I can't believe it.

I'm still in shock over what just happened. I just finished taping an interview for ABC7 news. They're doing a story on stay-at-home-moms who make money from their hobbies. I'm still not sure why they picked me. There are so many talented women out there. I'm incredibly flattered, {I'm still blushing} and so excited to have the opportunity.

My weekend was a whirlwind of preparations; I attempted to whip myself and my studio into presentable condition. Here's what I came up with: (Oh, and sorry for the poor lighting, these photos were taken really early this morning).

I prettied-up my studio a bit. It's definitely does not look like this from day-to day. If only I could keep it this neat-looking.


Hudson helped me by doing some paintings for the walls. I love having a place to display his masterpieces. And the other half of the loft is his playroom, so it works perfectly. I also got two big jars for crayons and paints, and Hudson got his much-loved new piggy bank. He likes to carry "Piggy" around the house with him.

Here I am just before the interview. I decided to go kind of casual...that's who I really am, anyway. So I went with the cute leaf sweater from Anthropologie. I was really nervous, but Amy Hollyfield and her camera man were so nice and easy to talk to. Hopefully they'll be generous in their editing and I won't sound like a huge, bumbling idiot! My segment is set to air sometime this week. I'll post a link when it's available. {Unless I'm too embarrassed}
Well, my proverbial 15 minutes are up now, so it's back to regular life. Now we're off to Hudson's preschool for a Halloween party. Have a great Monday.
