Good evening!!! [Feb. 22nd, 2004|08:44 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Aaaah! Crazy day!!!!

We're a little more set-up in our new home! We still haven't moved any of our bedroom stuff yet from our old apartment, lol, but we still have another week to get to that as needed. Our living room is pretty well situated now, our computers on their desks, etc.

We did get quite a lot done today, there's just quite a lot to do. I keep sitting down at the computer and getting sidetracked too, lol, which probably doesn't help, hehe. I have great masses of email I'm trying to sort though - eek!!! We moved my art desk over here, but all of my stuff is still boxed up so I need to dig all of that out and sort it.

Since we have sooo much more room here, we stopped at Office Max and bought some office furniture to outfit my new art/business area. FINALLY I have a filing cabinet - a nice wooden one. I've been keeping all of my receipts and records shoved in drawers and crappy expandable files, etc. and it was getting insane. I was getting overwhelmed trying to get it all in line for income taxes!!!! Now I'll be much more organized! We also bought a great little piece of furniture (that matches the filing cabinet) with cubby holes for inbox-outbox type stuff, cupboards to keep supplies in, etc. There's just so much room in our new townhome - it's perfect for integrating my home with my art/business. Since we are the type of silly people who just eat on the couch and there's just two of us, we decided not to set up the dining room area as a traditional "dining room" - rather we're using it as my office/studio, which is wonderful. The spare bedroom is being delegated as a shipping/framing/matting room (after we buy a nice framing/matting setup with tools and tables, etc. for Matt to work for me!!), and we're going to outfit it with a nice futon and stuff so it can also serve as a guest suite for our many visitors =)

I'll probably get my painting stuff ready to go for tomorrow! I have one commission I need to finish, and I need to touch up wobblesnorts's commission, and I'll be working on many new pieces for eBay!!! I'll also be starting a new print sale tomorrow or the next day with some of my more recent paintings on sale as prints!

We're going to go grab some dinner now, and then jump back into the saga of furniture and email, lol. I'll post here if I get my painting stuff setup tomorrow!!! Goodnight, everyone!

Hey! I JUST today bought a wooden file cabinet, lol. I too have been using random drawers and accordian folders as I call them to shove my reciepts, etc.. into them. So I'm FILING right now, lol. And having way too much fun!

I AM SO freakin jealous of ALL that room! Hehe, I want a townhouse!
And look at all of that room you'll have for ART! TOO cool! You better take pics!

LOL, have fun with your Saga =\... Sounds like fun ;)

Wow, that all sounds so great! I can tell that it will be good for you to have all that space that is specifically for your art! I bet it will inspire you too!!

everybody's moving into big places. The scary part for me-I thought-I will never have enough stuff to fill up my apartment, what amazes me now is that i was able to fit an apartment into the size of a dormroom. sickening isn't it. i just wish i had the time to clean it all up, but i am going to take a day off work this week for just that.

Look I stole an icon from delphine-i think it looks a little like the one you made me too-but that is prolly because i look like anything with blond hair and blue eyes and chubby cheeks.

Re:

Hehe - we moved from a one-room studio to our first apartment in Celebration - it took us forever to fill it up enough to get rid of the "empty" feeling, hehe! And now we're moving from there, into here which is literally twice as big, lol - now I'm going to try to fill it up!!!

Oooh! I love that painting!!! Oh yes - she really does kind of look like you!!!!!!

Re:

Yep yep-filling up a place can be fun. With all that you want to do with your art business though I am sure that you will fill it quite quickly. And you could always buy a big plane to fill up an empty corner. and if you get really hungry and there is not food in the house-you could always eat said plant.

Yep pretty painting..I like everyone's art so much, if I was able to buy all that I liked-I think my walls would not be able to support the weight - so it is good that I must have spending limits.

Matt's a couch eater. I'm a floor eater. I don't think we'll ever have a dining room!

My family is the same way, we never eat at the table, we're absolute infront of the tv and on the couch dinner eaters lol.

I hope you take pictures of the new place!! I wanna see the new digs. =D
