My 15 Minutes of Fame… well, actually about 6 minutes – lol…

Today was the day! I have been looking forward/dreading it for about 6 weeks. I woke up so nervous, but was excited at the same time. It ended up being a wonderful experience – I am so glad I didn’t chicken out!

My mom went with me which was great. Between the two of us, we cannot find out way anywhere! Of course we got lost in the parking garage! We ended up wandering around until we found a security guy who took pity on us and showed us where to go.

I meet Brooke and Darin – they are so nice!!

And the segment went really well. I forgot what to say a few times, but — what can you do? I am really glad I did it! And I get to do it again next week! Now I am excited rather than terrified. Yay!

I did find a wonderful tool that I am going to ask for when my birthday rolls around — The Big Shot!!! I borrowed it from my friend Jenifer — she’s a Stampin’ Up Rep. It is the coolest thing. I didn’t realize that it can cut fabric — like 8 layers at a time. So fun!

So I made a few new burlap Spring wreaths using it. I love it! The flower shapes are so cute! If you want to make one, the tutorial is HERE.

And now back to real life. Your probably wondering if I’m going to make any more projects… Yes! I have a really fun one I am going to work on this weekend. I think you’re going to love it!
And don’t forget, the Bobbity Boo Children’s Clothing giveaway ends Friday night at midnight. And the Weekend Wrap Up Party starts on Saturday — with a Gorilla Glue Giveaway for those that enter. There were some fabulous projects last week that I am going to spotlight – can’t wait!!

    Ok, I did not go through and read the comments, but look at that first picture of you and the TV lady. You could be sisters. Same exact smile, facial structure, different color hair, but really, I though it was your sister at first.

    GREAT JOB! So thrilled for you.

  2. ~Audrey ~ says:

    And how much is "the big slice"? I couldn't find it on your friend Jenifer's website. That is a cool tool!

  3. ~Audrey ~ says:
