Good morning! New ACEO Cards, Japan, Taiwan Babies, other stuff.... [May. 20th, 2008|08:31 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Good morning everybody!

I'm in a happy mood today!

First off, I'm very happy because Matt & I have been working on some new projects, and they are going smashingly well. Some special stuff for Dragon*Con (Only 99 days left until Dragon*Con!) and some stuff I'll be sharing very soon, too!

Also I'm excited because I'm going to Japan this fall! I've never been anywhere in Asia before. We're going with my sister Amber (kenderdrache) and her husband Chris. Tokyo, Kyoto, Mt. Fuji, all sorts of fun stuff, I am so excited!

Other exciting news from Amber & Chris - they began the adoption process for a baby from Taiwan! I know it will take a long time (it's a very involved process) before they actually have the child home (definitely after our trip to Japan, hehe!), but I'm already so excited. They have wanted to do this for a long time, and I'm so happy for them!

So it looks like they'll be traveling to Asia a couple of times in the not-so-distant future =)

And Happy-Yesterday-Birthday to my sister Kachina!

Let me see - what else is going on - lots of painting and art-related stuff mostly. More exciting news soon hopefully from the Hamilton Collection (psst - if you haven't seen my first project with them, she is HERE!

Matt & I just watched the first two seasons of "Dexter" we got from Netflix & Itunes - what an awesome show. Now I have to wait months until Season Three comes up on Showtime. Hmph.

I'm antsy to go see the new Indiana Jones movie now - I'm happy to see it getting good ratings up at IMDB!

Now for the art spam:

I have a bunch of new ACEO Cards for you today! It's been several weeks since I've made some ACEO cards, so this is a GREAT group, some of my very best and most recent paintings in ACEO format.

For more info about ACEO cards, how I make them & what they are (basically tiny hand embellished one of a kind canvas prints, trading card sized at 2.5"x3.5" and highly collectable), consult the individual auction descriptions - they are each one of a kind and are awesome! I only make ONE of each, so they very limited (truly one of a kind!). All are starting at a penny, with no reserve for ten-day auctions ending on the afternoon of Thursday, May 29th at 7:00PM - 7:22PM Central Time!

To see them all together visit the ACEO section of my store HERE!

How exciting!! I've never been to Asia...well to visit. I was born in South Korea, but since I was adopted at 4 months of age, I don't remember it. :P

And I know a couple who adopted a little chinese girl from China. They were there forever, but she's just adorable!!

I'd love to adopt a baby. Just to give some little one a better life, as my parents did for me..

We have a few families on our block who have adopted children from China and other countries in Asia. I think it's a wonderful thing.

I'm curious to visit - we are going with a guide, since none of us speak Japanese! I can usually fudge my way through most European languages, but I have no clue when it comes to Asian ones. I think it will be a fun trip!

I agree - if I were to ever consider having children, I think I would lean towards international adoption as well.

We're excited!!

Dexter is a fantastic show, it really is good television.

It's funny - we were just saying that the actor playing the "teenage" version of Dexter (in flashbacks) looks a bit like Daniel!

Whoa! COOL!!! I totally want to go to Japan as well! I'm going to try to go on my way back from Hong Kong one of these times! :)
That'll be so much fun! You better bring lots of SPENDING money--cause I'm sure you are going to want to buy everything you see!

I'm envious of your upcoming holiday in China - those pics you posted look divine!

OMG I am so going to SHOP in Japan! I could probably plan a whole trip devoted to that alone, lol.

Japan, you lucky girl!!!! If you visit Kyoto in the early evenings, let me know if you see any geisha and maiko. I hope to see some Japanese inspired paintings as a result!! I have a friend in Japan right now, actually. So jealous! I'll go one day, but in the meantime I'm happy to see friends go instead and see all their pictures.

I will, definitely! I'll take pictures if I see one!

Definitely, I often come back from vacations very inspired, especially those trips where I experience different cultures. I'm so excited!

That's one of the things I am most thankful for - my job (being self employed especially) lets Matt & I travel a lot. It's my favourite thing to do, after painting of course =)

HAha, ok cool! That is very luck that you have family there, definatly a good call if you want to stay for free.
It must be crazy over there. I have a pen pal there, and the stuff she talks about sounds...out of this world.

France will be good this year, they are predicting a good summer this time around.

I'm so going to do a lot of shopping in Japan!! I'm excited!

I'm also so excited for Amber & Chris' baby. They've wanted to do this for a long time, but had to wait due to minimum age requirements and other paperwork stuff. I will of course post photos when they finally get their baby!
