I made it through the Creative Bug shoot last week for creativebug.com. It was a close call, with only a few days to complete the prep—fabric was late to arrive. Ashley was out sick and Karen had other obligations, so I was short-staffed to boot. Mom to the rescue. She came over and cut out pillow pieces for hours. (Extra amazing, as my dad's in the hospital with a broken hip right now—yikes!) And I called in some freelance help as well for yet more cutting—there were lots of step-outs to prepare.
We made it. I even got three hours of sleep. Let's just hope the recording doesn't pick up my puffy, bloodshot eyes.
What a delightful film crew Creative Bug has: two camera operators, a sound technician, and an artist's coach—to help me stay organized and coherrent. If only we could keep her around, right? I wish I'd had the chance to get to know them all better. I did all of the talking for hours straight.
Perhaps we will collaborate on future online classes. Next time, with more sleep. You'll watch those ones and say, "Wow, Heather just got 5 years younger in this new video."
The magic of sleep.
