Good morning everybody! [Jun. 9th, 2005|11:35 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Ah, I've been absent for the past two days! Don't worry, I'm fine =)

I've been very busy with my family here, and then I got really sick for a day with a cold/flu type thingy (lol - I swear the only time I get sick is when little Theodore comes to visit! Little boys are germ factories, hehe! It's worth it though, I couldn't turn down a hug from him - no way!).

I'm still feeling a little sick, I'm very sneezy and have a bit of a fever, but much better than before when I could just lay on the couch and stare at the ceiling.

Last night we had to take Kachina & Theo back to the airport =( I'm so sad that they are gone. I miss them so much.

At least I have Amber & Chris here now! Amber has been scheduling job interviews and appointments to look at apartments, etc. They're going to look at a new place later today - it sounds pretty cool! It's fun having them live here though, hehe.

It's really rainy again today - it's crazy how much rain we've been getting. Our plants sure love it though!

I'm going to try to get some painting done today now that I'm feeling better! I'm not sure what I will work on, but you can peek in on me HERE while I work =)

I noticed that you do paintings for people of their faces and what seems to be their "fairy side" teehee.

I know it depends on what I want as far as price, but to do an original, what would you charge? I want to get a painting and possibly turn it into a tattoo or my 'other side'

Oh yes! I do a lot of custom portraits (often very fairy-ish!) on a commissioned basis - my pricelist and policies can be found here:


Just let me know if you are interested or have any questions!!!!

I'm sorry you've been sick!! Yes, it does seem like everytime little Theo visits, you get sick! We have had tons of rain here, too. Tornadoes last night. But nobody was hurt. Hope you're feeling better and get rid of that fever soon!!!

Thank you mom! I'm feeling a lot better now at least =)

Eeek! Watch out for tornadoes!! I think our rain might actually be from Tropical Storm Arlene, but it's probably not going to lead to anything more than that (knock on wood!).

You mean the little monkey? He is so cute!!!!! What do the cats think of him? I am sure that they get a bit jealous. Hope you feel better.
Let me know when you get the book- I think you will love it!

Lol - yes that naughty monkey!

The kitties are kind of scared of him I think - they stayed upstairs a lot of the time during his visit, especially Quan-Yin! He got to pet them a little bit - he knows to be gentle now, so they really shouldn't be scared, hehe.

Re: Hope your feeling better Jasmine!

Hi Sharon! I'll go ask at the Post Office - I just have a little PO Box (the tiny sized ones) so often if there is a larger sized package or envelope I need to go ask at the desk for it =)

Oh! It's a "Watercolor Pencil"! Basically like a colored pencil, but instead of normal lead it has dried watercolor block in it. I sometimes use it to do sketches or to lay out figures before I paint - I paint right on top of it and wipe away the white watercolor sketch with a damp cloth. It's better than using a regular pencil since it shows up well on top of the paint for my own reference and it wipes away without getting smudgy!

Hope you are feeling better glad this cheered you up:) Happy painting!!!Don't overdue it.

Spicy food really helps clear out cold/flu nastiness!

My favourite cure: Ramen noodles with Red Curry Paste added in...

Anything spicy is good:)
My favourite thing to have when im sick
is KFC chicken. Oh is it ever good.
Chicken in general is good for when your sick,
doesnt have to be chicken noodle either.
red curry paste is really spicy isnt it?

I'm glad you're feeling better!!! Kids do equal germs. I've been sick more often and my kids have been sick more often ever since I started daycare. No seriously sick, but colds and stuff.

Getting sick really sucks. I work with germy little kids all the time in my job and I've gotten two colds, and one strep throat. I've only been working there since March! My job is to wipe the snot off their faces so they look good for their portraits. Oh Jasmine, some of these kids are soooo gorgeous, I would love to see them in one of your paintings! I wish I could send you pictures of them but they are copyrighted by my boss. :(

i cannot wait to show ruthie and theo to each other. they both are little monkey kids. i keep pulling her ears out when she gets all big eyes and it is absolutely hilarious. she would prolly get such a kick out of theo.

yay-for once you have family down there for good. i am glad for you, sometimes i wish i lived closer to my family!
