I think that we want an internet solution that makes it possible for us to smell the teas too, haha. That would be great! xP I am a tea addict as well. Jodi had sent me boxes of celestial seasonings teas since I love them very very much. Here we have pickwick teas, but I was getting a bit 'used' to them, though their autumn teas are really nice :P
Can't wait to see "lost.. but not worried" too. I hope they are going to sell these statues in the netherlands sooner or later ^^
Good luck with painting. I am working on my arthurian piece right now, umm that is,, after posting this comment, lol.
Oh man, I want that technology NOW!!!
I like Celestial Seasonings too - I have a whole cupboard full, hehe.
Vitamixes are awesome -- I use mine almost daily (which I bought second-hand on ebay for not terribly much $)....
Aha! I can't believe I haven't looked on eBay (considering the sheer amount of time I spend there, lol) - thank you for the tip!
I always thought those Tiki style furniture is so silly! There aren't many place where you can get away with having that in your house/yard but I think Florida is still ok for that :)
That tea sounds really awsome
Do you get South Africa tea there?
Lol, it's true though - they really look much better in Florida with the palm trees & flowers. When you see them up North they do kinda look silly with the snow and winter, hehe.
I'm not sure - I often buy tea online though - any South African suggestions? I know South Africa sure makes wonderful wine!
There is one South African tea that is very famous all over Europe, its called "Rooi Bos"
It means Red Bush.
It tastes really nice with a little bit of extra sugar or sweetner and I recommend you drink it with no milk. Then it tastes the best.
Oh yes!!! I have several kinds of Rooibos Tea! I looove it! There's a store called "Teavana"
at the mall by us and it has a "Toffee Rooibos" which is amazing!!
I am a traditionalist :) I refuse to taste the other flavours hehe.
I have seen green rooi bos, which makes no sense at all
How can you sell Green Red tea?!
I've been to on of those Demonstration things..pretty neat! :) Glad things are going good for ya.
I think that stuff is fun, kinda like infomercials come to life, lol.
I even made an iced tea of Valentines and also a tea with milk of it - it's really tasty. I'm gonna run out, lol.
Adagio teas are scrumptious! I order from them allll the time. :)
I can't believe how QUICKLY they ship too!

hey jasmine, i know that you paint your canvases black before painting on them, but on pictures such as your recent one, dark ribbon fairy, with light backgrounds do you still start in black?
I do that about 90% of the time. I didn't this time though - I decided ahead of time that I wanted it light, so instead I did a few layers of white/grey.
Fantastic! Lost but Not Worried has always been one of my favoritest paintings so I'm excited that they're turning her into a figurine. Yay! ^____^
Where are you and Matty going? KC? =)
Blah! I came downstairs and saw that FedEx made an attempted delivery of the sample statue. They WOULD come in that 15 minutes I was taking a shower, lol. They've never come before 9:00am either.... =P I'll be sure to sit by the door tomorrow, lol.
Yep, KC as per usual. We're going to visit my new little niece!
ARRRG!!! I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!!!!! Bloody EVERYTHING happens when I'm in the shower LOL!!!
Awww yay! You should take pics! ♥
*peeks at you on webcam*
is that an airbrush gun?
LOL - nope, just a hairdryer to speed up drying time.
All of my paintings are just done with normal paintbrushes =)
that's what i thought!
i saw it for only a flash in the webcam...then it was gone.
good idea tho...I always run out back & have a smoke while I'm waiting for stuff to dry. ;-)
I tried using an airbrush a few times when I was a teenager - some of the biggest messes I've ever made, lol.
lol...i'm sure it takes a load of practice & patience to learn how to control paint & air...
my first thought was "DAMN! She can do that to!?!" *jealous*
I have enough trouble just controlling paint alone.
It would be neat though to learn...
then i could paint pretty pickchas on my car & call it the Hoopty! Woo!
