Well...what artist wouldn't love some free promotion?
We did. As did others.
So, most of us crawled out of bed EARLY, to show up EARLY...and then wait.
Note: usually we show up at 8:30am-ish to open at 9am. So...many of us were minus sleep and coffee. By the way - not a drop of coffee to be found anywhere. :-/
To make a short story - shorter - We did not get on the segment...nor did most others. Just two. The candlemaker and the glass blower.
I can't find the segment to embed. But I did take some photos...just for fun.
|Camera guy sets up while artists wait....|
|More set up....|
|And yet more set up...wait...it gets better...|
|LIVE! Explaining how a glass bead is made...|
|Setting the glass bead in the clay to cool...|
|Wrapping it up...|
|"Did ya see us on TV?"|
|Mike vows he will never EVER show up early again. Three years in a row...he's done this and has never made it on TV.|
|Dazzling Dawn...I think she should win the most beautiful booth award...if we gave them out! She hand-paints all her glass!|
|Meanwhile, while most of us were just standing around being disappointed...he just kept working.|
|And Josh and Michael did some yoga.|
|And least our booth was pretty.|
(such are the things that make stories in our lives!)
