It’s a wrap friends, season one of Making It on NBC is over. While my presence on the show was somewhat brief the positive experience is not! The camaraderie lives on in my spirit and heart and propels me to continue to believe in the goodness and creativity of mankind and that truly when we design and Make from our heart we give that gift to others.
Our Making It journey began about a year ago. Eight of us arrived in California to join Nick and Amy in this Oasis set against the California Hillside. We had never met, never spoken, and yet when we did, there was an immediate bond. I suppose it was because “we got one-another.” We understood the quirkiness that goes along with an artistic soul. We were welcomed by Amy and Nick and the entire production company in an unexpected way. Not a what I would imagine “Hollywood way,” but a ” come on in and sit down way.”
After having gone through a rigorous interview process several months prior, we arrived eager, hopeful, happy and ready for this new chapter and opportunity in our lives. We put on our aprons, smiles and heated up our glue guns!
This amazing crafting barn took our breath away, every single day that we walked in. The details, the colors, the work stations. Just take a moment and savor the beauty of it all.
Can you imagine what was going through my mind? A Farm girl from Thornton Idaho, with years of home crafting style under her belt. Not only was I sharing my joy of crafting on national television, I was part of the Maker movement and that makes me very proud!

Last night we watched and wondered, as our final three beloved and talented Makers designed a Wedding with adept skill, composure and extreme talent.
Congratulations Kheim, well deserved, and I am looking forward to the great things that are on the horizon for you and Amanda!
