This is my local hardware team where I am always greeted with a smile (well maybe a bit of a giggle too today, but they know who  I am and what I am about)  I especially love it when they hold “LADIES NIGHTS”, a lot of fun and very informative nights with a lot of champagne flowing!!

Be on the look out for the next one!

I dusted off AUDREY from my collection (you can view the collection HERE) for this trip to town and a fab fascinator I made from a men’s tie and loads of feathers!

 

They are very supportive of charities you can donate HERE

The results of the AG ART AWARDS and the whole story!!

Well another competition done and dusted with a lot of feedback about my design and although I didn’t win the ultimate prize and came third in my category, I walk away a winner in my eyes and of the eyes of the people around me considering I made such an impact to the general public that I took out

THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD!!!
There are a few categories to the competition
Avant Garde
Traditional
Landcare
Under 21
People’s choice
It went as I thought it may, when I started this dress I had 2 designs in my head, and knowing that ‘Shot Gun Wedding’ was a more ‘traditional’ entry, I took the risk of entering it into the Avant Garde section to win the big prize hehe, who wouldn’t, it is a trip to NZ to compete in the field days over there.
And although I didn’t win, the judges had some words for me through one of the organizers of the competition, I was told that they were super impressed with the design, especially the jewellery but felt it was more a ‘traditional entry’, so who knows what the outcome would have been if I had have forgone the chance of winning a trip!
I can’t be disappointed though, The people’s choice is a great honor and I have so much support from all of you, it is quite overwhelming and my talent is getting noticed more each day through things like this.
BRING ON NEXT YEAR!! (you should see the inside of my head right now hehe)
Here is my design  on the runway…

Even before I got to see the runway show and was browsing the lifestyle pavilion, looking at all that WA has to offer, including amazing kitchen gadgets, beautiful skin care, ‘out of this world’ handmade furniture, exceptional Australian made dolls (which I know 4 little girls will get from Nanna, you are so lucky my 2 nieces and my 2 daughters – I WANT ONE!) and soooo much more that I think a whole 2 or more blog posts should be dedicated to the Dowerin Field Days and a big urge to anybody who hasn’t been to come along next year to see what all of the fuss is, this year was a record breaker for the amount of exhibitors!
But, back to what I was saying hehe, I met a couple selling ARBONNE cosmetics, a vegan all natural skin care, but while I was talking to them I was telling them about the dress and they had seen it the night before and were amazed by it and asked me to talk to them later about possibly putting it down the runway at the next Wedding Expo they are a part of organising……
You haven’t seen the last of it!!!!
It will also be featured at the art exhibition in our home town along with last years dress.

I have to say, this competition is a great thing to have in our state and the entries were a little sparse compared to last years, so I am urging you and anyone you know to take the plunge and have a go, it is a lot of fun and great prizes involved and lets face it, I would rather have more competition than not have the competition at all.
You will be hearing more from me about this working up to next years AG ART AWARDS as I would love to keep this great opportunity going. More information here.
So there you have it, it wasn’t overall winner but I am winning with the public!! and that is more than what I bargained for I have a few more jobs for this collection of ‘nuts and bolts’ (and more) as well as my first years entry, more details on where you can see them in the near future.
Until my next crazy adventure – which won’t be too far away, I promise you – don’t forget to tune in for the next chapter in “The Secrets of the Forest (with a lace addiction)”
