you are so talented and creative. i think my two favorites are the whale tail and the mouse hole, with a 3rd close runner up the sunflower on the porch wall. those 3 appeal to me most but they are all super duper good

What a WONDERFUL recap Pam!!! Bestest of all is Lily gal :) I love your Christmas card, all of your paintings and crafts...and you did some renovating too. All with fibro. You certainly do have determination and grace! I'm so happy we crossed paths. :) I hope you have a nice night ringing in the new year and wish you all the best for 2018! :)

I'd say 2017 was a very productive year for you and a creative one at that. A great recap and I would agree - Lily is the BEST of all!

Wow, you had a very productive and creative year. I hope the new year brings you more of the same

Um... wow. I wrote this past year. That's about it, and I'm happy (!) because it's my calling. But you rock so hard with all your stellar efforts that Judas Priest would have to take a bow. ~grin~ Be well and have fun with your beautiful creative efforts, lovely family, and delightful fur babies (Misfire, Dakota, and Lily; all so obviously cherished) through 2018 and beyond. Hugs to you, my friend.

You'll paint anything? As if that's a bad thing ;)

Wow, you worked on many projects this year, Pam. The Angel painting is special, I really like that one. The bread sure does looks good. And I've always liked Dorothy's red slippers. Here's to more projects in 2018, you're so creative!

You got so many projects done!
