I won an award.

In September when we were at the Sidewalk Art Festival in Sioux Falls South Dakota I won an award for this piece.  It is called "Jabberwocky" and is part of my Alice's Garden Series.
The award was just an Honorable Mention but it made me feel great because there are about 125 artists and not that many awards.  Each artist is only allowed to enter one piece and I always seem to be scrambling to decide which piece to enter.  This year I had no problem deciding.  Hands down this was it. 
I have to also say that this piece found a new home while we were at the show in DesMoines IA last month.  A fabulous customer fell in love with it and I am sure she will have fun wearing it. 
Sorry that I haven't found time to tell you all this news before, we have just been busy, busy.  Now I get to think about what I might work on next.  What the new big piece will be.

Making beauty for its own sake is great, but sometimes official recognition feels good, too :) Congrats, Tanya, and you should be rightly proud of your accomplishment!
