Good Weekend!

Hi all! So despite the flooding of our house, it has still been a spectacular weekend. Our carpet is still damp and we have one large hole in the ceiling (the roof is fixed though, so it won't leak) but other than that everything is back in order. 

This week was our annual fair and I entered six total pieces into it and they all placed in their respective categories. And then this morning, I discovered my main painting I had at the fair featured in the newspaper! Also, Art Doll Quarterly's fall issue is out and my Pumpkin Heads are in it! Go check it out! I have not seen it yet since my town does not carry that magazine, but my copy should be in the mail this week! I am so excited to see it!

This was the big one I took to the fair. It is about 5 feet across and 3 feet high.
It took second place for the General Category.

This morning I woke up and saw it here:


Here it is in my living room; it really brought the room together! All I have to do is put my cryptid drawings in those 4 frames and I have a piece for above the Assasins Creed poster and the wall will be complete. Well, until I get more stuff. haha



I entered Douglas and he took 2nd place for the Animal Category.

I took my drawing and scrapbook paper for my shower invites and mounted and framed it and it took first place for Animals!
(I plan on getting a tea set for that table!)

And finally, I entered my Zombie Bigfoot and Yeti as a set in "Other" for Textiles and the regular Yeti and Bigfoot as a set in "Plush Animals" as a set and they both took first place.

So I am pretty ecstatic over all the results!
