Happy Galactic President's Day!
June 7th. 6/7... 6x7 = 42! Galactic President's Day, how hoopy is that!
Ok, ok, we totally made this day up. Also, technically, it is already a few minutes past midnight, but I would like to celebrate this imaginary day by announcing the WINNERS of our YAG SWAG STACK ATTACK giveaway that we held between May 25th (Towel Day) and today.
Our main server is still down (again), so you can currently only access our page directly via masterminis.blogspot.com - we are working on resolving our server issue as quickly as possible (but past experience does not make us optimistic :/).
Therefore, if I may ask you to share this post on Facebook, so that everyone who participated finds out whether they won or not?
This time with no chance of winning anything? Just as a 'good deed' for a painting buddha in need? Thank you! :D
The Painting Buddha DVD Season 1 "Target Identified" production is complete! Over 2000+ hours of work resulted in a product that we from the Painting Buddha team are all very proud to offer to you, the painting community.
Between now and the shipment date we will provide you with enough information to find out, whether the DVD instruction set can help you to 'learn to be a better painter'. We will provide you with sneak peaks and all the details necessary.
For now, all we have to do is wait for the DVD delivery. Our shipment of the ordered DVD will be in time for the Summer Break - and give you ample of time to practice for this years competition season!
We anticipate to be able to begin shipping our product no later than the first week of July. We will receive a definite confirmation on the shipment date from our manufacturer next week!
This weekend we will just kick back, take the Monday off and take it slow. I will enjoy a painting workshop with Karol Rudyk and will not stare at the editing software for 20 hours a day ;)
