A small talk about pricing your artYou're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!More Like This
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.

PE: BookbindingThis article is a short introduction to bookbinding, including information about bookbinding terms, methods, tutorials and a feature of beautiful handmade books.More Like This
What is bookbinding?
We all have books at home, whether they be schoolbooks, novels, journals or sketchbooks. They might be paperbacks or hardbacks, though I'm guessing not many of you own hand-crafted books. With books being commonly used and readily available items today we forget that books are (or can be) works of art! Bookbinding is a craft especially cultivated in the Middle Ages, where books were still quite rare and expensive. The art of bookbinding has survived until today, although it is no longer necessary to bind books by hand, since we have machines that can do that for us. Nevertheless, a hand-made book is a beautiful thing, and has the special appeal of something unique.

word to the wise...I would like to share a personal experience with my closest friends about drinking and driving. Especially at this time of the year, the roadblocks come up with great regularity, As you well know, some of us have been known to have had brushes with the authorities on our way home from an occasional social session over the years.More Like This
A couple of nights ago, I had a few beers at Lawreys Bar in Laughlin after a nice dinner and wine at home. Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I've never done before; I took a cab home.
Sure enough, I passed a police road block but, since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise as I have never driven a cab before and am not sure where I got it or what to do with it now that it's in my garage.
note: actually, i received this in an e-mail.
Being green - Recycling paperPaper is one of our most valuable resource. Mostly paper is used to print or write on, as books, magazines, manuals, or as packaging, like paper bags or boxes. You encounter it everywhere.More Like This
It can be recycle, but not endlessly. After a few times, the fibers - of which the paper is made - get too short.
So why not reuse it once more before it goes to the paper bin? Take a look at the following works and get inspired:

Some of you might be even too young to remember those things called cassettes.
Fact is, there are less and less working cassette players and we remain with all those - now useless - music tapes and video cassettes.
Here are some ideas, how to turn them into new useful items:
