Welcome everybody to One World One Heart 2011!

This Post will stay here till Feb. 19, 2011
for the newest posts, please scroll down.


It's the first day today and for me the very first at all. I hope we will have lot's of fun and make interesting experiences. This is my second movie project especially made for this event. I hope you enjoy it!

By the way, my Name is Judith8Acht. I'm a Paper Artist (-engineer), Author of Childrens Books (to be published...) Illustrator and Copy-Writer. I'm a devoted mother of two children (4 and 1 year old), a terrific cook ( french, italien, thai,chinese, lebanese, ..and yes, german...:-)...) I'm fascinated by japanese and argentinian culture and if someone gives me the ticket to travel, i would go to the moon!
Very welcome to my blog, feel free to ask any question you like... :-) 
My Door Prize is to be made especially for one of you! We will have some time together and as i'm a paper artist, i work strictly with paper... for those who will leave their comments with a suggestion for a wish (can be everything, from origami, a linoprint of a special motive, or a portrait of their beloved ones or a cartoon... no limits) i will choose the one with the most original idea! Take a look around my blog and get inspired, think something up and leave a comment HERE!
I will list the proposals and when the time is up, i pick one out of this lot:  GOOD LUCK!!!
Yours Judith


  1. Hi, I must be your first visitor. I'm also busy working on papercrafts, mixed media. I like your paper pattern above, very much!

  2. Hi Judith, sorry to hear you are having such a tough time with OWOH. It will take a while for people to get to your blog but it will happen. I like the little paper theater you showed on one of your blog posts and love your Monday patterns. For a prize, I would love a portrait of my son. Please add me to your giveaway and come over and visit me on my blog too. I am #229 on the list.

  3. Well this is interesting! Creation first hand. Well I write and am learning to draw and paint and I work with paper. Paper dolls mostly. In any event please add my name to your drawing. Thanks for this unique gift idea. Norma (95)

  4. Hi Judith. Thank you for opening your Blog doors to welcome me! Even though I'm a granny, I love pop-up books and paper artists. I've become a follower so I'll visit again.

    Since you're a great multi-cultural cook and a paper artist, I would love one of your designs as a cover for my cookbook! Let your creativity soar.

    Thanks so much and congratulations on a wonderful career

  5. Love all things Japanese. And paper enthuses me, especially Japanese paper.
    Have your best OWOH ever.

  6. Saw your other post...and so sorry you are finding OWOH dissapointing. But people will visit. A lot of people don't do much browsing during OWOH because there are so many posts to visit, but they save their favorite blogs to look at more later.

    I would love something Art Nouveau if I win, like your last pattern you shared. :-)

  7. Hello,
    I'm hopping around the world tanks to OWOH !!!
    Love your prize, and I would looooove to win.
    Thanks for the chance.
    Lots of greetings from Belgium.


  8. I could use a little inspiration as an artist, and asking fellow bloggers is a great idea! Oooo, but can I inspire anyone else....hmmmm, what about a 3d monochromatic paper forest relief. I'm thinking a natural color. And maybe a few drops of bright watercolors to add interest...or whatever your heart desires :)


  9. Hi Judith, das klingt ja sehr interessant. Bin neugierig, was es für ein Giveaway ist.
    Wenn Du Zeit hast, schau mal auf meinen Blog. Ich nehme auch am OWOH teil

  10. Hi Judith, love the video you made for the occasion♡ I'm a bookmaker so a small linocut from a book or the word 'book' (in text) would be most welcome to sign my work with ♡

    you are most welcome to visit my blog papieren avonturen too and enter my little prize drawing.

  13. I just spent some time looking at your beautiful blog and I'm impressed to see all the art you create! Your work is beautiful. If I won I'd love a drawing or painting of my parents who are no longer here and I miss very much. I don't have a good photo of them together except ones made with a home camera. I will surly be back to visit you again!

  15. what a cool blog! i'd love a logo designed with my favorite objects - a spider with human arms and legs and a human eyeball. i need something that says "me". check out my blog to see what i am all about....a bit whacky... cettacheese.blogspot.com i need a logo so that i can have it made into business cards, an itty bitty stamp to imprint into my metal clay jewelry and to use as a signature, etc. quite a challenge! i am into so many things, but i don't have one design that says it all.
    thank you,

  16. Hello

    You have a great blog - beautiful inspirational work - I would be delighted to win one of your prizes my very own portrait would be wonderful and I would treasure it. I shall keep everything crossed :):)

    Your work intrigues me and I have joined your followers so that I can come back for a more leisurely look

    Enjoy your trip around OWOH I hope you get many more visitors

    I'm No 177

  17. HA, ich sehe silly 3 auf deinem blogroll... hab auch die teilnahme abonniert, bin aber noch zu NICHTS gekommen... so ist das immer mit mir, überschätze die zeit, die mir zur verfügung steht:(

    zu deinem owoh:
    ich würde dir ein paar bögen braille papier schicken (kannst du natürlich auch gewinnen bei meinem owoh beitrag), und ein stück schickst du mir bearbeitet (wie auch immer) zurück. rest ist deins. interesse? vielleicht höre ich von dir...

    ehrlich gesagt, dieses blogevent bringt mich ein bisschen an meine grenzen... verbringe viel mehr zeit vor dem pc als ich möchte (und dann jammere ich, weil ich sonst zu nichts komme *g*...)

