At last I can share my news - wooohooooo.
I have been sitting on my hands and had the super sticky red plastic backed DST firmly over the chops but I can now reveal ....... that I'm going on the telly :)))))) Lili of The Valley will be returning to Create & Craft and Lisa and Laila very kindly asked me if I wanted to do this side of it for them so that they can concentrate on running the business. Well I thought about it for maybe a nanosecond (it may have been slightly shorter than that) and I said OOOOHHH YES PLEASE!!!! That was quite a while ago (before Christmas really) and it’s been no mean feat for me to keep this info to myself for this long. But the girls took the tape off the old mush this morning and I can now share.
So on Tuesday this week we headed to sunny Peterborough (it was extremely sunny) and did the screen test. And C&C were happy enough with me so I got the green light - phew!!!. As much as I was nervous, and my tweezers were shaking (or was that my hands??) I got through it. And I got through it despite not being able to find one of the components on the card I was demoing even though I had double quadruple checked everything I put out for the demo (it was actually stuck to one of the die cut circles, grrrr). And despite the fact that they would not let Lisa and Laila into the screen test studio with me. I so wanted them to be there for a) moral support and b) because we have practised it and they put a lot of work into this for me. And despite having a spray tan which turned my very blonde eyebrows quite orange (I kid you not and it took lots of brown pencil to cover them up). And despite sweating so much that the poor sound man must have had a ball (not) attaching the sound pack to the back of my trousers (poor soul). He must have thought I was so attractive, me and my sweat drenched back, and how he must be looking forward to me going there again. If he’s off that day I will know why!!!
We are waiting for the actual date and then it’s off for the live show (that DOES actually sound very scary – don’t think about it Dawny!!). But it is very exciting all the same and I cannot wait. Kyla is beside herself with excitement, bless her. I pity her poor teacher at school today, I really do. I have a little lump in my throat though cos I am so sad that my lovely Mum and Aunty are not here to share this – they would have loved it, especially my Mum. Maybe she will be watching, who knows (they may be able to get C&C up there!!!).
So watch this space and we will give you more news as the ‘i’s and ‘t’s are dotted and crossed.
Hugest of thanks to everybody who has emailed and left messages for me including my wonderful LOTV teamies. And of course massive thanks to Lisa & Laila for giving me such a wonderful opportunity – thank you so much my hunnies xxx
