My TV Debut

Well! Remember me scrubbing the floors last time I had great news I couldn't share? No time for that this time, I had to get stuck straight in!
I have been busting to tell you all my news, but really until it happened, I didn't want to tempt fate.
I, MrsC aka Maryanne aka The Crafty Lady, have a weekly spot on Choice TV's Brunch programme, demonstrating DIY craft ideas.
Choice TV is a national channel, and my segment is going out on Monday NZ time, between 10-11am some time. I have it on good authority that once the technical issues are sorted, my segment will be on YouTube.
And it was the best fun ever! I spent a happy 15 minutes in the green room talking to the world's first transgender politician, Georgina Beyer, a women I admire enormously, and who is absolutely hilarious!  Georgina is the political profiler for the programme.
So, you are probably wondering how this came about. I got a call a few weeks ago from Samantha Hannah, one of my all time favourite people, who is a presenter on the show. She asked me if I was interested and I said, probably not....kidding! I said yes please! Great publicity for my business, and great fun too.
and hard work. Oh my gosh, simplifying a project so much it can be demoed in 6 minutes, making 'here's one I prepared earlier' stages to whip out, all while talking flat out.
Anyway, I must dash. I took the camera out there to take photos of the green room and studio but really I didn't have time. I will add some links to our Facebook page etc when they are done.
Such fun! :)


  1. Woo hoo!!! (Maracas, party horns, confetti, hand clappers, cow bells and whistles going off here). Well done you.

  2. How awesomely exciting!! I hadn't thought about all the preparation to make the " in progress" stages ...I'm super curious to know what your debut project was! Congratulations to you :-)

  3. Congratulations! How amazing. You must be thrilled and imagine how thrilled your viewers will be when you teach them how to make fabulous crafts. Wow! Congratulations! Imagine, I "knew" you way back when!

  4. I'll have to record it. Been watching a few programmes on Choice since you told me and enjoying them. Maybe you'll get a 1/2 hour crafty slot next. X

  5. Oh that's so cool I hope I can try to find it on u tube

  6. I am looking forward to seeing you and your creations!!! (once we get a link to it) Good on you!!

  7. Hello! Couldn't find an email address for you, but please could you send me your details ASAP if you still want to take part in the Sewist's Secret Santa :)

  8. Yay, what fun! You must share the YouTube link once you have it. Well done!

  9. That is fantastic! BTW, I just added you to my links page- I hope that's alright!

    1. Why thank you, that is just fine with me! :)

  10. I do hope it makes it to YouTube! Such a lot of work goes into these little snippets, it's a shame to waste them, eh! :)

  11. Will we be asking for your autograph next? ;)
