OWOH - One World One Heart 

                       

Hello my Lovelies!

For all current readers of "Ze Blog" I'll quickly explain what in the world this is all about :) One World One Heart is a blogging event that happens every year (unfortunately the last year) and this is my second year participating. And of course, I'm a late entry AGAIN because I have problems remembering what day it is, but you are probably well aware of that bit of information.

This event is open to any bloggers out there, all over the world, and it's a blog hop of sorts. It's a way to discover new blogs and new friends! And the plus side is, there's prizes to be won!

If you'd like the low down on this event, head over to the wonderful Whimsical Bohemian for all the info. You can join in the fun if you'd like, there's still time to officially enter! It technically started January 30th, and goes until February 17th, when the winners will be announced for the "door prizes" given away at each blog :)

Also check out this link here for a list of all the participants on the blog hop! (but don't forget to leave a comment first to enter my giveaway! hee hee!)

Now, for all the droppers by from OWOH! Allow me to introduce myself!

I'll start off with stating the obvious - I can be a bit of an idiot. But I don't apologize for it. No worries, I don't like to offend people, but if you don't like hearing about the occasional and amusing poop and puke stories that my animals love to present me with, you may not enjoy this blog. If I didn't have a business, I'd probably ONLY talk about poop and puke, so think yourself lucky.

Yes, I have a business - mind you it's not exactly profitable at the moment but I'm trying. And I really need to try harder if I don't want to live in a van down by the river come next summer! (And if you'd like to find out why in the world I'd be living in a van down by the river, click on that "About Me" tab at the top of the page!)

My business is SassmowthDesigns - originally started as a sassy card making business...

                                  

But then I moved into the crochet...

                                

And then photography...

                               

And then sewing, felting, sculpting, painting, illustrating, scrapbooking designs, beading, home decor, woodworking, and anything else I can get my hands on. Some say I have no focus... I say I like variety. You can make your own conclusions, I don't mind.

I can be very helpful at times, so it can be quite useful following along on my business and life adventures; whenever I learn something new, or find fellow crafters with amazing talent, I love to share them! My goal is to eventually open my own brick and mortar store selling the wonderful works of local handmade talents, which of course will feature my own work as well! 

On a personal front, I'm married to a very understanding husband who constantly provides me with inspiration, ideas, comic relief, and of course, craft supplies. My dog Kermit keeps me on my toes, makes me laugh, and gets me out of the house when I need a breather. And my cat Misha eats too much food and pukes on anything of value in the house. He's very talented that way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, for the fun stuff! You could win some prizes! Your only requirement is you must be a blogger as well (which you probably will be since you've most likely entered into this event as well!) and you must comment on this blog post, including a way to contact you if you win (if you have a contact button on your blog, you can just leave your blog link, but if not, you'll need to leave me an email addy!) I really hate having to jump through hoops in order to contact someone (I have no depth perception so I tend to trip alot and fall on my face), so if you don't leave me a way to contact you, then I'm sorry sir! I'll have to pick a new winner!

And what could you win? Well, I hope you like the selection!

Firstly, you'll receive two 5x7 photography prints that happen to be my most popular:

 

                            

 

                            

You'll ALSO receive a crochet kitchen set! It will include a "primrose" trivet, a matching dishcloth, and a double layered pot scrubbie! They are made with cotton yarn, and washing instructions that I recommend are wash in cold water, but lay flat to dry. They *can* be placed in the dryer, but I find the colour fades quicker and they can become misshapen. Anyhoodle!!

                            

So, I hope you find these prizes enticing! Comment away and on February 17th, I'll use random.org to calculate who the winner is! I also hope you enjoy this blog! Everyone have fun on your OWOH travels! I know I will! And I apparently freakin' love exclamation points!!!!!

HI Kat!!!!!! I suffer from/enjoy an exclamation-point-addiction too!!!!!!!

And a paper addiction. And a crocheting addiction. And a blogging addiction. And a hot-glue-gun/E-6000 adhesive addiction.

You get the point.

I'm also a wife, mom, cat owner, crafter, blogger, and full time kindergarten teacher, so I SEE your poop and barf stories and RAISE YOU lice and booger-eating stories!

So glad to have found your blog!

If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll drop by both of my giveaways (at Twigs and Tulle and Kindergarten’s 3 R’s: I’m giving away a mini bunting and some pattern blocks) during this awesome blogging event! Happy OWOH!

Hi Kat! So nice to meet you! I have enjoyed reading your posts, and your "about me" and why you could end up living in a van down by the river. Very funny. Let's hope that doesn't happen.

I had an Etsy store for awhile. Let me say, Etsy is a joke! Have you heard of ArtFire.com? You might want to check it out. Anyways,I think your funny cards are a hit, at least with me. We all need some humor these days. Your photography is wonderful as well. Your idea about opening your own gallery/store is awesome. Go for it! Find a way to make it work. You could charge artists to rent space from you to help pay for the store and expenses. Good Luck. Never give up!

Fondly,
Rhonda
