Sharing is caring!

The Theme for Artsy-Craftsy-August is stick fun
You can stick anything to anything. Glue however has to be an important part of the craft.
This month we have a sponsor who loves to follow the artsy-craftsy challenge but has chosen to remain anon.
Here is what the sponsor had to say…
Love your blog, your enthusiasm and how you get everyone jazzed up to participate in each monthly Artsy-Craftsy challenge. I really enjoy looking at all the entires and voting on each month’s contest. Am very art-challenged – so don’t participate – but I read and relish each one of your posts

I would like to sponsor the gifts for a contest – my way of participating in this wonderful endeavour that you tirelessly and sincerely put your efforts into. I hope its OK for a non-craft-maker to sponsor gifts.

Dear Anon sponsor, I love having you on board and I’m sure the participants are going to love it too. Thank you for this lovely gesture.
Here is what the four lucky winners stand to win..
