Yes, I finally broke down and set up a twitter account. A year and a half ago I was saying "Blogging? Why would I do that? Who wants to hear my ramblings? Blogs are for the self-obsessed!" Well what do you I am blogging AND twittering! What have I become???? A slave to my Mac! You can follow my tweets here.

Blog TAG!

*sigh* It was just a matter of time...
*sigh* I've seen it happen to others...
*sigh* Now it has happened to me too...

I have been tagged by Chris Parry!

Here's how this works: THE RULES:*

*Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
*Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
* Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their name as well as links to their blog.
* Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So here are my seven facts.....
1. I bite my nails.
2. I like to eat raw potatoes sprinkled with salt.
3. I'm a little bit of a sci-fi geek.
4. I've been in business for 13 years and still sometimes feel like a newbie.
5. I have fired an employee and I felt both regret and joy at the same time.
6. My brother is a ROCK STAR but I have absolutely no musical or vocal capabilities.
7. When necessary, I don't mind peeing outside but I will not sleep outside!

Did you learn something about me?!?
My turn to tag! Here are my, um...I mean picks:

Timothy Adam
Ashley Akers
Beth Cyr
Cindy Edelstein (aka Jewelry Business Guru)
Julie Morrison (aka MAJESTY inc)
Tiffaney Springer (aka Evermore Soap Factory)
Amy Tavern

It's your choice, play or don't...but please, don't be shy!

Although this is pure silliness, it really is a good way to market your blog...

I'm off to Atlanta, where I will be exhibiting at the second annual Atlanta Contemporary Jewelry Show. It is a very intimate show with only 25 of the country's finest contemporary jewelry artists presenting exciting handcrafted work at the Defoor Centre in Midtown Atlanta. It's exciting to be amongst such talent. I hope to see you there!
