this year's one world one heart blogger event was an amazing journey! i joined in a little late, but not too late that i didn't get a chance to visit each and every participating blog. i didn't sleep much...and did nothing else for five days...but, hey, i got to visit them all! even had time to poke through them and get to see what everyone was doing. and let me tell you, there are some amazingly talented people out there! i feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to participate and to meet so many wonderful people and i truly look forward to getting to know many of them much better through our blogs!
but, as peter s. beagle once said, “heroes know that things must happen when it is time for them to happen. a quest may not simply be abandoned; unicorns may go unrescued for a long time, but not forever; a happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.” but this story has come to its end. it's weird...you know the end of something great is coming, but you want to hold on, just for one more second...just so it can hurt a little more... but every ending is also a beginning, or so it's said. this event is ending...in more ways than one. but there are many new friendships beginning... so hurt though it might, there is good in it, too.
amongst these good things are the feelings of the winner of sky flower:
drum roll please
and the winner is:
i have to say, wanda had an interesting strategy to win...she wrote:
"wowsers! what an awesome blog full of such talent!
thanks for a peek into your world.
i licked everyone of your pieces so no one else would touch them.
LOL also love your furry creatures.
thanks for being a part of OWOH and love your fabulous prize! "
i gotta tell ya...apparently it worked! good thing she didn't want my critters...i don't know if they'd have taken kindly to some stranger licking them! i guess i should have licked her orange-haired dotti doll while i was over at her wonderful blog (http://needlewings.blogspot.com/) and maybe i might have won it, too! (sigh) well, next time i know what to do...
so, wanda, be sure to check your inbox for an email from me asking for your mailing info and sky flower will be on its way to your door first thing monday morning! i hope you enjoy it as much as i enjoyed creating it!
