I'm back.....!

I've been struggling with how to begin to blog again.
It feels like I've been gone so long...
After starting and deleting post after post, I began to visit my list of blogs that I had been following and I see that so many of those bloggers have also been "on vacation". I guess the holidays just require too much of our energy. But anyway, I feel better knowing that I'm not the only one missing in action. :)

What has brought me back to posting is the announcement that the "One World One Heart" blog event is to begin January 25th. This is such a great way to discover new blogs and new friends.
You can click on the ad just to the left of this post to find out all about it and how to join the Magic Carpet Ride. It's really quite an amazing way to travel the world and to let the winds of inspiration be your guide.
Here is the site:

I've been creating more pieces using the tempered glass technique and I think for my give away for
the One World, One Heart event, I will create something using that technique. It's just so magical.
Here is a photo of a piece I did where I took a piece of heavy bark from an oak tree and lined the inside with color, glitter and a Reiki healing symbol and then laid the tempered glass over it.

The saga of my large ugly mushroom continues and I am starting to lay the tempered glass effect on that too. I think it just may work.
Stay tuned for photo updates!

Glad to see you back Marilyn and many happy New Year wishes to you!

I look forward to doing the OWOH event this year. I loved checking out all the blogs last year and this year want to participate.

The tempered glass treatment is beautiful on the bark.

Hugs

Hi Marilyn, as you said, glad I wasn't the only one that checked out over the holidays! I'm looking into the one world one heart blog at your suggestion, thanks. Can't believe Hawaii is so far behind us, still counting my blessings when I think about what a fortunate opportunity was given us. Thanks to you, Gail and Patricia for making it possible. Give my love to Patricia next time you see her! ...Rose
