Good morning! [Nov. 6th, 2004|10:36 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm feeling a little better today, but my voice is still mostly gone. Matt keeps making fun of me =P

They're off at Epcot today, while I stay home and work, lol. I'm going to meet up with them later for dinner though!

I have been so incredibly busy lately - pre-Christmas rush, I guess! So many things to get done, commissions, and of course book stuff. We had been planning on going up to Kansas City for Thanksgiving, but I have so much work to do, I'm not sure..... We've had solid visitors for one month straight (just a couple days without), and that would leave me with just one week of work to get in before we would leave and go to KC, and then back here for two weeks and then back in KC for Christmas? I just don't know if I can do that, since November/December are my busiest months. We'll see. Either way we will definitely be up at Christmas time =)

I'm sorry if I haven't been very active up at LJ - I've been trying to spend as much time with my family as I can while they are here, and other than that I've been working hard and of course being sick =P

I would like to get some painting in later today - I need to attack this mountain of email first though, hehe. I'll update later with the webcam link when I begin painting!

We're going to go eat at Spoodles on the Boardwalk (the resort next to Epcot) it's a kind of fancy Mediterranean restaurant.

Oooh! I haven't been to the "sit-down" restaurant in Morocco at Epcot yet, but I sure do love their quick-service "Tangierine Cafe". We'll probably go there soon though - we hang out at Epcot a lot!

Hehe, well - having Matt home all the time now helps a lot!!! He is an entertaining guy, and loves chauffeuring everybody around town, hehe. He is very good friends with my family members too - we all get along great!

I love having visitors =) I always feel a little bad working so much, but I kind of have to, lol. I try to time it so I have a good portion of the evenings off to spend with our friends and family when they are staying here. I also don't sleep very much, which actually helps a lot, lol.

You are very lucky! I dred visitors/inlaws LOL. but I am a bit of a nut too. I think I stress myself out and put too much pressure on myself to "entertain" when we have relatives visit.
Sometimes when you "work out of the home" people dont take it seriously, like it is a real job. It is so great that Matt and your relatives are so wonderful and respectful of that :) and give you your work time.

I hope you feel better soon. Well, it sounds like since you are going for Christmas, it's probably not going to upset anyone if you can't make it for Thanksgiving.

we're not going to kc either for turkey day. however, we are thinking that we may not be coming up for christmas either as we are not sure whatis in the cards for bradley as far as military...plus with me being 6 months pregnant then-not sure if the traveling would be good. we both have some family down here in texas though...they are really close by and we dont have to worry about driving through snow storms or crappy lines and delays at airports

OFF SUBJECT, but important

I was recently in a store that was a Hot Topic knock off, and I saw a painted lightswitch plate with what looked like your work on it. I flipped it over and over and it had no artist reference on it, which made me wonder if it was sanctioned.

I'm pretty sure it was this piece. I will check again tomorrow.

But have you sold any pieces to be made into home decorator lately?

Re: OFF SUBJECT, but important

Oh yes! Was it this here:



If so, it's indeed an official piece of merchandise =) I actually have them in my eBay store HERE They're carried in a lot of different stores throughout the country

My name and copyright stuff is on the bottom of the switchplate itself =) Thank you for letting me know though, there are a lot of ripoffs out there and I try to keep on top of it all!

*phew*

Yes, that was it. Good to know. I look out for stuff like that. I am generally very observant (and vigilant) of stuff like this and it makes me very upset when artists I enjoy get ripped off. I will always be on the look out and if I ever see stuff I always ask and inform the artist as best I can. I so often see Edward Jaun's stuff, get knocked off (http://fly.to/hocuspocus), and I try to tell him when I see it. So I am glad that this was something you knew about and were apart of. You have a friend in me. I will always keep my eyes pealed. O-O
