Rock me all night long...

I really can't recommend this for everyone, but hearing KC and The Sunshine Band always brightens my day. Why? Maybe because I was a happy-go-lucky 10 year old when the band was popular(wait, shouldn't all 10 year olds be happy). And did my parents realize I was singing songs about shagging? I know I didn't. I thought he was just singing about dancing. It probably warped me on some kind of subliminal level but it could be worse.

I'm trying to figure out ways to make some extra money besides selling our belongings on eBay. I could set up some sort of relief fund for the poor paintergirl. I haven't worked it all out yet. My lovely UK friends could just send me chocolate from Algerian Coffee down on Kings Road. Great stuff. If I were on a desert island, and I could pick one thing that I could eat, it would be this chocolate. So anyone with connections, email me.

Wish I could help but I'm in the same boat. Does e-bay work? Not sure I's actually make any money. Might have to give it a try at this point though.

i like the relief fund idea. you make the world a better place with your art. and eventually you would be self sufficient, you just need a jump start.

there's got to be some brilliant bloggers who stop by and can offer advice. any wannabe (or real) marketing people looking to get involved in the arts?

mommy-you know it's better than having a garage sale. it takes more time, but some things just sell. Videos, dvds, toys. Check it out. It's alwys nice to have some extra money.

yes relief fund. maybe that should be the name of my other blog.

I could do with some tips myself too! I am hoping to win the lottery but I cannot afford to play! Damn.

E-bay may be good, depending on where you live. I don't think it's as good for making money as it was say 5 years ago. There is no point selling anything on E-bay from Denmark simply because our postage is RIDICUOUSLY high; seriously. Everyone would think I was taking the piss and trying to make extra money when advising on postage prices.....

In any case: GOOD LUCK, PainterGirl :-) Hope it works out for you [and when/if it does, be sure to spill the beans ;-) ]

I'm just about ready to chuck it all. Downsize. We-have always thought that living like the Dutch(Small spaces with smart storage)the way to go. I see selling this house and buying a cottage. Moving out of the most expensive county in New york would help.

"Small spaces with smart storage" --> that instantly brought IKEA to mind..... ;-)
