One World One Heart 2011

Hello dear friends,
It's time for the 2011 and sadly, final One World One Heart event.  What an amazing opportunity to meet others and share interests.  For those that may be "meeting" me for the first time please indulge me while I introduce myself.  My name is Jennie and as the title of my blog suggests, I'm fond of Pekingese.  I have 4 female Pekes that keep me busy and love working with paper to create altered canvases, ATCs, journals and well, anything involving paper! 

I have a bit of an addiction to paper and chocolate.  I am clumsy and sometimes a bit goofy.  A true Southern belle that believes in being sassy, creative and sweet tea.  All food is better fried.  Hair must  be big and have lots of hair spray (the higher the hair the closer to God).  Glitter is a gift that just keeps on giving.  A simple pearl necklace is appropriate for any occasion.  A circle of mushrooms means that fairies are planning a party so if you're patient and quiet, you may see one!  The greatest sign of summer are lightening bugs and the sweet taste of honeysuckle.  Oh my...I could just go on and on...

I so look forward to meeting everyone and being inspired by your lives.  The One World One Heart event will be between January 30th and February 17th so please be sure to visit our generous hostess Lisa and the links to other participants.  (click the picture to visit the site)

Also, I'm excited to be giving away a door prize!  Saffron, Ginger, Pepper and Sandy helped pick the items below so I hope you'll enjoy them.  I'm having a lot of fun putting this together so it's quite possible that more items will be added - if I can get the girls to agree on what else to include!  They are such picky little Pekes!
So far we have Pretty in Pink as the theme with several pages of beautiful scrap-paper, sheet music, some great pictures from Texas as well as receipts from the 30's, old book pages and some cute shells, dice, chicks and chipboard crowns. 

Please leave your name in the comments section if you'd like to have your name added to the drawing.  On the 17th the girls will pick a winner.

Best wishes to all for an exciting OWOH!

Jennie and the Pretty Pekes

  55. Hi Jennie! It's so nice to meet you and see your blog with all your cute little pals. I had a peke mix named Pebbles that looked close to your Cujo. She could be a hateful little thing and actually I referred to her as Banshee's dog. Banshee was my Siberian Husky. As nasty as she was I cried buckets when I had to put her down.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet sweet comments. I can tell they've come from your heart. I don't know how we've not met, but I'm glad we have now! I look forward to learning more about you. I love your comment about big hair and glitter. Since I'm an 80's girl, I'm right there with ya. I swig sweet tea like it's goin' outta style, but I had to put a halt on the sugar and now use Splenda. They may come looking for me as a test subject, cause I consume at least 24 packets of Splenda each and every day! If your counting, that is 6 tall glasses with 4 packets each! haha I have a tendency to ramble on, so I'll save some chit chat for later.

    So great to meet you! Tell your mama I said howdy!

  56. oh pink is my favorite color! specially in a house of all boys! please throw my name inthe hat
