March is National Craft Month !
National Craft Month (USA)
The National Craft Month promotion in March is a time when retail craft stores around the country hold special activities, events, workshops and demonstrations to familiarize consumers to the many joys and benefits of crafting.
:boogie: :party:
"Crafting is booming</i> and continues to gain in popularity. Why? Because it's an enjoyable activity that provides lots of benefits. It's easy; it helps reduce stress; it builds children's self-esteem and learning skills; it's emotionally pleasing; and most importantly — it's fun!
The Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) has dedicated the entire month of March to celebrating all that crafting has to offer.  "Crafting is a great way for families to get together, be creative and have a good time,"  Call your local craft store or visit for additional information.
CHA is a not-for-profit organization consisting of more than 6,000 member companies engaged

The Implications of New Advertisement Positions
Having been a member of Deviant Art for a couple of years now, I have to say that I love this site.  The accessibility that is afforded for my art to be seen is not only welcome but also needed.  Most love the systems that allow us to show appreciation for other artists, and even appreciate that Deviant Art makes the site work through member “donation” and advertisement sales.  This should not be seen as an irrational rant about how advertising is evil.  I don’t believe that it is.
We have this new collections system; the interface is amazing and very user-friendly.  The problem comes from the new advertisement position that came with it.  Who had the idea to put a gigantic ad in the middle of everyone’s gallery?  Shouldn’t people other than the administrators have been asked about this?  There is something to be said for mercy and discretion.  With this in mind, hear me o

Advice for Artists PART ONE
Part one of two.
The Basics:
When artists are starting out we are often so eager to be published that we are happy for anything that comes out way and don't stop to think. Creative people love being told they are liked and wanted. This article is designed to help you avoid the pitfalls that inexperienced artists often encounter.
Unfinanced Entrepreneurs:
“Unfinanced Entrepreneurs” was term coined in an articles by Mark Evanier. These are people with grand plans and no track record to back in up. They draw you in with tall tales of how when their project is published it will be the next big thing and sell tons. They can’t pay you right now, but you’ll make plenty in royalties after it’s published.  Or worse they want you to work for “exposure”, because the commissions will come rolling in after their project has made you famous. They are working under the assumption that what you do is easy, quick and fun.  Remember, n

Advice for Artists PART TWO: Licensing
Please read PART ONE too!
Licensing is a funny thing. Many artists have been lead to believe that it’s a magic word and will make them rich and famous immediately because they see So and So’s art all over. That’s wrong. No one product or contract will do either for you.
1. Trust your instincts and don’t let jealousy get in the way. Just because you see someone else’s art on a product doesn’t mean you know it’s actually a good deal for them.
2. There are two aspects to product licensing: royalties and exposure for your art. Ideally you want both and if you get neither it’s no use at all. You get only small percentage of what the product sells for wholesale (i.e half the price you see in stores). Don’t let anyone tell you that licensing is going to make you rich OR that it’s just free advertising that you aren’t supposed to make any money from.
