** Fundraising Event & The Woodland Fairy Custom Doll **

** For One World One Heart event, click HERE **

My beautiful friend and articulation mentor, Rebecca of Recuerda Mi Corazon, has gracefully announced the dates for her Auction raising much needed funds for ~ Oaxacon Streetchildren Grassroots. This is a yearly ritual of Rebecca's, and an absolute must.

I am so excited to participate for my second year, and will  focus on the Mexican culture this time.  Rebecca is hoping to add to her list of participating artists, so if you would like to create a shrine, or piece of art work, or jewelry, which will be auctioned off online, then please go and see Rebecca here ~ Recuerda Mi Corazon ~
The actual auction will commence on 1st May, and end 7th May.
Please come and join us!

Her new owner has named her Emmentine... A woodland Fairy comissioned by the gorgeous Natalie from Australia, who loves Owls :O)


The owl mask was inspired by the paper-cut owl mask by Nikki Salk & Amy Flurry of  Paper-cut-project
If you are an owl lover, this is a lovely Blog ~ My Owl Barn

 Thank you Natalie, Emmentine was a delight to create with you!

And finally,  I just wanted to thank everyone for commenting on my blog posts, and giving me wonderful feedback.  I always like to reply personally, but I'm a little behind with the OWOH event comments!  I just wanted you to know, I'm not ignoring your precious words, and I will come & visit you soon :O)
Cheers!
