One Heart One World 2011

Hello! I am Heather....thanks for stopping by!

This is my first time participating in this unbelievable blog event hosted by Lisa, and I am very excited!

What is One World One Heart????
One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way.  Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home....going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world.

This is my story...and I am sticking to it...

When I was little I dreamt of living a life like June Cleaver, making cupcakes and packing lunches and having a "Ward" come home every day and kiss me on the cheek. I am a hopeless romantic and want all things in life to have that soft romantic glow around them...but I am a realist...and life isn't always romantic. Cupcakes burn....and "Ward" is sometimes grouchy.
Now, I find myself living a CRAZY~ Beautiful life as the mother to four beautiful children...I didn't like being an only child very much, married to a great big husband who I drive crazy with all my BIG craft addictions and my glitter. He is very patient!!

I create whenever possible, so I don't go insane, and bake cupcakes once a week...and have found myself to be a little vintage and a little whimsical...a little Martha Stewart but with more of a Jenny Holiday (Heid) style!  If I could live my life "out loud" - right now - I would rock some pink hair in a completely vintage day dress, wearing a pair of heels and some pearls...with a cute little cupcake tattoo on my arm.....

I love to Create in all mediums...sewing, paper crafts, mixed media art, knitting,, baking, party planning. I am just a crafter with ADD!

...I LOVE to talk to people and get to know them....which is another reason why I LOVE blogging. I love getting to know people and their families, their creative interests...the list goes on!
This is NOT Mommy Blog, NOT just a craft blog...and NOT just a life journal.
It is all of the above...

I write my blog for many different reasons...

1. To remember these days that are flying by so fast
2. To keep my ADD in check
3. To share my creative endeavors
4. For my children to know more of me...the me that they don't see. Not the mom, but the actual person inside the mom.
5. For me to know more about me....
6. I am a major craft addict...a craft addict with ADD
7. I wanted to be a writer when I was a little girl..

And for a little added fun with this blog event...Door Prizes!
Do you like how I added that to the middle of this post...wanted to see if you were still with me??
I will be drawing a lucky winner on February 17th!!
Here is what I will be sending....I was feeling a little Vintage and June Cleaver'esque when I put together my giveaway...

For the Modern Day vintage Girl...

What is in that lovely little pile??
A retro inspired pair of rubber gloves - with a flowery ruffle
A vintage corsage, that I updated with some beautiful dyed Pink silk seam binding
2 dozen pearly buttons - in case you want to update a little cardigan for the Spring with a bit of vintage flair..
A glam nail file..
My favorite course glitter in Pink and Green - my favorite spring colors!
And a pack of fab vintage revisited tissues...Domestically Disabled..because we would really rather be crafting than doing domestic duties, right??
And just because....a cute little ballerina cupcake topper for your personal cupcake!

It is very easy to be eligible...
Have an established blog and leave me a comment on this post.
Please include your email address or blog address so that I can easily find you!

I will get in touch with the winner on February 17!
In case your still wanting to know more about me and my little blog?? ...a few of my favorite things...all of  which will be covered on this blog at any particular time and in no particular order!

I really LOVE textiles...paper, fabric, ribbons, trims....
Old photos, sheet music, and other ephemera.
Baking Cupcakes
Recycled creations...Jewelry making..
Party Planning
Red Wine
Diet Coke
vintage jewelry boxes
vintage broaches

HATS...I love hats!

If your here and reading this, you now know more about me than most people who see me every day in real life...I don't even think most know I have a blog...I hope you like it here at My Daily Dose of Crazy....maybe you'll come visit me some time...maybe you'll find a new idea, or just have a good chuckle??

  19. Hi, Heather. Reading your story, I saw so much of myself there! I grew up the same way with the same aspirations. At the age of 63, I am coping with widowhood, living far from my children and grandchildren, and struggling to keep a roof over my head. But always creating! I am your newest follower.

    Check my blog to see the beadwoven necklace that I am offering for OWOH.

  20. Hi Heather! I love your admissions, humor and openness! I'm a wife, mom, teacher, crafter, and many other -ers I'm certain, and my blogs (I've chosen to compartmentalize my personas over the past few months- it's actually working out!) are my outlets and venues for sharing on my timeline- I suffer insomnia from time to time, so blogging, reading, and discovering other like-minded and craftily-addicted folks can happen from the comfort of my couch without disturbing anyone! :)

    If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll drop by both of my giveaways (at Twigs and Tulle and Kindergarten’s 3 R’s: I’m giving away a mini bunting and some pattern blocks) during this awesome blogging event! Happy OWOH!

    TIme to explore more of your blog and crafty goodness!



  21. Helloooo Heather,

  108. So good to meet you! And I agree- most people that we see everyday really don't know us very well.

I don't share much on my blog either but I'm trying to stretch myself. Please add my name to your generous drawing and be sure to stop and visit me at lucky #777 on the list.
