"Hunger Pains"!!!!!!!!!!!

I got my letter - Hunger Pains will be featured in Spectrum 11!!!! Yay! I always liked her, hehe. It feels strange to think that it's a self-portrat that will be in there - how weird!

We got our Florida License Plate today! Lol - we've only lived here 11 months after all, hehe. We picked the "Save Florida Panthers" nature plate (with the endangered Florida Panther on it). Now we have a blank spot in the front (Florida only requires a back license plate, as opposed to Missouri which needed one in front and one in back) - I'll pick out a fun plate to put up front. We will probably pick one with the Celebration logo on it, or maybe a Disney one or a Pirate Flag or something.

YAAYY!! Today I got my earrings I bought from smallgirl!!! They are gorgeous, and she sent me some candy too, hehe ;) If you ever need any beautiful hand-crafted high quality jewelry - check out her eBay store HERE!!!!!!!!

I'm getting ready to paint in just a few minutes. I should have my mermaid cuties ready to list tonight, and maybe get some canvas prints hand painted and finished as well! I've got a few things to do right quick, but then you'll be able to watch me work HERE!

I know - I was kind of surprised - I had submitted "Mother Nature (Abundance of Life)", "Silvery Mermaid", "Faery Folk Alliance", and "Blue Moon" along with "Hunger Pains". I thought they probably picked Mother Nature or Faery Folk, hmmm.....

Oh yes - I love my new earrings! Sparkly crystals, chandelier style - very pretty!

I would think they would pick "Mother Nature" too, but I think your skin on "Hunger Pains" is amazing!! Personally, "Silvery Mermaid" has ALWAYS been a favorite of mine!!

You are just too talented!

It was easy as hell to get the plate too. I waited 11 months and have no late fee LOL. When you move here I can help you figure out all that stuff. I know it is hard moving to a new and different place, but I promise I will help you out as much as I can =)

Hehe, yep! Matty's a good namer ;) He gets to be famous by proxy! Also in "The Art of Faery" he was the photographer who took the promo picture of me in the back of the book - so he's a published photographer too, LOL!

I know - well, it seems like a more recent painting now, but when the book comes out in November it will be over a year old, lol. It's like with "The Art of Faery" - When I sent them the paintings for that book, they were relatively new. Books go so sloooooowly!

I hate DMV

This is actually in response to your last post. I just wanted to utter my despise of the DMV. Every time I go there they screw me out of money! It cost me $20 to get my license renewed, and when I bought my new car, licensing cost me $562 bucks for a Ford Focus SVT! It was RIDICULOUS! I hate paying a lot of money for things that are materialistic, though.

Thanks -
Phillip

(PS, I am saving up to buy a whole bunch of prints from you, :0) ! )

Re: I hate DMV

Holy Cow!!!! That's insane!!!!!

Hehe, we got stuck with an alleged "First License Plate in the State of Florida" fee of $100.00, lol. Apparently just because we are new in the state we had to pay $100 to license our car, hehe.

Re: I hate DMV

Yea, I know. Biggest mistake I ever made was buying a brand new car, because in the state of California (before we got Arnold as Governor) we had a licensing tax increase of 300 percent! It was ridiculoous, and I don't even have personalized plates! Oh well, at least you got what you wanted... lol.
Well, I will let you go... Beautiful peace, by the way... I am planning on visiting you a lot more (lucky you hhahahaha) and I have a LJ now, too!

Sincerly -

Phillip

If I ever live in Florida I think I'll get one of those license plates with the manatees on it. I wish they had neat plates like that in Missouri.

There are so many nature plates to choose from!!!

I love the manatee:

There's one with a bear on it too that's for "wildlife" in general - http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/specialtytags/ConserveWildlife.html

And sea turtles: http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/specialtytags/SeaTurtle.html

Dolphins (really pretty!):

Whales:

Oh yes - here is ours:
http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/specialtytags/ProtectPanthers.html

They cost more, but the extra money goes to animal funds =)
