I've Been "Tagged" by Nancy Tobin

How exciting it was to find a comment left by a very talented artist by the name of Nancy Tobin. You may follow the link in the heading of this post to find her beautiful blog. Her lovely mixed media paintings and prints can by found on ETSY. I am in love with the way she uses transparent layers to build a rich pools of color.

Nancy has "tagged" me to divulge six things about me and pass this challenge to six others. I'm not sure these are quirky, but I'm sure they will bore you! So, here it goes...

1...unfortunately, I grind my teeth at night
2...my lovebird, Dumpling, insists on sitting right on top of my head
3...I eat sardines almost every day for lunch, sitting in my cube at work and looking at ETSY
4...I'm an adopted only child who had only one child (neither of us are spoiled!)
5...I like to watch Dexter on Showtime
6...I can never decide what my favorite color is...I'm immediately attracted to a rainbow of colors
7...I never know when enough is enough (see what I mean...this is already one too many here)

Okay...enough of that. Now I'm going to go tag six other wonderfully witty and talented women whose blogs I love to follow. Again, thank you Nancy for your kind comments about my wee, little blog and for "tagging" me. Now, anyone else who stops by, go visit Nancy's blog and look at all her beautiful work for yourself!

Hey Quite the Crow...thanks for tagging me! I had a lot of fun putting my list together. Stop on over if you get a chance!

Hi Elizabeth,
Thanks you so much for the lovely post, and mention of my work!
I love the new picture that you have up on your heading. How do you get that darling bird to cooperate? (We have a Sun Conure, and she's not such a patient model.)
I like the Christmas music as well. I'm a big fan of Manhiem Steamroller's holiday tunes, but I hadn't heard that one yet… is it new?
Thanks again, and hope you have a great Holiday!
Best, Nancy

Nancy...thanks for the kudos on Dumpling's holiday shoot for the header. He is quite a ham and loves having his photo taken. The trick to that pose was his uncertainty about perching on the slippery candy canes. I didn't remove their wrappers since we wanted to be able to actually eat them after the shoot. I think they must have been like standing on ice would be for us.

I have all of the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas music. These tunes are represented across their various albums.

Joycee...I was happy to read that you are also an only child. I too didn't play with dolls much as a child, but I LOVE yours now! I guess it's the difference between true art and love of the craft and mass-produced plastic ugly that makes it appealing for me! Your snowball is the best! I think I'm going to have to write an entry about your talented self!
