Good morning, everybody! [Dec. 8th, 2005|11:31 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Last night Heather treated me, Matt, Amber & Chris to Spoodles (a wonderful Mediterranean restaurant at Disney's Boardwalk resort!) in celebration of her awesome new job!

They make fantastic vegetarian platters there, and we also ordered a sampler of different Mediterranean dips. We ate sooo much, and didn't get home until pretty late.

Other than that though, it's pretty much been work work work here. Definitely feeling the holiday rush of web orders, wow! I need to find some time to do my own shopping too, lol. Got commissions to finish with Christmas deadlines as well.

I'm taking a bit of time to work on a mermaid painting I started yesterday! Somewhat inspired by our trip to the Caribbean. There will be tropical fish and beautiful water.... you can peek in on me while I paint here......

Awe, that was very nice of Heather to treat you all too dinner. I have been to Disney Boardwalk and for the life of me can not remember seeing Spoodles. I am going to have to keep my eyes peeled next time we go there so I can try the food there. =)

Sorry to hear that your going insane with web orders, commissions and trying to get your own holiday gifts in together. I know, it can get really tough. I have every ones gifts wrapped and packaged I just need someone either to take me to the post office or go for me as I am way to out of it to do it myself. As for my families stuff it lays in the closet unwrapped still.

Oh, a mermaid, I'm excited to see how she looks. It sounds like you were inspired on that Caribbean vacation. It is too bad the camera does not work for me. Oh, well it will be more of a surprise to see it when you post it on up!! =)

Have a great day!

*Hugs*

Oh!!! Spoodles is wonderful wonderful! It's been there for years, hehe - right by the Bakery and the Flying Fish.

Actually, This Book even has a quote from me about how much I love it, they sent me a free copy since they used my name, hehe.

I finished my mermaid last night - she turned out soooo pretty, I can't wait to show her off!

It sounds great by the way, you described it. I can believe I do not know of it. My goodness I have to go and check it out.

That is so cool that you were put in that book. Very awesome!

I'm going to have to check your mermaid out as you mentioned you are going to be showing her off, I'm looking forward to seeing her.

*Hugs*

I'm so jealous about your restaurants down there in Florida. I wish there were more good veggie places here in KC. That food sounds great!

There really are some great ones here - one of my favourites is the "Garden Cafe" - it's in downtown Orlando and is an all-vegetarian Chinese restaurant. I actually uploaded their menu to my website to show off to my other veggie friends....

Everything is made with fake meat!

I'm a vegetarian (no pickled fish for me!) but I still like Akershus (Norway), hehe. They have good mashed rutabega, veggies, pasta, salads, breads and cheeses (they have a caramel cheese, which is tasty!). I can definitely see how it would be an acquired taste though!

Hey!
I haven't talked to you in awhile. I have to make this short...I'm at school. I just wanted to say hey and that your paintings are so beautiful.
Keep up the good work!

Can you post pics of your cruise or are they private? I'd love to see what it looks like there.

Blown Away.

I have just randomly come across your website whilst searching the web for inspiration for my own drawings of faeries. I'm finding it quite hard to find the words that will do my feelings about your paintings justice! At one point I felt like I could cry. They're absoultely beautiful! I love your style of drawing and the colours that you use, (I always mess my drawings up whenever I try to add any colour to them!). What actually span me out the most was just how much you look like a friend of mine and also that she did a sketch of herself that looks exactly like the one you have on your website in the menu column, where the girl is sat with her arms wrapped around her knees. I've really only just started fiddling around more seriously with my drawings and seeing what you have done is extremely inspirational to me. Love and Light Kaz
