LOL - Deana - we totally went to Treasure Village, forgetting how you told us that it was Caity's school now, hehe. We got out of the car and saw the "This is not a store, it's now a school" sign - d'oh!
Now I'm back, catching up madly on emails, because lo and behold - tomorrow morning, Amber & Kachina & Chris & Theo & Ellie are going to be at the airport, coming down for a good long vacation down here in Florida as well. I'm very excited to see them! It does mean that it'll be some busy times for us though, work-wise, hehe. Thank you for your patience if I owe you an email, I have been swamped and am doing my best.
Hey - I got my Dragon*Con jury response - YAY - I'm definitely "in" - so I will be seeing a LOT of you at the Dragon*Con art show in the fall. Huzzah!
And YES - I have been getting all of your emails - I WILL be putting some new framed, ready-to-hang originals (small ones, and large ones) up in my eBay store soon. I'm happy that you all like them so much. I promise as soon as I can I will get more done - I have several new ones planned, and frames already picked out...
Tonight though - wow - I have so much other new stuff! A brand new CUSTOM painting auction, a couple of new OSWOA™ sized paintings, and some new ACEOs!
Also again - there is a big eBay SCAM right now - basically scammers are contacting bidders on eBay, pretending to be eBay sellers who are offering paintings or copies of paintings up for auction. It's a money scam - they typically ask for a Western Union Money payment, or something like that - taking the money and running. If you get an email from ANYBODY offering to sell you a painting of mine, or ANYTHING like that, please forward it to me directly at JasmineToad@aol.com (my only email address) as well as forwarding it to Spoof@eBay.com so eBay that can take care of it. The scammers seem to be targetting bidders on artwork especially, and many other artist friends of mine are getting hit the same scams, so be wary with other auctions as well. Basically don't buy things from people claiming to be eBay sellers, unless it's through eBay itself - simple as that.
So - back by popular demand and many more requests, I have another one of my "Custom" auctions!! This one is a BIG 12"x16" size! Basically it is an unfinished painting - just the basics are there - a wide eyed girl in front dark background. The winner of this auction will get to tell me what colour/style to make her hair, what colour eyes she should have, what type of skin tone, what kind of clothes, and what kind of wings (or no wings at all) if she's a fairy, or perhaps a "tail" if she is a mermaid!

Next are my little OSWOA™ painting! OSWOA™ stands for "Original Small Work of Art" - if you search OSWOA on eBay you'll find lots of actual original artworks from great artists - all the same size - 4"x6" - that is a great size because it is a standard photo size, perfect for photo albums, photo sleeves, frames, etc.

Whee! That's all. Now I need to go answer a zillion emails, and start getting ready for guests tomorrow. Sorry I gotta turn the comments off on this post, I am really overwhelmed right now.
