* Website Updated! * New Prints! * "The Art of Faery" Orders Being Taken! * [Oct. 8th, 2003|01:25 am]

Ahhhh - I am so relieved. Everything on my website is finished, and I love how it looks now!

After days of hard labour ;) I have updated http://www.strangeling.com with many new prints! I have re-arranged the gallery as well, dividing it into categories (Fairy Art, Gothic Art, Alice in Wonderland Art, etc.) which makes it much easier to navigate. I've updated nearly every section of the whole site, so if you haven't dropped by for awhile, check it out! Many of my more recent paintings are now available as prints!

In addition - I have received the OK from my US distributor to begin taking orders for "The Art of Faery"! You may place orders directly on my site for signed copies! Just click here: http://www.strangeling.com/artoffaery.html for details. The book is $24.99 and I would be happy to personalize it with a message upon request. It should be in most US bookstores in about two weeks, and is currently available for pre-order at most online booksellers. If you have already ordered it from Amazon.com or would prefer to purchase it from your local bookstore but would still like it autographed, I would be happy to sign or personalize your copy - just email me for instructions. Please note - the book is still in early phases of distribution, so orders placed will be subject to a 1-2 week delay. Let me know if anybody has questions!

MOM:(duckycat) - I sent you one of my early advance copies, so you should get that in the mail soon ;)

SISTERS: (sunkachina and kenderdrache) I'll have copies for you guys shortly, so don't buy any!

OK - I'd love feedback about the new website layout - please let me know if there are any incorrect links, page errors, mistakes, or whatever!

I'm going to bed, I'm soooo exhausted. Tomorrow I will happily be back to painting, and doing some sketches for a Vampire commission!!!! Good night!!!

YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ordered me one!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wouldn't be at all opposed to a little doodle in it... if you felt so inclined...
I can't wait til it gets here!! YAY!!!!!!!!

I looked over your website (but briefly!) and on the FAQ's I read this... Where can I see more of your art online? A: I have a gallery at Epilogue and a gallery at Elfwood! No mention of EBSQ?

It's looking great! Congrats!!!!

The site looks wonderful, Jasmine! I really like how you re-arranged the gallery, dividing the prints into categories - it's a lot easier to find certain prints now! Speaking of which, I didn't realize there were soooooooo many I wanted to get! :D

Good luck with the book too! I hope you sell a bunch and it brings you many more new fans! :D

Re: jade fairy

Hi Michelle!!!! I still have her available as a print - you can buy her from me directly (just drop me an email at Jasminetoad@aol.com ). She was a small painting, so she's only available in the 8"x10" size ($13.99 - add $1.50 for Regular Mail, $3.90 for Priority).

I've just had to clear out some of my older pieces to make room for all the new ones! Someday I'll set up an "archive" site of my older work, but now I'm just sooo burned out on updating right now, lol!

Site looks great Jasmine. I love how it looks. I need to spend some time doing mine, but I just don't seem to get enough time in one day!!! I want to ask you something, I like how you can see your auctions on eBay on your site. How did you do that? I think it's a great idea!!! CHEERS - Keely

Hi Keely!!! Thank you!

Ah - you need to have an eBay-store for it to work. That's one of the reasons I first got an eBay-store - so I could use the html generator to frame it in my website ;)

YAY I have an ebay store!!! So whats the next step? Sorry for bothering you on such a dull topic. I just loved they way it looked. And it may inspire me to get to work on my site (which I do try to update every week)

SOMEWHERE on eBay's website is an html generator that gives you the html tags to insert your store in your website *$#_!&@ I can't seem to find it now - I lifted my html about a year ago, and I haven't had to look for it since then.

My script for example - of course you'll need to substitute the "(" brackets with the "<" brackets, so the html will actually work (I just used the () brackets to it would show the script text instead of showing my store!)! is:

(script src="http://syndicate.ebay.com/ebayshop/ebayshop.dll?GetSellerList&uid=strangeling&fontsize=2&numofitems=50 &billpoint=1 &highlight=1&fontface=verdana&sortby=price&sortdir=desc&siteid=0&depid=all")(/script)

Maybe if you substitute your eBay name for strangeling, it will work! Otherwise, I would scour the eBay help system, which has grown very confusing.....

Galleries

The new gallery format looks absolutely beautiful! The prints flow much better now that they have their own themed galleries! You did an excellent job:)

I also liked that you added links to Epilogue, Elfwood, and EBSQ. It was a treat to see the Faery Woods and the Priestess of Thoth, three images I hadn't seen before!

Congratulations! You did a faery outstanding job!!:)
