Beads, Baubles and Jewels


I am crazy flattered ... and more than a little nervous ... about taping two segments for Beads, Baubles and Jewels.  I didn't become nervous until Katie Hacker said, "Plan to arrive at 9:30 for make-up."  It was at that point that I felt I had to run to the bathroom!  All kidding aside, I'm looking forward to this ... well, kinda!  


Katie and I spent some time chatting and realized that we have a few things in common, especially the fact that we both live in rural areas where promoting ourselves as artists seems to be a losing battle.  Thank God for the Internet!  I encourage fellow artists to consider going online to make connections and be seen, but a lot of times I'm met with, "Oh, I don't use the computer much" or "I don't know how to do that."  


Geez Louise!  If they only knew ... Had I not braved the new frontier, I would not have met all of you, which has been a very bright spot in my life.  We leave next Wednesday for Cleveland and tape on Thursday. Please pray for me.  Be specific. Pray to the Big Guy, "Please don't let Barbara Lewis flub up!"  Hugs, Barbara

Congratulations Barbara. That is so great. Do you know when the segments will air, or is it only on DVD?

You will do a wonderful job! Remember that you know all about this subject and will be able to share what you know. Just let your enthusiasm loose!

You are going to be GREAT! Just be you and talk about what you love to do and the rest will take care of itself. I have met Miss Katie (standing next to Melanie Brooks booth at Bead & Button no less!) and she is so sweet and bubbly in person. I wish that I could have spent more time with her. I have this picture in my head of the Carol Burnett show when they screamed "Make-up!" and someone comes out and hits her square in the face with a humungous puff ball of powder! I am sure that is not what will happen to you! I wish we got that show here. Be sure to get to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when you are in Cleveland. I have relatives there and it is a fun city!
Enjoy the day!
