On February 2 at the Del Ray Artisans "House of Cards 2" opening, I won the "YIPPEE! Cardist Award." The winning card has been framed and is being sold in a raffle (tickets are $1; that's a steal). The card features four photos: Bea Arthur, Maya Angelou, Rudy Valle, and a fork. Each photo is sewn onto a fabric square and then onto the card itself. On top of the photos, with glitter glue, I have pasted these words: Bea Maya Valle Tine."
I have never won a "Yippee!" award, but feel much more fulfilled now that it's happened.
