Day 1 of filming is complete. Given we were hoping to shoot 6 episodes today and only got through 5, I still feel like we filmed all 20. Its been so long since I have done this I had almost forgotten what hard work it is being perky for 8 hours. Today we shot Create Your Own Candy Bag, Alternative Pumpkin Art, 3D Pumpkin Faces, Fun Party Favors and Halloween Centerpieces. We painted plastic fruit black, turned T-shirts into bags and used polymer clay to turn a plain pumpkin into Mr. Potato head. Turns out not only are these little webisodes going to be on HGTV.com looks like you will also be able to see them on AOL and Yahoo.
I am a little fried this evening and only have the energy for a bath, my left over bake potato from Jason’s Delis and Law and Order. That being the case instead of blogging about something interesting I’ll share a few links with you of people who blogged about me recently. There are interviews, mentions, contests and more. I got so many google alerts today about all the blogs I felt like a bloglebrity! Thanks tons to everyone for the mentions.
I wrote to all the blogs that I mentioned in the Everybody’s Blogging for the Weekend section of my book and some of those blogs were nice enough to mention me back. I was in the news feed on Décor 8, Whip Up Gave a shout out and on Fly I was the link of the day!
I didn’t even know that My Craftivity was having a contest that involved a free copy of The Naughty Secretary Club: the Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry until I got a Google alert about being mentioned on Craft Gossip’s Indie Crafts. Speaking of contests Ponoko announced the winners of their 10-Day Design Challenge: Jewelry for Summer that I helped judge. I was sad some of my favorites didn’t make it into the top 10 because of technical default, but I did love the 3 winners pieces!
Ok I need to get my scripts read and a whole lot beauty rest, the executives from the network are coming to the filming tomorrow.
