OWOH- One World One Heart and my 3rd winner

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!

If you ever want to feel great about your self, mark this post and read it again sometime when you are behind.

At the end of January 2010, I committed to something called OWOH (One World One Heart), it is a blog social where everyone visits each others blogs and comments. Each blog host has a giveaway of some sort. I had such a great response and enjoyed my self so much. I had 2 people shy of 300 responses or comments. For every 50 people, I offered up a handmade goddess or angel made for them according to a few questions I would ask them. That is 5 pieces.

This is also my first post for the OWOH explaining the rules and what I was going through at the time.

I went to every blog on the list too. I had the time of my life for being in one of the saddest to date places I have ever been, needless to say doing the blog social is the best thing I could have done at that time, it kept me busy!

I just finished my 3rd one, 4 months later, I have two more to do. I haven’t gotten the instructions for one yet! That is a long time to finish these pieces. I did though, warn everyone that they would have to wait for me, the reason being that these pieces, even though I have information, pretty much speak to me about what is supposed to be on the goddess or angel. It takes time. I have to be in the right frame of mind. There is also study involved. Visiting pages and looking for info, every detail will make a difference in the finished pieces. Not only that, I have no idea what some of the things people request are.  

The 3rd one is gone, it was shipped off and Elizabeth from Altered Book Lover http://alteredbooklover.blogspot.com/  has received hers. I took a very long time with this one, there were not many things for me to choose from on her list. She loves her cat Bleubeard and her friend plays the steel drum, all the clay and wire should match, do not clutter it up, Crown and wings. I thought “oh merde” this is not enough info. I can not do this. Not enough info. And what the hell is a steel drum anyway??

Well, here it is, uncluttered for my work, matching wires and clay, steel drum, Bleubeard, wings crown.

I added a halo of peridot and hoped that it wasn’t over the top and a bit too much per Elizabeth’s instructions.

The reason I added the peridot is myth, but lovely myth. 

Mystical Properties

Peridot jewelry is used to help dreams become a reality.

Lore

Peridot is given as a symbol of fame, dignity, and protection.

Legend has it that pirates favored peridot to protect them against evil. When the peridot was set in gold it also protected the wearer from terrors in the night.

Peridot has been mined from St John’s Island in the Red Sea for over 3500 years.

Peridot is the US State Gemstone of Nevada.

The stone is so sweetly light green in chip form that I thought it would not distract. Giving someone protection in thought and heart is a good thing in my opinion and I have grown to like Elizabeth a lot. I like her attitude and her blog.

Not only have I gained insight about clutter, steel drums, and helped my sad state, I feel I have also gained friends from this experience. The more I blog, the more I love it.
