great day houston appearance

i was SO wiped yesterday from waking up before 5am to get ready and then working until a little passed 5pm....i didn't have time to upload any photos...until now!!
so here is the video clip - in case you didn't have the chance to click one of the 5 billion links i posted yesterday!

i am the first chickadee [it's called "top of the show" apparently!] and i kinda introduce the idea behind etsy and etsy houston. i thought it was cute that deborah duncan mispronounced it.  anyways, in case you didn't know it before...this is evidence...i am a huge dork!
next is lora of b. bags and sandy of robot in bloom. their items are gorgeous! my cousin called me later in the day and was going on about how she wants one of those purses and she wants sandy's flowers for her wedding, etc etc. good stuff :D

AAAAND now a short "behind the scenes" video clip i threw together!

i got there pretty early and took photos before the "green room"
[which is actually quite blue]
got crowded!
one of the camera dudes was nice enough to take some photos
while the producer walked us through the segment.
lora and her lovely bags
sandy's beautiful flowers :)
[she was hiding in the green room!]

i had to leave right after our segment and head back to work.  my co-workers are awesome and a bunch of them watched the show live from the library.
sandy was nice enough to give deborah duncan the burnt orange texas brooch [which i was supposed to give her on camera but was so nervous i forgot!] along with a bouquet of her gorgeous flowers.  we'll see if we're asked back for the holidays :)
crazy, right?
