I got up early today, and we've been running errands, buying presents, shopping, etc. all day. Man - I am already tired, lol. So busy! We also hit Best Buy (Matt had a gift certificate there he got for his birthday) and he got some video game stuff, and we went to Michael's and I bought some new brushes, canvases, etc. I also got some new black Prismacolours for a new commissioned drawing. Hehe, Michael's was kind of crazy - full of of soccer moms looking for artificial snow, that sort of thing, and very crowded. Every time I go there, they move the display that sells my brushes (Royal Golden Taklon, with the clear handles and finger grips) to a completely different part of the store (for some reason they are nowhere near the other types of brushes) and it drives me nuts! This time they were stuck among the Nativity scenes, inexplicitly enough. Last time they were in the Bridal section. Argh - what a boring post this is!|
We're getting ready for my mom to come and stay with us this week (she's flying in on Tuesday) so that will be fun! I probably won't get as much painting in as I typically do, but I'll still squeeze some in. This afternoon/tonight I'm going to be listing some SALE auctions for my prints on eBay! I have a couple of commissions to work on, and I'd like to maybe get a couple of small originals up on eBay before my mom comes down too, so I'll be busy doing that kind of thing for the next day and a half. The commissioned drawing I'm doing will be off-camera (at the customer's request, as it is a portrait), so you won't get to watch me, hehe. When I will be painting on-camera I'll post here to update =)
LOL! That has GOT to be annoying about the brushes. I mean, that makes absolutely ZERO sense. Why would they move the display all the time? To piss off their customers? Seems rather silly.
Blogging in the public eye is weird. It's 'my' journal as much as my paper journal is- and yet I sometimes feel 'Damn, that's too boring to say.' And it usually is something I would never put down in my paper journal-because it is mundane. Yet on here, I'll say it, and have realizations of boring personal details. And lj-cut functions as much for this as for brevity, I think.
Have fun with your Mom, Jasmine ! Yet another excuse to go to Epcott and Disney and the vegetarian resteraunt :-)
steps up on stool and breaks out the disco ball and microphone-up comes lights on a funny little girl dressed in purple-
"music mistro"----(to the beat of pussy cat)
In a strong imitation of a Tom Jones voice-
"Whats new pussy cat whooaaa-ohwhooaa,
what's new pussy cat whoaa-oowhoaa."
*finishes up crazy song and steps back off stool as light fades out*
Just felt like giving a little performance to geek everyone out a little. :)-SMILE EVERYONE
Any excuse to go to Disney? ;)
Totally off topic...one of these days, foxmagic
really does need to introduce us! I live so close! And as much as I love the foxie, I would like some other local friends. ;)
Indeed! Sounds like fun to me! Brian was just telling me that I needed to meet you!
Well, if he does have a party, and we both can go, problem solved!
