I love the slight worried look on the little blonde girl! She's older and probably has a pretty good idea of what's inside. :D
I'm glad that Matt got everything he wanted! Please wish him a Happy Belated Birthday from me! *^_^*
Thank you Jasmine!
Awesome regarding the Wii! Where did you guys manage to find controllers?
Toys 'R' Us out by the Florida Mall - we grabbed the last ones!
Awe, I love Santa Frog. This is far too cute, sweetie!! =)
Love it! That frog is so adorable! I love Christmas time!
Thank you Candace!!
Me too =)
Very nice Jasmine. I was wondering if you could offer advice as to how to get started doing art as a business. I am an artist, pretty good I think and I just don't know where to start. I do pen/ink, tattoos and watercolor pencil work. Help me if you don't mind.
Gosh, well - I didn't really start with any kind of plan - my "hobby" as a teenager slowly grew into a career by the time I was an adult.
The number one thing I can suggest is GET A WEBSITE! If you don't have one already, get one. Even if it is just your email address and a sampler of your pictures, get something online. The vast majority of the success I've had, the companies & publishers that have contacted me, the licensors I work with, etc. has all been through my website - it has been quite an asset!
Other things - if it is fantasy/scifi/etc. related - you might try putting up at gallery at Elfwood - http://www.elfwood.com
and at Epilogue - http://www.epilogue.net
- great online galleries, free to set up - good exposure (Epilogue especially, I've gotten a lot of customers and business contacts who have found me through there).
A very determined attitude is important too. It can be tough doing art for a living. It took me a few years of painting at night and working at restaurants during the day before I was able to support myself & my husband fully with my art. It took a year before I even got one sale from my website, lol. So patience is key.
Getting a decent scanner is important too - and some basic image editing programs as well so that you can put your pictures online, very important! Feel free to ask if you ever have questions, I try to help when I can.
Thanks so much! I will keep you posted on my progress!
Cute as always.
It seems that Nintendo is totally hip again!!!
I have the Nintendo DS , like Delphine. The games are so fun and adictive, aren't they?
Mario Kart is awsome. I can play it for a whole hour and think its been only 15 mins.
Nintendo is awesome!!
Hehe, I like Mario Kart as well - I'm hoping they'll come out with a new version to go with the Nintendo Wii...
Awww! That is too cute!!! :D Congrats on the Wii (don't get hurt playign with it) Have you seen the videos of people that cut their hands on ceiling fan lights and people that threw the remotes at their tvs! O_o Crazy stuff!!
Thank you Carrie!
LOL - yeah, we are MUCH more careful than other people seem to be with their Wii-Remotes! I always make sure the way is clear, and that Azrael isn't underfoot, lol.
Oh, I really want to play Super Monkey Ball on the Wii!!! That game is so much fun to begin with, I can imagine it's such a blast on the Wii :D
It is AWESOME! It's the new "Super Monkey Ball Banana Blast" - it has like 60 of the mini/party games, which rock!
I love the Christmas Frog and his little helpers, too! Yay for Matt getting his Wii, I hope you both have lots of fun with it!
Thank you Becca! Thank you also for the Christmas Card!!!!!!
Nunchuk attachments--heh heh!! OF COURSE Matt needed THAT! HA!
I wanna play with one!! They sound fun! I want to do the bowling. That would be COOOL!
LOL - totally!
Bowling is awesome, it feels like I'm really bowling!
I really like this one... Frogs are my absolute favorite animal, and i have come to love all your froggie pictures. Someday, hopefully I can obtain one of your original pieces. :)
Happy Holidays and keep up the great painting.
Thank you so much!!
Hehe, I love your icon!

ohhh! I've been trying to find a Wii by keeping track online where they have those global trackers (whatever they are called! ;P) and they show how many are in stock or if they are out of it, but I don't think they are accurate... that or people are using the same site! ahhhh. Still hunting them down. I think I have to do that too and wait at 3am to catch them.
Can you guys tell me (when you get the chance to play it more) whether the wireless seems to work pretty good or if it's a little tricky?
Oh! The wireless controls seem to work REALLY well - very intuitive and easy to use!
That literally made me 'bwaha' out loud. SO CUTE. That's awesome, awesome, awesome Jasmine!
So jelous of the wii. Play a round of Monkey Ball in my honor ^__^
Thank you Tamara!! >^__^<
How cute!!! I totally giggled at this one!!! ^^
They look soo saaaad! aw
