New Sugarplum Fairy & TORRID News! [Nov. 17th, 2005|08:22 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
We've been having a great time with Heather staying with us - she's been helping out a lot with chores and stuff too - she's baking cornbread and making vegetarian chili for us right now!! >^__^<

I've been painting, painting, painting for the past few days - catching up on commissions, getting new work done - I finished a new holiday painting tonight called "Sugarplum Fairy" - you can click below to see her....

"Sugarplum Fairy"



I had a lot of fun painting the goodies and details in this one!

Now for the Torrid news (that would be news about the store Torrid, not any torrid details about my life - sorry, I'm just not that exciting, hehe). I keep forgetting to tell you all - the chain of stores called "Torrid" (they're at a lot of malls, they're owned by Hot Topic, focusing on plus-sized clothing) now has some Exclusive products featuring my artwork! By exclusive it means that you can only buy them from Torrid stores or from the Torrid website - you can't get them from me, hehe. They are only $1.50 - so go buy some! The more you buy my stuff from places like that, the more likely they are to carry more of my stuff ;0) Click the links below to see - they are really cute....

"Fairy in My Window" button/pin - TORRID Exclusive!

"Pink Butterfly Fairy" button/pin - TORRID Exclusive!

I'm starving, and I think the food will be ready shortly! I'd better run - enjoy the new art & stuff - I hope everybody is doing well!

I love the "Sugarplum Fairy!" It's so colorful & festive! The christmas tree behind her really sets everything off beautifully!

Those pins are awesome! You must be so proud! ;-)

That would be awesome, but currently my contract with The Mountain means that they're the only ones making my shirts (and so far they've just done a line of Junior's/Misses, but hopefully they'll make more and in adult sizes soon!).

Sugarplum Fairy is really pretty!

Lovely buttons, too! I wish we had Hot Topic and Torrid here, in Canada. *sigh* I can't even order them online as I am not using credit cards, and I doubt they take Paypal. Oh well.

Thank you!

Ah, I know =( And since they're exclusive to Torrid I can't sell them myself either, otherwise I'd put them up in my website!

There aren't Hot Topic stores over here, or I'd buy one of those buttons. Or can you buy them online? I shall go look again. Both very pretty, and the Fairy in My Window is especially apt for a button design :)

I bought those buttons at Torrid. Hehe!! I actually got some for my friends Christmas gifts. I love your Sugar Plum Fairy, she is absolutely adorable. Speaking of all this Christmas stuff, I have a card and little present for you, do I send it to the address that you use to ship the stuff I won off of ebay too? Let me know, thanks!! =)

Yay! Thank you for buying them, hehe!

Oh thank you! Yes please - just use that address (that way it will be safe at the Posty instead of left on my front porch, lol).

First contact

Your Sugarplum Fairy is absolutely beautiful!! Congratulations!! Unfortunately we don't have any Hot Topic stores in Ireland, otherwise I'd be first in line!! I just recieved my first order of your artwork, a canvas print of "The Last Leaves", she is perfect. The computer image doesn't do it justice!! I've ordered your "Captive Fairy" statue too!! Can't wait till she arrives!!
