One World One Heart: Global Blog Giveaway Event 2011

I’m happy to be participating in the One World One Heart (OWOH) global blog giveaway event for 2011!  This is a worldwide meet-and-greet virtual tour for bloggers complete with door prizes.

So, what could be more appropriate for this event than to give away a whole world?  A “wee planet” to be precise.  (Or rather, several…I’ll be adding one giveaway for every 100 comments so spread the word!)

The first prize is an 8″ x 8″ print of one of my “wee planets” (winners choice).  Each mini-world is lovingly created from 360 degree panorama photos and ready to explore.  If you had your very own world to escape to, what would it be like?  Perhaps:

Planet Path, rural Bryan, Texas

Planet Path

Rural Bryan, Texas

Planet Winter Hotel

Planet Swanage

Planet Swanage


Tongariro Volcanoes

Wee Planet: Tongariro Volcanoes

OR, your choice of wee planet from my gallery!

P.S. If you’re a photographer (or just handy with a camera) and live or travel somewhere beautiful, colorful or unique, please remember me — I’m always looking for great 360 degree panorama photos to create new worlds from.  I don’t get to travel much these days as I’m enjoying the company of my toddler and a brand new baby, so all of my traveling is virtual at the moment!  🙂

My other love is the book arts, creating and binding one-of-a-kind artist books by hand.  Last year I also gave away a “mini-booklace” (a mini-book necklace – wearable, functional art).  I’m not sure if I’ll have a chance to create a book for the contest this year, as it is hard to find art time (or sleep time!) with a newborn… =)

B.T.W. – My latest wee planet (shown here) is currently a finalist in the 2012 Cloth Paper Scissors magazine calendar contest, “On the Street Where You Live.”  I’ll find out the results on Friday the 11th – wish me luck!

UPDATE: Regrettably, my wee planet didn’t make it into the 2012 CPS calendar.  It truly is an honor to be a finalist, and encourages me to submit more art in the future.  Thank-you to all of those who wished me luck!
