The deadline for the Tennessee State Fair has been listed; there’s only a month left to get your craft on! As part of Son One’s entry process, I created an online poll between these two pictures he took at Sweet Creek Farms in Alabama:
Turkey won by a landslide; I was surprised! I kind of liked the roof supports in the background of the peacock as a backdrop, but the turkey was centered and traditional. I'd say my friends steered him in the right direction.
He’s a competitive little fellow. Last year’s third place win was hard on him at first, and we had to really stress that he was competing against far older kids. I love browsing all the kids’ drawings and photos to see what they thought to make pictures of. Of course, it’s not my contest- in the fabric arts, I’m pretty vicious.
The Fall brings the beginning of school and the grueling school shopping, so if you want to show your stuff, get going! The contests, rules, and entry information can be found here:
