Thank you all for the lovely comments - this sure was fun!

Again thanks to everyone - this was sooo great!
I really enjoyed visiting around the world!
Special thanks to Lisa of One Heart One World
our hostess with the mostest!

We'll be here next year fore sure!



One Heart One World!! Love it!!

OK Lisa said Introduce yourself,
tell us about you (me!)
Well here goes..

Art, writing and athletics are things I have always been good at. As a creative child and adolescent, art and writing were the way I expressed the joy and anguish of my soul. My mother was a teacher and so there were always papers, paints and art smocks at hand. In my youth, as now, I kept a notebook under my bed and often wrote at night; I could not sleep if I did not jot down the ideas that were in my head. I excelled in fine arts, english and creative writing in high school and in University. Though the focus of my post secondary study was elsewhere it was my related creative and written projects that earned me the most respect. In high school and University I wrote and did graphic work for school papers and newsletters. When I entered the workforce, I somehow managed to do the same, taking on written and graphic assignments whether it was in my job description or not. In time these elements often became part of my assignment. In hours of crisis, I turn to art and journaling as therapy.


As a mother I have embellished or made many things for my children, striving to elevate the everyday. My babies wore hand embroidered, cotton nappies; they were subjected to on going photo shoots. I sang, recited poetry and read great literature to my progeny since the day they were born. I am known for my birthday parties, always clever, imaginative, and homemade. Today my children make gifts and cards for all occasions. We have an art studio at home that we all share. I edit my children’s writing as both are avid writers and readers, and with my help and their strong will, they have self published. I am thrilled to recognize the gene in both offspring.


Through art and language I record the thoughts, prayers and achievements of my family. I am constantly saying to my friends “you should make one, its so easy”, “oh you must write that one down” as if somehow in the making and the writing we will find ourselves. As a friend, I diligently write elaborate Christmas letters to capture a fragment of the stories that reside in my heart. This fills my need produce at least some small form of written word. I have always had something to say. I have always had something to make, something to write. The more I create, the more I realize I will never be finished creating. Once started I find it hard to stop. Such is passion. As I work, I feel the comfort of wearing these old and favorite jeans, the ones that fit so well. I feel that I am home in the process.


And this is who I am, artist, author and mother. The same person I have always been. Something old, something new, and yet someone still grounded in the talents I learned perhaps before my birth, shaped through the years, by my experience.


One Heart One World How cool is this!? If you want to participate in this fabulously fun and friendly event check out Lisa's guidelines here


My One Heart One World door prize is
my From The Heart Journal
for you to create and write in!



Here's a preview
of course I can't post the whole story inside



or the winner will have no surprise,
I'll post all the pages after the draw February 17th!



Thank You for visiting!


I must say that I am so excited to have a giveaway that invites everybody, from everywhere - it reminds me of pen pals - something I loved to do as a child. Mom never let us participate in chain mail but I always thought it was so cool too!

Just leave me a fun and fabulous comment
and I will put your name in my magic dish!

- draw to be held February 17th as per
Lisa's One heart One World instructions!


May your day be happy, your mood be joyful, your soul be at peace!

  9. There's nothing I like better than writing. Books have always played such a huge role in my life. I believe my love for reading and creative writing led to my desire to write. I can't say that I'm good, but I love it just the same. It's great to read that your children have both self published. Thanks for participating in the OWOH event. It's a pleasure meeting you.

  27. Hi Lenora,

    Your journal is lovely -- the winner will be very lucky. Thanks for the chance to win such a treat.

    As for pen pals, I have written countless letters since my childhood to people all over the world. I still enjoy writing letters (and emails) to talk about the more private things there. Just like you OWOH makes me thinking of how one got to know new pen pals!

  107. I loved your introduction to yourself- yes it is obvious that you are a writer. I had a hard time writing my introduction- i'm shy and its hard to write about myself. Please add my name to your generous give away and come visit me at lucky #777 on the long list.

  134. So nice to meet you (I'm Shelle by the way)! I'm married to a writer (although he says he's a soul surfer) & around our house there is always one of us (two teenage girls too) saying (actually yelling over the neighbours that blow leaves off their driveway EVERY afternoon) HAS ANYONE SEEN MY SPECIAL JOURNAL??? Anyway, Seeing I walked through your open Blogger doorway, I'd like to ask you if you have time to drop in at mine too (I don't think I've seen you yet and you have a cool blog - NOT TO MENTION THE PRIZES)...After OWOH if you're in the bloggersphere my blog door's always open :) Now let's keep enjoying this hurly burly wonderful One World One Heart EXTRAVAGANZA :) before it times out!!!
