Good Enough To Share!

The last few days have been pretty exciting around here. The day after I returned from El Paso, we received our monthly Texas Neighbor newspaper. It is published by the Texas Farm Bureau. I had entered a photo contest a few months back and the results were in. I didn't win BUT they did publish my photo! Out of hundreds on entries, they only published 12 in the paper. Mine was under the "Just Good Photos...thought they were well worth the sharing." How cool is that!




Then the husband and I went to the local craft gallery to rent a booth. We painted it on Friday and stocked it full of stuff this morning. It's 3'x4' which turned out to be quite small once we started to put everything in it. But I think it turned out good.


Sorry the picture's not very good, I had to use my blackberry. Can you believe I didn't have a camera with me?! Geez! There are also framed prints on the left wall. I have notecards on the ledge and mouse pads hanging in front. Let the buying begin!!

You are on your way! I like how you have the display set up!

I'm with everyone else . . . I think the judges were probably intoxicated!
