When you least expect it, interesting opportunities pop up.
Such as it was one afternoon - a phone call from a friend, something like this . . .
"I need some very simple handmade cards for a movie prop. Can you make me some samples tonight?" (tonight?)
There was no pause.
YES, YES! Why of course, YES!
Then the guerilla crafting session began - they had to be all different and I was not sure which ones would make the cut.
I am so excited to share that these are the cards that will be included in a hospital scene for a teenage girl (Season 4/ Episode 11) for the Lifetime series, Drop Dead Diva!
I apologize for the poor camera pics. I was using the camera on my phone at night and texting them as they were produced.
I am starting to get an idea about how the filming industry ebbs and flows. (like a rollercoaster?)
Again, another phone call.
Friend: "Can you hem some curtain panels for a scene?"
Me: "Sure, what do you need?"
Friend: "45 panels by this time tomorrow"
Oh yes, that feeling in the pit of your stomach. (Can I do this?)
I mustered all of my faith and said YES.
The much anticipated show Craft Wars would have to wait. (Alex gave me the play-by-play during the commericals). I was in the midst of war myself - guerilla crafting, on a deadline.
24 hours later I am proud to say I did it. (I still can't believe I sewed all of those panels - holy cow!)
In the season finale of Drop Dead Diva there will be a wedding scene with lots of flowing panels. And, somewhere out there, will be a girl with a bubbly heart full of pride.
Thank you for stopping by sweet sugahs!
