The Chicken Show Prizes

      Danielle Feldman's Why the Chicken Crossed the Road online show wrapped up the other day. While I did not do exceptionally well in the show I did place in several classes, won a good egg award for "it's all in the details" and Danielle should get a prize for fast shipping of prizes. I think she shipped as quickly as I do (which is really fast, lol!). My little box of prizes arrived yesterday and there are definitely some cool details I may need to eventually steal use for my own shows. 
      I really like how absolutely everything in the show followed the chicken theme. I don't have themes for my online shows, but I do love how the placings are little silhouettes with the placings on them. I use color codes stars (and dots) to do my placings. With these it is definitely impossible to not know what placing your prize is for. I like that. I also kind of like the idea of the themed awards (Danielle had them as "good egg" awards.) before the show you come up with different awards that are a bit out of the box, and then the prizes get awarded for that. I really like it. I have no idea what I would come up with, but maybe that is something I can figure out. I would not have won a tiny rosette in this show without the good egg award. And tiny rosettes are awesome! 
     Danielle also included a little goody bag with each entry. These are literally tiny bags with some cute things in them. I got a rubber chicken and a micro Schleich horse. I also happen to love tiny gift bags and I have saved every single one I ever got. 
     And I do love stickers! The chicken sticker is now on my laptop. That is not a spot I touch so it is likely to be there for a long time. The horse sticker is not fairing as well. But if it wears out I can replace it. I still have lots of stickers. 
    Thank you again Danielle for hosting such a cool online show! I love that even though I didn't do super well, I still got a box of prizes in the mail. If you hold another show I will try really hard to put in more effort!

This really makes my day! I'm so glad you enjoyed the prizes. Your shows and quick shipping were definitely an inspiration (and a challenge to meet!)
