One world one heart linkparty and giveaway

This post will stay on top until february 17:th. Please scroll down for newer posts.

For the fifth and last year, welcome to the one world one heart link party. The event is hosted by Lisa and the whole point of it is to "travel" all over the world and meet new artists. I've been wanting to do this for at least two years and I'm really happy I got to be a part of it this last year.

Every person participating has a doorprize - a giveaway to thank you for stopping by. You will find the whole list of blogs HERE and the list will be updated from time to time. So hop on after seeing me and make some new friends.

Ok, so here goes:

My name is Katarina, I'm 30 years old and I live in Sweden. I was a late bloomer in crafting, didn't start until my 20:ties and have tried everything from soapmaking to mosaics and everything in between. My main passion is stamping and papercrafts and that's mainly what this blog is about. But I also like sewing, jewelrymaking and hoping to get started on some scrapbooking soon (I've been saying that for at least one year now, lol). I've been having this blog for over two years and even if I had been stamping before I concider the start of my blog as the real startingpoint of my stamping. I'm on the designteam for an american stamping company called sweetpea stamps - something I'm very proud of. I was also recently selected as the winner of 2010 in the altered/mixed media category in Britain's main stamping magazine: Craft stamper.

I love participating in challenges and whenever I have some extra time away from that I sew and make jewelry. I have made a couple of tutorials both in papercrafts and sewing which you can find in the labels section in the sidebar under "tutorials". When it comes to my private life; I live with my highschool sweetheart since 12 years and we love to travel the world. Two years ago we took our divingcertificates and went on a divingtrip to Malta where the water is amazing. Our latest trip was in january for a romantic weekend to Rome (seen above is a pic of a tired me inside the Colosseum).

As my doorprize I have chosen something that I hope you will find useful: It's an album that I've cut and handsewn. I love the different patterned papers and there are extra, smaller pages in between. It's about 11x15cm (4 1/4x6") A total of 42 pages you can fill with your favourite photos, poems or maybe recipies? The papers are acidfree which means they will stand the test of time and won't ruin your photos.

If you would like a chance to win this album, please add your name and blog to Mr linky below. If you don't want to win the album, but want to say hi, just leave some love in the comments section. The winner will be chosen randomly from the mr linky list. If you don't have a blog, just link to any page on the web, but make sure to leave your e-mail address in the comments section so I can contact you if you win. I moderate my posts, so don't be alarmed if they don't show right away. The event ends february 17:th. Good luck and thanks for stopping by.
