More about the AHA group...

We're three years old, and today we launch our marketplace to expand the horizons for you, our collectors!! Our artist members offer fresh one-of-a-kind, heirloom-quality seasonal and holiday theme art---from hooked rugs, to whimsical papier-mâché characters, cloth dolls, folk art, fantasy art, paintings, one-of-a-kind ornaments, artist patterns and more! This is brought to you, directly from the artist's studio to your home year round, made with you in mind, by award-winning and respected artists.

Visit American Holiday Artists Studio Marketplace at http://www.ahaartistsstudio.com/,. Opt in and subscribe to our mailing list and receive our free monthly newsletter-you'll keep up with new monthly-artist members, new work, artist challenges and future events. New arrivals featured the 25th of each month.

And for weekly updates, drop in at our blog: AmericanHolidayArtists.com

To launch us on our artistic journey with you, we are taking the theme of The Christkindlemarket in Europe where all things are possible for the holidays.............

You stroll among the tents where artists have displayed their work, so stroll through our artists' blogs, leave a comment on each one, and perhaps you will be a winner of original artwork! All you have to do is leave a comment, and each artist will announce the winner on September 12th. The artists have all silently picked a random number of a comment, so if your number comes up, you will be the happy recipient of their creation. It's that simple, and that much fun! So settle back, relax and begin your stroll. The list below shows you the participating artists in our market blog giveaway. You can do your hopping thing, leave comments, and have a chance to win fabulous original work from some terrific artists! So, leave me a comment, continue your journey, and enjoy our launch! Thanks for looking!

The little Jack O' Lanterns are adorable but the cat (as always) stole my heart.

Speaking of cats, I'm looking forward to hearing Nadia's story (crossing my fingers I won't cry, even though I know that's not gonna work).

Bless you Carrie and your dear sweet cat rescuing heart.
