Just Be Happy

Yay! Yay! Yay!

Today was a big day for me, it was the fair opening day and I just couldn't wait for my husband to get home, so we could go and check out the "Home Arts" department and see if any of my entries were awarded and the answer is YES!

I am so happy to announce that I got not only 1st place with this top but it got the Judges craftmanship award as well!
My fat bottom bag got a second place ribbon:

And my ruffled scarf got a 3rd place.

Not bad, huh?
I'm sorry for the quality of the pictures, I know it's really poor, but I brought my camera without the memory card (dumb!), so I had to take the pictures with my phone, oh well... nothing really bothers me, I'm so happy!


  1. Congratulations, Alessandra!! I don't know what else to say, somehow I am impressed by your awards but the truth is I shouldn't because everyday I see what are you capable of. You deserve them.

    I'm very happy for you too! :-D

  2. Fantastic, well done. How rewarding for you!
