Looks like Frances strengthed with sustatined winds now at 145mph o_O
I've been a member of Art Wanted for a long time, but like EBSQ, Elfwood and Epilogue, its one of those resources I seldom get the time to utilise to my benefit. I can't wait until I can give up my job and do my art full time, its so exhausting these 16 hour days, and I'm spreading myself way to thin at the moment.
Anyhow, It looks great as always Jasmine, and congrats on getting in the top ten-its must be so rewarding to be getting so many accolades, and I think you are on the cusp of great things.
Oh no! I'm sure you'll be fine on Sunday morning though, try not to worry!!
Yeah I know, artwanted.com is great! I heard about it somewhere.....I think it was on Tigerpixie's website a few weeks ago and I've been a member since! Have a look at my galllery! www.artwanted.com/rubyg most of the people on there that rate and leave comments are really nice people. I'm sticking with my free account though! I really really want to join EBSQ, I know you have to pay and everything, but I don't think I'm good enough :(
I GOT INTO COLLEGE! I'm studying art and I was finally told today that I got in and start on the 13th! Whoo! I'm so excited lol!
Yeah ok, this is a bit of a random reply so I'll restrain my fingers from the keyboard now....
Hi Sorrel!!! I didn't know you had an LJ! I'm going to add you to my friends list ok ;)
YAY! Light switch plates! hehe. Thanks for the link to ArtWanted. I'll keep it in mind so when I have more time (and drawings) I can set up an account. I might have to ask you for the referral link again later though. ;) I wantcha to get those credits!
And congrats on getting in the top 10 your first day! That's awesome! And I'm glad it's bringing new people to your website. =)
Your gallery looks great!! :) I even found a minute to leave ya a few comments ;) Thanks for mine.
Yep! Hurricane Frances is on the way!!! I'm glad you guys are prepared. At the moment we are just barely out of the projected path but will still get a lot of wind and rain :P Stay safe! :)
frances is a big pain in the rear! I went to publix today to buy some milk for zoe , the parking lot was full, and the people in the store had ALL LOST THERE MINDS!
Some old women in those little motorized chairs nearly ran over justin's foot o_- ( my 10 year old son )
anyway I was looking back on http://tbo.com/
they have a bunch of pictures of people going nut's over the storm, I won't be going out anymore, I thank to public at large is more of a danger then frances is right now :p
Lol, I think you are right about that - people are nuts!!!!
I'm staying inside!!!!!!
I'll say a little prayer for you and Matt for safety during the storm.
I haven't had a chance to look through all of your latest art work but what I have seen has absolutely blown me away!!! Just when I think it can't any better, it does. I love your recent works (as well as your older work, lol)!! I'm going to have to make it a point to sit down and go through your eBay and order some prints.
At anyrate, stay safe and ttys,
Thank you Jaishi!!!!! ((HUGS))
We have our house hooked up to a Generator, So if the power goes out it will run everything Except the A/C Units(they are too big to run)..Being so hot here you would DIE if you didnt have at least some fans Blowing on you!!!...I also have a waterdistiller that holds like 15 gallons..so I will have water no problem..(Nooo we dont lose power here alot..Not at allllll..LoL) We have these fabulous things called "rolling black outs" during peak hours in the summer..supposedly to Stop the power things from over loading...PErsonally I think it's because they are sadistic. :o)
I am really hoping that things will be ok and that you will be safe.
Why can't you fill up a water tank (the type you take on camping trips) with tap water. Is the tap water in Florida ok to drink or do you have to drink bottled water?
Oh - our tap water is great!!! We have a filter set up on our refrigerator which makes it taste even better. I'll definitely fill up a bunch of containers. People just worry since if there is flooding or watermain breakage from the hurricane than the water system may get contaminated (that happened in a lot of areas with the last hurricane) and become undrinkable. And if it's contaminated they will put out a "boil order" which means that you need to boil the water first to be safe, but since a lot of people might lose their power and heat, they don't have a way to boil the water, hehe.
People just freak out and think they have to stock up on everything!
Jas, you can fill up empty milk jugs or even 2 liter soda bottles with water. You might even want to freeze some. That way if you lose power the ones in the freezer will keep the food colder quite a bit longer.
Last year after our hit by Isabel, our water was said to be contaminated for about 2 days. I was happy I had some clean water stored for us and the animals. Also, as the frozen ones thawed... we actually had cold water to drink! Amazing the things that we appreciate once it is gone. LOL
After 11 days without power, I decided I really hate Hurricanes! :)

lol...you went without power for 11 days? Try going for 3 months. But that wasn't from a hurricane, it was from a huge eletrical bill!!! I suppouse a hurricane is worse.
man. people around here do mad raids upon grocery stores if there's even a *hint* of snow or ice in the weather...i can't imagine how they'd react to a hurricane. o_O
Hiya! I've been eyeing "Art Wanted" since it's circulated here around LJ now and again... so I took this opportunity to sign up under you! :-)
I'll set it all up later...
Hugs, and ~~~Hurricane Survival Vibes~~~
Awesome! Let me know when you have a gallery and I'll drop by!
Thanks for the message at my artwanted.com gallery!
I didn't know you were there either.
I am just there on a the free gallery, no need to pay to sumbit my work, I only have 5 good ones anyway! LOL
I love your gallery, and I am sure you will easily make the top 10 artists aswell. It's not that hard if you promote the gallery for a few days :-)
Hope to see more of your art there soon.
Thank you Lindy!!! I'll probably post more soon, assuming the hurricane doesn't knock out my internet, hehe.

Oh no...after the hurricane is over it is going to rain forever her! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Evil rain!
Hey Jas, I have a question. I Joined up with Artwanted.com as well. It looked like a really cool site and I like the idea of the comments, exposure and art rating!
Anyway my question is.. or questions rather.. Every time I go to the site to my account I get an automatic email from them always saying the same junk? Do you get that too?
Also I singed up for a paid account the yearly one and I haven’t gotten any email notices yet that I had paid. Did it take a bit for them to change the status of your account.. That’s about it really he he...It seems the sight it slow sometimes, maybe they are having difficulties and that’s why I’m getting the emails over and over.
Iv been keeping an eye out on hurricane Francis, They are really working it up! I hope that you guys don’t get to hard. Are you guys more inland closer to the main part of the continent? BTW.. have you see the shot of it taken from space?? amazing I don’t know if people really get an idea of how enormous it actually is!
I just signed up with them last night - it took about 10 hours for them to process my paid account and upgrade it. How long ago did you sign up? I haven't gotten any strange emails from them.... if it keeps up you might want to email their support, or post a message on their message boards to see if somebody else is experiencing the same issues!
We're smack dab in the middle of Florida - about halfway down from top to bottom, and about 50 miles from the coasts on either side. (Florida's only about 100 miles wide!!!). So we won't get the "storm surge" (the actual waves of ocean coming over us). We will get the big crazy tree-uprooting boat-throwing roof-snatching winds though. Everybody on the coasts are evacuating, and they're all coming here - it's crazy.
