Hello, and welcome to my "One World One Heart" Blog Entry. I first have to say I'm so excited to be able to participate for the first time in the final 5th year of this event. I think it's such a great idea and I'm very grateful to Lisa Swifka from A Whimsical Bohemian Blog for sponsoring it. So with no further ado, I would like to introduce myself and give you a good sneak peek at what I'm offering for my give away here.
My name is Chris, and I am a stay at home mom living in the suburbs of Baltimore, MD. I've been married to my wonderful hubby for 23 years on February 20th! YIKES can it really be 23 years? Since I'm only "29", I really was a "child bride", ofcourse I did stop counting how old I was once I hit 29. We have two beautiful boys who are the light of my life, and both are on the Autism spectrum. Life is never dull at our house with two special needs boys and I like to call our world "Adventures in Autism". This year is the first year I have both of my kiddos in school full time and back in November 2010, I started my blog. I offer lots of Free Graphics for folks to download and use for their own art projects, which is the main purpose here, but I have also found that blogging about other things as well has been quite therapeutic for me. In my other life before "Adventures in Autism" I was a freelance illustrator and worked from home. When my first son was born, I put down my pen & brush and focused on being a mommy as it took over 8 years of infertility and several miscarriages to finally become a mother. Autism was the curve ball we were not expecting and I made the decision to focus entirely on the boys medical needs, and therapies, as early intervention is a key component to successful outcomes. Now 11 years later, I'm finally able to take a bit of time for myself and this blog is the result. I love being creative and I really enjoy sharing and meeting other kindred spirits so that is why I'm so excited about this event. Being a "Newbie" to the blogging world this is such a great venue for me to meet folks, so I really am looking forward to going through the list of participants.
Now onto my offerings:
I love Art Trading Cards and so I will be offering 3 original Art Trading Cards that I drew in Pen & Ink and then watercolored. Art Trading Cards are always 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" in size (The standard size of a baseball car). This is really the only rule that you need to adhere to when creating your cards. I've been trading and collecting for about 4 years or so, and it's a very fun hobby. So here are the cards I will be giving away.
"Clover" (Original Pen & Ink, Watercolor)
"Floral Bouquet" (Original Pen & Ink, Watercolor)
"Chickipoo" (Original Pen & Ink, Watercolor)
