Lisa at PolkaDotCreations tagged me for the 8 Random Things meme. Since Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are my latest thing (more on obsessions in #5 below), I decided it'd be cool to do an ATC to illustrate each random fact about me. So here are my things & my ATCs. (Click on any card for a larger photo & details on how it was made.)

  1. VW Artist Trading CardMy first car was a silver Volkswagon Jetta, which lasted all of about 6 months til I was rear-ended by a semi when I was overly-cautious at a yellow light. I loved that car & have wanted another VW ever since.
  2. Peanut Artist Trading CardI've never liked peanuts. Couldn't stand to eat 'em... that is, til my husband told me about an article he'd read saying you could train yourself to stop disliking a food. I still wouldn't seek out a bag full o' peanuts, but now I don't mind eating them in a mix.
  3. Muppets Artist Trading CardMy husband & I had the Muppet song "Moving Right Along" played as our wedding recessional.
  4. Bicycle to Work Artist Trading CardI always thought it'd be cool to bicycle to work. Turns out that's a much easier task if you work from home. (Lucky for me, too, since my bike's sitting in the garage with a flat tire!)
  5. Tetris Artist Trading CardI suspect I have some OCD tendencies, so I try to avoid things (like video games) that have addictive elements.
  6. New Year's Resolution Artist Trading CardMy overly-optimistic To Do list still thinks I'm going to make New Year's Resolutions for 2007.
  7. Ingrown Toenail Artist Trading CardI was born with 3 ingrown toenails & have been plagued with them ever since.
  8. Giving Orders Artist Trading CardI hate telling other people what to do.

And with that last one in mind, I'm not going to "tag" anyone in particular. If you're reading this & you're interested, consider yourself tagged. Be sure to leave a comment below telling me where your list is. (That is, if you want to. No pressure.) Here's the official rules:

  1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
  2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
  3. Tag eight people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.
Oh, yeah, and most of these ATCs are available if you're interested in a trade. I've tagged all my un-traded Flickr ATCs with "ATC" and "available" — so you can search for the available ones using this link.


i LOVE the VW/Tetris ATC's. i've wanted a jetta as long as i can remember, and you better believe i'm the tetris champion of the world. :)

I'm sure you could beat me at Tetris -- it's been ages since I've played! I did have flashbacks to it recently, though, when my hubby managed to get me hooked playing this online Bejeweled-like game. Lotsa wasted hours there... :-)

Wow, you really went all-out, didn't you?! Very cool. Not sure how anyone is going to follow you after that, though - you've set the bar so high :-)

If you'll notice, I didn't suggest anyone else try the whole 8 ATCs thing! That ended up taking a little longer than I expected. :-)

But I am tempted to start illustrating each blog post with an ATC. After all, how long could it take to just make one card per post?! :-)
