Bringing Home the Ribbons

June 21, 2011

The county fair is over.  The prizes were awarded and by some miracle I managed to rake in a few first places, seconds, third, fourth, and honorable mention. But the big shocker was ‘best of show’ for the garden path sign my husband and I made from old chair legs, scrape wood and a rusty coffee can.

Although I am pleased with my little winnings, this isn’t a brag post as much as it is an invitation to unearth your hidden talent, to try your hand at a craft you’ve been admiring. I’ve interviewed people who, on a fluke, picked up a paintbrush, a camera, and a wood burning tool and ended up discovering their passion. So follow your heart and start creating.
