OWOH the beautiful things I won!

Things I won from the OWOH 2011 event were being delivered from near and far. Sorry it took so long to get to this post. I have a big art festival next week and have been spending much time in the studio. However, I am so thrilled with getting these treasures in the mail and making new friends. If you were part of OWOH this year, you may remember visiting these creative people and their delightful blogs. If not, I am excited to share with you the things I was sent and links so you can visit them too!

Christina Alejandro from Manila, Philippines sent me a pretty bracelet and necklace with sayings, a cat ring and clips she makes and sells at the papemelroti site . Would have done a close up but wanted to show her awesome doodles and the nice note book she sent too. How sweet to open this and find so many goodies! She makes awesome jewelry, photography, collages and sketches!
You can visit's Christina's blog at calej d'art

Isn't this adorable! Julie Stratton made this hat just for me! The stitches are perfect, she knows how to crochet! It sure makes me feel special to wear it. Her blog is full of great conversation, wisdom and recipes too!
Julie's blog is called Sugar and all that's Nice so you know it's a nice blog to visit!

Sabine from Germany made this super cool paper doll! The arms and legs are jointed and it is all hand colored. This beauty wants to dance to the sheet music she sent too.
I love how it spells "art" down the front. Her blog is all about her wonderful collage and mixed media art.
You can visit Sabine at her blog Stempeltanz , lots of art to inspire you!

Carol Hanson lives in Tennessee too! She made me this "Love Dove Mug Rug". That makes me smile! It's so pretty I don't want to spill coffee on it but I am going to use it. I will keep it in my art studio to remind me of my talented OWOH friends.
You can visit Carol and see lots of projects that she has done. I don't sew as much as I used to but know I can get lots of ideas at her blog
Stitch Across The Border

I am in love with this fox! Zan Asha draws and wood burns the most precious images. I am so proud to have a piece of her art.
I've never met Zan but feel an instant connection to her spirit and creativity. She has an open invitation to park her wagon of horses at my home, hope she brings me some Bronx Bees honey. You just have to go read her blog to learn about that!
Be sure to visit Zan's etsy shop vagabondcreations and her blog that is titled Beyond Vagabond .

I LOVE ATC's (artist trading cards), so I was thrilled when RosA from Australia not only made me one but NINE!!
And all of them so wonderful to add to my collection.
RosA is never out of ideas either, you can visit her blog
Paperchase and see piles of materials turn into clever and beautiful cards. Wonderful!

I won these gorgeous notecards from Colleen Conrad who is an incredible watercolor painter.
I am in awe of her talent and creativity. I may mail a note card, which are nicely made, to someone special but these are so beautiful one or two may end up in a frame on my wall!
Colleen's blog is Edge Of The Woods Studio where you can also follow a link to her main on line gallery. I think she is going to be famous one day!
