One World One Heart 2011

OWOH is here, hurray! 
It's the beloved Lisa Swifka's 5th annual One World One Heart Giveaway,  
My name is Waxela (wa-shay-la), and I have always been an artist.  I make art dolls and sock monkey cake toppers, among other things.  I have two kids, a toddler and a teen.  I never know who is going to have the next toddler, my teen, or me!  Occasionally my husband has a meltdown too, but usually he's picking up the pieces and putting us all back together.

I'm so happy to share this fun event with you and to offer a little something I made.

My door prize is a One World One Heart mixed media fairy that I made especially for this event:

She can be hung on a wall and has a plush body, polymer clay face, arms, and legs, and laminated paper wings, and a beaded wand.
She will be flying to the winner with a package of 4 heart fabric covered buttons which I covered, and a polymer clay textured heart which I also made.

The drawing is open to all bloggers.
If you would like to be included in my giveaway drawing, please leave a comment on this post and be sure I can reach you through your blog or leave your email address.  
The sign up ends on Feb. 17th at midnight.  On Feb 18th I will randomly choose a  winner and post the name on my blog. (I will email the winner too).
I would like it if you include a link to your OWOH post if you are participating so I can visit your blog too!
(it is not mandatory, though)

Thank you for visiting,
Waxela (wa-shay-la)

Amy said...

You look like Hillary Swank - in a good way. Totally.
Also, look here man. I saw that Lakshmi doll up there and laughed - but really to cover a shudder Because last year I had this horrible fucking dog (I said fuck on your blog) that I hated. I took her in because I am stupid. I named her Laxmi and totally tried to make it work. But she was a wiener dog and they are ugly, aren't they? I have another one, but he's a mix with a scrunchy face, so he's not so bad looking. But Laxmi was the dog from hell.
I hated her.
I got rid of that dog speedy quick and repressed the whole memory and moved on.
I joined OWOH.
And started visiting around.
And came to your blog.
And was like, 'dood, Hillary Swank'
And then saw one of my Least Favorite Words Ever.
Fucking wiener dog.
Thanks for the bad memory, man.
I love your dolls.
In fact, I am supposed to be sewing the boot onto a doll right now, but I am not. I'm messaging you about a dog.
So lame, no?

What a beautiful doll! I'd proudly hang it in my home. It's funny but now that you mention it I don't think there IS much of a difference between a teen and a toddler xD. Take a visit to my post for OWOH if you ever get through all these comments!

Your doll is absolutely adorable and I just love the sock monkey cake toppers. I don't have children so the only having tantrums is!...thankfully my husband is even keeled. but hey, that's the way of an artist, right? That's my story.
