MY DRAW IS NOW CLOSED – the winners will be announced on LOVE IT FORWARD on FEB 12 midnight Victoria, Australian Time (GMT +10)

 The installation of a new president, ushering in a new era in politics in the United States has had a rippling effect across the world…… there is a renewed sense of hope that has been sadly lacking in our society – in our economy and in people in general – as I said in my last post – depression seems to be the plague of our age.  In the mid '90's I was studying at degree level (University) – and one of the lecturers commented that within 20 years – 50% of people would be effected by some sort of mental illness and that more than 25% of work related illness would be to do with mental illness.  At that time, there was not as much known about it and it really was not prevelant – so his predictions seemed skewed – but here we are – and here it is…………..SO – I want to continue to be a part of the answer……. I have just had a give away on my blog – and I had forgotten about One World One Heart coming up…….so I have been a little slower to get on board………… One World, One Heart PhotoI think is one of the projects that wards of bleak thoughts – it is a project of hope and friendship and stretches across the world through art……… the brain child of Lisa Swifka

One World-One Heart….. is a wonderful concept – it's AMAZING GENEROSITY on behalf of artists across the world……. Bloggers from all over the world are giving awAbundant Life webay beautiful treasures to 'share the ART love' so to speak. The purpose is to encourage people, to visit other blogs and make connections – I have often commented how much I LOVE the GENEROSITY of the art world – and this is just another example of it……If you'd like more information (it is not too late to get your own blog on board) click on the logo.

  35. Keron, those pieces are beautiful! I made 6 collage pendants for all my sisters and my mom for Christmas. It had an old photo of our grandmother in it with things that she loved.
