Congratulations, Ellie!

Ellie recently entered some artwork into the Salt Lake County Library’s Earth Friendly Creations Art Contest.
As part of the contest, she was required to use materials that would otherwise be thrown away. She decided to use a pizza box as the background and various sized lids as faces. She did all the work herself. I did squeeze out the paint and glue the lids on. But all of the painting, drawing, arrangement and the idea came from her.

We found out today that she earned an honorable mention! We are so proud that her hard work paid off. Congratulations to our little artist! Her artwork will be on exhibit at various libraries throughout the county this fall, and she was happy to learn that when the exhibits are over we'll be able to pick it up and keep it forever.

Way to go, Ellie Joy!

  1. That is so neat. Very creative, it will be fun for her to keep forever and remember. I still have some artwork that I made when I was younger, it is fun to look back and see it. I think one of mine got an award too. Very fun. Good job Ellie Belly.
