Hey!!! I'm back. I survived...not sure about the camera woman but that's another story for further down the page....first things first, another little gift for you. Paperwork, with pink. A small piece for your shopping list or to put under that annoying, leaking plant pot. As usual, nothing innovative or forward thinking going on round here, just leave a comment, say hi, say anything. The winner of my little puffs is Lois...Lois!!! Postal details please..
Not such good pictures today...BOO!! Sorry about that, the weather and everything..I have a lot to get through today so prepare yourselves for a lot of waffling. Sunday. Video. Where to start? Well I started with a full English in the Motorway Cafe....120 miles later I arrived at the NEC. Bonnie was delightful, so friendly and welcoming. I was terrified. My work was laid out and I talked about it piece by piece explaining inspiration, technique, fabric choices. I did a demo on how to attach cloth to paper for 'paperwork'. I did the demo again in close up. Pictures were then taken of all the pieces that had been described earlier. Before we started Bonnie had explained to me how to be aware of where the camera was. Next to the camera was a monitor showing the actual images that were being filmed, as they were being filmed. Apparently if you look at the monitor instead of the camera you look distant, distracted. Well all I can say is prepare yourself because I couldn't take my eyes of the monitor. Mesmerised I was by this weird woman talking about my work who looked exactly like me only 50 years older!! and....it will most likely have subtitles as apparently I have a very strong Northern accent which wasn't easily understood...I was speaking English honest, just in a Northern way, Yikes!! Elocution lessons then. All I can say is that I am reliably informed that it won't be available for MONTHS.(editing, lists etc) Phew, by then you should all have forgotten about it!!!
I have probably left a lot out here, not intentionally but I am still in a bit of a tizz with it all...not easy this film star life you know, especially when you don't have a stylist or a make up person and
bags under your eyes and the dress sense of a Siberian Camel.
In other news.....I have had so many visitors from Pinterest these past few days. So many in fact that I have joined myself and am pinning pictures as if there is no tomorrow. (O.K. only around a dozen but that's a lot for me) anyway, pretty please pop over there and take a look at my efforts, I would really appreciate it.
If you are here from pinterest or from the wonderful link Bonnie has put up for me then first of all thank you...(and I really do mean thank you in a huge way), I would be delighted if you would visit my facebook page and perhaps ''like'' me? and also please stop by my little shop if only for a browse....
I am taking a few days off now to recharge the batteries. It has been hectic here for a couple of weeks and I fear if I don't have a little break my work will suffer......miss you already. x
