Studio Snapshots: Scrapbook Soup Recap
10 Monday Jun 2013
Last week I was in Cleveland taping Scrapbook Soup, a PBS television show. I’m a crazy person very thorough when it comes to preparation, so it’s wonderful and slightly bewildering when the filming gets done so quickly!
I taped 5 segments, three for Hot Off The Press and two for myself. Each segment is about five minutes of air time, and could take five minutes to tape, or half an hour, depending on the preparation and all kinds of factors outside your control (coughing fit, sneeze, burnt lightbulb).
My two segments were on Packing Tape Photo Transfers (love!) and making your own tissue tape. I’ll also have both topics—with different projects—on my Studio SN You Tube channel in the near future, too.
I had a super time with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer (yes, the designer with all the cool stencils!). I’d taken a workshop from Julie and Nat Kalbach in Hamburg awhile ago so it was great to see her again and to work with her. She’s super nice, really funny and smart and professional. My kind of gal!
Everything went really smoothly until my return flight home, when I found myself at 4:45am with a late shuttle driver, a cancelled flight and a toothache…but managed to make it back to my parents’ in Oregon and back to Miss Anna, who was hanging out with her cousin and Omi.
The segments will air in the autumn on PBS but you can also watch online. In fact, they update new segments each week so you can pop on over and watch any time.
