Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Welcome to the 8th annual AFI Secret Santa. Secret Santa 2019 represents the 9th annual kickoff of gifting and good wishes for the art fair community.
Over the years, artists from around the world have come together during Secret Santa for a common theme—to spread goodwill and joy to one another, through the spirit of giving and receiving happiness.
In our eighth year, we invite you to join us once again, in a time where love and optimism is needed across the globe. At AFI, we rely on the kind hearts of our members to shine a little light during the holiday season, and this year is no different.
Last year over 80 artists and show directors sent through gifts through our exchange, one heartwarming gift at a time. This year, join us in keeping the tradition going!
HOW DOES THE EXCHANGE WORK?
Once you have notified me you want to participate I'll add your name to the email list at DrawNames.com. Next you will receive an email from DrawNames.com. You must click the link in that email "JOIN THIS GROUP". That will take you to the sign up page. Do that and you will be registered to participate. (If you do not signup at the link you will not be included in the drawing.)
Contact me to let me know you want to be included in the exchange.
The evening of December 9, 2019, we will close signups and our computer program will choose who you should send a gift to (this is the most important part; this is about the giving!). If you have not signed up by responding to our emails from DrawNames.com, you will not be part of this year's matching.
Once you receive the email from DrawNames.com with your match's information, you'll have until December 17, 2019, to ship your gift.
When you ship it, come back here to tell us you've shipped it.
When you receive a gift, you'll need to come back here and post an amazing thank you note, hopefully with photos!
*When you sign up at DrawNames.com be sure to fill out your wish list with some suggestions for your own personal Santa: color preferences, your interests, dream wishes. Also at that time include your mailing address so your Santa can get your present to you on time.
**This is not about buying a gift, this is about sharing your creativity. Gifts should be made by you or handmade preferably, maybe from an art fair. Suggested dollar limit (if you're buying) $25.
Curious about our gift drawings? Put the words in the search box up above "Secret Santa" and you'll find lots of fun and good wishes.
