I spent so many hours making that earring/paint video yesterday and then editing it last n ight – and then today I found out that my Mac is so old that my iMovie made the video run really choppy. Normally I would say, “oh well” and wipe away a couple alligator tears – but it’s cool. This is a mighty fine week to celebrate.
Not only do I get to announce the info for the Crafty Chica product line release, this week is also the one year anniversary of my novel manuscript being pitched (it sold seven days later). Today I celebrated by investing in a new Mac with part of my advance money. That way I can make new videos to promote the product line and my books – without any choppiness, beach balls on my screen, sighs or or cuss words! I haven’t had a new Mac since my first Crafty Diva book, so this is a huge deal for me. Right after we walked out of the store, I swear I felt like smoking a cigarette. It felt that good 😉
I’ll be redoing the earring video, and posting a fun clip of Patrick and myself chatting about our business.
As for Michaels – I’m so blown away as much as I am happy. Right now the line is going in 141 stores as a special end cap promotion, and once it proves itself – then it goes out to more stores!
Once again, here is the list of Michaels stores that will be carrying the line. If your local store is not on the list, no worries! Everything will be available for sale right here on my site, as well as various indie stores around the country, with more to follow.
I’ll be having all kinds of weekly contests and demos showing off the goods too!
OK, back to the (happy) grind!
