Why? Well, for starters we spent part of the day yesterday with Terri O. She filmed a segment for Sonoran Living with us! We all had a blast. She is truly a nice person. No "I'm a star" personality there. Down to earth and genuine. I think she really liked the store too. She asked us to create a garland that spelled out BELIEVE. We made a couple of different versions and she loved Jennifer Wyatt and Jennifer Wagners version. It is absolutely gorgeous. She did the demo with Jennifer Wagner who was a natural! And, of course, we took pictures. Here's Jennifer and Terri. They could pass for sisters! And us with Terri.

We made up a gallery of work that has been done by our teachers.
So it was a super fun day. We'll let you know when it is going to air. They filmed in the antique store too. Of course DH Rick was the spokesperson. He did a great job. He was meant for stardom. We just need bigger doors at the Johnson household now!
Another reason life is good, this weather. Who could ask for anything more!

What's that? Not something that we seem to be able find! We are trying to put the final touches on our Fa la la la la Fest that's coming up mid November. Teachers have come up with so many adorable ideas for decorations, cards, and gifts. They are all (for the most part) up on the web site so take a peek.

We had News Channel 5 here last night filming for a Halloween broadcast about our little ghost. They spent almost 2 hours taping and I think we got a 3 second blurb at the very end of the 10 o'clock news. I would have rather been home watching all of those cute trick or treaters. Since this is a new neighborhood to us we had no idea what to expect. I have never seen so many kids out. Luckily we were prepared with giant sized bags of candy from Costco!

Next week we will have the honor of having Terri O here to film a segment for Sonoran Living. We don't know when it will air, but we'll keep you posted. How did we get so lucky? Three television spots in 3 weeks! How cool is that!! We can't wait to see what she thinks of the store. She hasn't been here yet and is coming to film sight unseen. Once we figure out what project we will do it'll be time to start cleaning, dusting, straightening...can't wait!

I have been a lazy blogger and a picture taker so I haven't got the ITF's posted yet. Tomorrow may just be the day to do that. Does better late than never apply here? Hope so.

Don't forget to check the web site for class pictures and dates. Jennifer worked hard on that today!
