Painting contest - $10,000 in prizes!

I am a fan of the Jerry's Artarama art supply store online. Every week, they run some kind of big sale and they are true to their word! Quality products, shipped fast and packaged well, all at great bargain prices. Right now, they are running a painting contest over there worth $10G! PLUS you get to be on the cover of one of their catalogs....if you win, that is.

Go for it women! Get it. Ooof Ooof Ooof!

How to find Art Festivals and Craft Faires to sell your wares.

These guys have an international calender that features art festivals and craft fairs all over the place. Be in line first to set up your booth and get your art out there!

Click HERE to find out all about it. It is a subscription thing that is around $14 for three months. Worth it if you are serious about working the fair circuit where a LOT of the money is.

Love ya,
Tellin' it like it is, baby. Tellin' it like it is.

P.S. Go though the archives to find more awesome art buys and things to avoid. Rubyfruit doesn't like her sisters getting ripped off.

Another product to AVOID!!!

Art supplies are expensive enough without buying things that suck. Right? Mary Olsen of Sparta, NJ writes, "I will never buy Plaaco Brand products again! I paid almost $40 for a set of their multi-colored watercolor pencils. When I went to sharpen them, the "lead" (or whatever you call it) was very thin and loose in the wooden casing and would break off in the sharpener. Worthless crap! "

So you heard it here first, girlfriends. Avoid Plaaco Brand, or rather BOYCOT it, especially the watercolor pencils. I won't have my sisters being ripped off!!!

Love ya,
Tellin' it like it is, baby. Tellin' it like it is.

Learn to Paint and Draw and See and Be Cool

Ok, say you have never been able to draw anything that you wouldn't be ashamed to show off in person but you really, really want to be an artist. You have two choices. You can do what I did and pay $5000 to learn these skills at a sucky art school that is the equivalent of throwing your money down the toilet or you can pay these guys something like $37 and get lessons that take you all the way from beginning to professional level. This covers painting, drawing, ways of seeing. Very cool stuff and totally worth it, if you ask me.

Love ya,
Tellin' it like it is, baby. Tellin' it like it is.


Never set foot outside again.

Stay home all day every day if you want to. These guys have come up with this catalog. It costs $25, but it gives you full instructions for making art and handwork that can bring in up to $5K a month. That is a lot of money and if you make that much, you might just want to finally step out and go get yourself something cool like a pet penguin or a talking avocado! or ART SUPPLIES!!!
