Good morning!!!!!! [Sep. 2nd, 2004|10:59 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Another busy day!!

Let me see, I finished that custom painting - I've got just one thing to touch up on it and then it'll be all done >^__^<

We got Matt's PS2 last night, so now he can play FFXI with me! If I get my work done early today I'll try to squeeze some of that in.

Hurricane Frances is on the way, and shows no sign of letting up. We went to SuperTarget last night and everybody was in typical hurricane-frenzy, all of the water, batteries, etc. in town are of course sold out. We bought some diet Vanilla & diet Cherry Cokes, and some wine coolers though, hehe. I'm hoping that we won't lose power or have to worry about water, etc., but I'm still going to prepare just in case. If things move as the meteorologists suggest (like in this map HERE), Frances should be showing up here early on Sunday morning.

Let me see.... I started setting up a gallery at
ArtWanted.comArtWanted.com! You can see my little gallery here:

ArtWanted.comJasmine's ArtWanted Gallery

It's a really cool site, free to sign up (but you can pay for a "Premium Gallery". Kind of like a cross between Elfwood or Epilogue and one of those "Am I Hot or Not" sites, lol. It's for all kinds of art, and people can post comments and vote on a scale of 1-10. You can even sell prints through them! I just stuck a handful of pictures up there and I got in the Top Ten for the day, hehe. I'll stick a bunch more pictures up there when I get some more free time - I've already gotten several hits to my website from people who saw my gallery there. If anybody wants to sign up, ArtWanted.comdo it here and I get a referral credit, ;) It seems like a good source of exposure, and a great way to get instant feedback from viewers.

I'm trying my best to get some of my new products up for sale in my eBay store! I'm scanning in some of the postcards & lightswitch plates right now! On eBay I'm only selling the postcards in sets, not individually (because of the fees), but soon I'll have them on my website too, along with the t-shirts and the lightswitch plates (I think I might put the switchplates up on eBay too though, we'll see.). I'll post here when it's all ready!!

Off to work!

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 Jas,
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,
Jaishi

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! :)

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~~~

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.

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.
