My name is Jonene Ficklin, and I'm a full-time wife, mom, writer, and professional artist. I've been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I use colored pencils, oil paints, and watercolors. I love what I do!

I've Been Meme'd

The wonderful Lydia Kang, aka, has been kind enough to tag me for a Meme. So, whether you like it or not, here we go:

If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?

The first time my husband saw me, because I can’t remember it – and that bugs.

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?

Letting my dumb friend in 4th grade talk me into drawing a nude woman during recess. (Long story short, a boy saw it, a teacher got involved, and I haven’t done a nude since.)

What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?

After much angst, and asking everyone in my family, we all concede that I’m closest to Anne of Green Gables. Although I have the best of intentions, my wild imagination and that stupid Murphy’s Law land me in plenty of fixes.

If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?

Ay-yi-yi. All right. If I must.

I pick Johnny Dep as Jack Sparrow because:

Captain Jack Sparrow: You know that feeling you get when you're standing in a high place with a sudden urge to jump? I don't have it.

I’ll just push him off.

And we’ll both be grateful, because he survives.

Name one habit you want to change in yourself.

Procrastination with big chores like Spring cleaning – which tends to happen in the fall – a year later.

Describe yourself in one word.


Describe the person who named you in this Meme in one word.

Awesome! Oh . . . and fun. And versatile. And multitalented. And smart.

Sorry, one word won’t work here. If you don’t believe me, and you haven't checked out Lydia’s blog yet, do yourself a favor. Here's another link:

Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.

It’s a fun way to connect with people.

Name at least 3 people to send this Meme to, and then inform them.

One more week for my contest to win an 8x10 Giclee print of your choice from my website. See here on how to enter:


  1. Well, I do kind of miss the parrots and jungle theme. But this is a little easier to read. And it matches your website.

    So ... Anne of Green Gables. Cool. One of my all time favorite books and movies. And yes, procrastination. One of my enemies as well.

  2. Julie, ha ha, yeah, I miss the parrots, but I'm glad it reads better with this background. I look forward to your Meme! (I hope it isn't as hard for you as it was for me to come up with the TV/movie personality you're closest to.)

  3. You're so sweet! I'm blushing. And I loved your answers. I WISH I was more like Anne of Green Gables. I love that you picked Jack Sparrow. Clever, and funny!

    Hey, nice new web layout!

  4. Lydia, thanks, ha ha! I was stumped for a while on the cliff question. It's just not a comfortable question, is it? Thank heavens we saw the new "Pirates." And Anne of Green Gables - I spent my childhood wishing for her straight, red hair, and a temper as comical as hers. Didn't get either - just the ability to fall into trouble.

    My kids are the awesome creators behind my blog and website. (I'm glad someone understands these things.) I had no idea they were upgrading my blog, but I love it! It was time for a change.
