Back to work!!! [Apr. 20th, 2004|06:05 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
We had a wonderful time with my family!!!!!! Kachina, little Theodore, my mother and her boyfriend Bill all came down for the week. We went to Epcot, the Magic Kingdom, the Animal Kingdom, Islands of Adventure, etc. etc. etc. Mom & Bill went off to the beaches on both coasts (Cocoa beach and the Gulf), and had fun too. We took Kachina & little Theo down to the Garden Cafe and out to Winter Park, and had all sorts of fun!

Theodore is such a sweet baby. He is so incredibly well-behaved; he never even really cried in public the whole time (although he got a little fussy during the Country Bear's Jamboree, but nothing noisy!). I can't believe how incredibly inobtrusive he was - not really interfering with any plans, park-going, restauranting, etc. It's almost like having a little doll or stuffed animal around (and he was even teething, it was amazing, hehe!).

I'll post a couple of photos of him a little later!

Oh my, now I've got to get back into "work mode" and get down to some serious painting! I actually started Gothling #5 the other day, and I'm getting ready to do some more work on her - you can watch me HERE!!!!!

Oooh! I also got my first merchandise samples in the mail today! This is for my stickers!!! Gorgeous, gorgeous stickers - highest quality, in fact, that I've ever seen!!! In addition to being distributed and sold in retail shops across the country, I will also be selling them on my website, eBay store, etc. I'll update with more info when I get all of that stuff together! =) I'll take some pictures of the stickers too - they are big, like 5 inches across, on clear plastic - so darned cool! I'd totally buy them if I saw them, lol, which I guess is a good sign ;)

Now, I realize I have a LOT of email that has piled up during my break, but don't worry - I will be getting to that all very soon. First I need to do some painting though! I'd like to finish up this Gothling and then finish the commissioned portrait I've been working on, and then another commissioned piece, and some other originals too =)

Oh yes - and the mysterious meetings with important people are going well too, I'll have more info there soon (NO, it's not at all art-related, just personal stuff!).

Off to work! I am sorry that I have been so very absent on LiveJournal - I scrolled through page after page after page trying to catch up, lol, but please bear with me if it takes me a moment to get back into the swing of things ;)

Awww!!! My pictures look so cute in her room!!!!! It makes me happy to see them on display and being appreciated =)

Oooh! I LOVE Disneyland! I've been there SO many times!!!!! Disneyland, California is my favourite of the individual Disney Parks. Disney World is of course cool because it has four parks (Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and the Magic Kingdom), but Disneyland, CA is my favourite of them all!!!! It's MUCH larger than the Magic Kingdom park here in Disney World (we don't have a lot of the rides - no Indiana Jones, no Mr. Toad - hmph!!!).

Have FUN!!!

Re: JASMINE BACK!!!! =^_^=

Thank you!!!!!!!!

How funny!!!! A lot of people have been telling me similar things about my Gothlings - one girl told me that it reminded her of she and her sisters, with each of their favourite colours, and another lady told me that she had three daughters and she thought that they corresponded to the different Gothlings, etc. How neat!!
