Twisted Tuesdays - TV Appearances

I am combining Random Monday & Twisted Tuesdays into one post this week!

hotel morning
:: I drove to Cleveland OH Sunday afternoon to shoot another appearance on Beads Baubles and Jewels.
:: I ordered room service and watched The Princess Diaries on cable. I also treated myself to a piece of chocolate cake that ended up being the size of a football.
:: I brought the cake home for the kids :)
:: I didn't sleep a wink, can you tell?
:: Confession: coffee is my friend again.

in the green room
in the green room with susan lenart kazmer
:: I got to hang out back stage with three fabulous ladies. Katie Hacker (the new host!), Candie Cooper, and Susan Lenart Kazmer.
:: I was a big girl and dressed myself this year. Both the knit shell in dark teal and the gray wrap were found at TJ Maxx, cheap. (Remember picking my outfit last year?)
:: And my stars, my hair has grown! Check out details from last year's taping HERE and HERE
:: It was such a delight to see all the projects that will be shown this season and peek at the things people are working on. I even got to see Susan's new Industrial Chic line in person.

tv cameras
on air
:: Yes, there really is an "on air" light that goes on.
:: Thankfully, my nerves weren't terrible this time around. I just got flutters when I was setting up my stuff on set.
:: I did what is called a Show & Tell segment rather than a Demo, and it was 7mins 15secs.
:: New to wireworking and wondering what wire is good for which jewelry application? Tune into Season 1300, Episode 11 to have all your questions answered!
:: I consider 13 my lucky number.

on set
on set with the host katie hacker
with the host
:: The make-up artist, Karen, is a miracle worker. Unfortunately, I am wicked allergic and was halfway to hives about 20mins after getting dolled up.
:: Season 1400 will be filming in December, and I really really hope to be invited back again. Wouldn't I make a fab-regularly-appearing-wire-guru? LOL.
:: Lots of hugs went round when it was time to head home. Even though this was the first time meeting Katie, it was like we have always known each other!
:: The drive home was uneventful as I listened to Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Titan's Curse on CD.
:: I was happy to see my family when I got home, but really should NOT have checked my email. That, as they say, is a story for another day though.

can't wait to see the segment this fall..how cool you got to meet some many amazing people both times.

Christine said...

I love all the pictures from the set....you look truly marvelous, Kerry. I love your outfit!

And yes, even though I have not seen ANY episodes of the show, I think you would make a fantastic frequently-appearing wire guru! I need to figure out when the shows air (if they do) around here...

jeanette said...

How exciting, Kerry! And you look marvelous!

Nancy said...

Very cool Kerry! It was almost like being there... ;-) Congratulations!

mairedodd said...

absolutely wonderful - congrats! and how great to get to meet others in the field...
hoping that positive boost gets you thru the email...

Cindy said...

What great photos...almost like being there. That football-sized cake and meeting all of the wonderful artists sounded so amazing! All of that excitement wrapped in to one day!! And I agree...you looked TERRIFIC! Can't wait to see the video or clips when I can around here.

::You look awesome on camera, Kerry. I don't think that the makeup artist had a hard time...you are bee-you-tiful!
::Being on camera sounds like a lot of fun. (I have BS in English so I can BS about anything!)
::I met Katie in passing at the Bead & Button show. She is really nice.
::Wish I got that show here...I know, I know, I can buy it...
::Wouldn't it be great if it was available on my hulu queue?
::I vote yes for Kerry as the wire guru.
::I want to be the guru of something too ;-)
::I just blogged a little teaser about the gallery exhibit starting with your beads!!! Go check it out!
::I know that you are being beyond patient but can you shake that tree a bit? I am still all tied up in criss-cross for you!
Enjoy the day!

You look super cute! Can't wait to see it. I'm excited about Katie hosting and -- is that a new set I see?? Cool!

Erin said...

Oh Kerry, you look so pretty! I don't get Beads, Baubles and Jewels on TV. I will have to order the DVDs sometime. I've seen some of the first couple of seasons, but now I'm probably way behind!!! How many seasons has it been running now?

Oh, I so wish we got BB&J in Richmond but we don't. You look great-love the outfit and I am sure the segment was wonderful. Maybe you will become a "regular".

Nicki said...

Is it really one year since your last shoot? I can't believe it. You look really cool in that picture though - did you color your hair? I like it. Unfortunately, we can't see BB&J over here, but I would watch every episode. You just made me a bit curious / worried about that email thing at the end.... hope it is not something too bad.

sandi m said...

You look mah-va-lous Kerry!
Need to figure if the show airs here in Chi-town.
Can't it's already a year...

Isn't Susan's line divine? We have the whole line here in Michaels.

Now for that news...when you're ready. Fingers XXXd.
