Seasons Greetings, Y'all!

Well, I'm sorry it has been so long since I last posted... You will be happy to know that things are very good in this neck of the woods.
So... I thought I'd give you a quickie update on what I have been up to.

First and foremost, I must mention that the UNICORN FAIRY has visited me in person (as opposed to things arriving in the mail) twice this month.

One time my U.F.F. (Unicorn Fairy Friend) sneaked up my drive way and left these sweet unicorn Band-Aids in the drivers seat of my car. **SNEAKY!!**unicorn fairy is at it again! (U.F.F. must know how clumsy I am!)

And today (which would be X-Mas Day) I came home to find this magical creature in my front door:Unicorn Fairy!
Isn't she beautiful????

I sure wish everyone could have a Unicorn Fairy. I feel I don't deserve to have such a special friend... One that makes me feel so loved and reminds me that it's not only perfectly fine to believe in magic, but also reminds me that unicorns are FR-eaking AWESOME!
Magical AND awesome AND beautiful.
AND I want to sincerely thank my fairies for their very thoughtful and wonderful gifts which I loved so very much.

Also I have been busy painting both portraits and beauty paintings for the past few months.

Here are two new portraits for you:
Shhh.  Until after Xmas.  It's a secret commission. 30"x36" Oil on canvas.
This one is finsihed and delivered and I am very happy with the way it turned out. (I hope the family likes it, too.)
And this one is almost done. Hopefully I will be delivering it tomorrow:
Getting there! It has changed quite a bit since I took this photo, but you can get a good idea of where it is headed.

I also participated in my second annual Good Folk Fest, where I sold 4 paintings.
Here's a glimpse of me in my booth:Me in my booth eating a double chocolate muffin and making my jeans tighter by the second. Taken by (and swiped from) Alan Evil.

It's a rather ridiculous photo, but well.... You know me.My booth before the opening.

In other news:
We got our kitchen, bathroom and Mark's office skim-coated and are finally getting ready to paint them, attended a very fun 80's Christmas Dance Party..
Um, yeah...
I think I'll end on that note.
Love and PEACE on Earth (and all the other planets).

Dang, Double Tagged!

Both my blogging (and real life) friends in Paducah tagged me this morning!
Thanks to Aynex and Donna Maria, who I really enjoy calling friends,
I have decided I should be a good girl and join in on the fun.
Especially since Seth tagged me about a month ago and I still haven't gotten around to doing that one.
(Um, I'm really sorry about that, Seth...)

So...enough chit chat.

Here are the rules:
Link to the tagger and post these rules on your blog. Share five facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. Tag five people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.


1. I believe that if you wish for something out loud, and can picture yourself doing it, having it, or being it....and you really mean it with all your heart... At THAT VERY SAME MOMENT the universe starts sliding doors into place to present you with opportunities and people that can help you make your wish come true.

2. Hot pink is my favorite color, but only because leopard print isn't a color.

3. I believe that a little lipstick really CAN make things better.

4. I dream very colorful, vivid, lengthy, movie-like dreams almost every night and if my husband would listen to me recite them in the mornings, I'm pretty sure I could recall the whole adventure, as disjointed as it may have been.

5. Chocolate, beer, pad thai and Graeter's Ice cream are my preferred 4 food groups.


I'm gonna tag Mags and Seth and anyone else that feels like participating.
2 outta 5 is better than zero, right?

Let me know if you play along!
