File this under it’s nice to be nominated.
As we mentioned in our inaugural blogiversary post, we were actually talking to people at Harpo about doing a teensy little DIY segment on an episode of Oprah. One of our lovely readers over at Better Homes & Gardens (thanks Kaelin!) emailed us to mention that Harpo execs were looking for some crafty home peeps so she gave them our name. About an hour later the phone rang! Yes, we realize how INSANE that sounds. Even after 15 emails back and forth and two phone conversations it still seems like a series of dream sequences.
Alas, even after all the back and forth with the lovely people at Harpo, it just couldn’t come together in time for their targeted episode (the one that featured Ty Pennington making over two twins’ homes last Friday) but it was an honor, a privilege, and a bit of a nail-biter to have even been considered.
And now that we’re on their radar who knows. Maybe one day we’ll get to look cutie pie Nate Berkus in his dreamy green eyes and tell him how much we obsess over his sickeningly perfect design sense on a daily basis (although John would probably choose to word his admiration in a slightly different manner). Fingers crossed…
