My Trip to The Marin County Fair

I delivered my first batch of projects to The Marin County Fair. A big thanks to my BFF Melissa for helping me get them there in good shape. Now hopefully the Fair Staff can handle the cradle for the brides bouquet!!!

Here comes,the bride!

Another piece for the Marin County Fair. I must admit this was a challenge. Picking the colors and the arrangement was a little stressful. I wanted to make sure I got it right and wouldn’t have to take it apart after the stems were wrapped with a beautiful pink satin ribbon
Here Comes the Bride!

A Rose by any other name…..

All that’s missing is the smell! 18 long-stemmed red roses “fresh’ from the florist. I’ve been working on this for the Marin County Fair and is on hold nail July 5th. I worked hard on creating so,etching realistic and I feel I accomplished that.
On to,the next project!

Fair Prep Part 1

In a moment of confidence–and apparent weakness, I have entered FOUR projects in the Marin County Fair. That falls into the “what was I thinking” category. Nonetheless, I have made the commitment and I’m moving forward. My first project is in the Fine Arts Category, which is a juried contest. We will see if I make the cut. Since it’s fine arts, I’m going for something as realistic as I can manage. The plan is to create a bouquet of Valentine’s Day roses. I have a few buds and a few blossoms made, but they will need foliage. This is where I am so far…..Rosebud




Happy Monday!

It was a busy weekend. The rest of the veggie garden is in the ground–yay for that. I love watching the vegetables as they come popping out of the ground and in a few months, we will be eating the wonderful bounty. I can’t wait. I did have an opportunity to spend a little time in the studio, but not a lot.  I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided on my entries for the Marin County Fair. I entered 4 categories including Fine Art. For the fine art piece, I think I’ll try to do something very classic and hopefully a surprise to the jurists of the competition. I have some ideas, but haven’t made any decisions. I’ll post more as it comes to fruition.
In the meantime, happy crafting!
