In exchange we will have a guest judge award a prize to the person who puts in the best story and shows us their gift --

Prizes for presents:

after you receive your gift, take a photo of it and post it below in the comments

  • everyone who shares the photo will receive a gift from me of my upcoming ebook (still being written, so you'll get a first edition) Succeeding in the Art Fair Business: 20 Tips
  • the best photo/gift combo will receive this prize a handmade deer tracks leather checkbook from Sherer Saddles

I'm delighted you liked your gift, Christine ... makes my heart warm with happiness!  Hope to see your post on who gave you what gift next year...

I didn't realize how blurry the photo was. Guess I was tired when I posted this. I'll try to get a better one. The photo doesn't do it justice.

Thanks, Christine .... a clearer picture would be great.  I'd appreciate it.

If you haven't received your gift or are concerned whether or not your gift was received, please be patient. Some of us are traveling and may not be home to receive them. Speaking of that, last year I was traveling and just today saw my thank you from my giftee from last year! So glad she liked it. 

These gifts are all so WONDERFUL!!! Mine must have been sent to Virginia and arrived after we left for the holidays. Now I can't wait to get home next week to see what it is!

HA! I am sifting through my email and found an anonymous message from my secret santa that the gift was mailed to TX......should arrive next week. :-)

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!  I received my Secret Santa gift last night and WOW!  Thank you so much Sandra Schwarzbeck for the amazing glass pendant and earring set.  I am wearing them to our family get-together this morning.  As soon as I can get the picture from my phone to my laptop, I'll share my beautiful pendant and earring set with everyone.

Here is the beautiful pendant and earring set - my apologies for the quality of the photo...


I received my beautiful earrings from Michele Blank. They are gorgeous! Thank you!!!!! this has been great fun.

I also saw where the tracking did deliver to my secret Pal. Haven't heard anything from her yet.

Thank you to my Secret Santa (Magggie) for this beautiful necklace.  It is a polished stone (agate, I think) wrapped in silver on a silver chain. I will wear it with pride.  

Thank you, too, to Connie for organizing this fun event.  It doesn't matter where you got the idea - just that you brought it to us artists.


I am totally in LOVE with my gift from Colleen Williams of Local Texture in Chattanooga (  She saw that I love flamingos and made me a flamingo bud vase.  She did a fabulous job of packaging it (I'm always afraid of shipping fragile items).  Thank you so much Colleen! This is my favorite part of Christmas!!
