Fair Results and Another Win

We went to the fair Tuesday night after I got off work. In the art exhibit, I placed first in watercolor, second in drawing, second in mixed media, and third in computer graphic design or illustration. I took fourth place in the experimental category of photography.  I am happy. :)

I also realized today that I forgot to blog about winning seven free ACEOs in July's 7 Card Draw on Etsy.   The 7 Card Draw is an Etsy team that I am a member of and at the end of every month, one lucky person who posts to the team discussion forum is selected to win seven free ACEOs from other members of the team.  Click on the link above to see full details on how it works.  Because of illness and being busy, I didn't actually find out I'd won in July until August 11th.  I'll post a picture of what I chose after I get them all in the mail.

Entering the Fair

Well, it's almost midnight here and I am a bit tired.  I took a vacation day from work because today was the day to take entries to the county fair.  I entered four pieces of art--a watercolor painting, a drawing, a mixed media artwork, and a computer art piece.  I also entered the photography competition for the first time, putting in six photos.  It took me most of the day to print and mount photos and frame my art.  But I didn't have to wait long to enter my stuff.  I missed entering the fair last year so it was great to be able to get some things together for this year. 

Judging of art and photos is tomorrow morning.  Not much prize money is involved, but I'm hoping to win something.
