first of.. HOLY cow thank you friends!!! lol.. so many awesome wonderful words of kindness on my facebook page about last nights show, Craft Wars, on TLC. !
I have to tell you.. I had the most amazing time on that show! It was So fun.. win or lose. I knew going into it that my goal was just to have fun. And I have to be honest.. the part you didn't get to see.. when they asked me how I felt about Cheryl winning.. I said.. "her house was gorgeous! it looked liked it stepped right off a pottery barn page! and it truly was.. she did an awesome job. AND based on the outside and design.. I actually knew she had won.. and was so excited for her!. I truly was. Was it hard to lose? yes.. was it humbling.. yes.. but not upset about it at all. I would do the entire experience again in a heartbeat. and I have to say.. I had the BEST help on the show! Ben was awesome.. I was bummed because they cut out SO many funny things he did and said! lol.. he was constantly cracking me up and the producers up.. infact they said to me later they had never had someone so interesting on the show as him.. he was funny and lovey dovey.. and not afraid to show his "crafty skills".. Loved the part where they sang when the doors worked! lol.
All I can say is the show was great.. the judges were great and I loved the other crafters on the show. They were both seriously so sweet and nice. it was a great experience and I am so glad the show is finally over!!! lol.. I have been so nervous for months to watch it! I mean obviously they had 5 hours of footage to use.. so you never know what 5 hours they are going to show! lol.. wasn't sure if it would show me constantly talking to myself saying "oh christy that wasn't what you wanted to do.. or singing words like "love it!! " lol.. like I do in workshops when I get lost in my work lol.. So i am glad they got me mostly just intent on being creative and not the silly dorky me I actually am! lol actually I wouldn't have cared either way. I am who I am.. right? either love me or hate me.. but either way.. it's me.
anyhow. GREAT time and THANK YOU for everyone who watched and cheered me on! YOU ALL seriously TRULY rock!!
Last fall i did a blog post and about how her skin care line has seriously changed my skin for the better. I originally used it as a last resort because I had some major damage to my skin from proactive and then tried to fix it with all sorts of stuff. Proactive is an awesome product.. just So harsh on your skin. So after it fixed my problems areas I started to have at age 38 (um hello! i thought after 18 you have perfect skin?? lol).. anyhow it was pretty harsh on my skin and I needed something to bring it back from the dead. I tried So many different things.. and honestly one day my sister just said.. would you just TRY our products please? just try them.. I know they will help. So I did.. being TOTALLY skeptical at first.. and oh my heck.. I was in love after day one. After two weeks I was sold. So eventually about 6 months later I did THIS blog post on it.. because I had so many people ask me about my skin and why it was looking so good (in my workshop videos and when I traveled and taught).. Well they offered my blog readers a special deal and guess what.. THEY are doing it again.. same awesome deal. $59.00 for the entire SET and free shipping!! I was like..Tia .. are you crazy? and of course I know she is.. our entire family is. that's why I love us all.
anyhow.. so if you haven't tried it.. now is a GREAT time to! They also offer auto ship programs too.. but I suggest trying it first! see if you like it! I have had So many emails.. hundreds of emails from my blog readers who LOVED it.. that it did wonders for.. I was just in peurto Rico and Marion Smith (another awesome artist friend) started telling me she had started using it too because she read my blog post and she is IN LOVe with it! I had no idea she had!! lol.. another lady in one my classes was using it too and said it had changed her skin. It just made my heart happy.
anyhow.. so here is the code!
It is good for 2 weeks and it is almost 50% off the retail price. Plus free shipping. So Go get some Muvazi love too! Crazy awesome! Love you tia! mwah!
