Play 20 Questions - Let's Get to Know Each Other

I have only been blogging for a couple of months, but, well, let's just say I'm hooked. I spend quite a bit of time in the Altered Attic (or my bed, just below:) wandering through blog-world. In the mixed-media, altered art world it is gratifying to find bloggers who seem like kindred spirits; through their posts, the comments they leave on my blog, email exchanges, the way their art speaks to me, I feel a sense of greater sense of connection, tapped into that universe of creativity that keeps my world spinning.
I saw the Let's Play 20 Questions on Sweet Repeats, the delightful blog of an artist who lives in North Carolina, also where Saluda is located - one of my favorite towns where I've visited twice since spring. The game was part of a swap, but I thought it might be a fun way to tighten those connections, so why don't you play too? I emailed Lucy and she said sure, it's a fun game to play. So, copy and paste into your blog and leave me a comment so I can check out your answers- and let the universe zoom in a little tighter, while we get to know each other better. 
Let's Get to Know Each Other And Play 20 Questions!
1. What is your favorite Summer Drink(s)? Non alcoholic - Fuze (blueberry raspberry) Water, chilled coffee with vanilla soy milk, Alcoholic, no can do.

2. What is your favorite Summer Activity? Hanging with the kids. Neighborhood porch party and Fourth of July festivities.

3. If you could spend a lazy afternoon reading, what would be in your hands? Stampington mags, Cloth, Paper, Scissors, one of the many books on collage/mixed media/assemblage/art, and fiction - The Namesake by Jumpha Lahiri, Other Side of the Bridge by Mary Lawson, Frog and Toad are Friends, any New Yorker or literary short stories. 

4. What is your favorite type of craft/art medium? Wholey Paper, alcohol ink, gels and gooey stuff, found objects, photos, rusty metal.  

5. What is one art/craft supply you absolutely have been dying to have or try? My soldering gun 

What are your favorite colors in our 'rainbow sherbet' theme? Pink, lime green, yellow, and aqua

What is your favorite sweet treat? It has to involve chocolate, nuts, caramel, maybe whipped cream - or good bread pudding.

Are there any craft or art supplies you are not interested in using? (this question modified since it's not for a swap) knitting/crocheting supplies, stickers, cute

What is your favorite song today? Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

How do you 'pamper' yourself during the hot summer days? Anything to stay cool... love to swim, need a pedicure!

Do you have any kidlets or pets? I have a son (12-1/2), a daughter (turning 11), a dog, two cats and a hamster

12. What is your best potluck dish for summer get togethers? Dessert wise, my double chocolate chip brownies. Unfortunately, thanks to this arthritis I'm not active in the kitchen; I am an expert at locating fabulous food that appears homemade! 

. If you could take a summer vacation anywhere, where would it be? New Zealand, to visit my good friend, Linda, or anywhere in New England or Canada. 

Describe your decorating style. Does that say anything about your personality? Lots of art and way too much clutter. I dream of a gleaming stainless and cherry kitchen, marble tiled bath, cottage style mixed with vintage and eclectic furniture in sparsely adorned rooms sans the laundry baskets, piles that I know I'll eventually get to and stacks of books; I've been told that our hundred-plus year old home has good vibes.

What are your initials? PATE as in chopped liver!

Why do you like to join swaps? It's a great way of learning new techniques and projects that I might not have tried otherwise; also it's fun getting art mail and collecting work by other artist pals and again, that sense of community that I so value. I have made some wonderful friends through internet art groups and it's only the beginning! I have trouble with deadlines but swaps and round robins keep me going. 

You have 25 dollars to spend just on you for a little treat. What do you buy? (you can list more than one thing). Aside from art supplies? Probably a bracelet made by a local or Etsy artist.

What's one craft supply or art supply you absolutely can not live without? Golden Clear Tar Gel, my husband's dremel and paints and my camera.

Who's the last person you hugged? My daughter.

What's your favorite number and why? 42. My husband and daughter came up with that as an answer to any question they didn't know how to answer otherwise. I think it's kinda catchy (yes, a little silly, which is why I love it - and them).

Thanks for playing along--you and I are a lot alike! I haven't quite figured out how to properly use the tar gel, but do have a bottle I've been playing with.

Where in upstate NY are you from?? I'm originally from Dunkirk NY (western NY). :)
