For those of you (like Christian Homeschooler*wink*) who wanted to know how our county fair turned out and if we won any ribbons, behold, a fair post. 😀
First of all, these are the things I entered in the fair:
- Cross stitch cousins (from this post)
- Blue jay painting
- Clay dragon (see the Etsy listing here)
- Miniature clay doughnuts (from this post)
- Dorothy the doll (from this post)
- Clay fawn (I made this for my sister’s birthday a couple of years ago.)
- Clay rose earrings
- Clay rose necklace
- Painted rocks (from our room makeover)
- Quillow (Megan, my cousins, and I all took a sewing class for this!)
- Casey drawing
Sorry some of the things are kind of hard to see.
And of course I entered all the photos from this post. (Good gracious I use a lot of links in my posts.)
Here’s another picture of the quillow. Have you ever heard of a quillow? It’s basically a 2-in-1 blanket and quilt. You can unfold it to make a blanket, stuff the quilt into the pillowcase to make a pillow, or display it like this. It’s super neat! Thanks so much, Gram, for bringing us to the classes and helping me fix my quilt. ♥♥♥
This year was really fun and successful for me! I always love entering things in the fair, even though I don’t win ribbons for all my entries. It’s so exciting to search for your entries and look at other kids’ (and adults’) creations in the Exhibit Hall!
So, now for the ribbons I did win:
I won a ribbon (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) for every entry except for my drawings and the baseball photo! Woohoo! I also won a sweepstakes ribbon for the clay category (mostly since I entered so many things and sometimes they were the only entries in their category XD ). That was really fun.
All together I won:
12 first place ribbons, 3 second place ribbons, 6 third place ribbons, 1 sweepstake ribbon, aaaannd a total of $72.00! That’s one great thing about our fair – they don’t just give you ribbons, they pay you too! What could be better than that? XD
What is your fair like (if you have one)? Did you enter anything this year? (I’d love to see a picture, if you did!) Did you win any prizes?
P. S. GUYS THE BABY BUNNIES ARE SO CUTE I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE. Random truth.
