What a week I've had. I've just come home from the most amazing experience! I LOVE MY JOB! I have the best job in the world! Making stuff for a living is fun - but being able to share my passion of crafts with all of you is even funner (is that even a word?) and meeting and making new friends is even better! I'm on cloud 18 - which is way way way above cloud 9! (and over to the left a little)
Last Friday I had the privilege of being a guest presenter on Create and Craft TV a division of Ideal World located in Peterborough England.
Here's a view from my set looking over to what's was currently on air. The room has several sets in it.
Leonie and I had met briefly several years ago when I was demonstration beads at Stitches. It was such a quick meeting though, I didn't know if she'd remember.
We had a fab time!! Here we are about to go on air! (No pressure - no pressure at all with *live* TV)
She is such a natural at what she does and she made the whole experience so exciting and enjoyable. Right now she has just introduced me on the show :)
Love this picture of her as it really captures her personality. She really has a true connection with the viewers and I'm sure lots and lots of fans (can you say *starstruck* - I am, just a little!)
Here's a little snippit of the monitor in front of us. The top screen shows what is *on air* and the bottom shows what's coming up next. :) (if I show up in the bottom screen - I know I need to smile and get ready!)
During the show I demonstrated how to use the pasta machine, bead rollers and other bead making tools to make a variety of beads like those shown below (which I pinched from Leonie's blog)
The feed back from the show was great and everyone at the studio made it such a pleasure to be there!
They even re-ran the show!! Hopefully I'll be back soon!
