Busy morning =) [May. 5th, 2003|12:44 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I mailed out a bunch of stuff today - including presents for Amber's graduation party and Mom's Mother's Day presents too. It's so strange to mail things like that! There is so much going on - Kachina's birthday is on the 19th - we'll be sending her presents shortly as well =)

At the end of the month of course, we're driving back up to Kansas City and will be staying with Kachina & James and we'll be going to Amber's wedding!!! After that, Kachina is riding back with us here and then she's flying back home after a week and a half. Then, we'll be driving back for fourth of July. Then later in July Mom is coming to stay with us. Then, a week or two after that I'll be going back to Kansas City for Annie's wedding, and mom's birthday, lol. It's amazing - I can't believe how much visiting back and forth we are doing. It's really rather nice. I'm happy that I'm self-employed and can do this sort of thing a lot =)

I finished "The Frog Prince" and (if I do say so my self) it is very, very adorable, hehe. I'm working on Alice & the Cheshire Cat, which I will hopefully finish by tonight to list on eBay. I will probably make Alice an ebsq+ listing (with a minimum bid of $100) and I'll put the buy-it-now at $500 - just in case ;) "The Frog Prince" will start at a penny with no reserve.

I bought an address stamper (self inking, with my business address info) and a do-not-bend stamper on eBay, and I'm bidding on a USB extension cord =)

I need to go through some more email - I'll probably get to that tonight after I do my eBay stuff!

Yay! I can't wait to see the new paintings =) Especially the Frog Prince!

You have a lot of weddings to go to in the next few months. That will be fun =).

i'm so glad you're planning on coming back for my wedding too! i know it's a lot of tripping back and forth- is matt not going to be able to get off work? :(
your mom said she wants to give me a shower too :) and last i heard she was cleverly coordinating it to be right after the 4th of July so you and Aunt Hilda will both already be here- very cool!

self-employed is definitely the way to go!
I can't wait to see how Alice and the Cheshire Cat turns out!

Matt will most likely have to work since he'll be taking time off for Fourth of July (he'll get to see you then at least, assuming you'll be at the yearly picnic!). We'll see how things are going though =) I'll definitely be going!!!

I had a good idea. I'm sure you've probably thought of it before but just in case you haven't.... In Reserve Price Auctions, Buy It Now doesn't disappear until after the first bid that meets the reserve price. If you were to start the auction at a penny like normal but with a $100 reserve it would still qualify for the ebsq+ status. Then you would be able to still have your BIN show for at least a day or so till the price gets up over the $100 mark. I know your famous for your no reserve auctions but I thought I'd mention this anyway :) Plus everyone knows that your big beautiful paintings always sell for much more than $100 anyway so I don't think it would be that big of a deal to your major fans. I can't wait to see your Cheshire Cat!

That's true - I've seen several ebsq+ members using that technique. I don't know, I very rarely bid on reserve auctions myself, lol. Most of my regulars have gotten used to the idea that I start the bidding at $100 on my ebsq+ auctions now, I always try to make them a little extra special to justify it =)

Re:

Ya, I know. I just thought I'd mention it. Maybe I'll use it for some fab acrylic pieces when I finish some ;)
