WOOHOO!!! [Mar. 12th, 2005|04:32 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
We bought a car! A nice one! A 2003 Astro Van - I love it! I've always liked Astros - we had one when I was growing up and my dad still uses it - they are very reliable. It's perfect - it seats 8 people, lol - that's too cool. That would fit me, both my sisters, all of our husbands, Theodore and Kachina's NEW baby! (Oh yes - for those who don't know, Kachina & James are expecting a NEW baby this fall - Theo will be a big brother!!). The seats come out too so we can use it to haul lumber or go camping or put tents & art fair stuff and all that kind of thing. Looow miles, great warranty (since it's in such good condition the Saturn dealership let us have the same warranty they give their new cars!).

Thank you SO MUCH, foxmagic for taking us to the the car store!!!

I can't believe how nice it is to have a good car. Wow! We've never had a car newer than 10 years old or with less than 100,000 miles, so this is fancy for us, hehe! I can actually go on road trips if I want to! (If I didn't work 24/7 that is, lol).

Enough excitement - I'm painting! After a lot of confusion and lots of tape I have moved my webcam to face my BIG painting board, so you can watch me work on the giant 48" commission I'm painting, hehe! It's not the best angle, mostly you will probably just see me or my hair in the way, hehe, but oh well =P

HERE I am on the webcam!

Funny, we have a 2003 AWD astro van. I love it! It's so big we took out the back bench seat and hauled a 2 piece hutch china cabinet in it. It sounds like a truck but it's a nice ride and much bigger than most things on the road. Ours in white with silver trim...big ass milk carton I call it!

I've been in a artist's block for awhile now. Do you ever get those? And if you do, then what gets you going? Where do you get your inspiration?

Hi Abby! To be honest I don't think I've ever had "artist's block". I'll consider myself lucky there!

If I ever need a boost of inspiration though, I'll just listen to music or go for a walk in the woods - that gets me every time!

Calling the storm print?

Jasmine, I hate to bother you, but I have an 11x13 frame can a large print of this be cropped to 11x13 to fit the frame otherwise it does have an 8x10 mat. But I never owned a large print before and would like one. Sharon Please e-mail me one this and the total of the prints for my niece and this one. Thanks...
