In addition to early shopping we will also be hosting a Bloggers/Facebook Fan Ball

Wear a pageant sash that represents your blog, business, fan page or just you, and meet other bloggers, facebook fans, and new junkin friends.

We will be awarding prizes for the best  sash

We will also be awarding prizes for the best dressed

Come dressed in your high society interpretation of Ruffles, Rust or Ruffles and Rust.

Someone will be crowned Ruffles & Rust Queen for the best overall outfit and sash combo.

  I have my dress, now I’m making my sash with the name of my blog. 

I had some cardstock letters, so I thought I should paint them gray, and then add a little glitter, attach to a ribbon…

But when I moved the letters I had painted, I realized I had premade sash just ready to go…hmmm I don’t suppose I would win the prize.

Let’s Talk About Why I Haven’t Been Blogging…

I’ve said it before but it so true, when I am busy doing fun exciting things there isn’t time to blog.   When I have free time, I have nothing fun or exciting to blog about.  That is all to say, I have been having lots of fun and no time to blog, heck I haven’t had time to even sleep I’ve been having so much fun. 

It was a beautiful day at the Barn House Season Finale.

Fall Show at Monticello’s.

  And a couple of days after that I packed my bags and headed to Lincoln City for Art Camp.

What a great time I had with my 37 new best friends.
