A few details …


1.  There is no cost to any artist or craftsperson to submit their work.

2.  All art or craft must be handmade in the United States or Canada, and be the original design of the creator.

3.  Submit one jpg image only of your work, emailed to: with a subject line that reads: Valentine’s Day Gift Guide.

4.  Include a description of the item (size, materials, etc) and the retail price, with your name and a link to your website.

5.  Make sure you submit an image with your work displayed and photographed to its best advantage. Poor photography will result in rejection of your submission.

6.  Deadline is midnight EST on Thursday, January 31, 2013.

7. All submissions are juried, and we will select the best representation for the Gift Guide. You will receive notification of acceptance or rejection after the deadline.
