Happy Birthday Kachina! [May. 19th, 2003|10:11 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
It's Kachina's 23rd birthday today! Now starts the time of year when we're both the same age for a little while, hehe (we're less than a year apart). I'm going to try and call her later! Amber tells me that her presents arrived - yay!

So, early early this morning I finished "Hansel & Gretel find the Cottage"! I love how it turned out - I haven't painted a little boy for a long time (other than in commissioned realistic portraits), and wouldn't you know, he looks kinda like Matty =) I'll be posting it up on eBay tonight!

I was thinking about posting a custom painting commission opportunity on eBay (I used to do that all the time, but I haven't for over a year), but then I realized it might interfere with other commissions I've got lined up. Instead I'm going to be posting a "customized" painting! What I'll do is post an unfinished faerie-girl - not very much coloured in, wings blank, etc. and I'll let the highest bidder tell me how to finish her. I think it sounds like fun!!!

That is a really clever idea Jasmine! I think you'll have a LOT of fun with that as will the highest bidder =).

Wow, you are really lucky that you are so close in age with your sisters. I have a little brother but we just now started getting along. My sister is eleven years older than me and has an entire family of her own.

Tell Kachina to have a Happy Birthday!!! That sucks that you are so far away from her =( When is your birthday by the way?

My other sister (Amber) is just one year younger than Kachina - so we're all very close!

My birthday is the fourth of June =) Luckily, Kachina's going to be staying with us for a couple of weeks very soon (Matt and I are going to Kansas City in about a week and we will stay there for several days for Amber's wedding, and then when we drive back home Kachina is coming with us!) so she'll be with me on my birthday. Next Thursday (while were back in KC) my family is having a party for me too =)

Re:

That's awesome! I bet you are happy that Kachina will be with you for your birthday! Its good that you are so close to your family! A lot of people out there are just not, me included =(. I'm working on it though. My family is quite difficult to get along with most of the time. It is slowly getting better though. One day they will all accept me for who I am... hopefully...

I've thought about doing that before too. ( Great minds think alike ) Just inking in the cat and background and letting the winner pick all the colors. I know it will be a great auction for you. I'll be watching for Hansel & Gretel tonight :)
