Making It On NBC

June 21, 2018
>Good Day Friends! I have been keeping a BIG secret! Yesterday I shared some terrific news on Instagram and Facebook and today I am sharing it with you! It involves introducing some great people and a crafting competition too.



This purely delightful 6-episode making competition is from two of my very favorite people! They are also the executive producers of Making It! Nick Offerman and Amy Poheler are the dynamic duo from Parks and Recreation and they are bringing their good humor and passion for creating to NBC. Not only is their humor contagious, they are both generous souls with hearts as big as the state of Texas.



Our friendly group of contestants will knock your socks off and impress you with their awesome talents and creativity. Hanging out with this much energy, ingenuity, artistry and humor re-ignited my passion for life and sort of left me feeling like I could climb mountains and swim across seas. Seriously I feel as though I need to be pinched to see if this was a dream. Was I really here?? Did I really do this?? I guess it's true because NBC has included me in the cast! There is no telling where I may run with this amount of can-do-spirit! Sixty never felt so young!



Yesterday NBC made the announcement on People, complete with photographs and bios. Today I want to share with you a little information on this darling cast so you can follow them along, I know you won't want to miss out!




I know that you all are going to want to go give these folks some love so lets begin on top left corner:




I suppose one of the coolest thing about this show is that it inspiring us all to get moving, get going, get crafting. Lets bring back the good old days when folks made stuff instead of buying it! Now ready set go, get off the sofa and go to the craft store and buy that glue gun!
