Tuesday, January 27, 2009


The local paper said that we may have the fourth January in history that will not get above freezing. So, on a chilly January morning, this is something to warm your heart.

Over at Lisa's blog, she has organized a world-wide bloggers' give-away. Share your art, photography, or crafts with bloggers all over the world, and give a bit of your creativity and warmth to someone else. AND discover cool people, too. There are currently 709 participants. The world just got a little friendlier.

Click the icon below to get more information on the project.

Participation guidelines are here.

Now, for my little contribution:

If you have an active blog, and comment here on this post, between today and February 11, 10 pm CST, I will draw 4 names to get a set of eight note cards with envelopes, each featuring one of the tropical blooms below. (I'm participant # 622. There's still time for you to sign-up, too.)

Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you--either a link to your blog, or your email, with your comments. I will announce the winners on February 12.

*sigh* I can feel my toes thawing out already. I can't wait to hear from everyone.

Have a warm day,



GraceBeading said...

I hear you on that cold... I just want my feet to warm up even for a few minutes!

Beautiful note cards, I'd love to be included.

Thanks for the chance,
Participant #19

Hello Fiona,

Please include me in your give away. I especially love those Hibiscus photos. Such unusual colors.


Glassgrrl Studios said...

Those rich, luscious photos are quite the contrast to the cold grey ice that's surrounding me. Thanks for the momentary getaway!

Come play in my draw, #310.

Lovely note cards.

Reeva said...

I'm having so much fun making friends and blog-hopping again this year.

Thanks for such a generous giveaway! I hope I'm chosen as the lucky winner!!!

carylsrealm said...

Yep, it's snowing here now! Beautiful notecards, please include moi! And stop by my OWOH!

Lelia said...

Notecards! How wonderful. Your flowers are delightful as the snow & ice are covering up all the green around here.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh Fiona--wonder what February has in store for us???? Our January hasn't been too bad other than it has been quite cold most of the month. Today it's raining --so hopefully we've escaped all of the ice that is north of us. I'd love to see another snow or two here (not big ones) --but if not, then I'm ready for spring.

Note cards are gorgeous--but won't sign up this time.. Thanks anyhow.

Mimi said...

Your work is beautiful! Great giveaway, I would love to be entered.


Sue said...

Gorgeous! I can almost
smell those fragrant balmy
breezes (until I look out and see all the snow). Please include me in your draw!
