Quite a few of you asked to see the hats that we made in our annual New Year's Eve Hat Making Contest. These are all of them except my hubby's Sacajawea hat, in which less than the required effort was expended, and which was not included here. He, nonetheless, felt that his "hat" should be awarded the prize for "Most Historic" hat. Ha! The rules of the contest are that the basic structure of the hat must be of newspaper, but that may be completely covered with other materials, if desired. We award prizes in categories such as Best Use of Newspaper, Best Use of Duct Tape, Most Creative, Wackiest, Most Fashionable, Best Use of Embellishments, Best Engineered, etc. Obviously, some of us (who will not be named) had more trouble than others in sizing the hat properly. Duncan's hat, second from the left on the bottom, actually had an object which spun when turned on. We've been doing this for many years and some members of the family (not me, obviously) have honed our skills to a fine degree. We have about two hours in which to create our hats. Hope you get a chuckle out of our efforts.
Thanks for your comments on my shot of the dancer. Much appreciated.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
