One World One Heart Blog Hop and back to school.

Sorry no creations from me today as I didn't get time with us having friends over for a BBQ. Which I might add was a lovely day even if it did rain most of the time. This morning my routine is changing back to normal after 6 weeks school holidays for our daughter. She is back to school this morning and ready to start Grade 9. Not sure if she is too interested in the learning side of things. However, I do know that she is keen to catch up with friends, wondering when the school photo is (normally around week 2) and saving money for roses (for herself) on valentines day. :-) That is what school is about isn't it. lol

So, since I have no creations I thought I would share this link with you about the One World One Heart Blog Hop. (OWOH) Lisa started this Blog Hop up in 2007 as way for new bloggers to get to know other bloggers. Also for existing bloggers to make more friends. I discovered this last year when I was new to blogging and discovered so many amazing blogs around the world. I was in totally awe at the creativity of people. I have visited a couple this morning and I was thinking that this is how I have gotten to follow a couple of blogs that I probably would never have discovered as they are not paper crafters but have amazing creativity in another craft area. So if you have a spare moment (preferably hours or days) visit some of these blogs and you will never know who you will discover. Oh, they also offer giveaways. I have to let you know that I am sure I visited between 20 - 300 blogs last year and never won a thing. So if you win a giveaway that would just be a bonus.


  1. I will have to check out this hop! And tell your daughter good luck on the first day of school! Grade 9 was always a tough one for us...starting highschool and being the low man on the totem pole so to speak!

  2. Happy Holiday!! Hope you had a wonderful day. This blog hop sounds very interesting.

    I will post pictures next week of the WIP and my finished tote and then we get to start PJ pants. So, tomorrow I will head out to pick out fabric and a pattern. I will fill you in more as the class comes along.

  3. It's been fun hopping through the list of bloggers/crafters! Thanks for stopping by and entering! God Luck and God bless!

  4. Happy holiday! Your story about your daughter made me smile....guess it doesn't matter what part of the world you are from....teenagers are alllll the same! : ) (I know because I have two of them!)

  5. Hi Merry and thanks for stopping by my blog. It is mind-boggling the amount of creativity out there. I'm sorry now that I didn't start a list of the names of all the OWOH blogs I've visited - now I'm getting soooooo mixed up LOLOLOL

  6. Hey Merry...thanks for stopping by my blog & entering to win one of my OWOH art-glass heart pendants!! Good luck!!

    You can get lost in these blogs, can't you? I figure I'll get nothing accomplished until I visit every last one. :o)

    Have fun hopping around!

  7. Merry, thanks for stopping by my blog on the OWOH tour this year. And thanks for visiting my Etsy shop :D Best of luck to you in all the draws this year. I think I visited close to 400 blogs last year and only won one item--there are a lot of people hopping around these things.

  9. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and entering in the OWOH give-away. I live in Canada, a long way from Australia. Your blog is beautiful, and I see another who loves good recipes. I am going to follow your blog and would love to get to know you. I invite you to join me on my followers list as well, Merry. I think the most interesting thing about this celebration is getting to meet other people with similar interests. Kind Regards. Hugs. Gayle.

  10. Merry...that's what blog hopping is all about - meeting wonderful people - thank you for visiting me.


  11. Hi there,
    Thanks for visiting my blog (#621). You asked if my second book cover was paper or embossed leather. It is polymer clay with a texture. However, it is very easy to imitate leather with polymer clay. And while I am here I am going to visit your blog also.
