I have always been fairly nervous about showing my artwork to real public (read not online) but I decided to go with it as this fair has a real laid back attitude about it. It's not a stuffy art show.
I submitted 9 entries altogether, 4 photos and 5 crafty things, and I got ribbons on all my entries and one photo was even featured in their main diplay! Exciting! Admittedly though, for some of the categories I was the only entry so took automatic first place. Hahaha. I guess strategic category selection plays a big key.
|Here are a few photos of my entries.|
