Well, it has been awhile since we have chatted hasn’t it??
I miss hearing from you and I hope you have missed hearing from me… Did you know that Making It with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman along with this fun loving cast is just about to premiere in just about a week! I am so excited for you all to meet the real live creative cast, judges and shop master too. There were so many things about this process that were life changing for me. Truthfully, I will never look at glue gun the same way! Today I am sharing with you all the day us Makers got a manicure.
So, in hindsight I think all of our nails must have looked pretty ragged. If you are a gardener, baker ,scrubber or maker you know what happens to hands that get overworked and overtired. UGLY!
I know that I had no earthly idea that cameras would take such close-ups of our hands. Those camera folks get angles of your body, face and hands that seem impossible to get, and they sort of sneak up on you while you are in the middle of deep thought and making sizzling crafts.( Seeing some of my photos are beginning to make me feel a little squeamish. I should have had gone on a diet and had some botox first!) Oh well, it was all just so fun, neat and enlightening that I am what I am and that’s that.
Every single one of us got a manicure. Menfolk included and just look at how fine these fingertips look too.
I think having buffed and polished nails gave us all a boost of confidence and energy too. We are ready to get a little friendly crafting competition going on.
Soo many choices and so little time. Pink, red, blue or natural….decisions, decisions.
Nicole and Amber…made me smile all the time.
Get out of the way of Kheim and Billy when these two Makers set their mind to Making it!
This smile…pure joy combined with crafting calculations.
This guy Jeffrey has the most wonderful voice, wit and uncanny ability to make a 5:00 a.m. van ride laughable, even without a cup of coffee!
Happiness if fresh nails and fresh water!
Who can resist a smile like this!
Or us four gals…just getting groomed and treated very well by Amy and Nick and NBC!
You see all of these smiles, they were all passionate and genuine. This has been one of the loveliest group of people to work with that I have ever encountered in my 60 years. There was just something so magical, kind, caring, truthful and of course hilarious about working together to make this show.
We all gathered together as strangers to share the joy of crafting and we all left as family. How awesome is that.
You are going to see such a variety of projects that are really going to inspire you. My hope is that this movement of Making It will spread like warm maple syrup over fresh chocolate chip pancakes and that everyone all across the world will try some craft. We live in strange times, so lets unite and make an afghan or something!
Just a small dose of crafting a day will most certainly keep the Doctor away!
