My One World One Heart 2011

Hi All,

I dabble in polymer clay and have been for several years. I try to post a blog entry on clay at least once a week but admit to falling short at times. We have a guild here in Toronto, Canada that's always looking for new members so anyone who is local is more than welcome to stop by and say hi, but that's not a pre-requisite by any means.

I'm participating in the OWOH giveaway this year and many thanks to Lisa of Whimsical Bohemian for offering to organize this incredible event. As of today when I checked, there were over 600 bloggers participating world-wide.

My offerings are custom paperclip earrings that are embellished with polymer clay. I discovered these paper clips at our local stationery store and thought that there must be something I could do with them with clay.

You can choose the centre colours and whether you want them patterned, shiny, or simple. I'll be giving away 3 pairs, with the random draw winners to be announced on February 17th.

The rules are simple.

1. You must have an active blog that I can visit.
2. You must leave a comment on my blog with a way to find you.
3. I think that's it.

Your blog can be about anything - sometimes it's the side trips that I make that are the most fun.

Here is a picture of some colour and pattern options.

If you'd like a link to how to make bracelets out of the paper clips, go here. It'll also give a sense of different colour variations.

In addition to the earrings, I promise to make Bottles of Hope, which are clay decorated bottles that are given to cancer patients. I will do this on behalf of the first 100 bloggers that leave comments and the bottles will go to patients in Toronto. If you'd like to be notified when I make a BOH in your name, please leave me a way to contact you. Last year I managed to make all 100 bottles, but I was overly ambitious in trying to link each bottle to a blogger's website. So this year I may not link to your post, but I'll at least state your name.

You can see some of my bottles here, here, and here. A picture is below as well.

Enjoy the blogging event!




surfingcat said...

such a neat idea using those paper clips!

Wow I am amazed that you are going to make another 100 bottles of hope, what a kind and generous person you are.


Kate said...

Your earrings are adorable. I always enjoy your BOH. I remember when I got your notification last year that "mine" was done and on it's way to a patient. It was such a cool feeling. Enjoy your OWOH ride this year, Sandy!

These earrings are so clever! I could hardly believe they were paper clips!

I love your bottles of hope program. If you could, I would love it if you could name my husband instead of me. His name is Jud Reaney and he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November. The last two months have been trying but he has really been a trooper. We have a long way to go but I am honored to be married to him.

My daughter and I have a blog and are going to put up our OWOH on Saturday. Jud and I are in California right now for a treatment but will be coming home to St. Paul that day. I hope you will come and visit us!
