Thank you Siggy (I think)! I've been tagged!

Very talented and utterly amazing artist Sigrid Frensen tagged me and asked me to share 7 facts about myself. If you don't know Sigrid's work, you MUST check her botanical drawings, which make me totally envious!

Ok, these are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog
2. Share 7 interesting/random facts about yourself on your blog
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post, leaving their names as well as links to their blog
4. Leave a comment on each of their blogs to let them know they've been tagged!

1. I was born on Easter Sunday. That has always made me feel special.
2. I suffer from shortness. I'm only 5'2" so I wear heels to compensate.
3. I wish I could design and build houses (hence the "chicken house"). When I was in grade school, I designed a 4-story home with an indoor pool and all the amenities a young girl would want. I probably would have painted all the rooms pink if it came to fruition.
4. I don't like being hot. I've actually plan where I live to ensure cool breezes year round.
5. I am grouchy on only three occasions, when I have not had my morning coffee, when I'm hungry, and on occasion, when I'm PMSing. Other times, I'm rather pleasant to be around.
6. I am studying Greek language at the moment (Yay, Rosetta Stone!). I totally realize that Spanish is a more practical language to learn but ... I still have dreams of backpacking through Greece.
7. When I sit with my little fluffy chickens they make me so happy that I worry I'll be one of those "chicken people" that call their hens "girls" and talk incessantly about them. (It's already happening! Yikes!)

This is a little artcard that I drew earlier and is now in the possession of a dear friend, Mariana Musa, in France.

Really, born on Easter Sunday? That I did not know.

Sigrid said...

Bwahahahahaaa! At least you didn't call me little limp wristy sigry.... and eeehm... you are sooooo welcome! Knowing you are an Easter Chick yourself explains a lot now.... ;-)

Hey Ryan ... yup, since you were the first to list your facts, I certainly didn't want to be the last! : )

Kate ... yes, you are a Christmas Eve baby and I am an Easter Sunday baby!

Siggy Piggy *endearingly*, LOL! I guess it is in my genes! Really, thanks for the tag. That was fun!

I'm 5'2" too ... it's not short, it's petite :D When you go backpacking in Greece I'm expecting you to take a break and visit me in Provence. I am EXPECTING it ...

You DO realize that this is my favourite painting of all time, don't you? I treasure it. Hugs.
