Hello One World One Heart!

Welcome to my blog, One World One Heart neighbors!

Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Shelly Massey, and I'm excited to be participating in this event for the first time.

I currently live in Middletown, Ohio, but as an adult, I've also called South Carolina, Kansas and Washington (state) my home. I'm an artist, but also a workshop instructor, a wife, a mama to a two and a half year old daughter, and a manager and senior analyst for a software company based in Washington state.

In 2011, I'm realizing some big dreams. I'll be teaching at at least three art retreats - Artfest, Art Unravelled, and Art Is. And I'm even working on setting up a couple more for this year! It's been quite an adventure so far... one that has stretched me quite a bit, but it's been worth it.

I hope you'll leave a comment to let me know you were here. At the end of the fifth and final One World One Heart party, I'll be giving away the following package to THREE people randomly selected who comment on this post.
The prize package:
  • An art print of my original collage
  • A collage paper pack of vintage papers
  • A copy of my original coloring book of doodles (fun for all ages!)
  • Two of my original greeting cards

Here are two of the art prints I'm giving away. (The other one is at the top of this post.)

Thanks so much again for stopping by! I plan to make it around to all of your blogs to say hi too!

Happy One World One Heart Party to you!
P.S. Here's a link to the One World One Heart blog links --> LINK (I'm #415 on the list.)
Happy exploring!

  141. Hello, Shelley, from your latest blog follower! How nice to meet you! My aunt and uncle also live in Middletown, so we are there often! Middletown is such a small town that I wonder if we don't know some of the same people! Your talent is just amazing, and I love the art prints you're offering! I can just picture them in our house! And vintage papers! You're a girl after my own heart! I am just imagining all the things I could do with those! Coloring book....yummy! Cards...oh, they could be framed! I'm going to be thinking..."me, me, me....pick me!" and keeping my fingers crossed!

    I love your blog and looking at all the images. It's just a party for the eyes! I'll be back soon to explore more of it. Meanwhile, I hope you'll pop over to my blog and sign up for my giveaway, as well.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win such a special giveaway, Shelley!

    Best wishes,
