Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Thank you to everyone who participated in the AFI 8th Annual Secret Santa Gift Exchange. 60+ people participated this year and the discussions both here on AFI and on the DrawNames.com site were fun to follow. Many beautiful, creative and unusual gifts crossed the country to our far flung group.
As promised the person who reported in here on their gift with the best photos and story was to receive a prize. The winner of the prize, jewelry created by Debbie Stillman is Robert Wallis. Robert's Santa was Roxy Lentz.
The judge was Cindy Lerick, former director of the Minneapolis Uptown Art Fair, St. Louis Art Fair and the Sausalito Art Festival. Currently she is the President of Art of Events,LLC.

Congratulations Robert! I totally agree with the judge's decision. Not only did Roxy put so much of her heart in what she gave but the way you let all of us be a part of it was awesome! It was like we were opening with you. Please email me your shipping address to me (email@example.com) and I will package up your prize and get it in the mail ASAP!
Roxy - you have been so generous in sending people gifts if their Secret Santa didn't come through that I'd like to send YOU something for not only being generous but also cause you were such an awesome Secret Santa. Can you please email me your mailing address as well? (firstname.lastname@example.org) I know we are both jewelry artist but if you are like me, we love bling no matter where it came from or who made it!!
