Cyber Tag

Just home from Spring Break in San Francisco, I found a note in my inbox letting me know that I've been tagged. Karen Ponischil selected Fiber.Art.Glass as one of her seven favorite blogs. Thanks, Karen! What a compliment...

So, Rules of the Game:
1. Place the name of the person and URL on your blog.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write seven things about yourself.
4. Name seven of your favorite weblogs.
5. Send an email letting those bloggers know they have been tagged.

And, seven things about myself:

1. I speed read. Good thing, with all those blogs I try to stay up with, right?
2. I prefer tea to coffee; soy chai latte to be exact.
3. For the first time in my 50 years, I'm starting to be drawn to the color red.
4. Some of my favorite art-making music: Chris Spheris, Dancing with the Muse; Dar Williams, The Beauty of the Rain; and Anna Nalick, Wreck of the Day.
5. I LOVE earrings -- that's what I often buy when traveling; they're small, personal and memorable.
6. I can't sing a note on key, but I did finally give in to my childhood desire for piano lessons, only 30+ years too late.
7. I'm a sunshine girl. I wouldn't survive in the Pacific Northwest.

And seven more blogs that I regularly read:
1. Ruth Rae at let the beauty we love be what we do, who crosses media from fiber to jewelry like I do, and has the best quotes to get the gears whirring upstairs.
2. Andrea Guarino-Slemmons, a phenomenal glass beadmaker whose workshop I get to take next month, yahoo!
3. Judy Dunn at Artpreneur, whose writing about the Collision of Art and Business transcends polymer clay and applies just as well to all of us in other media.
4. Judy Coates Perez, a prolific fiber artist whose work has been blanketing Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors recently.
5. Joanie SanChirico, whose recent work has emphasized digitally manipulated paintings printed onto silk, with stitched details.
6. Lindly Haunani's fun blog about color.
7. Sarah Lechner, a very original fiber artist whose 3-D works fascinate me.
