one world one heart

Inspired by jude at Spirit Cloth and many others hosting giveaways with the intent of spreading the creative spirit around the world, I’m joining the collective and throwing in a couple of my own giveaways.

As many of you know, I’m out of town at the moment but I do have a box of lovely silk shibori ribbon on hand in addition to needle and thread and time to spare. Who knows what may be created for this giveaway? I can tell you this- it will be silk shibori and hand sewn. Just know that this creation is filled with love, each stitch taken with intent and every thought processed during it’s evolution a step towards the universal whole. You won’t see it until it arrives at your door linking our worlds heartbeat by heartbeat.

Leaving a comment will add you to the list, more than one memento may be created – who knows?
Not I, for sure.

(you don’t need to have your own blog to participate here but if you do, please link it up in your comment so we can spread the creative wealth)

  15. shibori girl

    Hi Shibori Girl (from one to another),

    You have a beautiful blog. I named mine when I was still able to dye fabric, but now that I make jewelry, I found I was stuck with the blog name. I hope it doesn’t get confusing!

    Your ribbons are lovely. Please enter my name for the drawing. And if you haven’t already, come on over for a visit (and a cookie) to check out my own giveaways.

    Nice to meet you.

  24. jenzai

    I was just about to give up going through any more of the OWOH list (talk about overwhelm!) but I saw your name positioned next to mine, and I’m a sucker for anything that sounds even remotely Japanese. : )

    I’m so glad I stopped by. I’m making it a practice to leave comments for OWOH only on blogs that I feel a connection to, that I want to take the time to actually read and get to know, and your blog stopped me cold. I had never heard of shibori ribbon. It’s positively gorgeous, and you are incredibly talented! I visited your other blog as well, so I also know that you are generous. : ) Thank you for offering to share your talent and your creativity with us. If you have a chance and feel inclined, you can come by and see my offering to OWOH as well.

    Blessings to you, and peace on the journey that is unfolding with your father (I started reading earlier posts).
