Training Matty, NEW Sale prints, etc....... [Oct. 4th, 2004|08:29 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

I've been working with Matt all day, training him on how to process orders, keep track of eBay stuff, customer records, and even how to do basic listings, print/store auctions, etc. He's doing very well - I think I'll have him working smoothly in no time =) So, I didn't get any painting done, but I got a TON of training done with Matt, which is invaluable.

LiveJournal is being a bastard! It ATE one of my entire posts! I had posted yesterday about my visit to the Celebration Arts & Crafts festival =P I received all of the comments though, lol - but I couldn't reply to them. I don't think there were any pressing questions on there, but if they were just ask me again (don't think I'm ignoring them, lol!). Hopefully this post will stay right here where it should be! Grrrr......

Among other things, I showed Matt how to do my print listings on eBay - he did a couple of them all by himself even (well, I was watching over his shoulder, hehe). SO, I have a BUNCH of great print sales this week!!!! I even have my newest Halloween painting - ( "Halloween Night") available as one of this week's SALE prints. Now, I don't typically offer prints of paintings that are currently up for auction, but since it's a holiday-themed piece I really wanted to make sure that prints would be available with plenty of time to ship before Halloween, so here we go:

"Halloween Night" 8"x10" & "Halloween Night" 12"x16"

I have a couple of my other recent paintings up as new SALE prints as well:

"By Starlight" 8"x10" & "By Starlight" 12"x16"

and "Fairy Oracle?" 8"x10" & "Fairy Oracle" 12"x16"

And also due to popular request, I have decided to occasionally offer some of my older prints up as SALE auctions (ones that have never been offered on eBay yet!) from time to time. Some of you may not be as familiar with some of these older pieces, but they are very beautiful! So for this week we have:

"Nymph of the Dying Leaves" 8"x10" & "Nymph of the Dying Leaves" 12"x16"

and "Fairy by Moonlight" 8"x10" & "Fairy by Moonlight" 12"x16"

And of course, you can see all of my new sale prints together HERE!!!

Okay, off to cook some dinner! I'm so happy that Matt seems to be picking up on all of this so quickly. It will be so nice not to have to worry about so much all of the time. It will also probably double the amount of time I get to spend painting, which will make me incredibly happy!

How did I miss "Halloween Night"? Did you mention it in last night's post? Adorable!! I should be doing only Halloween themes right now, but I've been distracted by other things. We only have three weeks of it left!!

I was just curious how it works as far as you both having an income if he works for you? I am very dumb when it comes to self employed kind of stuff. Ok business stuff. I am sure it is wonderful to be able to see each other more now that you work together.

Jasmine was making enough to support us both, she was getting too busy and needed an assistant. She asked me if I would come work with her at home. I said "of course". Thanks for being so thoughtful, but I kinda have this feeling that we're gonna be fine ;)

That Oracle piece is so cute!

Darn that LJ! I think I responded to one of your posts and it ate it up too because it disappeared!

I looooooove your new Halloween painting, the pumpkin's illumination is so beautiful! And congrats on your new assistant! I'm sure it's going to take a lot of stress off you, and I know you'll both enjoy getting to spend more time together! And I wanted to thank you very much for the comments you made on my paintings the other night. They couldn't have come at a better time, and they mean a lot :) Hope you and Alex and Carrie have a wonderful time next week! I look forward to seeing some pics!

Lj was being annoying with me too! For some reason, every time I try to comment it takes AGES to do it even though we have Broadband and the other week in Misty's lj I ended up accidently posting a comment 14 times because lj just freaked out!
Lovely prints as always!

Hi Jasmine! Congrats on the new endeavor with Matt. That is so awesome! I just wanted to mention something to you. You may want to think about becoming an LLC, if you're not already. It's about $500 to do, but it protects you and your personal assets (like your house) from business assets. It's strictly for small independent business and it is a smart idea for people who are self employed.

Your work has also got me focusing on art again. Thanks for the inspiration and all of your helpful insights you post.

Oh yes! I will probably go LLC in not too long, especially if I end up hiring my sister too, hehe.

Aw, I'm happy to be any kind of inspiration, thank you!!! >^__^

Those prints are wonderful!!!
I'm glad things are running so smoothly for you and Matt- it must be great to have his company as well as his help ^__^ I do my work from home too (jewelry making) and I know it can get pretty lonely! I hope (and i'm sure they will) things keep running well and it all works out like planned!
