You all are invited to take part in our 5th Annual Secret Santa Gift Exchange. Members of the artist community sign up to exchange gifts. We do it anonymously (or not). All gifts should be handmade/from an art fair/etc.

In the past it has been lots of fun to see what people send each other, from handmade potholders (honestly) to batiked pillows and original fused glass serving pieces. 

(Search "Secret Santa" on this site to see the cool stuff.)

50 members joined us last year. Will you be part of the holiday fun this year?

It works like this:

  1. Sign up to join the fun by November 30 by putting your name in the comments below or emailing me directly:

  2. I send you the link to be part of our gift giving from You click on it to join.

  3. On December 1 the site automatically draws the names, an anonymous matching of all who have signed up

  4. By December 16 all packages need to be in the mail

  5. When you receive your gift post it on AFI

  6. The person who got the coolest gift and tells us about it in the most creative way wins a prize.

Hope you'll join us.

May the gifting begin!

P.S. See the results from 2015 here:

  • I just received this absolutely beautiful Zentangles drawing from my secret santa, Ronnis Oher. It is a wonderful artistic addition to my otherwise boring white, on white, on white dining table. The dedications and amount of hours to do this type of work truly takes many hours. Thank you Ronnis.301677189?profile=RESIZE_1024x1024

      My secret Santa, Cindy Welch made my holiday happier with some personalized coasters and notecards.  Thank you so much!  The coasters will come in handy during this holiday season!
