good morning! yesterday I participated in a film shoot for a tv commercial. first time ever for that. Phyllis emailed me in the morning to ask if I could come be a "shopper" in the store. it was all kind of last minute--the production company contacted her because they were coming to the area to film for another local business, and offered to film for her too at a reduced rate since they were in the area anyway. there were about 6 of us in the store, pretending to shop--she also had me filmed with some of my pottery. it was fun--the people were very nice and I hope she gets some good results. I think this is her first foray into television advertising. they said the spot would air during the country music awards and on a few of the smaller local channels.
rob got on the scale today and was down another half pound. he was very pleased. I intend to get on early next week to see if the uptick I saw has gone away.
more brie bakers--tried an experiment to make the base, which failed spectacularly, but it SHOULD work. I did something wrong. so I pulled another piece of clay out and hand threw the bottom and made a third baker. the first should be trim-able today, and I have another piece ready to receive a handle.
have a great day!
