Good morning =) [Aug. 11th, 2003|10:44 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hello everyone!

I've got some assorted errands to run, health food store, etc. today (probably hang out with Matty for awhile before he goes to work!). This afternoon/evening I should be painting up a storm though, and I'll let you know as soon I move my webcam. Of course, since I don't currently have any visitors, you can always watch my webcam while it shows my living room and computers. You may see such fascinating things as me updating my website, Matt cleaning, or Azrael sleeping on the couch =P

Lol, that's Azrael - he thinks he's a parrot and Matt's a pirate. They're off to have high seas adventures =)

He's been jumping up on Matt's shoulder since he was a tiny kitten!

He's sent off some resumes and such to the local real estate offices here, but in the meantime he's still working at Rainforest Cafe. In a few years he'll probably be working for me though (framing, assistant, whatever)! Maybe he'll continue free-lancing in real estate though - I'll have to see!

Hey, that sounds like fun! David keeps dreaming about being my assistant as well - lol - and I need one! So I can only imagine how much you need one =) It would be pretty easy to teach someone else how to frame / package & ship and maybe even list auctions if I tell them what template I want to use - maybe I would just have to do the scanning and photoshop touch-ups myself since you've got to have the "artists eye" for that. But you know, freelancing in real estate sounds like a great 2nd income ;)

I want to go to the rainforest cafe... I've never even heard of it until I heard about it from you two =) It sounds like a fun place to eat.

It is a fun place to eat! We ate at the one back in KC about two dozen times before he even started working there, lol. They have a number of veggie options which is always nice =)

Matt's got many years under his belt already as a framer - he managed a few Michael's (the art store) frameshops for quite a while, and is really quite masterful at it. He loves doing it too, which is a plus! As soon as we get a house we're going to designate one room as a frame shopI'm sure it would take me just a few weeks and I could show him how to scan and optimize my images, make prints, package, ship, do book-keeping, list auctions, etc. I'd probably get twice as much painting done! Right now we only need his income to pay off a bunch of credit cards and some loans he accrued before he met me, so after that's done with I think we'd be fine just having him work for me. Not to mention, if I had twice as much time to paint then I'd probably be selling more work of course, and that would be like a whole other income in itself! And then of course he could do real-estate casually in addition to that (if we needed to) and that would be a great additional source of income (and maybe even a source for investment property or something - that would be a bonus).

I'm just glad I'm lucky enough to have a guy who is interested in my career and is willing to do just about anything to help me with it!

Yay! That all sounds so cool =) I'll let David read your msg, because I think thats exactly what he wanted to do to help me out, and I felt very fortunate as well =) It might have been when I was telling him some of the art sellers on ebay make at least $100 a day, and he said "if you do that, I'll just stay home and be your shipping department!" lol =)

I found out the only rainforest cafe in houston is over on the far west side (im in the south east) in Katy. But its worth a trip when I get around to it =) I'll let you know how it goes!
