OWOH Blog Event

Welcome blog travelers!

For those that come here for the first time, the one thing you'll notice right away is that I love painting, and I love sculpting art dolls. When I remember I take pictures to make tutorials and post them here. I also have some demos in video.
I live in California, I'm a mom of teens and wife to a wonderful (and very patient) man. We have a cat that decided to move in to let us feed him, and we rescued a doggy last year, who now happily digs holes all over the back yard. They are a lot of fun to watch and great source of inspiration:


ACEO size

ACEO size

When I was little girl I started my art career in my grandma's wall. She let me make fabulous murals of mermaids and squirrels and all kinds of fun stuff. I wanted to grow up to be an opera singer or a mermaid.
Well, few decades later, and I did not become a singer (for the benefit of human kind) and thank goodness I am not a mermaid either! But I continued to draw, paint and create. If I'm not doing something creative, I'm not happy. And no one wants me cranky around here! LoL

For this awesome blog event I have 3 gifts. One for each area I like working on:

 An ACEO mermaid:

 A mermaid doll:

And a cool painting:

All you have to do is post here to say hello, tell me where you come from and what gift you want.
Everybody from everywhere in the world is welcome! (I am #164 in the OWOH list)

I will be making 3 different random selections for each gift, so each participating will be playing to get what they like best according to their post.
The results will be given on the 17th of February and I will contact each winner to get their info and send the art.

Good Luck!
...thanks for visiting, hope to see you again soon!
OH! And we are also having a OWOH giveaway at the touring baby blog!


  1. Oh wow Martha, you've really outdone yourself this year. Of course I would love to win one of your beautiful paintings. Don't forget to stop by my blog as well. Happy blog hopping.

  64. Ah... my heart is lightened with my visit here - I laughed out loud about your dog digging holes and your cat adopting you (we have one of those as well). I love the little paintings of each. I especially like the hands painting, if I should be SO lucky :-)

    Thanks so much for the chance,

  66. Love your paintings and dolls! Please enter me--thanks :)

  67. What sweet and colorful door prizes!
    Please include me in your draw and come over to mine #348 and put your name in mine if you wish. Thanks.

  68. Really like your hands artwork. "Palms up" is a favorite phrase between my best friend and I. "Palms up" means you're not holding onto anything, so you're not bound to anything. That may mean letting go of something negative or even something good when you know it's a good sacrifice. FURTHER, when your palms are open, you are in perfect position to RECEIVE all kinds of good things. It's a posture of trust and faith. So yes, although I wanted to be a mermaid, too, the "palms up" imagery resonates deeply with me :-)

  69. How nice to learn more about you Martha. Love all of your art. Pets are so much fun. Hmmm I just LOVE the hands painting but as I have no where to put paintings I would love to have the aceo if I was chosen. Your so creative. What a cool mermaid doll too!

  70. You are so lucky to have had a grandmother like that! I love your paintings and especially your mermaid (I'd love to win that!). So glad to see you here~wishing you a wonderful Thursday:)

Usually adopted pets are so uyugly we love em cause of that but yours are adorable. How could anyopne have given them up? Well their loss was your gain. We have 4 cats and a dog too. Two of the cats are rescues. I would simply love to win any of your offerings. They are great! Sanna

  82. Ayala;
    I had a great time visiting your blog, etsy shop & YouTube vids. I am quite amazed at the realistic details of your dolls. The Snow bundle baby is heavenly. But, I think my fave is the one of the baby sucking its toes! I am a first time grannie to a little boychild and I can't wait for him to discover all the things that go in his mouth, and those things that
    shouldn't! He's only one and a half
    months old and growing big already.
    How do you make it slow down? Sigh. Hey, I'm a Libra also! (Oct. 4) Here's to making new friends and seeing mightly fine art
    along the way! Tina

  83. I'm not so sure which is my favorite!!! I love them all!

  84. Isn't this fun? I just love OWOH! Thank you for participating... please count me in for your terrific giveaway. If you get a chance, I hope you'll visit me too (if you haven't already).

    If I'm lucky enough to win, I'd be happy with any of your lovely offerings... but the picture of the hands is my favorite =)
