One World One Heart 2011

*** Comments are closed. Thank you to everyone who stopped by. I will choose the winner later today - after work.  :-) *** 

** Comments will close at midnight - just about 2 1/2 hours. It is now approximately 9:39 P.M EST.  Almost time to choose a winner !! So hurry and comment below **

Hello and Welcome ! My name is Lois and I live with my 3 cats and husband in Massachusetts not far from the New Hampshire border.  I sew, knit, crochet, paint and garden. I am so happy you are visiting me. 

If you arrived from the OWOH blog you may already know all about OWOH. If you have stumbled across this post, then please do check out the link above and visit all the other lovely blogs that are participating in the 5th and final One World One Heart event.

There are so many beautiful giveaways from each of the participating blogs.  I like to give away supplies in the hope it will encourage everyone and especially the winner to create something of their own. It is very satisfying not to mention FUN !  So, this year I am offering a set of the same drawing pencils I gave last year. Sorry for the repeat, but I had three sets given to me and I held on to the extra sets with this event in mind.

If you would like to win the pencil set, please leave a comment prior to February 17th. Your comment should include how I can get in touch with you if you are the winner and also allow me to visit your blog.

The event is open to anyone worldwide that has an active blog. The winner will be drawn at random and notified via the method specified in your comment. I will also announce the winner here on my blog.

I hope everyone has fun and I look forward to 'meeting' you.

A New Year, Snow and Colds...

As 2010 wrapped up my thoughts were all about 2011- it will be a good year. I can feel it. 

So far it has been a mixed bag.  Like many people in this area, my first 'cold like' illness of the year lasted 7 days with an accompanying cough that still lingers.  This illness has really worn out it's welcome and I want it gone, gone, gone.  Being sick does have it's rewards as my cats climb on the bed to offer sympathy - - and we all snooze the day away.  Here is Jack Boy.

Then there is the snow.  We have had two Nor'easters in a short span of time. There may be more pictures of the snow another time but this image of the sky as the snow slowed a bit was breathtaking. Once again, 2011 feels magical to me.
