Ahem. Im being corrected as I type.. Jumeirah encouraged me to enter after winning her colour comp a few weeks ago. She told me that it didnt matter if I didnt win but that I should at least try. They do have a lot of comps on through the show from cow/chicken/goat judging, and the hall has drawing, quilting, preserves, cakes, doll making, woodwork, kids art, needlepoint, flowers, bonsais.. etc etc etc. I thought it would give me a chance to get a few photos out there and see what happens.
Judging took place last wednesday and I didnt hear anything so I figured nothing had come of it ( I didnt expect to win anything, thought I might get a commendation or something but really didnt think it would happen).
Tonight we went to the show straight from school and headed to see how cool it would be to see a photo of mine on a wall amongst other great clickers. I rounded the corner to see this :)
I am a bit excited really. I've never really done anything that had won me much before ( actually I dont think Ive EVER won something for something I actually did!)so it was a bit of a shock :) I won First Place for "children and their relationships", Most outstanding photo and Champion overall :) Pretty good hey!
Today we did one of the funniest crafts Ive ever done and was realy well enjoyed by the little chicks.
I started by printing off some photos or each of our family, ittook ages to find one of me... Im NEVER in them :(
I gave Amahli and Jared some "people" sticks to decorate with pastels. They tried to draw shoes and shirts, but mostly it was more interesting to see what I was going to do with the faces :)
