I got an award in the BBAAs

Post by Ruth on Mon Nov 24, 2008 4:35 pm

Hi All ,
I feel a bit weird posting this . Yesterday was very surreal :cyclops: I loved meeting up with some truly lovely BBNers (sorry I missed you Elanor !)
and the BBAA nominees were gorgeous and diverse . I thought my little miniature looked totally lost on the judging tables .... but I got a 1st place
in the Single Mini category !!!! affraid Very Happy I now have a lovely light-up award ....I'm afraid I must have looked a bit stunned though ! Shocked
I also received a 3rd place for my Miniature Group bears Very Happy Very Happy I never expected to go home with 2 (let alone any Very Happy )
Congratulations to Sue , Julie , and Pauline ; all of us must have big grins LOL

It was such a shame that the show itself was so very quiet , but I can't help feeling up in the clouds today ... hope you don't mind me going on - I actually find it quite difficult
to talk about achievement type things :joker:

Anyway , Huggies ladies ,
Ruth :heart: :heart:

A huge congrats Ruth...................I didn't like to post the results, didn't want to steal others thunder

I was so sorry I didn't know who you were and we only had chance to say a quick hello

Your bears were totally delightful :heart:

Hi Ruth,

I thought your entries where beautiful , you should feel proud to shout it from the roof tops, well done.
I do think it was a shame the show was'nt better and that gone are the days when at the awards you got flowers, champagne etc, its a big deal to win, I am slightly concerned that my report on the show may have sounded a little negative, but to be clear by no means was I reflecting on peoples work, I was reflecting on the poor show and that I feel people make so much effort with the awards it would be nice to have a wonderful show to present them at.

I would have chosen yours to win, they are just so tiny, how do you do it! You had such tough competition in cat 6, all the entries where so amazing and I would of given prizes to all who entered that category if it was up to me.

Awwww , thanks so much Elanor *hugs*
I haven't ever been to the show before but ...... probably I shouldn't even say this .... the two things don't seem
to fit together Neutral I really felt for that lovely lady who had come all the way from Italy . There is a wonderful , friendly positivity
amongst beary people which is part of the joy to me , but I think we all had the same thoughts . There was a real tinge of sadness
and , well , worry wasn't there ?

Your lovely feedback means such a lot to me ; what a great bunch of ladies y'all cheers
Cheers + Hugs ,

Ruth xx Smile
