Good morning...er...um...I guess it's afternoon..... [Aug. 10th, 2004|01:36 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hmmm....let me see.....

Pretty typical day so far, got up, did Tae Bo, rode my bike down to the Post Office (Matt's been parking next to it with the day's packages stored in his car, so I don't have to carry a hundred mailing tubes, lol). Went to the bank. Rode back home stopping through Aquila Reserve looking for critters. Usually I see a bunch of deer and wild turkeys, but this time I just saw a million turtles and giant Wood Storks trying to catch fish (they look like dinosaurs!!!!!). It's hotter today than it has been - it's supposed to hit 90. Not so bad though, most of the biking trail is through the shade, and when I go fast it makes a nice breeze =)

I've been working on a portrait commission and I'm almost done! Probably another hour or so and I'll have it finished =)

I finally went ahead and confirmed a big shipment of new merchandise that will be arriving within this week - huzzah! Not everything is in stock at the warehouse yet, but I'll at least have 3 designs of the lightswitch plates, three designs of the black vintage print T-shirts (baby-doll style, S, M & L), and 5 designs of postcards! I'm going to put a new section of my website up for my merchandise, and then I will put a bunch up in my eBay store too. I might keep the shirts just on my website - it would get confusing having all of the sizes and stuff on eBay (I'm an artist, not a department store, lol) and my website has the shopping cart system that will work with that better. I'll probably only sell the postcards in sets (sets of 5 - one of each design) on eBay too, for the sake of fees, but I'll probably offer them individually on my website. It's so strange selling actual STUFF in addition to the usual prints & paintings - a completely different enterprise all together! Storage is a bigger issue, and shipping changes drastically, etc. Very odd. Anyway - I'll update of course when everything is ready for sale!!!

Okay - I'm off to finish that commission!!!!!!!! I'll post later if I end up working on something in front of the webcam ;)

If you have an IKEA nearby they have really great ideas for storage at a good price, That way you can still enjoy your house without the feeling that you are "living at the warehouse" :o)

As soon as they open up the one here I am going to go BUCKWILD!! LOL...I am so tired of tripping over all my kids stuff..LOL...I think the stuff in the toy box is BREEDING...LOL

And as soon as my houseguests leave (Which feels like never..LOL) I will get the room they are using for my studio!!! WAhoooo!!!! Which is great because I have many curious gremlins who like to sneak in my room when I am not looking and squirt the tiny bottles of paint all over. REally they are angels..No I'm not being sarcastic...O_o...

Hehehehe Tell your sister to enjoy her baby while he is little and easy to please..LOL..

YOU MUST GO!!!!!! It's the BEST!!! Everything is so FUN!!!and swedish!..LOL
Most things are flat and you assemble them yourself, so most furniture would fit right in your van (YOu might have to take the seats out of course)
YOu can see the new catalog here:
http://www.ikea-usa.com/ms/en_US/virtual_catalogue/catalog_splash2.html

OF COURSE ...There is much MUCH more at the store..it's HUGE...Cheap kitchen stuff too if you want to redo your kitchen or add cool cabinets (Better than Home depot, I think)

They really should pay me for promoting them!!LOL

hee hee! That's funny that Matt stores the packages in his car so you don't have to carry it to the post office! He's pretty good at problem solving, huh? That was a good idea!
WOW! You are going to have loads of merch!!!

Yep! It works great! That way I don't have to drive, or make multiple trips, or carry anything very far! Eventually I'm just going to start metering the postage at home and set up "pickups" with the mail truck, but for now this is working great!

Thank you!!!

Hehe, well - they are black t-shirts with vintage style printing on them (the soft kind, so it doesn't really have "solid" area to write on) so I probably couldn't autograph the shirts themselves. The lightswitch plates are really cool - I've got my artist's samples and they are nifty!!!

I'll let you know as soon as I've go them up for sale!
