One World One Heart 2011

Hola and welcome to my blog! I am very excited to be participating in the OWOH event for the second time.
My name is Sarita, a single mother of a beautiful Princess who will turn 6 next month - time flies! A former translator, now I'm an English teacher at a private school, a bookworm, hoarder of all things crafty/artsy and a gypsy at heart as in my "pre-daughter" life I used to roam the world and now I dream of the day I can take my daughter on world-exploring trips... as soon as money allows, hahaha.
I consider myself eclectic in my taste and love of all handmade crafts/art. We try to recycle/upcycle as much as possible, craft with paper and fabric - especially felt, and love vintage/shabby chic stuff among many other things :)
We love to cook, dance, sunsets, plants, family, friends, and if we had the space we would have tons of pets. I love the written word and therefore enjoy penpals very much. I want my daughter to enjoy "snail" mail so I sign "us" up for swaps and card exchanges as often as possible.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog, please leave me a comment to participate in my giveaway and make sure I am able to contact you in case you are the winner.
My "beachy" giveaway includes: a hand embroidered - by me - cotton panel (can be used as a dish towel, throw pillow, apron, etc), ceramic fish, wooden fish buckle, four handmade - by me - greeting cards, a magnet, small fish stamp, Mexican hot chocolate and candy - not pictured.

Now, let's go visit all the other participants! For a list of all participating blogs, and for more on this great event, I encourage you to go visit Lisa's blog - the creator - there you will find all the information and rules:

Thank you for visiting and have fun! ~

Chubby, messy fingers - wipping off a plate after a delicious Sunday morning brunch :) My sweet nephew not only enjoyed some yummy food, but also had fun playing with the crumbs and plate afterwards, while we talked the morning away!
