Thursday, August 23, 2007 Secret Revealed!

Yes! I can finally tell my BIG secret.

I signed a contract with to shoot craft videos for their fabulous new website! We just broke the news today, and I am soooo excited! As a designer, it is a pleasure to be able to share diverse craft projects and techniques with such a huge audience. This is an immense opportunity to bring crafts into the homes of the over two million Lifetime TV dotcom members and to inspire a younger generation to experience the satisfaction that comes from being creative. And yes, you read it correctly, that’s 2,000,000 members on the Lifetime TV website. No pressure! *giggle*

We had a blast with the Director Harriet Ells, as we scouted out locations. I took pics and Scott checked things out with Alex Teague, the Senior Vice President at The Limoneira Ranch in their lemon packing warehouse. What a fantastic place to shoot!

One of the coolest places was underground where they store the lemons. I can’t get over how big it is. It’s like a football field of lemons underground.

Harriet and I went nuts over this particular corner where the big doors close and the roughness of the building is just perfect to contrast with the craft studio set-up.

The aroma was amazing and totally intoxicating in the Limoneira packing house. I would love to take a whole crate of lemons home with me. But it would be a little hard to sneak those under my shirt!

Okay, now that the BIG SECRET is out, you can believe I can start letting you in on all the fab crafts I’ll be creating for the videos on They plan to launch the segments in mid-September, and we will be shooting them the week of Labor Day. For sure, I’m going to to be one busy gal to get more than a dozen projects done. My fabric stash is going to come in handy. Can you say sew, paint, stencil, glue, and bead???? Stay tuned!
