"If you hear a voice within you say, 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." --Vincent van Gogh

I was tagged by Kim and thought, since I have no art to show you, I would play along. My machine is in the shop, and hopefully I can pick it up tomorrow. I also took my serger in, so I can start using that again. OK, here goes ...


1. Link to tagger and post these rules;

2. Share seven facts about yourself, some random, some weird;

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them);

4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Seven facts about me:

1. I was a cheerleader in high school and I still cannot SIT in the bleachers when something good happens in a game - especially if one of my kids is playing - I always jump up. It's automatic. Sometimes it's embarrassing. Too bad all that flexibility I used to have isn't automatic, too!

2. I was scratched by a cat when I was 2 and have a scar on my face to prove it. However, I love cats.

3. I am conversational in Spanish.

4. I took art classes through middle school, but my teacher never particularly liked my work, so I always thought I wasn't very good at "art". I still struggle with that.

5. I want to visit Greece, Italy and Spain someday.

6. I have been fascinated by the story of Pompeii since 3rd grade ("Pompeii" by Robert Harris - is an excellent adult book!)

7. I used to ride, train, and show horses, and I miss it.

OK, I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you'd like to play along then consider yourself tagged!
And for those who actually read this post, I thought I'd share a photo of a piece I made last year before I started blogging. It was a challenge to use textural raw materials like burlap, cheesecloth and nylon outdoor fabric. I was (am) really proud of what I created. I wish I still owned it!
