One World One Heart 2011

*** Comments are now closed. Thanks for participating. I have posted the winner for today's post ***


I am participating in the One World One Heart 2011 Event. It's a way of opening up our doors to all other bloggers....think of it as a major international housewarming! So on that note, welcome! You'll get to know me as a SAHM with a lot of energy, creativity and always with multiple projects going on at the same time. I'm married for about 5 years and have a little one, a 21 month old son, named Eliel.

Some of the things I love:

Ballroom dancing...I used to compete when I lived in the States and in fact, that is where I met my husband...he was my dance partner for oooh, one competition (3 months) before we decided to officially date. (Another secret, we were married 7 months later!)

Reading....I always have a yearly book list and a number of books on the go simultaneously.

Home Decorating....I could possibly be the Spanish Martha Stewart....always up for refurnishing, repurposing, get the point. It also helps that my next love is....

Crafting...nuff said, right? I think for the last 4 years of my New Year's Resolutions, it's been "Don't cannot keep that mere inch of that pretty ribbon because you THINK you are going to use it later on....."

And other things --- love love LOVE robin's egg blue color, hot chocolate, cheesecake (I make a killer one -- killer, to my thighs lol)...and recently have discovered that I have a secret fascination with birds --- whether art, figurines....don't know where that came from.

So come on in, get comfortable and enjoy looking around here at my little house on Blog Street.

And with any event or party, there is a door prize. To one lucky visitor, I am giving away a handcrafted headpiece, either to be used by that casually fabulous lady for a night on the town or for a bride who wants something different. This is an example of one, but I just got some new fabric that I would love to work with. The winner gets to choose from among the ones I will post on February 17th. The headpiece comes with a pin to attach to your lapel, blazer, hat or purse!

To enter: Just leave a comment below. And my door (and this event) is open starting January 30th until Feb 17th which I will then post the name of the winner and email the winner at the email address left in the comment box. (The winner will be chosen at random).

  17. Hi Ellen,

    I like your blog title and its message.

    When you have a moment please email me the "Join the (in)Courage Book Club' link I could not manage to locate it.

    Thank you, all the best and peace be with you,


  18. How very nice to 'meet' you, Ellen! I was also a bit of an Earth Mother when my daughters were little ... no homeschooling for me, though. I loved the fact that they went off to school and created their own independent memories there. (How weird is it that I'm typing this now, and I just got an email saying that you just commented on MY blog.) Anyway, you have a lovely family ... and everyone has a mouse or two at one time or another. I even wrote about mine last year on the blog.

  19. Hope you have oodles of fun during OWOH. I've enjoyed it so much over the years. Thanks for your generosity and participation in the event. What a great post, and photos. You also have some great photos you've shared in your sidebar. Count me in please.

  145. A warm hello Ellen, I love your description of your blog name. Our Heavenly Father's handiwork is seen everywhere! My husband and I tried tango lessons about 9 years ago. We are a foot apart in height and even though I wore heels, we had a difficult but fun time trying. We practiced everywhere we could; in our dining room, in the street, and even in Paris when we visited once. Alas, no tango for us. I suppose we will stick with the old standard of arms around each other, my head buried in his chest and swaying. It's worked for almost 20 years! You seem like a lovely lady. I am now a follower and look forward to visiting you again. Blessings in the journey, Rebecca #393
