The biggest and best day of the year for small business is almost here..
and we’re SO excited to announce an opportunity for your child to SHINE!
Gypsy Spoonful is pleased to present our FIRST annual Small Business Children’s Art Contest
We believe in encouraging children’s creativity, and we also believe wholeheartedly in small business. Marry the two and the idea for this awesome contest was born!
Living a creative life can inspire us to continually live better, create more, and be more true to ourselves and our visions. It can also remind us to nurture our children’s creativity.
