Thank you so much for the support I have received from my little announcement!
I have received the nicest messages on my Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, texts, e-mails…and maybe an actual phone call. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. I can’t tell you how terrifying it is to really put yourself out there for the whole world to tear you apart. But I seem to keep on doing it so clearly I’m a nutcsae.
Yup. That’s me. In all my glory. I’m not sure why the HGTV editors selected such a crazy picture of me. Our hair and makeup was professionally done. A wardrobe person went through or clothes and selected our outfits. There was a top of-the-line photographer plus crew. And this is what they came up with. Ugh. What is happening with my crooked smile and smeared lipstick? Plus it looks like my shirt is about to blow off….
Oh well. I guess they like it like that.
In addition to our mugs being plastered all over television, print, and cyber space our portfolios are displayed online. It is complete anxiety to see your work on HGTV.com for the whole world to critique. I love some of my shots, like some, and want to cry when I see a few. This is probably my favorite picture of mine.
But, I’m not talking about “The Jessie Show”, I’m talking about “HGTV Star”. All of these crazy kids are on this awesome program as well.
You can go to HGTV.com to check out everyone’s full profiles and portfolios. I am so honored to be a part of such a majorly talented group of designers. Fo Realz. I have mad respect for all of these individuals, each in their own way.
Want to see my fav pics from each of their portfolios?
Needless to say, the competition is stiff. I can’t wait to watch us go at in a just a few short weeks. Season Premier is June 9th on HGTV so please set your DVRs.
Side note, I’m switching from WordPress.com to WordPress.org tomorrow (Wednesday 5/8) so my site will be a actin up. Hopefully I will soon be prettifying this here site. Get excited folks, lots of changes over here.
