Artella's First Annual Secret Sprites of Spring

A sure cure for the winter doldrums!

Another "anonymous creative exchange" opportunity to share your creativity with someone else.

Did you participate in Artella’s Holiday Mystery Muse, and just love it so much you want to do it again? Did you miss out on the Mystery Muse? Are you new here, and never heard of the Mystery Muse? In any case, you have an opportunity to participate in a Spring secret creativity exchange, because Artella is announcing the Secret Sprites of Spring!

If you sign up as a Secret Sprite, you commit yourself to send at least THREE creative offerings to your Sprite-ee. These offerings can be anything -- a poem you have written, an ATC (artist's trading card), a tiny piece of needlework, a sketch -- anything. The idea is to be a generous, loving community of words and art, sharing our creations with other people.

The firm deadline for signing up is Thursday, February 10, at midnight EST. At that time, the sign-up form will be closed. Assignments will be made and emailed to the Sprites on or before Valentine’s Day, February 14. This means that your first offering could (if you wanted) have a Valentine-y theme (or not!). Your three gifts should be sent between February 14 and May 14 -- three months to send three gifts.

If you need more information, or have questions not answered here, you can email Fred (he will be our co-ordinator) at fhintze@crosswind.net.

We want everyone to participate, but PLEASE do not sign up unless you are willing to commit yourself to sending three gifts to your Sprite-ee. Of course, we know that things come up – in that case, PLEASE let Fred ( fhintze@crosswind.net) know as soon as you can, so that we can rescue your Sprite-ee with an Angel Sprite.
