One World One Heart

Hello and welcome to Indigo Star Fairy! My name is Nicole and my blog title says 3 things about me right off the bat! I love the color indigo, stars and fairies. I live in Wisconsin where it is cold and snowy right now. It is God's country. I am a create at home mom to an almost 4 year old sweetheart and a little business, My Pepita's Magic. I make handmade art cards and custom invitations, jewelry and a whole lot of this and that. I like to eat great food, drink red wine and travel. I look forward to visiting your blogs and meeting you! This is my first year (and I guess the last since this is its final year) that my blog is participating in OWOH but I bounced around the last 2 years and found some cool blogs to visit. OWOH is open to all bloggers as a way to network and meet new people.

On to my door prizes! There may be a few more goodies but I will be choosing (at least) 2 winners as a thank you for visiting my little blog.

Winner one will receive an indoor plant star stake and a set of custom note cards (once I know your name...).

Winner two will receive this coral, turquoise and sterling silver bracelet and a set of custom note cards.

Like I said before, you have to have an established blog and a way for me to contact you! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post. The winners will be chosen February 17, 2011 and I will email the winners.

Thanks again for stopping by and good luck! :)

Hi there Nic! It's great to hear more about you and see your art. I'm sorry your little guy is sick. I feel for you, I had to wipe out a wet fart today, twice. Ahh the joys of motherhood. My almost 5 year old has been sick and an ear infection so he is on antibiotics and I do believe it's given him the Hershey Squirts. Just thought I'd share... haha

We have been hit several times with the snow but we never get a whole lot at one time. We are actually going to have temps in the 50's this weekend, yay! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a nice comment =) I do hope you return :)

Happy Creating!
