PPF, We're Moved, and Happy Birthday Stacy!

Hello, I'm back FINALLY!!!!! We are all moved into our new digs. Even though foreclosure is a drag, I have to say we lucked out and found us a nice duplex to rent and the best part is not only do I get to keep my job, but I am now a wonderful 8 minute drive from work which is sheer heaven to me. Sooooooo to celebrate coming back to blogger land and PPF and our new home, I decided to paint an aceo for my dear friend Stacy from Magic Love Crow who has a birthday this month! Happy Birthday Stacy! This little guy will be soaring your way this week! And Happy PPF everyone!!!!!! I missed you all!

PPF, Chinese Dragon and Gem Show

Happy Paint Party Friday everyone! For this week I did a Chinese Dragon since this is the Year of the Dragon. And just for fun I'm including photos of my booty from the Roseville Gem and Mineral Show. Notice the ghost figure on the black stone in the center of the first pic, cool huh!  The second pic is a close up showing the beautiful colors in the labadorite. OK PPFers, party on!!!!!

Froggy for Paint Party Friday

Here's is a little frog aceo for PPF. I cheated and looked at a picture from a mini stain glass craft book. I have to do that to draw anything halfway realistic looking, other wise everything looks like cartoons or petroglyghs, lol. Tomorrow we are going to a gem and mineral show, yipeeeeeeee! Happy PPF everyone!

Happy Superbowl and PPF, yahooooo TOUCHDOWN!!!

Hello all you fellow Lizzy lovers and PPFers ( a day early if yer peeking!) I couldn't resist after seeing some of you choosing a word to live by for the New Year. The one that came to mind for me was "Trust", so I did this little aceo last weekend for PPF.
Trust in Spirit
Trust in Love
Trust in Others
Trust in Our Self

Happy New Year and PPF !

Whew this little guy partied like crazy last Sat!!! And he didn't even get a hangover! Me on the other hand spent New Years Eve and the whole weekend staying home with a nasty cold. Jeff wasn't too happy about that, or the fact that he has my cold now. C'mon everyone, join me in a rousing, " ahhhhhh, poor babe." OK yeah , he feels much better now! Anyway at least it forced me to slow down after the holiday mad race and just watch TV and paint, paint paint. So I did this little party gecko and I even got to get back to work on the ole skink ( stay tuned in the next few weeks hopefully he'll be ready to show off his new colors!) Thanks for all your great comments last time and BJ thanks you for all the wonderful compliments on her gourds! Happy PPF and Happy 2012 !
