One World One Heart (OWOH)

Thank your for stopping here. Hello to those who are visiting my blog for the first time. I make paper dolls. I love drawing their faces, designing their clothes, posing them and telling their stories.

Their main story they tell is about how unique and special we all are just by being.

These are the paper dolls featured in the drawing.

Please leave a comment below to participate in the drawing. I am giving away 4 paper dolls, (separate drawing for each). If you do I will be visiting you at some point.

Hello to everyone who checks in to see what I am up to. There are so many interesting blogs, with beautiful projects, and meaningful topics and heartfelt stories, and eye candy, I am honored that you took the time to stop here.

Here are the paper dolls in the drawing:





This is the final year of One World One Heart . Please leave you comment here for the drawing and click on the link to vist Lisa Swifka's blog (the originator of OWOH) A Whimsical Bohemian and get to know more bloggers.

Hi Elaine,

I'm also and Elaine and I love your paperdolls. Having been born in the mid-fifties, paperdolls were hugely popular when I was a child. I particularly remember one of Cinderella that came in the little Golden story book. I'd love a chance to win yours.

My OWOH prizes are 3 of my photos, hope you'll stop by.
