I’m back from Tampa, Florida and first and foremost have to say a huge THANK YOU to each of you for all your support. Your positive energy just oozed through your television screen to the HSN television cameras making me feel very loved and teary eyed.
The overwhelming response to the Project Life kit totally made Becky Higgins smile. In fact–I don’t think she’s wiped that smile off her face for three days now. It makes Becky so happy that 25,000 people will soon have her revolutionary memory- keeping system in their hands. Becky–thanks for your vision, insight and passion.
Here is a photo of the two of us with Kerri Bradford taken a few months back.
If you don’t know who Kerri Bradford is, you must go to her site to see firsthand her creativity. If you have a Silhouette Cameo or just purchased one, you’ll be amazed at all the images she’s created to be used on this machine.
Kerri just traveled with me to HSN and was my right arm for the entire process. She worked with me for years at QVC and I was so thankful when she said “yes” to helping me with my HSN venture. She is a wonderful women and so thankful we all benefit from her creative juices. Oh–and she’s the designer behind the Cinnamon and Turquoise editions of Project Life.
I got some many great questions from several of you and I’ll try to answer them in this post. Please ask me more if I don’t get them all answered!
Q: Where did you get all your clothes and jewelry for Monday’s show?
A: Two of my sweet friends who own amazing companies outfitted me with the majority of my clothes and all the jewelry.
The jewelry company is Jewel Kade and their jewelry is my absolute favorite. It’s very fashion forward, classic, yet full of personality and fun. Jewel Kade jewelry is only available through stylists. You can go here to find a stylist in your area.
Many of my clothes were from Loni Steven’s brand new online boutique, Ruby Bloom Boutique. I love the convenience of shopping online and the prices and size variety are unbeatable.
This is one of the dresses from her boutique that I was possibly going to wear on Monday but decided that it was too dressy for the crafting day. The dress is only $34.00 and you can wear it either tied or untied.
The necklace and bracelets are from Jewel Kade.
Q: How often will be you be on HSN?
A: I will be hosting “Papercrafting with Lisa Bearnson” 6-12 times a year. I will keep you updated with dates and times as I receive them. The next hours are scheduled for May but don’t have a for sure date yet.
Q: Will you feature new items?
A: HSN is very committed to bringing the very latest items to their program. They also love new, new, new. So–I’ll have a wide variety every time.
Q: Do you do your own hair and makeup at HSN?
A: Thankfully no. HSN provides a wonderful hair and makeup artist before each airing.
Q: When do you sleep during a 24-hour craft event?
A: I loved everything about HSN! Truly a great experience with the nicest people. One of the great benefits is having a hotel literally around the corner. After my debut on Monday morning, I got to the hotel around 2:30 a.m. and had to be back over to the studio around 7:00 a.m. It’s hard to shut your mind off and go to sleep but I actually got a couple of hours of sleep. I then was at the studio all day and didn’t get in bed until 2:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning. So–I was up for close to 36 hours with only three hours of sleep.
Q: Where do you hang out between shows?
A: Every guest is assigned a green room where they can relax in between shows. We also hang out in the halls, setting up all the tables and making sure all last minute details are in place.
Please let me know if you have more questions.
Thanks again for your support!
