Thank you to Whose The Mummy for awarding me the honour of telling you 7 things about myself, as if I need an excuse to talk about myself! Do want to keep things Art related though… so will tell you 7 vaguely arty things about me:

  1. I share the same country of birth as Salvador Dali, ok, so I was born in Madrid and he was born in Figueres, close enough!
  2. My mother used to be a professional clown in Toronto and then became Torontos Nr 1 balloon artist
  3. When I was growing up my favourite colour was blue, now, I think it is orange
  4. The first painting I ever sold was a set of 3 pop art teds – they now grace the walls of Zoe’s room
  5. As a girl guide I earned my arts and craft emblem (which means I got 5 arts & crafts badges first – such a swot!)
  6. Our “adoptive” grannywas the one that nurtured my craftiness, making things with me (e.g. rag doll) & showed me how to knit
  7. Contrary to popular belief, I did not do an arts degree but have a Masters in Mechanical Engineering (I have never actually worked as an Engineer though, but went into Business Consulting)

I now have to pass the award onto seven other bloggers who can take up the following challenge, if they wish:

  1. Copy the award to your blog
  2. Insert a link to the person who nominated you
  3. Tell seven things about yourself that you haven’t told before
  4. Nominate seven other bloggers for the award
  5. Link to their blogs
  6. Tell the nominees about their award

And I nominate **Drumroll** the last 7 people I tweeted (and who I think would take part):

1. Tara Cain

2. Cafebebe

3. Emma Louise

4. Marcy

5. Mr Mona Lisa

6. JfB57

7. Note from Lapland

  1. I have a response ready for tomorrow! I love the idea of mum being a clown!!


  2. I caught your tag on Twitter and if it’s OK by you I’ll respond from my other blog which I’ve been desperate to get back to anyway. I’ll let you know when I’ve done it and where it is. It’s nice to be tagged by someone other than Tara Tagger Cain for a change. 🙂


  3. Thank you now you have got me thinking ….will post on Fridayx
