The Crafty Lass does… TV!
That’s all this post needs. If you had asked me 1 month ago a) would I work for a shopping channel on Sky in the buying team and b) would I do the on air demos?? I would have laughed in your face.
In fact, what I will do instead is tell you to tune in to Sky 660 at various times across this weekend for The Craft Channel’s ‘Festive Weekend Wonder’ with The Crafty Lass. Crazy right…??
Once again, I apologise for the lack of recent blog posts – but in reality I basically have enough time at the minute to make sure I am eating, sleeping (albeit less!), commute to London to The Craft Channel, try and stay in touch with loved ones, and of course some crafting… And the odd bit of gym/socialising/nails being done for the camera (!). The point I am trying to make is my schedule has become ‘complicated’. Ha!
I have always been crafty (as we know on this blog – the clue is in the name!!) and I have in the past been into theatre – a regular in the local am dram scene where I grew up in Sunbury-on-Thames at Riverside Arts Centre – however, I am not sure I was prepared for TV! Well, perhaps prepared is the wrong word – expecting?? – basically, it felt natural, but I do also feel – how did this happen??
For those of you who don’t know this story – I basically sent ONE tweet to The Craft Channel simply saying:
The Crafty Lass @craftylassdoes Sep 7
@craftchannelTV how do you get to be on The Craft Channel?? Only (part) joking. What sort of programmes will you show? x
Before I knew it, the following week – I was in The Craft Channel offices having a meeting with Head of Buying – quickly on the same day (about 20 minutes after arriving!) had a screen test – then the following week a follow up meeting – during which, I was offered a job in the buying team… and the rest is history. I now work for them 3 days a week, with the balance The Crafty Lass time…So what started as a quick almost throwaway tweet as now landed me a dream job! If you don’t ask you don’t get…
So, if you are interested in craft, and you are interested in me, and you are interested in TV… check out The Craft Channel and this weekend’s Festive Weekend Wonder featuring a 1 hour show with The Crafty Lass! There are plenty of opportunities to see across this weekend (and order the beautiful laser cut greeting card designs with embellishment gems!)
It’s the start of things to come….
