What a moment…

May 9, 2007

I have been a fan of Martha Stewart for over 20 years and I never thought I would get to talk to Martha much less to Martha Live on her show. What a fun experience and one I will never forget. Karen and Emily two of Martha’s producers were really nice and talk about making sure I was prepared! They did a great job with me but I discovered the anticipation of it all scares me to death. I am a just jump in the fire and figure it out kinda person rather than prepare and practice, practice, practice. The first time I had to practice with Karen (which just so happened to be the day before I talked to Martha) I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown. You know… when people say their knees are/were knocking they are not kidding… believe them as my knees were knocking! I got so scared and was almost ill. I couldn’t even think of one thing to say. But, Tuesday morning when Martha’s staff called to do a line check on our phone I was as calm as I could be… hyper but no nerves and my knees were not knocking in the slightest. I could not wait to talk to Martha.

Here is a little clip of me getting to talk to Martha and if you are wondering… yes, I really am that hyper when talking about scrapbooking. I think I’m going to start doing webisode tutorials on my blog. That was really fun.

Oh and I received my Michael’s gift card today!!! Can you believe they overnighted it to me? I’m sure I don’t need I tell you I have already been to Michael’s. I purchased a few items and have quite a bit left on my gift card. I was just so overwhelmed with all her great products. I couldn’t decide what I really wanted. So, I purchased some glitter (of course), the binder hole edge punch, these gorgeous satin photo corners (Ivory, Brown and Black) and some orange scalloped note cards. I’m going to really think about what I want to create and then go back for round 2.
