Don’t forget to sign up for our bi-monthly gift exchange.

Gift Exchange

August/September –

I have participated in a couple of gift exchanges on other websites in the past and really enjoyed them, so I wanted to host one on my site to share the fun with all of you! I love this theme because it reminds me of the end of summer, the last hurrah before school started. The sounds, smells and excitement in the air can not be found anywhere else but at the fair.

For those of you that would like to participate in the Gift Exchange for August/September the theme is:

Fair/Circus – create something that to you represents the State/Local Fair or the Circus. It can be made out of any medium that you as an artist specialize in or feel most comfortable working with.

Please be sure to go to the Gift Exchange tab above and sign up. Deadline for sign up will be August 5, 2016 and I will send out who you are matched up with on August 8, 2016.

Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.

Love, Sheila
