Getting To Know Me, Getting To Know All About Me

I've been tagged by Chicki!

Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as their blogs. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I always draw a blank when I try to think of interesting things about myself!

Fact #1: I'm a homebody, more and more every day, and particularly since we bought our dream house almost 5 (!) years ago. There are plenty of days when I don't leave the house at all (except to go out in the yard) and I'm perfectly happy. Some of those days I'm home alone. I really enjoy alone-time, although I also love spending time with my friends and family.

Fact #2: Most of the guys I've dated or crushed on in my life have had a name that started with a J. I married the last one.

Fact #3: I really hate talking on the telephone, but I'm all about email and other online communication.

Fact #4: I have a great love for Indian food, and I really wish some nice Indian family would move into the neighborhood and offer me food in exchange for... polymer clay jewelry? Garden veggies?

Fact #5: In addition to tooling around with polymer clay, I also do digital photo restoration and retouching, and some art photography on the side. Check out my website:

Fact #6: I live very close to the beach, and I LOVE being in the ocean. I'm not big on sunning myself on the beach. My friends tend to call me a "fish."

Fact #7: My birthday is 7-11. My husband is so lucky - how could he ever forget that?!

Time once again for the monthly PCAGOE challenge. This month's theme is "Animals" and there are all kinds of animals represented in the entries. Choose your favorite and vote at our website, Voting closes at midnight on March 3rd, and the winners will be announced March 4th on the site!

I myself didn't enter this month (although I plan to get back in there next month, when the theme is polymer-clay covered eggs!) but one of my pieces (the butterfly pendant in the top center) is included in this month's prize pack, which will be given to a lucky voter chosen at random:
