Goooood morning! Happy Spring/Ostara/Equinox! [Mar. 21st, 2005|10:15 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
We had such fun yesterday! Took a break and went to nymphie & synthestatic's house, for their Equinox party!!!!! Celebrating spring, etc. Lots of yummy food - springtime foods like fruits, strawberries, asparagus, stuffed grape leaves, all kinds of yum. And also Boca veggie burgers on the grill, hehe. We bought stuff at Michael's - different coloured and patterned papers and wooden eggs - we cut up the papers and decoupaged them onto the wooden eggs to decorate them, it was a lot of fun! All of it we did outside in the backyard with all the birds singing and flowers and lizards, it was idyllic for spring.

We stayed late watching TV, new Simpsons, a National Geographic special on "Hogzilla" (which seemed to have been greatly exaggerated), etc. What a fun time!

Now though, I must work =P I'm finishing up my Tiki self portrait - I'll probably finish it in the next hour or two - and have it ready to post tonight! You can watch me paint HERE!

And after that I'm going to start a new pirate piece, or maybe a fairy painting. Or maybe a new Alice. Ah, who knows?

Yay!! Got another Click-N-Ship notification from BPAL!! A 5ml of Bon Vivant and a 5ml of New Orleans. Haven't tried either of them, hehe, but they sound good to me. This, strangely enough is for my 02/13 order. I still haven't received a C-n-S for my 01/25 order, but the Lab folks told me it's still being worked on, so it's not lost or anything at least, hehe. They just don't arrive in the order I placed the orders in, but in a way that's kind of exciting, mixes it up a little bit.

All right - off to work!

:::EDIT:::10:37am:: Oops! Just realized I need to run to the store real quick! BRB and painting!::::

Poor Hogzilla! :)

I'm glad you had fun, I had a great time hanging out with you guys. You're relaxing to hang around (a big compliment from an introvert ;)).

Honestly, I really do enjoy your company. I want to come visit you on a weekend and take pictures/hang out.

Aaaaw! You poor BPAL addict! LOL I am making a point not to try anything from there! I fear for the safety of my PayPal funds! LOL

I love the idea of the wooden eggs! I didn't know they had them at Michaels. That is just a great idea:) Happy Ostara! XOXO

Oh I wanted to go to that party!! I read about it in the lovely nymphie's journal and really wanted to go! But of course the distance thing was a small problem lol. Maybe next time I'll be in the US anyway and may be able to go :)

BPAL must be good since they seem to take a while to ship things out! I keep meaning to order from them but I keep going shopping in London and find other stuff I want hehe!

Oh - BPAL is wonderful stuff! They typically take about 1-2 months to ship, since everything is hand-blended. Definitely worth the wait. I order regularly so I get orders regularly, just a month or two later in the cycle, lol.

What a nice Ostara party you had. I missed mine. :( My friends celebrated without me. I was in the ER and found out I have an infection of the parotid glands. LOVELY. More antibiotics. No wonder I've been so miserable feeling. My new prints cheered me up though. My friend and I are designing our new tattoos. Her's with your violet fairy and mine with the pink butterly fairy. Will send photos when done. It'll be about 2 weeks before tats and then healing time.

I love your little fairie art! A friend turned me onto your site after buying the peppermint fairy sticker at hot topic. I love the littleness and childlike look of your fairies. I have been looking for the perfect fairy to get a tattoo of when i decide to get my first tattoo.

I think you should make a little readheaded one or one accociated with a cat, like you have the butterfly one.

They are beautiful!