  18. So many creative bloggers! Put me in the pot for your OWOH Door Prize Please! Thanks,Tee creationsbytee@gmail.com

  38. Hoi Judith or can I say "nachbarin" :)
    ( Ich wohne in den Niederlanden !)
    Well, you asked for a idea to create for the winner ?
    If I may ask I would love a little paper of one of my chubby woman.
    I don't know if you have time, but should you, I invite you hearty to "hop" over to my blog to see what I mean.
    My blog is filled with Big Beautiful Woman but....respectfully !!!
    It's a kind of tribute to the woman who is proud to be plus sized and who dares to say that aloud :)
    Perhaps this is a unique idea for you ??
    I sure hope and keep my fingers crossed.

    Happy OWOH Judith and a nice saterday evening !

  52. Hallo Judith,

    es ist kurz vor 2 Uhr am Morgen und ich sitze immer noch vor dem Computer, obwohl ich schon längst im Bett liegen und schlafen sollte... Was soll ich sagen? Es ist halt die Zeit des Jahres -- es ist OWOH... ;)

    Dein Preis ist ja echt ungewöhnlich -- und gerade das reizt mich sehr. Du hast ja schon einige interessante Vorschläge bekommen -- und auch ein paar von der "Copy & Paste"-Crew. ;)

    Etwas auf oder aus Papier speziell für mich? Kein Problem -- ich würde mir etwas vom Wilden Westen wünschen, etwas aus der amerikanischen Pionierzeit. Was würdest Du wohl daraus machen? Einen Steckbrief? Eine Postkutsche, die in ein Städtchen einfährt? Eine Saloondame? Ein Bandit? Ein Sheriff? Oder vielleicht die Weite der Wüste? Es wäre wirklich interessant -- Deine Zeichnungen sind vielfältig und wirklich gut.

    Jetzt sollte ich aber wirklich ins Bett gehen -- mir fallen schon fast die Augen zu.

    Liebe Grüße aus München
    und schöne Träume,
    # 66 (Kette zu gewinnen)

  53. I would love to be included in your wonderful drawing, if you get a chance to stop by my blog is #809

  54. If I win, I would love a cartoon of myself and my ragdoll cat "Fonzie" being worn as my scarf. He sometimes just lay's there all 6kg of him!!!! It was so nice to stay awhile and enjoy a coffee with you. If you get the chance I would love you to visit me downunder (Australia) so I can return the favour. #819 mustlovepaint.blogspot.com

  55. Hi Judith, I'm not sure why you were not happy with OWOH at first, is it because you had just a few visitors? I'm visiting the blogs by order and just arrived here now, maybe others do like me?
    Maybe it is because you asked for suggestion from witch you will pick, and door prize is about an equal chance of winning without competing.
    You said you will pick the most original idea, but that is not necessary what I would like to get, so normally I would not have left you a comment at all.
    I'm just writing to let you know that your work is lovely, and you should keep on challenging yourself.

  56. Ooo original ideas. Something involving sheep (I raise Shetland sheep) and a wedding theme(Getting married in September 2011)! Maybe sheepies getting married :D

  60. .. what a clever give-a-way.. if i am lucky.. i live in wisconsin.. so would love something packer related/ and or a cheesehead.. lol thanks for the opportunity

  63. Hello! I'm so glad I found One World One Heart and was able to visit your blog! I'm pretty new to the blogging world and I love seeing the different ways of blogging. I hope you will check out my blog and maybe find something useful there. I'd love to be entered for your door prize, thanks for adding my name to the list!

  64. If I won- well, I'd want to talk to you! Because you seem fun. I love doing custom works myself, and I'm always a little disappointed when I can't get to know the people I'm crafting for a little.

    I think I'd want something with beetles, though...I love your fish, I think you'd draw/cut wonderful beetles!And also something with green in. Because I like green.:)

    Hope you're feeling better, and that the accident recovery progresses at light speed!

  65. Love surprises!

  67. Ah something romantic and pink for, add me to your hopefuls. Love this OWOH meet and greet. Come for a visit www.beckoningoflife.blogspot.com Leslie

  68. I love that photo of you as a clown - it's a really wonderful one - very intense but amusing! I haven't quite got a handle on all that you do yet, but here's what I think would make a gorgeous door prize to do with paper. What if you made, say an a5 sheet with a glorious rich background on it - then tore it in half and sent one half to the winner. Then both you and the winner could make something with it, or draw a picture on it (i would probably do that), and then send what they'd made to the other person.

  69. Hi, it's wonderful to meet you through this lovely event. I'd love for my name to be entered into your giveaway. Thank you in advance and have a wonderful day. :-) I'm off now to look at more of your blog!


  70. What a fun blog! And I if I'm lucky enough to win I would want a paper dragonfly...the reason is that my mother loves them (as do I) but I'm always looking for the most unique and fun dragonfly to place in fun spots around her home...then a few days after I leave she finds a new treasure! As my mom was given 4 years to live back in 1994, she has a lot of spunk and the right kind of ornery--which I love to encourage! ;)
    Please include my name and stop by when you get the chance:

  71. Hi Judith, I wrote a book too. So I know how much hard work you have been through. I love your idea for a gift. I hope my blog inspires you too. I love to talk about moms and family. Please visit my blog, too. I am the author of "16 x MOM: A Mastery of Motherhood." I am giving away my book and a couple of laminated 4 leaf clovers.

  72. Just flying in from Cody, Wyoming! Sorry to hear of your accident - I hope you are feeling better soon. I too am a paper artist...mostly mixed media. I love flowers (that pink one-liner on your flickr is awesome!) and birds. Surprise me. (stampgram AT yahoo DOT com )

  75. Hi I'm Ducky Doo the ginger tabby cat.

    hmm how about something of me?
    I dunno maybe a funny cartoon of me and my crinkleball toy? You could make the crinkle ball 3-d out of crinkled up paper.
    Or maybe if you want to be really funny, make it a giant crinkle ball chasing me (instead of me chasing it).
