Get Tacky with Pattie Wacky





















Yep, that's me, holding the 2007 Special Edition, Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Ideas magazine with the incredible Duncan glue ad in it with me and my fake cakes. Woohooooo! When Scott and I shot this ad, I never knew it would get soooo much attention. But, it was really fun making the cakes with styrofoam, candies and glue. You can go to Duncan Crafts website for the instructions.
















I looked everywhere for the magazine, and finally found the last one at Barnes & Noble, and the last 4 at Borders. I bought extras to send to my family, and of course I just have to have one for myself!

















A big "Duncan" shout out to Alyson Udell for the gig, to Joan Fee for helping me pick out the candies, and to Scott at Insight Film and Video (my new hubby) for making me look good in the photograph.

The team at Duncan is the BEST! Their ads are so lively and fun and Alyson really knows how to draw out each person's personality. It looks so cute. I want to make those cupcakes - like right now at 1:30 in the morning! Did you know BH&G is the #2 selling magazine in the country? Congrats, girl!!!!

I know! I want to eat the little cupcakes, too. Actually, I did eat a lot of candy when I was making them. I pigged out on the sprinkles.

Thanks for the shout-out...this ad was really fun to work on. You and Scott are always great to work with...you truly make it easy!!! I really want to make the cupcakes for my table centerpiece...they are too fun! I was thinking that I could make them with pink candies for a bridal shower that I need to host soon!

Big congrats to you on all your successes...keep it up!
