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
