Fairly Fun! {{Fair Entries 2016}}

For those of you (like Christian Homeschooler*wink*) who wanted to know how our county fair turned out and if we won any ribbons, behold, a fair post. 😀

First of all, these are the things I entered in the fair:

fair stuff 1.jpg

  1. Cross stitch cousins (from this post)
  2. Blue jay painting
  3. Clay dragon (see the Etsy listing here)
  4. Miniature clay doughnuts (from this post)
  5. Dorothy the doll (from this post)
  6. Clay fawn (I made this for my sister’s birthday a couple of years ago.)
  7. Clay rose earrings
  8. Clay rose necklace
  9. Painted rocks (from our room makeover)
  10. Quillow (Megan, my cousins, and I all took a sewing class for this!)
  11. Casey drawing

Sorry some of the things are kind of hard to see. :/

And of course I entered all the photos from this post. (Good gracious I use a lot of links in my posts.)


Here’s another picture of the quillow. Have you ever heard of a quillow? It’s basically a 2-in-1 blanket and quilt. You can unfold it to make a blanket, stuff the quilt into the pillowcase to make a pillow, or display it like this. It’s super neat! Thanks so much, Gram, for bringing us to the classes and helping me fix my quilt. ♥♥♥


This year was really fun and successful for me! I always love entering things in the fair, even though I don’t win ribbons for all my entries. It’s so exciting to search for your entries and look at other kids’ (and adults’) creations in the Exhibit Hall!

So, now for the ribbons I did win:

Sheesh, Allison, what a mess. XD

I won a ribbon (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) for every entry except for my drawings and the baseball photo! Woohoo! I also won a sweepstakes ribbon for the clay category (mostly since I entered so many things and sometimes they were the only entries in their category XD ). That was really fun.

All together I won:

12 first place ribbons, 3 second place ribbons, 6 third place ribbons, 1 sweepstake ribbon, aaaannd a total of $72.00! That’s one great thing about our fair – they don’t just give you ribbons, they pay you too! What could be better than that? XD

What is your fair like (if you have one)? Did you enter anything this year? (I’d love to see a picture, if you did!) Did you win any prizes?

  1. Wow! That’s a lot of ribbons! Congratulations! 😀
    What are your photographs printed on? It looks like some sort of canvas or something.
    So you painted that blue jay? It looks so good! What was your inspiration for it?

    1. Thanks so much!
      They were ordered and printed on normal glossy photo paper, but the fair requires you to either matte them or tape them to foam board (which I did).
      Yep, I sure did! Thanks sooo much! ♥ I made a mini-painting when I was planning for a bluejay pencil pal Etsy order, and decided to make a bigger version of it. I just looked off of a picture. 🙂

  2. Hooray for the county fair! Next year I hope to enter more than just a cake. You won so many ribbons this year!

    And yes the bunnies are adorableness overload! I may or may not have flooded my Instagram with bunny pictures…


    1. Yes! Thanks, Rapunzel!
      Oh yeah, your cake was fantastic! It looked like it took forever to decorate. You won first prize for that, right?
      Ha ha, yes! It’s really kind of hard not to be overwhelmed with a flood of cuteness. XD


      1. You’re welcome! 🙂
        Yes, I did win first prize for my cake. It took a while to make, but it was really fun!
        I know! I still haven’t recovered from the exposure to all that cuteness yet. 😉


    1. Ooh, that sounds really neat! Good for you for making a quilt! To make smileys you type “:” and “)” together, like this : ) (But without the space.) You can also do : D, X D, : P, and : ( (without the spaces). Have fun playing around with it!


  3. Wow, congrats! I’ve never entered anything at the fair, but now I really want to! I just wasn’t interested before, but now it seems like a good way to get your work out!


  4. Super cool! I’m so happy for you winning all of that! The Lord really blessed you! Our fair was pretty fun, but I didn’t enter anything, which was terrible since when we went I wished I had entered! LOL! I actually have never heard of a quillow but it looks and sounds lovely! :D:D


    1. Thanks so much, Livy! Yes, He most certainly did! ♥ I’m glad you had fun at your fair – maybe next year you’ll be able to enter something. 🙂
      Thanks! It is!
