If you're able to spend money this season on gifts, a great place to start is by supporting local artists. Here are some suggestions:
JEWELRY AND CRAFTS:Actorcraft Fair
Erin Reiter, "Stem Jewels"
Marie Koch, Jewelry & Visual Art
Sarah Jane Nelson Millan Jewelry Design, Life is Rosey
American Modern Ensemble, Three Holiday CD's
Boyd's for Praise Company, "Joy in the Morning Light"
"phoenix", my cd of original songs
Please feel free to add to this list in the comments... No self promotion is shameless in this post!
Pass the art around!
