We interrupt your regular blogging to present: the One World One Heart 2011 Event!
For those of you regular blog readers who may be confused, it's like a giant meet-and-greet for bloggers, where everyone offers doorprizes for stopping by to visit their blog, and hopefully new friends are made in the process as well as everyone has a chance to win really cool stuff. I participated in this a couple years ago, and gained some good friends out of the deal, so I figure, let's give it a try again! This is the fifth and final OWOH event.
So now, for those of you dropping in to visit from OWOH, welcome to this little corner of 1's and 0's that I call my own. I'm not exactly typical of the type of blog you see in this event. I'm a hardcore geek, and consequently a lot of the knitting/sewing/crafting I do reflects that. I love creating things, but I also love creating communities and I'm currently the guild leader of the Order of Pointed Sticks in Guild Wars, as well as a moderator over at the anime forum Gotwoot?, and a part-time member of the fansub staff there (no, I do not speak Japanese, but I speak darn good English and put that to use as an editor).
My blog, which is neither about baking nor electronics (I know, the title may be a tad misleading), started out just as a place for me to post up pictures of my latest knitting projects. This was in my pre-ravelry days, so I had nowhere else to collect my knitting pictures. Since then, it's evolved into a place more for me to collect my thoughts and process some of the things I've been reflecting on. I am unapologetically Christian, and my scattered thoughts here reflect that, since it forms the basis of my worldview and holds together my day-to-day life. Blogs are one of those wonderful things where you can write and say the things that are uniquely you, so this blog here is about as real as it gets. My despair, my struggles, my triumphs, and all the little things in between. With a good dose of knitting and crafting still.
Anyhow, whether you take the time to browse around or are just jumping in for a chance at the doorprize, you are very welcome here and I'm glad to have the chance to meet you! Speaking of prizes, here is my offering:
Yes, the picture quality is terrible. I have temporarily lost my camera cable, so cellphone camera will have to do until I clean my room and locate that missing cable. But you may have guessed despite the blurriness and pixellation that this is a pair of earrings, made from wire-wrapped d4's. I made a pair for myself last year and get compliments on them wherever I go. The 4 is up on purpose because anyone wearing these must be rolling max for style! Ahaha... ok, that was a terrible joke. They're both blue and speckled (again, hard to tell with this picture) though slightly different shades. On purpose. I mismatch my earrings as purposely as I mismatch my socks - different yet complementary in colour while matching in form.
You guys know the rules. All you have to do to be entered in the draw is the leave a comment on this post and make sure I have a way to contact you. The contest is worldwide, and I'll be choosing the winner via random dice roll on the evening of February 17th, after which there will be a congratulatory post with much fanfare. If you're male and earrings don't appeal to you, leave a comment anyhow and I'll make you an alternate prize if you get chosen.
My theme for this year's prizes is DnD. I'm currently lacking a group, alas, but I love the imagination and adventure of pen-and-paper rpg's. Maybe sometime this year I'll find a fun group in Vancouver that fits my schedule, or else take the time to learn how to DM and make my own group. But back to the giveaway, if I get over 100 entries, I'll add a secondary prize, also DnD related. Maybe a knitted dice bag, hmm? We shall see. Comment away darlings, comment away.
Update: Comments are now closed, winners to be announced shortly!
