Sunday Citar

Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.  ~Pablo Picasso
I entered 3 things into The Erie County Fair and won 2 Blue First Place ribbons.  I won for my santa ornament and my bird photo I took at the zoo.  I was pleasantly surprised when I walked though the creative arts building and saw that I won.  Still stunned and doing the happy dance.

Thank you for stopping by Sunday Citar! This blog quote meme was created by Fresh Mommy. You can stop by her blog to see the quotes and photos that she and everyone else is loving right now.



On a completely different note:
I am trying to reach 500 fans on facebook.  The top 3 people who refer the most friends will receive a $5, $10 or $15 gift certificate to my shop (including custom orders).  Make sure you tell them to post who sent them.  =)

Congratulations to you on the ribbons. I think the bird is doing the happy dance along with you and knew that you were going to win. Your Santa is adorable too. I so want to make sure I visit our state fair here.

Of course, I will mostly be going for the fair food!
