I've Been Tagged

Well actually I was tagged weeks ago but I've just been slack ... ok busy .... I was tagged by fellow artist and NZ Art Guild member Chavah Kinloch, check out her great blog - http://www.chavahkinloch.blogspot.com/

The rules are simple, now I've been tagged I have to list 6 things you don't know about me, so here goes -

1) I actually hate dots - I know - hard to believe - but yes I''ve always hated dots .... however I love my dotty art ...

2) They say patience is a virtue - it's just not one of mine - but I'm working on it - however people seem to think I must have enormous patience to do all the dotty paintings .... hmmmmm

3) I go through fads with my creativity - so long as I have an outlet I'm happy - over the years I have focussed for various periods on writing poetry, cross stitch, paper tole, latch hook, cooking, gardening, belly dancing, costume making, sewing (which I also hated prior to doing it) now I found my niche - painting ......

4) I was a bit of a geek at school - entered Australian Maths competitions for fun and got a prize each year. Came top of my school for school cert English and got accepted to Uni at 16. I decided to do nursing instead and graduated top 5 in my year for nursing and was the youngest registered nurse in NZ.

5) I was a red head for 16 years. Mum said that I could dye my hair when I left school - so the very day I left I dyed it red. My hair is naturally curly (completely wild but tameable with GHD straighteners - gotta love them!)

6) I hate mushrooms (uggghhhh!) - which is apparantly unheard of with vegetarians!

Took ages to do but it's done now. Was a nice way to catch up on what the others are doing.
