Mab mab mab [Jan. 5th, 2005|10:58 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Painting away on Mab still - I'm thinking she'll be done later today, in time to post tonight! I've been selling a lot of canvas prints lately and have been spending a lot of time working on those, so it's making this painting go a little slower, hehe, but I certainly can't complain about that! =)

I hope all of my family and friends back in Kansas City made it through the ice storm there! And I hope those of you in school got snow days ;)

I couldn't sleep at all last night, I haven't been sleeping well lately in general. I go through phases where I have chronic insomnia, and have since I was about 14. I get really tired, just not sleepy (if that makes sense). I only drink a maximum of one caffeine drink a day, so that doesn't seem to be related to it at all. Blah. Lack of sleep makes me perpetually groggy, it seems.

I've got a new project/adventure brewing! I'm not going to elaborate on it yet until I know for SURE and get it in writing, but it should be very exciting. YES it is art-related, but NO it has nothing to do with books or licensing or anything like that. Hehehe......

In the meantime you can watch me Mab it up HERE.

Hi Toni! No real updates - I'll make an "official" post when I know the exact release date and prices (for hardcover/paperback) and I will then start accepting "pre-orders". I'll post here at LJ of course when I know for sure, so you will be among the first to hear =)

Jasmine is going to start painting in the nude!
It's a new project, art related, and certainly is an adventure!
I think it sounds great, Jasmine...just one thing...are we gonna have to start paying to view your webcam?

Ooo that sounds so exciting with your secret news hehe! Yay for whatever it is lol!
An ice storm?! I didn't hear about that, all the news in the UK has been focused on the Tsunami and I haven't watched much tv at all latly, sounds nasty, apart from the snow days!
Aww I hope you can start sleeping better again, I hate it when I'm like that because I lie in bed going, "ok Sorrel, GO TO SLEEP RIGHT NOW!" lol! Of course it doesn't work, but it was worth a try! I hear lavender is good to make you sleep, spray some on a pillow, but not if you have allergies like me, it'll just make you sneeze hehe.
Hehe 'Mab it up' thats funny! Especially for someone having so little sleep! I tend to just ignore everyone lol.

We got hit here too with the ice storm, in Iowa. Now we're getting a TON of snow....11-16" expected. YUCK. It's a snow day for the kids here today. Greg didn't go to work...he works 90 min away. Lucky he gets a paid time off day.

Good Luck with Mab, can't wait to see it. Or to hear about your exciting new project.!!!1

Hey, Jasmine... what would you think about painting Macha, since you're doing Mab? It might be an interesting, dark turn in the goddess departments.

I also have periods of time where I go through insomniac phases, also since I was an early teen. It was quite extreme for a while.

Sometimes when this happens to me now I just make a Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime tea and read a book or watch T.V. and usually, after petting Balto a bit, I get back to sleep if I don't *try* to go back to sleep, but rather just drink the tea and read the book or something. Or sometimes I just watch a movie on DVD or some weird History Channel show or something.

Yay! I love art surprises! This one is even more curious since it seems to be out of the realm of books and such! I can't wait!
