Hooray!! It's time for the Clayart Stay-At-Home Mug Exchange!! If you're
interested in participating, please follow the instructions below:

1) Send your name, mailing address, and preferred email address OFF LIST
to, preferably with MUG EXCHANGE in the subject

2) Make your mug, candleholder, vase, bowl, or whatever you would like
to send.

3) Watch your email & Clayart for updates, and make sure your name is on
the list of participants when posted.

4) In late February / early March, you will be sent an off list email

by March 15, 2001, please email Be ready to ship
your exchange piece by the NCECA dates of March 28-31 (not in early
April, not sometime over the summer, but the week ending March 31, 2001)

This should be a fun exchange for all!!

Additional Notes:

a chance to participate.

5) I am happy to create a web page for photos of the mugs that are
exchanged, as Chris did last year, if they are sent as either photo
prints or SMALL jpgs.
