Good morning! Cool stuff ahead..... [Jan. 2nd, 2006|11:10 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Sorry to grumble about the Post Office earlier, lol - I was just planning to do a lot of shipping today. And I was also expecting a LOT of packages today. Hmph. Closed two days in a row..... =P

I keep looking at my new Fairy Secrets painting on my desk - it looks so pretty!

Blah - whenever I go up to Kansas City during the non-summer months, I always get sick. And I pretty much never get sick unless I go up to Kansas City during the non-summer months. So I have a sore throat today, argh. It'll probably clear up soon though, back home here in Florida with my windows open and my 83 degree weather, mwahaha.

Hey - check this out - I got to see my new silver jewelry that I have licensed with PeterStone:



Aren't they neat? I will post more info when I have it, and when they will be for sale, etc. I'm really really happy with how they turned out, I love it when I have new merchandise!

In other merchandising news, it looks like Tree-Free has picked up eleven of my images for cards - I'm really excited about that - they have been my favourite card company for many many years.

Gah - I have so much work to do. As usual whenever I go out of town, lol. I'm going to be gone for QUITE a while (like a week and a half or two weeks) in May, I'm already planning for it, hehe. I'm going with my sister Kachina & her family on a road trip visiting different amusement parks (yes, I know I live in Orlando already, hehe, but we like to visit other amusement parks too!).

Today I'll be catching up on various things, and I might start a new painting a little later on this afternoon. I have a fun custom piece to work on, and also a big blank canvas that Matt just cut for me (24"x30" - the biggest size I've done, other than commissions!). Not sure what I'll paint on it yet, I have a list of new paintings I want to do and I want to do them all right away, lol, it's hard to decide.

Off I go....

I KNOW! I just went to the post office this morning only to discover it was closed. I'm especially bummed about the receiving end of things - my mom's birthday is tomorrow and the package I am expecting is due to arrive. We don't get our mail until 5, 5:30 here so I will have to distract her with other shiny things tomorrow. At least when we lived in South Village we would get it around 4, 4:30. Blah!

Banks observe federal holidays, so my guess is they are closed. However, I don't know for a fact that they are closed.

i, for one, was glad of the PO grumbling, as i was just fixing to load up a bunch of packages and head out to the PO myself!

my captive fairy sculpture arrived last week, and she is WONDERFUL! they did such an excellent job of staying faithful to your work!

I'm annoyed about the post office, too! I only have a couple things to ship, but it still annoys me. Oh well.

Cool jewelry! I jusy ordered a bunch of fancy postcards of my art, they'll be here on Thursday - I hope they turn out well!

Hehe, oh man - I have been in books and have had products that spell my name wrong a lot =/ Most people put two "t"s in Becket.

I filled out the "credit line" part of the contract with my proper name, so we'll see.

They are really neat! They are sterling silver so they're not exactly cheap, hehe, so I probably won't stock them myself (it would take a lot of "capital" to get a bunch of them to sell myself), but I've found some stores online already selling them - I'll post links in not too long!

Wow - I WISH I got money back in taxes. I always end up having to pay thousands and thousands. Blah. You're right though - other people getting their refunds often head to eBay to spend, hehe!

The pendants are cute, but that painting is amazing! I was just playing with some skeleton keys yesterday and wondering why I never see them in fairy paintings. ^_^

I am so loving the new silver jewelry - three of my favorite things all combined into one. *squee* Please do tell when they will be available. :)

As far as the cards, I will have to buy them too. When will they be available?

*jumps up & down*

I am so happy for you that you are getting all this attention.

Hope that you feel better soon as well.

I found some shops already selling the jewelry - I'll post links soon!

I only recently signed the card contract, so I'm guessing it will be a little later on this year =)

Thank you so much!!
