Ruby Contest

July 14, 2009


Ruby Magazine is holding the first of many contests! This contest will be: Create a slogan for Ruby! We need a good slogan to go after or below our name “Ruby”.

This contest is open to EVERYONE! You don’t have to be a subscriber, but we hope you’ll want to 🙂

The slogan should be succinct and capture the essence of Ruby. 12 words or less. The top 6 slogans will be chosen by the Editors of Ruby and then YOU will vote on the 6 slogans. The entry with the most votes will be our new Ruby slogan. AND!  You’ll win a free subscription to Ruby AND!!!!! (yes there’s more!) a Grand Prize Goodie Bag which has been created from top to bottom by the Editors of Ruby. We are all creative and crafty and many of us are making a fabulous ‘something’ for the bag – which will be an original design by Amy Designs! And filled with things I know you’ll love. (There will be a picture soon)

If you’d like to enter a slogan into the contest, please email it to   Ruby Contest

All slogans should be submitted by Aug 15 and the winner will be announced in the September issue.

June 17, 2009


July 1 is our target date and we are on schedule! We have subscribers waiting for the first issue, and the Ruby Editors are posting on their blogs about Ruby and their departments. This is a magazine unlike any you’ve ever seen!

When was the last time you saw paper dolls in a magazine? And coloring pages for kids AND Moms!?!?!?!? Mom’s like to color too!

We have Editors covering 14 departments – Cooking, Home, Devotions, Hobbies, Paper Dolls, Flat Sydney Adventures, Music, Continuing Story, Friends, Charity, Coloring Pages, Puzzles, Humor Column for Moms, Gardening, Homeschool, Stationery, and WAHM’s! (and more than I haven’t mentioned, you’ll just have to be surprised) 🙂

We have NO advertising EXCEPT the ads from WAHM’s – and your ads are FREE! If you’re a WAHM (or Grandma or woman or sister or aunt) send me your ad. It should be 4 x 4 and it can contain text, graphic and a link to your site/blog. It should be a PDF or a jpg. Preferably a PDF.

You can subscribe to Ruby right here –

A 1-year subscription is 13.75 and includes 6 issues – July, Sept, Nov, Jan, Mar, and May. They will also be available by single issue for 2.75 once the July issue is out. A subscription saves you some money.

We budgeted right down to the penny, with absolutely NO extra money in order to give you the lowest possible price. Things are tough now, economically, and you need all the help you can get! Ruby has a point of view that starts at frugal and builds on that. It’s assumed that we are going to be frugal – but frugal can be fun and we show you all those ways and more.

Come and join us! 🙂

Happy Mothers Day!

May 11, 2009

I hope all you Mom’s had a great day yesterday – I did! I just didn’t do much of anything. A little knitting, a little sewing. Mike made me dinner – he makes the best dinners.

Here is your gift – I’m starting another magazine, just for us ladies, called Ruby. Please visit our blog here, and look for the first issue around July 1.  You can easily subscribe to the blog, on the top right sidebar. That way you won’t miss the news, and the premiere issue!

Have a wonderful week!
