I can hardly believe it’s August!! Where did summer go…??? In less than ten days ~~~~~ YIKES ~~~~ my 4-H Goat Project kids will be packing-up their dairy and market goats and heading to the Armada 140th Annual Agricultural Fair! The goats are a FIRST-time project for my 4-H families… and it has been a lot of fun and hard work! It has been a steep learning curve!
My goat project families all chose to purchase Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats with the exception of ONE family who purchased a pair of Boer-X market goats.
The baby goats had lots of fun… as did the girls TRYING to make them walk and ‘stacking’ them… before they got the flopsies!
I knew I wanted to do something special for my kids – they really were dedicated and worked hard…even the youngest Clover Sprout!!!
I went searching on-line for an ‘award’ for my kids. I REALLY like these!
I fell in love with this very talented artist on ETSY, Handy Maiden — but, sadly, can’t afford $$$ these sweet AWARDS.
So, alas… I came up with an idea and decided to make my own version of 1st Place Ribbon for ALL my 4-H’ers!
Each ‘AWARD’ mimics (more-or-less) each of my 4-H’ers little goaties!
Too much fun!
I hope they love them as much as I had fun creating these little goaties!! It’s the thought that counts, right?
All you need is polymer clay, wool felt, embroidery floss, acrylic paint and satin polyurethane sealer… and itty bitty fingers!
Like I said, my 4-H’ers are all winners in my mind!! WOOT WOOT!!! Way to go ladies!! Good luck at Fair!!
