Hey friends! Sorry I haven’t been around much this week… I didn’t get more owls sewn or even clean my studio up because I worked a couple extra days this week and have been learning the ins and outs of the Ustream broadcasting process. I also went to the dr again for my knee pain and had a lovely “little” cortisone shot in my knee. Let me just tell you… that was a whole new adventure in pain. LOL! It seems to be calming my knee down and I’m able to do a little more again, yay! However, it does look like I will need to schedule a scope surgery on the knee in the next couple of months. (I’m trying to work up the courage to just go get it done.)
Anyway.. I did have a successful broadcast last night! It was good to see some of you there in the chat room! :) I didn’t have too many technical difficulties and it seemed to go pretty smoothly. I was nervous as heck but now I think I can handle doing more videos like that. It was actually pretty fun and I only had one of my supplies “jump ship” on me during the broadcast.. one of my leaves decided to FALL (buwahaha) off the desk but thankfully my handy and handsome assistant (Brent, of course) was nearby to retrieve said fallen leaf. I lurve him. Oh and my hair cooperated! WOOT!
I’m going to work on the sound and not yelling into the microphone and causing it to go bonk on me. LOL! Don’t have your sound up too loud or it will be a little “scratchy/screetchy” in places. I’ve got can lights/recessed lights in my studio ceiling so they shine right down on the desk (hence the circles you see in the reflection). Gonna work on that, too.
I’m going to be doing another broadcast in a couple of weeks, too! Watch the video and see what we’re gonna be making!

And here’s last night’s video! (I apologize for the commercial in front of it… I wish I could take it off.. but the ads help us have a free broadcast.)
Enjoy! I will be giving one pumpkin away to a random commenter… leave a comment on this post and I will draw a name on Tuesday evening, October 12th. (And I won’t forget cuz I’m putting it on the calendar in my phone.. aka brain… tee hee!)
