My hope is that by joining this blogging event, I will be able to connect with other bloggers who have mutual experiences and we can share both advice and intellectual resources.

So a little about me and my blog: I’m crazy! My husband can attest to that! I’m originally from Maryland but now I live in New York. I’ve been married since May 2007 to an absolutely fantastic man. I’m also a Christian who accepted Christ at age 18 and my relationship with God has changed my life.  I started this blog to share my passion for the creative arts.  I love to knit!  I also enjoy learning new crafting skills and creating beautiful treasures.  Whether it's something with yarn or some other medium, my most favorite experience is standing back, looking at a completed project, and thinking "wow that is gorgeous and I made that!"  So please go enjoy yourself in my blog :)

Also... if you're a blogger who is participating in the OWOH 2011 event, I am giving away a "door prize" for your visit!  From now until February 17th, leave a comment on any blog post with your blog website address and I'll put you in the drawing.  It's that easy!  I will draw the winner on February 18th, announce the winner in that day's blog post, and notify the winner through his/her own blog site.


  1. Hallo, nice to meet you
