Email attack!!!!!!! [Jun. 18th, 2004|07:51 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I've been answering email all day since I woke up. Holy COW that was a lot of email. But now I'm down to low double digits in my email box - that's hardly happened since I first got that email account six years ago.....

I feel so accomplished!

And bored =P

At least Matt & I took a break and went out to dinner - I had received a $100 gift certificate at Cafe D'Antonio's from my real estate agent (for my birthday!). I had some eggplant ravioli and a walnut/arugula salad - very tasty. We have plenty of $$ left on the gift certificate so we can go back sometime again at least once! I love gift certificates to restaurants - it's fun to go out and not feel silly about overspending!

Now I'm back home and I'll probably work on some sketches or maybe start a new painting. I finished that big commission, and now the next client on my waiting list is commissioning FOUR paintings from me! Lots of custom painting going on here! Which is good, since I haven't been able to do as much artwork over the past few weeks, what with the move and being out of town, etc. (not to mention I just spent a small fortune on real estate, lol).

Also this next week I'll be working on three illustrations for an Aesop's Fables book - "The Fox and the Monkey", "The Crab and the Fox", and "The Widow and her Little Maidens".

I'm also going to work on a couple of new fairytales - "Thumbelina" and "Cinderella". And probably a bunch of other paintings too =P

Well, off to work!

Thumbelina! One of my favourites! Can't wait to see what you come up with! :)

That was nice of your real estate agent to give you a $100 gift certificate for my birthday! And you have money left over to go again!

Hey Jasmine are you going to be putting in anything on the epilogue contest Masters of Fantasy? I am trying to decide if I should-with all that awesome didgital art they have on Epilogue I don't think I'd have a fighting chance with my acrylics!LOL! Are you still in Florida? My mother in law is trying to get us to move down there when she does. Your garden is very pretty makes me think Florida sounds nice! That and I have a horrible fear of Tornados and we seem to be getting an endless amount of severe weather here in the midwest, and I don't think they have those in Florida so it sounds great!

Lol - no kidding about Tornadoes! I'm from Kansas City, and whenever I visit back "home" there seems to be tornado sirens blaring.....

Yep! I'm here in Celebration, Florida - I love it here!

I think I probably will submit to Epilogue's Masters of Fantasy - there needs to be more "traditional media" in there - that is, if I can remember to do it before the deadline....

I forgot you were from Kansas-Sheesh you sure are lucky you moved! LOL! I think they need more traditional media in there as well, but maybe it's because none of us Traditional artists never have time to list our stuff(takes to long to paint it)LOL! I know I haven't gotten a chance yet either! See ya chicky doo!

Man, I am happy that I moved!!! I'm a lot happier down here!

(Kansas City's actually in Missouri though, contrary to popular belief- but very close to Kansas!).

the small fortune spent on real estate will always be a good investment. and buying is smart financial sense :-).
