I'm back! [Jul. 18th, 2006|11:11 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
And apparently in the hecticness of packing & preparing to go, I completely forgot to make a post here at LiveJournal letting you all know that I was gone!

Thank you to those of you making sure I was okay, hehe - I didn't disappear - I was just in Illinois at a family reunion =) I'm back home now safe & sound, and ready to get back to work!

We had fun at Cousin Camp - Matt stayed here in Florida to keep up with orders & shipping, so I flew to Kansas City by myself and went with my sister Kachina, her kids Eleanor & Theodore, my sister Amber & her husband Chris, and my mom & Bill. It was really HOT in Illinois but we still had fun at the campground and chatting with distant relatives, etc.

I had forgotten what HOT weather can be like! It was 20 degrees hotter there than it was here in Florida, lol.

I have a lot of art to work on! New originals, commissions, stuff for Dragon*Con, etc. I'm going to be so busy, but at least it is what I enjoy doing. I sold the original "A Little Shy" painting through my website while I was gone, so now I don't have any originals for my eBay store/website (other than auctions of course) so I need to get some posted up there soon too.

All right - I'm off to paint...something... not sure what yet. I also need to work on some new canvas prints.

Whatever I work on, you can always peek in on my art desk HERE ON MY WEBCAM!

glad you all had a good time. florida has its days too but you prolly dont spend alot of time in the heat of the day running around outside. and i am sure most of florida is airconditioned.

It does get hot here, but it never has gotten over 100 here. Our highs are mostly upper 80s through mid 90s in the summer. In the midwest they'll get 100-110 which is just nuts!

Very true - the AC helps a LOT. We're going to put in some ceiling fans in too - I like having the windows open and ceiling fans make it possible, hehe.

Hi!! *waves*

I was wondering where you have gotten too (I always worry about the people on my friends lists if they don't post for 3 days!!)
Hope you hada great time.

Are you saying Florida is cool right now? *hops on the plane and flies over*
Its so hot here we have been advised not to take our pets for walks cos the streets are too hot to walk on.

Hehe, well not exactly cool - mid 80s, but up in Illinois it was low 100s, so it's relatively cool!
