Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth June 16, 2009

 The greatest outdoor show on earth, is about to embark once again on July 3-12, the Calgary Stampede!   My first exposure to the competition of the stampede was shortly after I was married and entered my original cross stitch designs into the exhibition, anyone can enter no matter where you live!  

Oh no, I just discovered that you can now enter online, and the deadline is June 19, 2009!  !  You  have to had created the craft within the last 12 months, and there is only a limit of 2 entries per person, and each must be in their own grouping.  It’s even open to all ages! Just check out the western showcase, creative arts & crafts:  and now there is a division and class for jewelry, too!http://www.westernshowcase.com/registration.html

Yikes!! You know what this means, I got to get busy, perhaps, I will create one of my original semi precious/silver belt buckle in….but I have to create it, first…and it only gives me 3 days to decide!!

Some years, though, I could give it up and escape the hussle and bussle, and other years tradition remains, the vendors of the gadgets get a bit of my pocket money.   As a child, at the end of the school year, I was more excited to get my free entry ticket that was in my report card envelope (than the actual report card)  to the CNE (the Canadian National Exhibition) or known as “the ex”, http://www.theex.com   Do you have an opinion, do you like these exhibitions or would rather leave town?  Fill out the poll below!  Yahoo!

    I entered Miranda’s lace bubblegum dress. Erica entered her goose clock she made in construction. Watch for them when you browse the exhibits. You can’t miss the bubblegum dress and I’m pretty sure there will only be 1 canada goose clock, hee hee.
