OWOH 2011 - Final one!

Updated: (Feb 17@5:52pm) -LAST CHANCE.PLEASE NOTE, I'M EXTENDING THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENTER INTO THE DRAW PRIZES FOR OWOH TO 9:00PM (EST)  

Welcome to my blog entry for the OWOH - One World One Heart Event where bloggers get to meet new friends, renew friendship and get inspired.  I live in Ontario, Canada.  I'm a mixed media artist and love to create with different media.  I love making cards, creating beaded jewelry; journaling and taking photographs. I'm a night owl and do most of my work at night when my little guy is asleep.   I also teach at a local rubberstamp and scrapbook store.  My hubby is very patient with my abundance of art supplies, packed in the basement.   My little guy is also very creative and I try to post his creation on my blog.  I have a black cat - Minx who adopted us six years ago.


To all my last years blogger friends and new friends, thanks for joining One World One Heart.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy this magical experience.

In Dulegaya, the Guna's native language, "mola" means "shirt" or "clothing". The mola originated with the tradition of Guna women painting their bodies with geometric designs, using available natural colors; in later years these same designs were woven in cotton, and later still, sewn using cloth bought from the European settlers of Panamá.[2].

The source for traditional design inspiration for Molas include the following: natural-world native animals (iguanas, lizards, parrots, fish), local vegetation (palm trees, coconut crops, sea grasses), and t…
