Yesterday was opening day at the fair. It took me over an hour to get in due to a crazy new traffic funneling system that was put in place. Had I only known, I could have come from a different direction (all roads lead to the fair!) and not been detoured in a slow snail-like line of cars. Ugh!
The good part is that you can get in for a buck on opening day. The size of the crowd really isn't too bad either, which surprises me. I was only there for a short while since I had to be back in time to run Mom's After School Taxi service -lol! Just enough time there tho to enjoy roasted corn on the cob (yum!) and do a quick browse thru the arts & crafts building.
As you might've guessed I entered some SB stuff. This year there were LOTS of great entries - and lots more than last year. It was cool to recognize so many names on entries. My mom entered for the first time ever (and took a red ribbon --wooo hooo! You go, Mom!) My sister also entered several items (more ribbons -congrats!) And there were lots of yummy entries from my fellow good time girls as well as some of our customers. All in all, a great showing of awesome SB art and isn't that great to see? Early SB displays at the fair were very limited and the pages (if I may say so) were very conservative. It's terrific to have a varied and substantial display of creativity. Sheesh, better step down off the ole soapbox now.
On a related note... there were lots of ribbons on all the entries noted above, but two especially delightful ribbons were the orangey-gold "best of show" ribbons that went to two particular good time girls: drum roll.... Susan Bugelli, an SGT DT member took the rosette for stamping art and... TOOT! I took one for SBing. Woo hoo!
