I Went To The Animal Fair

Last Fair post, I promise. Today was the only day participants could pick up their entries. I thought it would be a zoo, but when I arrived just after 2 there was no line, no waiting, nothing. At least 3/4 of the items in the Home Arts building were already gone.
It took about 45 minutes to gather the entries for the four of us (me, Sharon and two other Guild members), count the 33 ribbons we had coming, and collect our checks. Each first place earned $4, a second was $2 and a third brought $1.

Don't the ribbons look nice on the studio fireplace? And my earlier ribbon count was wrong; I received 12 ribbons for the 13 items I entered. Not bad at all!

At least AJ was impressed.

I am most impressed as well. Congrats on all the ribbons. I keep saying "next year" I will enter the fair and find that we are stationed in a different state each "next year" so...who knows...perhaps there really will be a next year. Keep up the awesome work.

Good job! I loved searching out your entries and seeing the ribbons on them. "Hey, I know her!" So Proud!
