Thank you everyone who posted comments to me today I was so tickled to read them all!! I think all your good vibes helped me because I wasn't nervous once the segment started. As soon as I started talking the nerves went away.
I was thrilled to see I was on the show with Marc Morrone the pet guy. I am so sad to hear his baby parrots that got stolen, what nasty people! grrr! But it was a thrill to see him and his other pets on the set. You all know how much I love animals. It was torture that I couldn't snuggle them! There was that sweet pug and those kittens! oh my!
I love how much Martha loves animals. Paul was sitting in the audience and he told me that before Martha filmed the segment with Marc she climbed right in there with all the animals snuggling the parrots and the critters not worrying at all about her outfit. Love that!
I only got to meet Martha right before my segment and then said a couple words afterwards to her because she was off to finish the last segment of the show. But I loved getting to spend time in her space and had a super time. I do remember having a great time. I do not remember much about what I said or did. I do recall them holding up the cue card for me to wrap it up and for a moment I thought, oh no I have to hurry, but then next thing it was over!
Paul managed to take a few pics while we were practicing before the show, for some reason these are a touch blurry I think our camera is dying!
I am trying to remember everything and worrying I will forget a crucial step!
Thanks to the gals who let me know that if you missed the show today you can catch it (Thursday at 8pm EST or Friday at Noon EST) on the Fine Living Network. Also the Martha Stewart Web Site should post video soon. I will let you know when it is up!
Ok I am off to bed! what an incredible day this was!!!
We loved seeing the photos Paul took that you posted - thank you Paul!!! So glad he was there with you and love his view of it all!
Also your Mom's posts/updates during the day with everyone's as they got to see it!
What? No cuddling with the critters?! I thought surely one of those kits or pups would end up going home to FL!
Enjoy the rest of your trip, celebrate and enjoy NYC!
all the best from here.....

You were awsome and didn't seem a bit nervous...How exciting for you...did you get some plum tart? It looked yummy
I will be sure to watch the video when it is posted online.
So glad that all went well. I knew it would.
You will have more hits than ever on the blog!!

I'm so happy for you...I'm sure this will really shoot your career into the stratosphere, as if it wasn't already there! xo
My mom watched, too and said your segment was the best of the show and should have been the longest! She's a retired art teacher, and said how she'd loved to have taught Sitting Pretties to her 7th grade kids.
I was home sick (never happens)and the ABSOLUTE highlight of my day was seeing your segment on Martha!! How lucky I was! I have been a huge fan of your art since Ali Edwards mentioned you a while back on her blog. CONGRATULATIONS!! You seemed so relaxed and the little "Sitting Pretties" were adorable!
P.S. I agree you should host your own craft show!
P.S. Martha got you name right, wink, wink...
And by the way--what shampoo do you use?--your hair looked fabulous--next appearance...Claudine promoting Pantene!--lol!
Congratulations on a job well done!
Take care -
you ROCKED on Martha!! i tuned in right before you were on. :) see you next month!
