MMMH! I love organic vegan, too. :-) Gives me lots of energy. (Which I need!!!)
Have fun finding new paint brushes!!!
Yay vegan!! I get excited when I see that word! LOL XOXO
That sounds awesome Jasmine! We have a Whole Foods, Wild Oats, a food co-op, and my favorite place is Vitamin Cottage. I don't think many people know that they sell more than vitamins there. They are really cheap, too! They even beat out regular shopping places.
Have fun this evening! We're still waiting for our copy of the Incredibles to come from NetFlix! XOXO
Ah brushes....dontchya love the way we can send men to the moon, build micro computers that can do things that were unthinkable ten years ago, and split the atom, but have yet to create the perfect self sustaining, self cleaning brush. One that lasts more than two sittings, and doesn't end up looking like your nans plucked eyebrow?
I must go through twenty a month.
I'll have to pick your brains on the best deals when I come over.
Hey great post earlier btw-I think you are far too nice though miss Jasmine, you should get scathing on their arse like me-or perhaps you'd like some of my past replys to use for stock quotes*hehe
You just a big meanie tho ;p
I just watched "The Incredibles" for the first time myself last night -- loved it!
OMG that is too funny! Me and the kids watched the incredibles last night and I thought of you...Mostly I thought the little girls hair looked silky like some of the hair on your fairies..But she has dark hair and big eyes is why I thought of you!
Jasmine, Out here in Phoenix we have Sprouts, and Henrys and Whole foods and Wild Oats and now Sunflower Market, I love good carrot juice when I went to the Rainforest cafe at the mall here I always ordered there carrot juice for a pick me up. I love squash,and veg burgers, spinach. and Rice dream ice cream cakes . Yummy. I hope you get your brushes, and be painting I need more prints for my scarpbook. Have a great day... Sharon
Ah! Before I was an artist full-time I used to also work at the Rainforest Cafe (back in Kansas City) part time! I love that restaurant!!!!
I was actually going to suggest more Jasmine pirates meself!! hehe. ^-^ of course i'm still waiting on that Elizabeth Bathory, lol. ;D ;D ;D
LOL oh my brushes are beyond frayed!!!!! I do actually have one unopened liner brush, but I always used to use those for my tiny little 2" x 2" whale paintings, don't have much use for it with the bigger stuff i've been doing but I think i'll have to soon with those awfully frayed brooshes, lol. =D
Owww you got the paintbrush-issue too? Haha, I HATE painting with fuzzy brushes, so when I am in the 'big city', I always walk to the artsupplies-store to get some brushes(even when I still have some new ones at home). So I hardly ever run out(which is veeery handy ^_^ )
Have fun watching 'The Incredibles', it's incredibaly funny, and I agree with everyone; that little girl really looks a bit like you.
It's a great animation, so I bet you enjoy it a lot (eyefood)!!
bye bye ^_o
wow-i just read both of your posts. i was totally taken aback by the first one. i hope new brushes bring lots of smiles on your face. you deserve them after having worked so hard on being kind enough to answer all those emails.
i hope you have a wonderful time in KC. I love duckycat
's new house. it is so adorable...like something out of a story book.
We leave for california tommorow!! I cannot beleive it...it is like getting to go back home! I miss it so much.
ohohoh-i forgot...you are going to love the incredibles. yes you are like the girl in the movie a little bit. and when you see dash you will now know what our baby looked like on the ultra sound when we got to see it. it was hilarious it just kept running inside me and i was laughing so hard that it started kicking its legs even faster.
ok, thats just weird. i had been trying to think of a theme i hadn't seen anyone else do in awhile so i spent all day yesterday sketching out tiki stuff. *sigh* i give up! :)
the incredibles is awesome, btw... you'll like it.
Have a nice holiday. Can't wait to see your self portrait.
Hey ladies...how do you make your icon photos change. Does it need to be a paid account. I can't seem to find the answers.
Oh! It's just one picture, just an animated .gif
.gif files can either be stationary (like your picture) or animated with multiple frames, like my picture! They upload the same way to LiveJournal, just be sure the file is under 40kb.
I use a free animation program that came along with Paint Shop Pro to make mine! Or you can use a free program like UnFREEz - http://www.whitsoftdev.com/unfreez/
all you do is put the pictures in the order you would want them to be displayed, and save it as a .gif file. That way it looks like an animation!
Not to add to your email...BUT, I can't wait to see the self portrait!
OH MAN!! I LOOOOVE the Incredibles! It's SUPER CUTE!
>^___^< Thank you Lisa!!!!!!
Jasmine, I stop by your livejournal every now and then and I just happened to see that you said your brushes were "fuzzy", well I've not tried this myself, but my art teacher swears that if you dip your "fuzzy" brushes in boiling water and hold them there for 10 seconds ONLY that they will regain their shape. It's worth a try if you're going to get some new ones anyway, just try it with an old one first just to make sure it works, you've got nothing to lose!! Keep up the good work.

Re: reshaping your brushes
Aha! That is a fantastic suggestion! I will definitely give that a try - thank you so much!!!
Life at the top, eh?
I bought a big ol' tub of 144 Dynasty brushes...6 different sizes and 24 of each size...so that should last me awhile. Mind you, the speed you work, they would probably only last you about a week...lol
