Fame at last !!!

I thought you might like to see some of my recent  adventures ....

Along with Christmas, some very exciting things have been happening to me in Den's Crafty Land
I've been on a couple of design teams this year- one for a scrapbooking company called A Trip Down Memory Lane and one for a card making company called Aspire Crafts .... well - just before Christmas I was given the opportunity to do some live TV shows for Aspire Crafts. My first shows were on the 20th December and I must now apologise to my blog friends who didn't receive a card from me who very kindly sent me one - and also thank you for sending them.I was literally up to my eyes in preparation for demos and work and Christmas preparations...my feel literally didn't touch the ground.....

Anyway, I thought I'd post a few photos for anyone who didn't see the shows or who doesn't have a Facebook account ...

First up I was with Nigel, who was lovely - I didn't manage much chatting but did get through some demos without collapsing into a nervous heap!
It was SO weird seeing myself on TV when I got home and looked at the recording..
Next up was the same day with another presenter called Andy - he was also lovely and chatted a lot about football as I'd mentioned my men were mad on footie!
Andy was VERY tall !!
The day went pretty quickly and I settled into Christmas mode afterwards
Then I had a call to ask if I would do some more shows after Christmas !!
 
These are some of the samples I made for the shows- forgive the bad quality - I had to take them in bad light


and this time I was on with Leonie who was fab - we had lots to chat about as I've known her for a while. I felt a lot more relaxed this time too. I did another show with the lovely Debbie Shore but I  didn't manage to get a photo with her.
So those were my exciting adventures over the past two or three weeks.
I never thought in a million years I would ever be on tv - it still seems a bit surreal and I really wish my mum and dad were here to share it with me but it was grand and I hope to be doing some more in the future.

I always knew your talent was destined to lead you to great things! It seemed very surreal to see one of my oldest (not in age!) friends on TV and, what can I say, you were a natural. Your demonstrations were fab, I am sure that lots of people were inspired to buy the kits after seeing what lovely things you made.
Well done! Here's to many more bookings x x x

I loved seeing you and your fabulous designs and what a buzz to say to David and Gracia "Look it's my friend Denise on TV"!

This is so fun, Denise! I'm so happy that you are being asked to share your talents and I really wish there were recordings that I could watch online in the US!
