I've been tagged! Thanks Teresa. Never been tagged before, so here goes, first the Rules:
The rules of this Tag are:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write seven little known facts about yourself.
4. Tag seven people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted

Teresa lives in the Australian Bush and has some really interesting visuals about this part of the world and some wonderful feltwork to go with it, which is based on her environment. Do go and take a look if you haven't seen her work already.

1. I hate form filling and paperwork.
2. I hate waste, I am always recycling.
3. Yes, that means I also hoard things.
4. I love listening to Music when I am creating artwork.
5. I love ponds, amphibians.
6. I have fallen in a pond more than once in my life, trying to get a better look.
7. Oh goodness this has been hard, erm When I was 16 I was kicked by a horse.

Ok, that's the hard part over. Now I am handing it over to you lucky/unlucky fellow bloggers, depending on whether you like this sort thing. Don't feel obliged if you do not wish to take part.

thank you Tricia, I cherish this but I'm leaving for Germany and have lots to do. Continue being creative and sharing. I like your blog.

Paula Hewitt said...

why do i have a vision of you bending over a pond while a horse kicks you in ...upside down in a pond covered with pond weed, legs kicking. ;)

Hi Tricia,
Thank you so much for the tag, great fun!
I am a hoarder too and I am always recycling stuff!

Tricks said...

Oh Paula, you did make me laugh, no seperate ocassions lol.
However, the upside down with legs kicking did happen when I was about 5. I was down a local park and I was determined to find where these tadpoles went to. I soon found out. My older sister should have been watching me, I could have drowned. Didn't deter me though. The next time it happened when I was trying to take photos of pond life when I first went to Art College. I do love Frogs and newts and all those fascinating things under the water.
The horse saga was when I had a job at a stables. The job only lasted a month. I was in bed for quite sometime after that wretched horse kicked me. I still have a raised vein on my leg where it happened. Needless to say, I went off horses after that! I'm still laughing at your vision, ROFL.. Bw Triciax

Tricks said...

Hi Sara,
I quite understand, this tagging thing can be very work intensive. I think I might write an entry on how I do this and see if anyone has any easier method.
After seeing your creative clutter, I knew that you were like me, lol. Your picture could have been the same picture of my desk too. Thanks for dropping by Bw Triciax

Hi Tricia, glad you got to be tagged. I had not been tagged either so thought it was worth a try. Never again though.

Your fascination with frog ponds is very amusing. You obviously got very involved and passionate about what you were doing at a very young age. Good on you.

Three of the seven people I tagged actually completed the rules so far. I was surprised.

Hi Teresa,
Yes, I can thank a dear old ex head teacher that I knew when I was a lass growing up in London for my obsession with frogs, toads and newts.
Like us he lived opposite in a small Victorian terrace house and in his tiny back yard he had old baths/sinks and tanks of every description and every summer he would invite all us local children in for a ginger beer and a look at the wildlife - right in the middle of London no less. What one person can do to influence a child, he was amazing.

This tagging thing, so time consuming a bit like the award thing.
I have found the easiest way to do it is this:
To copy and paste the instructions, on to my blog.

Then choose my fellow bloggers from google reader, copy their adresses without the reader bit attached, I copy this on to notepad.
Then it is simply a matter of copy/paste a message to all fellow bloggers. It still takes forever but at least you do less typing.

I am still glad that you tagged me though. Sometimes it can introduce new people to your blog and who knows who you can meet this way. I know I was glad to meet you Teresa. Cheers and bye for now Triciax

Its much appreciated though.

Tricks said...

No problems Jackie,
I do believe that it should be optional and I know you are very busy at present. No worries. BW Triciax

Shirley Anne Sherris said...

Appreciate the tag but as I have so many fabulous blogs on my list I couldn't pick out just a few so if you don't mind I won't pass it on.
Thanks again.

Thanks ever so much for saying this Judy, it pleases me that others have been happily inspired by what I do, it gives me great encouragement. Merry Christmas to you also and I hope that your family have a great new year. Bw Tricia x

Very Best Wishes to you too Helen, nice of you to drop by. Hope you are not feeling like me at present. Too much christmas pudding, I can't move now, lol.
Never mind there's another new years resolution.
Hope you get a visit from a tall dark handsome person next week, carrying a piece of lucky coal.
Enjoy Hogmanay Love Tricia x
