I have a problem...

Post by Painted Ink. Izzy on Thu Sep 22, 2011 1:22 am

I ordered one of each of the Paradise colors and literally have only used the 2 paradise pallets I just bought once... 3 prismas and 3more starblends. Brushes....I also bought a bunch of other accessories... totaling $300.00 and it honestly scares me how easy it was to do.... I need to get more gigs asap to make up for my temporary insanity...

There needs to be local FPA ( Face Painter Anonymous) meeting.

My name is Sara and I am a Face Paint-aholic.

Love you guys!

I agree, it is really easy to spend money in face paint that you don't need, my first excuse was because I needed to find the right brand for me, now it is because I need every neon color, or I need every metallic color, every split cake... that its not true, I do admire those artist that can control themselves and can do an amazing work just with a kit that fits in a small backpack.

Monna you fancy little thing! Lovin the roses. cheers

I too am a FP product addict but am on a diet. A FP diet! I am not allowing myself to buy anything new till the beginning of November(unless I need it desperatly). I need to use up some of what I have to justify getting more. There are soooooo many things I want. So, so many. Cool

oh i totally agree!....I put myself on a diet tooo....thing is ....a few times when i do go off the diet to order ...i can be a monster... Suspect ...

but i have to do that too...be firm with myself...i do pretty good most of the time...then like in crafts...i go to a craft store...(which thank goodness is at least 40 minutes from me)....i see a sale..whoo hoo...what a day.. i notice in face painting store...(on line)...they DO NOT have great sales...so I can usuallly behave myself...and get what i need....and only get tempted on things...i haven't ever tried and WANT....

LMAO! I just said to my hubby this morning "hey, I'm taking the baby and going to Hobby Lobby to get some brushes. See you tomorrow!". Hahahaha! Yes, I too have a problem. And could easily spend ALL day at HL. Or Micheals. Or on the computer at FPF Shop. Oh wait, I HAVE done that last one.

My name is Summer. I am an addict.

It's just so easy to spend it when you know you will make the money back. I try to limit it to $150 a month, but if I'm working every weekend, I feel I can spend more Wink LOL
