I guess I, um, didn't, um, realize how many times, um, the word UM comes out of, um, my mouth!!  LOL!!  Holy cow! 

The funny thing is, that I knew that happened when people get nervous and I was consciously thinking about it before I went.  I told Jeff that I needed to really think when I was speaking so I didn't do that.  He told me, "Don't think about it too much, just be natural and be yourself and you'll be great!"  Even though I lost all my nervousness by the time it was my turn, because everyone there was so great and does such a great job at making you feel comfortable, I felt like I did a good job!  If you would've asked me if I said "um" a lot after it was over, I would've said, "NO, I didn't say it at all!"  Ha ha!  Wow.....have I ever heard myself?  Who was that, um, person?! 

So, needless to say, I need to work on my public speaking!  If anyone has any suggestions to help my "UM" problem, PLEASE....I'm all ears!

Regardless, I had a great time and can't wait to get to do it again.  As I promised, here is the link to watch the segment.  I'm still trying to figure out how to put the actual video on here?  Project instructions to come soon!

Great Day St. Louis!

I had the wonderful opportunity to do a segment on KMOV's Great Day St. Louis today!  I wanted to thank everyone there for a wonderful experience.  This was my first crafting TV gig and they made me feel really at ease.  Everyone was so friendly, and really made me feel very I was just talking with friends.  So thank you, Sammi, for helping prepare me for what was coming and a big thank you to Virginia!  She did an awesome job guiding me along and even jumping in a few times when she saw I was struggling with what to say next!  LOL!  She earned her wine glass that I left for her!  I'm really looking forward to the next time!

I will be posting a link to the segment later on, along with the projects and instructions that were on the segment. 

Thanks again!  You guys rock!
