Well, I arrived in Iowa on Weds morning and got right to work on my video segments for BHG Scrapbooks etc.! It was great seeing the Scrapbooks Etc. gang again and meeting some new faces. I had my first "hair and makeup" experience with a professional…Nancy, she was so sweet. The Meredith Corp. building is the coolest!!!! Its like a city!! And I’ve only seen the tip of the ice berg!! They were shooting fashion models, had all these cool sets, a test kitchen, its a really neato place! I think I might get to take a tour in the morning before I head home! YAY!!
So about my on camera experience…Let me just say—I’m braindead! Trying to remember what you are trying to say off a script while a camera is rolling is SOOOOOOOOOOO different than practicing in front of the bathroom mirror!!! OMGoodness!!! So glad Katie, Melissa, Michelle and the gang were so patient with me. They work their butts off!! They’re awesome. Got to see the behind the scenes of the mag and more of their process…wow. I’m just amazed by these gals!
Had some good dinner last night with Michelle Rubin and Christy T. Tonight went to the airport and grabbed a bite with Melissa and Christy. Good times. Very, very nice people. What a neat experience! So now I’m chillin in the hotel. Glad my work is here is done cause I’m missing the kiddos…specially baby boy. Scott trucked them off in the camper and I’m sure they’re having a good ole time!!
Better go–check ya later…jw
