allons-y!

(disclaimer:  lengthy post follows, read at your discretion 🙂 )

2/18/11 UPDATE:  please bear with me… having a rough time offline with some work-related stuff.  haven’t been able to get to picking the 10 lucky winners yet.  have another hectic day at work today, but i plan to let you know who random.org has selected very soon!  have a good day.  i am hoping for that too 🙂

2/17/11 UPDATE:  i can hardly believe that the magic OWOH ride has come to an end.  many thanks to YOU all for visiting my humble lil blog & for your lovely comments.  i have a day filled with meetings at school today, but i promise i will announce the winners of my OWOH giveaway once i get home this afternoon (cst).  so please bear with me & if luck will have it, perhaps i will be contacting  YOU later with the good news of WINNING!  have a super day! xo mary ann 🙂

it’s that time of year again… & it’s the last year too….OWOH ! (allons-y, btw means “let’s go” & it is from the doctor who series, specifically, the tenth doctor…)as  i mentioned in last post, i decided to participate as it is after all  the last chance to partake in this wonderful blog event, which was/is created & superbly organized by lisa swifka.  she is the amazing mastermind behind this incredible blog event since its inception 5 years ago. 

beginning at the stroke of midnight on january 31st, creative bloggers everywhere  the world over will discover, connect and share their heART with other bloggers.  i, along with others, will welcome fellow bloggers into our creative world, share glimpses of what we do & who we’re all about and offer a little complimentary giftie or two, all in the name of this beautiful blogwide event.     

if you have just stumbled upon my blog or never heard of OWOH, just click on the links highlighted to get the full scoop.  lisa swifka spells it all out for those new to OWOH.   

also, for those who may be a new visitor to my bloggy, i’m mary ann 🙂 and i have been blogging since 2006…in fact, my blogoversary is february 26.  back then,  i was a rather cranky, overworked speech therapist working in a hectic hospital setting. and i turned to blogging to try to get ART (aka my sanity) back into my life again.  i’ve always been a crafty sort since i was a  lil girl.  but over the years, ART sort of took a backseat and non-ART priorities took precedence during much, if not all, my waking hours.  that all changed, (thank goodness!!)  when i got into blogging.  those early blogging days really were the impetus that made me realize how essential having art be an integral part of my daily life is AND also helped shaped me into the artist who i’ve become today.   it was thru blogging where i happily & gratefully came into contact with the amazing online art community  and connect with countless kindred creative souls, many of whom i call my art circle of friends.   to borrow a quote, art is not a thing.  it is a way. 

i enjoy most forms of art: watercolor, painting, drawing, collaging, mixed media, sculpture/art assemblage, making zines & handmade books & my latest passion, welding 🙂

i also love to sew, especially hand-stitching & embroidering, dabbling in crude jewelry-making and crocheting. oh yeh, did i mention, yoga?  that is something i’m into too (though, i must confess that my yoga practice has been sporadic of late with what my current work schedule is… but hopefully, i will get back into a more regular routine again very soon)…    anyone who (really, truly) knows me, knows that i am always making something, be it for a swap, art class or just because.  art, simply said, is without question, as vital as breathing to me.  when i get cut off from “art-ing”  for some length of time, i start to get the “shakes” & feel stifled as well as uber CRANKY.  my art time is precious to me…sacred and highly prized. 

alright… that’s enough yadda yadda about me. i really appreciate anyone who takes the time to stop by my bloggy.  thank you so much!!  i will make every effort, time/schedule permitting, during OWOH to return the kindness & pay a visit to as many of your bloggies as i can.    

as in previous years, i have been known to offer up a number of goodies.  this year, the final OWOH, will be no different.  so without further ado, here are the fab goodies up for grab:

#1

an extra copy of an itty bitty book collaborative that i had hosted last spring with some art pals in the paper whimsy ning group.  this was submitted to cloth paper scissors for their call for handmade books… sadly, ours did not make the cut… so i decided to let this one go.  the slideshow below will show you the pages inside…

#2

chunky atc block w/ hanger

#3

4×4 mixed media collage on stretched canvas.

#4

handmade recipe book with pockets and blank recipe cards…

plus bonus atc on front cover 🙂

#5

another handmade recipe book (like #4 above)… this & the one above were extra favor books i made last christmas time when my sister and i had hosted a cookie swap party.  this was a big hit with our guests.

#6

a set of six 1-inch magnets that i made using my button maker machine.

#7

a set of six 1-inch pin-back buttons (or badges), also made from my button maker machine 🙂

#8

a crotched cuff i made last summer, using two different fibers (super soft cotton yarn made in italy, i believe, and rayon crochet thread… i cannot find the labels of either fibre rolls but i believe that that’s what i used… also, my wrist size is on the small size, so  i made this cuff bigger, maybe 7 or 7.5 inches long with a button clasp in the hopes of accomodating most people ) 

#9

an owl brooch/pin made from felt… 

#10

a handbound copy of my mini-zines, approximately 10-12 issues… the cover may be different, as this one was actually given away… but rest assured, i have my originals 🙂

a peek inside…

i chose these mainly because i have these on hand and also, they are all on the lighter side…which will be a good thing come time to mailing…

so if there is anything here that i’ve posted of interest to you, please let me know in the comments.  and also, please don’t forget to include your name and contact info, in case you end up being one of the lucky winners!  at the end of OWOH on february 17th, i plan on using the random number generator to select my 10 lucky peeps…

oh yes, almost forgot, this is open to any blogger with a current & active blog… that is OWOH rules 🙂

again, many thanks for stopping by! & a thousand thanks to lisa swifka for making this all possible!   happy OWOH!! & bonne chance 🙂 mary ann xo

  68. Hello MaryAnn:
    I’m a firstborn too. But, with only one brother under me, I didn’t get to do much “lording over the castle”.
    We are only 15 months apart, so he was just too tough to tangle with! I tried though. When I found your etsy shop empty I flew over to your flickr site. Lots of pretties there! And the giveaway you are hosting is very…abundant! While I love the Secret Garden book, my mostest fave is the Zine book. I don’t know alot about zines and would like to be enlightened to the subject matter. With that said, I truly hope you’re having a great time meeting new people and finding new artists to awe over. Tina
