Happy September! [Sep. 1st, 2005|12:02 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Today is my kitties' birthday! Yes, both of them - Quan-Yin and Azrael both turn six today. We are not sure on Quan's birthday since she was a feral cat rescue, so we thought we'd just lump them together, hehe.

I got some of the "best news ever" last night. That's all I'm saying about it for now though =P

Let me see.... the EBSQ shows are up! I am proud of myself, I entered all three shows last month!

The 2005 Pet Portrait Swap show can be seen here: 2005 EBSQ PET PORTRAIT SWAP

My entry: "Pixie Dogs"

Wendy's entry (quilt of my cats!): "Azrael and Quan-Yin"

To vote (EBSQ members), just click on the "Vote" button at the top of each entry. There are a lot of awesome entries!

The "Flower of the Month: Poppies" Show is HERE

What a great turnout! My entry is on page 4 - Jasmine's "Poppy Garden" fairy entry.

Then the awesome EBSQ SIDESHOW Show is HERE - lots of neat stuff!

My entry on page 3 - "LIVE: Two Headed Girl"

Lots of great art!

Let me see - soooo much to do today. Emails and phonecalls to make. Paintings to paint. I am nearly done with the giant commission and have a new commission to start as well. I might try to get something small up on eBay tonight too..... we'll see ;)

Off I go!

Re: bestnewsever?

It's art/business related - probably doesn't sound as exciting as it is, lol. It means a lot to me though, so it has really made my day/week/year =)

Thank you from the kitties!

It's art/business related - it probably isn't as exciting for anybody but me, lol.

It sure is! I was just telling Matt that this morning. It's our friend nymphie's cat's birthday today too!

Of course we don't for sure know Quan's birthday, it's around that time probably and easier to lump them together.

Hehe, she "claimed" me right after last year's show!

Her work is so wonderful. I can't believe she manipulates cloth the way she does. I heart Twinkles! ;)

Seriously...in the long history of art trades (hehe), this one has got to be the absolute best!

It is pretty darned cool! It's neat too because of the vastly different mediums we used. Such a unique thing - an art quilt!

Last year's was awfully good too - Carrie (tigerpixieart) painted my lovelies here: http://tigerpixie.com/com/comjasmine.html and I painted her Pixie Cats : http://www.strangeling.com/pixiecats.html - that was a good trade too!

I don't know if I'll do it next year - I have been asked by sooo many people already, I just can't choose. I worry about either hurting feelings OR taking on too many and swamping myself, lol, so I might just give it a miss or roll a dice, hehe.

Yes! I love Carrie's, too. Her trade with Michelle is a great one, as well!

Poor Jasmine! ;) It probably is a mixed thing...it feels good to get so many requests, but is a pain in the butt all the same because...you are only one person! :D

Hey, you could always draw a name out of a hat, too. Take Elton's advice and "promise them that"...kay, so I had to change the lyrics a bit, but still. ;)

Have you ever considered submitting your work at DragonCon? I think you would win a ton of awards there!
