State Fair

I was a little apprehensive when I went to pick up my fair entries and 3 of the workers said..."So you're Donna Jackson".  Is this good or bad?  Did I do something wrong?  What did that mean?????

Well, it meant that I had won the most blue ribbons in the fair and I would get a little bonus $$ prize for doing so!  I was totally thrilled! 

Then they got to Amy ~ and unofficially, she won the most blue ribbons for the youth category and she would be getting the same little bonus $$ prize for youth.  We are doing the Happy Dance!

So we are busy preparing for next year!  Since we both like to craft anyway, this isn't a problem, issue, or burden!

Happy Crafting~

Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
