mailing list headaches....

So I spent all day Sunday, Monday, and now all of today so far working on the mailing list. Almost 50 hours so far into this project, I can't believe it. It's very boring, lol, but needs to be done! At least I get to sit on the couch with Azrael while I do it =) Who would have thought that deleting commas, spaces, copying & pasting would take so long?

Hopefully in the next 24 hours those of you on the mailing list will receive an email (from JasmineToad@aol.com) from BraveNet that says something about confirming your subscription. It will have a link in the email that you will need to click (or copy&paste into your browser's URL field) in order to confirm the subscription and receive future mailing list updates.

I was also looking through previous mailing list updates and realized that so far in 2006 (including mini paintings & commissions) I have painted one hundred and thirty-six paintings. I can't believe it! I'll probably hit 200 paintings this year before the year is out.

That is, if I can get through all the boring stuff like setting up a mailing list, lol. Argh.

Just thought I'd check in to let you know what I've been up to. Assuming I'm not too cross-eyed by typing on the computer too much, I should be painting tomorrow! ;P

Important

Hey everybody-

It seems that some unscrupulous person may be contacting the "runner up" bidders on some of my painting auctions, pretending to be me and offering a fake "second chance" at the paintings. (Trying to scam the other bidders out of money).

This is illegal and certainly against eBay policy.

If you get a message to that effect, it is NOT from me. All my recent painting auctions are already paid & sent, lol - no runner-ups, I have not had to use eBay's second chance offer. If you get an email like that, it is not from me.

Please forward any letters like this to my JasmineToad@aol.com email address (the ONLY email address I use) and I can send the info to the good folks at eBay to get it tracked down and taken care of immediately.
