OK, this is a call out to all my artistic readers, and there are more than a few.

Heather Armstrong of Dooce.com (the internet’s most popular personal blog) is looking for submissions from independent artists for her Holiday gift guides. These will get incredible exposure from motivated buyers. If you are a craftsperson who makes something that would fit, please don’t hesitate – SUBMIT! 🙂

Here is the relevant text from the original post:

I am in the process of putting together a holiday gift guide, one for women like myself, one for geeky husbands, one for infants, and one for five-year-old girls who think life is totally unfair. Maybe just some coal for her.

I’m looking for handmade goods, products from small businesses, and would love to see unique things from independent artists. If you’ve seen my style section and think I’d like what you have to offer, please send me a link to your stuff at style at dooce dot com. Note, I do not accept compensation for featuring products on this website, I truly just want to introduce my audience to things I like and think they would enjoy as well.

Please don’t send me naked pictures of yourself, I don’t have any more room in that file.

Good luck to you!
