Back to School Inspiration Contest by IBH ArtFire Guild!

Seems like summer is just getting started and already the kids are heading back to school.  For many, that means a bit more time alone to create!  So, in celebration of fall and the start of an exciting new school year for so many, the It’s Better Handmade Artfire Guild is having a contest!

Each participant created a special piece to celebrate the start of a new school year and it is your job to pick your favorite.  Just to make things a bit more interesting, if you post a comment (please be sure to register with your contact email information) you will be entered to win a fabulous prize as well.  A random poster will be entered into the drawing to win a Sea Glass pendant wrapped in sterling silver provided by Makin the Best Of It.

About the Author:

A life long crafter, I found my passion in painting on glass, especially toasting glasses for brides, as well as chainmaille jewelry in between chasing my two boys to various sports events and clubs. This passion for handmade led my husband and I to start the and our passion for getting other handmade artists seen no matter where they sell led to acquiring It's Better Handmade! My hope is that by working with other creative people more buyers will come to understand the true value of handmade.
