>A lovely bite – Une adorable bouchée


On Valentine’s day, as I was eating my dinner, a small piece of lettuce fell on the table. When I picked it up, this is what I saw. The Universe was sending me some love! Speaking of love… I will announce the winner of my One World One Heart giveaway later today. Stay tuned!
À la St-Valentin, pendant que je mangeais mon souper, un petit morceau de laitue est tombé sur la table. Quand je l’ai ramassé, voilà ce que j’ai vu. L’Univers m’envoyait de l’amour! Parlant d’amour… J’annoncerai le/la gagnant/e de mon tirage One World One Heart plus tard aujourd’hui. Restez à l’antenne!

Bonjour chers lecteurs et chères lectrices et bienvenue à The Art of [being] MissKoolAid. Pour ceux et celles qui ne connaissent pas l’événement One World One Heart, cliquez sur l’image ci-dessus. Pour ceux et celles qui arrivent du blogue OWOH, salutations! 
My name is Sophie and I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I consider myself an artist and crafter though I do have another job as a childcare educator to help pay the bills. I enjoy many forms of arts and crafts as can be seen while visiting my blog (art journaling, drawing, stitching, embroidery, restyling, painting, photography and so on.) I live with a very bossy cat who goes by the name of Diesel. She’s my furry baby and I love her to bits! I’ve been writing this blog for 4 years now and this is my 3rd time participating in OWOH. I’m looking forward to all the new blogs this event will help me discover.
Mon nom est Sophie et je vis à Montréal, Québec, Canada. Je me considère comme une artiste et artisanne même si j’ai un autre travail comme éducatrice en service de garde pour aider à payer les factures. J’aime plusieurs formes d’art et d’artisanat comme vous pouvez le voir sur mon blogue (journal artistique, dessin, couture, broderie, restyler, peindre, photographie et bien plus.) Je vis avec une chatte autoritaire qui se nomme Diesel. Elle est mon bébé poilu et je l’aime à mourrir! J’ai commencé ce blogue il y a 4 ans déjà et c’est ma 3e participation à OWOH. J’ai hâte de découvrir plein de nouveaux blogues grâce à cet événement.

>One World One Heart Giveaway

Comments are now closed. Thanks for participating. Winners (3 of them) will be announced on Feb. 12th around 1pm EST.

It is that time of year again. The One World-One Heart event is starting today. Click on the badge to go to the main event’s blog where you can find a list of everyone who is offering a giveaway for this year’s event.

This year, I am giving away a handmade button keyring. Well actually, for every 100 comments, there will be a prize. So more entries = more prizes. Which gives you more chances to win.

The key rings are made from metal wire and a variety of buttons both old and new as well as a bead at the bottom (you can see the red bead on the green key ring.) Only 2 are pictured but as soon as comments go over 200, I will make another one. Or two. Or three! (Winners will NOT choose colours of their prize.)

So, how can you get a chance to win one of these fabulous prizes? Very easy. Leave ONE (1) comment on this post (not any other post on my blog) and have an active blog (meaning that you update it at least once a month) or a valid email address (leave it in the comments or have it on your Blogger profile). You do NOT need to be a OWOH participant. Anyone can participate BUT I need to have a way to contact winners. Most people follow these requirements but if there is no way for me to contact you, I will remove your name from the entries.

Winners will be announced on February 12th. Good luck!



>Wow! So I’m amazed at how many people came to comment on my giveaway. 204 bloggers! (One couldn’t comment and emailed me so I included her.) I wanted to see what it would look like, on paper. So I numbered all the comments (after deleting double posts) and printed them before proceeding to cut them and fold them in half. I didn’t have a hat big enough so this empty chocolate tin box made due.

Alright, alright. I’m getting to it.

Drum roll please!

And the winners are:


Thanks to everyone who commented and took the time (or will take the time) to visit the rest of my blog. I so enjoyed this little event that I’ll probably do more giveaways in the future. Be sure to come visit again!

Regular blogging will return this weekend. In the meantime, you can go look at my Flickr account where all my Daily Art Cards have been posted and a few other creations too. Much love to the blogging community and especially to LisaOceanDreamer for hosting this wonderful event.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!!


>One World One Heart Giveaway

>Comments are now closed. Thanks for participating.

Okay! Here it is! My giveaway for the One World One Heart Event in Bloglandia!

Here’s how it works. To be eligible for this giveaway, you must leave a comment on THIS POST (not any other) and have an ACTIVE blog. If you don’t have one yet, it’s easy to start one so go ahead and dive into blogging! And remember to visit the OWOH blog for all the other giveaways. There’s is lots of beautiful stuff being offered out there so go look.

The prize: an altered slide mailer! This is the main prize as I plan to add little bits to the package but I don’t know what yet (probably one of my paper spool collages of course!)

So again, for a chance to win, leave a comment on THIS POST and have an active blog. The winner will be picked on February 14th and announced on an UPDATED version of this post AND a new post.

Good luck and thanks for participating!

Edit on Feb 11th: There will be three winners for my giveaway. I’m in the process of making two more slide mailers (colours and images will vary) and will try to post pictures before the weekend.
Also, regular blogging will return after OWOH. I need more time to create for myself!

Edit on Feb 5th: Those who comment and don’t have a blog listed on their Blogger profile, please make sure that you leave a link to an ACTIVE blog since this is an event to meet other bloggers. I started visiting the blogs listed and will continue to do so even after the event. This is NOT a giveaway just for “giving’s sake.” If you’ve already commented without leaving a way for me to see your blog, please email me a link at sophietousignant[at]videotron[dot]ca. Thank you.
