It is always an exciting time whenever heading to Riverbank Studios in Tampa, Florida to do a Daytime TV Show taping. For five years, I’ve been privileged to do what I love in the company of these wonderful people. It just gets better and better every time!
Thought you’d enjoy seeing some of the behind the scenes shenanigans, so I thought I’d share some of mine with you.
When arriving, I usually make a very quick stop in the Green Room to greet everyone there, and then dash off to the studios where I see the NBC Peacock on the wall – it kinda makes my heart race.
Set up begins.
As I prepare my segment , there is always this mental rehearsal in my mind as I go through how the whole thing is going to play out . So if it looks like it’s really quiet, it’s probably because it is. Well at least everywhere, but in my head. 🙂
A special shout out the the people at Martha Stewart for providing everything used in the segment . They also provided all kinds of amazing craft products for a Facebook Daytime TV Show giveaway – So, be sure to go and like their page if you haven’t already.
Don’t forget OUR VERY OWN Martha Stewart Craft basket giveaway HERE. Just leave your comment at the end of this post to enter. We’ll announce a winner over the weekend.
The Host of the show Cyndi Edwards and Jerry Penacoli are such gracious and enthusiastic hosts, they light up a room when they come in. They are the kind of people that make everyone feel right at home. The combination of their willingness to laugh about themselves, while being the utmost professionals makes everyone else feel right at home. Their chemistry is undeniable, and I’m certain you’ll find yourself smiling all the time and just falling in love with them!
Jerry had his mother as a guest in the audience, and well, … I just had to share this special moment with you because it just brought joy to my heart.
Speaking of swag, ROC Paper Scissors also contributed a little something for the studio audience. Remember the crate full of roses on the work table? Each lady received a hand-made paper rose with a special discount coupon for a paper portrait.
Time came for my segment with Cyndi where we made the Spring in a crate card just like the one in last weeks blog post. I’ll just let the pictures do the talking:
But wait there’s more … we have a surprise for an audience member:
This was the finished product:
Speaking of surprises, another mom finds out via Daytime TV that her daughters have this for her on Mother’s Day. A special thanks to my client who allowed us to “spill the beans” two days prior to Mother’s Day, just so we could showcase this gorgeous piece of artwork :By the way, let me introduce you to our NEWEST size in Paper Art Portraits: 11inches x 17 inches.
Lastly a huge thanks to Scott Beck,who has been part of ROC Paper Scissors technical and video aspect since it’s inception.He was behind our You Tube video . So great to see where his heart and his talent are taking him!
