Icons Up For Grabs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't sleep, so I made a bunch of icons from my artwork! ANYBODY is welcome to take any of these to use for LiveJournal Icons!!!! These are just simple cropped paintings of mine, no fancy animations or anything. Sometime soon I'll make some neat animated ones for you all =) Again - feel free to use any of these, all I ask is that in the icon keywords you please write "Copyright Jasmine Becket-Griffith".

Click Here for the Icons! (be patient, there are almost 50 images!).

Instructions for settin up a LiveJournal Icon
*Choose which picture you like! Right-click the mouse on the picture, and go to "Save Picture As" and save the picture on your hard drive (remember to pay attention where you saved it, and what you named it!).
*Go to www.livejournal.com (make sure that you are logged in!!!)
*At the top of the LiveJournal homepage go to "Manage" and click on "User Pictures"
*Scroll down to "Upload a New Picture"
* Select the "from file" button and click "Browse".
*Browse through your hard drive and find the file that you saved, select it and click "Open"
*Click "Proceed"
*On that page it will show your icon. If you don't mind, please type "copyright Jasmine Becket-Griffith" where it says "Keywords" next to the icon and then click the button that says "Save Settings"
*Enjoy!

Craziness!

Too much craziness! I keep looking around my apartment, knowing I'm going to be moving tomorrow. I have had sooo many happy memories here, even though I've only lived here for about 10 months. There is so much I have to do! o_O

I have a HUGE amount of prints, books and paintings to send out too, which I need to send out tomorrow. And two commissions to finish. And this big painting I'm working on now to finish. And almost 150 unread email (and that's not including LiveJournal and spam!! Please bear with me if you've emailed me recently!). And a website to update. And still more places I need to update my new address with. Help! ::screams::

But - at least the weather forecast isn't calling for rain - I HATE moving in the rain!!!! It's supposed to be sunny and 70s, which sounds great for moving.

Right now though, I think I'd better tackle things one at a time. I want to first finish this Masquerade painting, so I can list it tonight on eBay.

Man, moving can be stressful, but I know I'll be so much happier once I get settled in, and have so much more room, etc. I'll try to take lots of breaks and stuff to try to relieve the stress, etc.

But now, I'm painting! You can watch my webcam here!

Busy night!

It's the night before the big move - things are so very hectic around here!!!!!

I still managed to finish a new painting, and I've listed it up on eBay. I LOVE how it turned out - the colours are much more brilliant in real life, and it's HUGE (well, 20"x16", which is huge for me, hehe) and I love it!!!!!!!

Here it is:

"Mardi Gras Masquerade"

Enjoy!!!

I might be absent from LiveJournal/email/etc. for the next day or two - there will probably be a time when our internet isn't hooked up yet at either place, and of course my computer will probably be disconnected for a bit. I'll update when I have everything set up again!! Wish me luck!! >^_^
