Wow, how cool, I've been "tagged!"


Well, this is pretty exciting... sometimes I feel sort of alone in Blogland, like why-am-I-sitting-at-the-computer-again-and-does-anybody-actually-read-this-or-care???? But then something fun happens, like Kate at The Peony and the Bee invites me to play a game. Here's how it works:

1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 6 random things about yourself
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them
5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up

So here are my six random things:

1. I have a weakness for beautiful Italian shoes and handbags, EVEN THOUGH I live in a very rural, muddy place where most people, most of the time, wear rubber boots and carry canvas shopping bags. You'll still see me mincing through the mud and navigating the aging floorboards of the porch of the general store in my gorgeous stiletto heels. Oh, and I am 5'9" in bare feet...

2. For a few years in my twenties I read Tarot cards for a living. And I was really, really good.

3. I love colour. I love being surrounded by beautiful colour, and in my small house I have walls in each of these colours: lime green, celery green, hot pink, pale turquoise, chinese red, and iridescent mother-of-pearl.

4. I am a word-nerd. I love words and word origins. If a book has a glossary, I will read the entire thing with great attention.

5. I have Sun in Taurus, Moon in Cancer, and Gemini Ascendant.

6. I am 44 years old and I am happier now than I have ever been in my life.

OK, now I have to tag six people... and I don't really have many blogfriends yet ... so I will take a chance and tag some people whose blogs I admire, and some people who have left me comments....

but I'll start with my friend & dance buddy Bryanna, a fabulous vegan chef who inspired me to start blogging, she's at Vegan Feast Kitchen... then Leaves of Glass, by fellow etsian & amazing jeweler... Krista at Luminous Life, who I have never corresponded with but know from her blog that we share many passions ... Nicole at Little Flowers ... who I know is taking a break right now but might want to play next month... and my fellow Vancouver-Islander at New Way to Write.... OK, that's five, and I think that's about the best I can do. SO here we go!

Yay! I'm so glad you played along! Very cool.

Oh, and I so wish it was possible to read tarot over the internet. I'd love to have you read my cards.

Okay

I have signed up at Leapinhi for the course on November 2nd.

I am traveling to a large urban centre (ick) next week. Is there a particular size of journal you recommend that I could easily find in large (gotta make lemonade with the lemons) city that would be good to gloriously fill up using your lead?

Bronwyn said...

That's great! I look forward to seeing you at the workshop! So.. for your journal... the most important thing is that the size and shape appeal to YOU... I like to work with a square or landscape format rather than the standard shape, but that's just me. Smaller is sometimes better, less blank space to worry about when you're just learning about composition .. Most important is to choose something with heavy, good quality paper that will hold up to thick layering, water based paints, etc. -- so watercolour paper or heavy acid free drawing paper ... but don't spend too much money or you will be afraid to use it!! And by the way, I will be providing small "sampler" journals for the workshop. Have fun in the big city! If it's Vancouver you're haeding to, check out the beautiful paper store in the market on Granville Island, and Opus Art Supply is there too, and will have wonderful sketchbooks. ( :
