. . . Fox 8 News Story . . .

I was overwhelmed when Melissa Painter from Fox 8 News contacted me in January of 2011 to possibly do a story on Etsy and Itsy Bitsy Paper, but after several emails back and forth I didn't hear from her again so I figured it wasn't going to happen.  Then a couple weeks ago I had a message from her and she said they wanted to do the story within the next couple days.  Yikes!  I figured I would have to go into the studio and shoot the video but as it turned out they wanted to come to my home and see my workspace and interview me here.  I think that made me more nervous than anything else but it all was fine and Melissa and her cameraman, Kevin, were fantastic to work with and totally put me at ease and I just felt like I was talking to someone that was curious about my business.

The waiting game started after that because I didn't know when it would air or if it would air and I was terrified of how I would present myself and who would see it and would my house look messy.  They told me it was going to be on and then after I told everyone the story got moved and so after that I was afraid to mention it again but it aired this past Thursday evening and the feedback has been so nice from everyone. 

I figured this was a great time to also show my work space because people always ask where I work in my home.  (This was also a great opportunity to have my office space really clean)  It is a loft space at the top of my steps that was really meant to be a bedroom but we chose to leave the space open to the family room below--the reason you can see windows and a ceiling fan in so many of my photos I take of my projects.  Little did I know back then that it would become Itsy Bitsy Paper.
