Art Fair Insiders

Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Welcome to our Secret Santa-ing group. Names were drawn on Dec. 6. What to do next:

  1. Open that email and you'll find out who you will be sending your gift to. 
  2. Go to that person's link on and leave them a message. If there is not a mailing address ask them to add it to their page. Send a cheery greeting.
  3. Decide on a gift. This is not about $$. It is about sharing your creativity, your art, some cool object that is handmade. Baking cookies is fine too. It's about community. 
  4. Put your package in the mail by December 17. 
  5. Leave comments below if you have questions AND post your gifts with photos if you can. There will be a prize for the most creative response. A highly respected juror will choose the winner.

P. S. If you don't know how to "add an image" to your comment, click here for help: Get Started

Happy holidays to all my friends in Art Fair Land!

Very nice!

Thanks for posting, Roxy.


Don, I put on my Instagram, and it already has a bunch of likes.

Really beautiful ... jealous!

Whoever my Secret Santa is, thank you for the sun catcher and ornament!  Love them!

I just received a beautiful dish from my Secret Santa no more, Kristin Collier at Creekside Glass Art.  Kristin, I love the dish and have just the place of honor for it.  The colors are perfect! Thank you.  Safe travels back to North Pole.

I have had a devil of a time with this website so am hoping this and the picture make it out (apologies if there are 3-4 of the same out in virtual space).

Mary, click on this link. You'll find a tutorial to help you add the image:

Boy did I score!!!  I just received my secret Santa gift from Jacki Bilsborrow in Michigan. She sent me an absolutely lovely Schlabaugh & Sons cutting board along with napkins and cheese slicer!  I just love it!  The cutting board is a perfect size to serve, cut, and show off!!  The cheese knife is a cute mouse!  Thank you Jacki!! It's a gem!!  (I haven't been able to figure out how to flip this photo!  It's right side up on my computer!!)

I am glad you like the gift Judy.  I thought a cheese knife would be easy to find.  But, not in our town as so many of our specialty shops have closed down.  I even looked on Amazon but they didn't have what I was looking for.  I finally remembered that I saw a mouse cheese knife once in our hospital gift shop. Thank goodness they still had one because that knife helped make my gift.   

Well, it's perfect for me Jacki!!  I had a cheese ball partially eaten in the fridge that now has a place of honor on our table!!  Good job!!  Thank you!!!
