Good afternoon!!! [Nov. 19th, 2004|02:59 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Well, as my horoscope predicted, I'm mired in paperwork today =P Every so often I have to play catch-up and do a bunch of the boring administrative crap that goes with running a business =P =P =P
****************
A NOTE TO ALL OF MY NEW LIVEJOURNAL FRIENDS
****************
Hi everybody!!! I see that a LOT of people have friended me over the last few months, and I'd like to thank you all very much and say that I am very pleased to meet you and that I am very happy that you have added me onto your lists! Most of you probably know that LiveJournal is the easiest way to keep in touch with me, contact me quickly, get updates on my new paintings and other projects, etc.

I've been getting a lot of emails from some of you so I thought I'd clarify this (I need to re-state this now and again for all of you new folks!), so here goes: PLEASE don't take any kind of offense if I don't add you back right away! I already spend so much time up here at LiveJournal that it can sometimes eat into my actual painting time, you see! Which is a very, very bad thing. About half a year ago I decided to try to keep most correspondence here in my journal itself rather than friending everybody back right away and spreading myself too thin. I hope that makes sense and that you all can understand that, hehe. Don't ever take it personally! And of course, this doesn't mean that I won't EVER add you back - once I start having little conversations and get to know people better I do occasionally add people, of course! I never want to hurt anybody's feelings, it's just that so much of my life is consumed with the creative and business aspects of my art that it is very difficult for me to maintain any semblance of a social life, online or off! So please - feel free to add me, to comment, to chat, ask questions, etc., but understand that I am a little overwhelmed right now and can't add everybody back right away. Thank you all for your support and understanding!!!
****************

Let me see, what else is going on.... not a lot really, just much of the same - painting, paperwork, files, prints, etc. I'll probably start on a new piece tonight after I finish up this custom painting. But right now I need to go eat some lunch!!!!

I really don't mind if you add me back or not. ^-^

I know you are very busy, and my journal probably wouldn't be mighty interestin' to you anyway. I think I left a comment about that a while back. I understand, I just love your art so much and must get all your updates!

Now I'm seriously pissed off that you don't add me to your friends list....jk. ;) It's good that you're so busy with your painting and even the admin stuff. (the more admin stuff, the better you must be doing/orders that must be coming your way) ;) Do what you can, and don't stress about us. We know how busy you are...(How many paintings do you do a year?!? More than most) Have a good one Jasmine =)

Aww have people been getting upset about it? Oh dear!
Once I started using livejournal properly a few months ago thats when I added you, I have no idea if you've added me back or whatever and I'm not worried about it because I know how busy you must be. I'm not as busy as you online with all your orders and ebay and stuff and yet I myself, forget to add people!
It was good of you to post that message though!

Hope you get through the paperwork soon hun!

You are such a cutie ^___^ I swear I have met few ppl as nice as you Jas ^_^ You have SO much on your plate yet you STILL take the time to answer comments and questions and give TONS of advice! I remember the entire REASON I got LJ was to post to you without being anonymous, LOL! And you always ALWAYS answered any question or really anything I had, even before we got to know each other ^___^ I wish everyone could be as sweet and as kind as you ^_____^

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO!

Speaking as a fellow artist, I completely understand how painting comes first! No offense taken and never was. I just love your art. :) Happy Turkey Day in advance.

I totally understand - and absolutely DOUBLE DITTO for me too - because I have a full-time job I devote 40 hours of my week to, and that eats into my painting time enough - I really can't fritter away what little I have left on chat, emails, livejournal, etc. - I've been doing that way too much over the summer and I've cut back a LOT lately - totally not intending to offend anyone, it's just that I need to PAINT. ^_^ And do all that administrative junk too. Poopies. :P

how funny!! i don't even know what add means! HAHA i'm not really into livejournal, and the only reason i joined was to rave about your paintings~~~but i can see you have a slew of fans already telling you, so i don't need to be adding to it, and besides, you know how i feel already!! :) you keep rockin' jasmine!! you're awesome (one last compliment) HEEHEE!(a fan) :)) ~patty~

How odd! I never figured you'd add me. To be honest, I added you so that I could see/get links to your current artwork, because I don't like how Ebay handles "favorites." :)

I think I saw you reply to Chunkygoat (who I also follow, to see her art), or saw her mention you once.

Oooh, you have no need to explain yourself, Jasmine! I think if anyone adds you to their friends list, they can realise that you are an extremely busy person and don't have time to spend all day on the Internet reading a 200+ friends list! :) Plus, I imagine a good percentage of the people you do have friended are also talented creative people like yourself .. you definitely would be bored by my posts :p I don't have a creative bone in my body, much to my dismay :( *woe* Hehe. But I do have an appreciative bone, and I appreciate and swoon at so many talented people's artworks daily! :)

Awwwww! Thank you Lisa!!!! Hehe, I don't know - I'm pretty boring myself, lol. Well, maybe not boring exactly, but kind of a lot of the same thing over and over again - I look through my journal and it is all 'Went to the Post Office - then answered emails - I'm getting ready to paint" etc. Lots of good eye-candy though I guess, lol!

Oh, you are far from boring, Jasmine! :p And you're right, you do have a lot of eye-candy for all to look at! I know that I personally am just so amazed at your talent .. I love your art so much, I'm like a groupie or something! *giggles* I can't wait 'til I'm rich enough to be able to afford an original of yours! In the meantime, though, I am quite happy with owning prints! :D *hugs* You're wonderful! :)

:) hi!
funny you wrote this right a few days after i added you !
one of the reason i did (apart from seeing your art which i can see on ebay when i receive the update mail) is because you are an inspiration with all the energy you put into your art and you are so good at coordinating it and every aspect of your artist (and private) life.
I imagine you cannot read every single entry every day for all the persons you add back either! otherwise you'd need a 48-hours day.
I see it myself...i paint little (ok i'm a mum but even so...i have not the energy you have! so even before i was a mum i painted less *_^) and i'm not even able to find the time to read all my friends' entries... :( and my friends are much less than yours ^_^ lol
ditto on your unique kindness & caring for everybody ^_^

just a quick question

I received your email recently about a new original called "voodoo doll bayou" and i was wondering if you will be selling any prints of that(its a definite must have in my place!)? I checked your site first but did not see it there so i was just curious. thanks

Re: just a quick question

Hi Sarah!!!! Thank you so much - I love this one a lot!

Oh yes!! I will start offering prints as soon as the original painting has sold, so probably next week sometime =) She'll definitely be one of the "SALE" prints too - I'll post links here when they are up for sale, and it will also be on my mailing list update =)
