entubed: our tv field trip

Today's Photo Heavy Monday comes from our Craft Activism field trip to WTNH, the TV station in New Haven. They invited Joan & me to tape a segment for  CT Style, a mid day talk show. Totally fun. I'll stick our segment in at the end, so you can watch it if you have 5 minutes .Craft Activism models & co-authors 
Raises the question: do you need curly hair to be associated with Craft Activism? Um, hells yeah.183_GZucker1011caEvents 
The set, before we decorated it with our books. Noting what our host was wearing, we accessorized her.194_GZucker1011caEvents 
Tell me she doesn't look awesome in the Ocelot scarf (project in the book, y'know).202_GZucker1011caEvents
True story: while Joan helped Stacey and Beth get set to model for us, I went to go check my makeup. WTF? My shirt was on inside out-and no one told me? Caught just before I made a total ass of myself. Yay for the ol' confidence.
Our good fortune: the other guests were a cooking segment, from Leon's.184_GZucker1011caEvents

Guess who had Prawns-or were they Langostinos-  in a Spicy Tomato Sauce ?  Yum.

All in all, very fun and kind of funny. Neither Joan nor I are used to being in the spotlight but neither of us is uncomfortable on set, either.  I'd hoped to flourish the Fussy Cuts blanket so I had it in my lap , giving me an FDR'ish forbearance. Don't believe me? Check it out:

Fabulous! I was somewhat amused that she asked how challenging it was for you to do the photography - did she not realize that photography is what you do?

You looked great, and that red scarf around your neck has its own message, eh?

What a great piece! I too chuckled when she asked about the challenge of the photography.

I don't have curly hair, but when long it is naturally wavy....

Totally cracked up when she asked you about the photography. And loved that you wore the red scarf.
