15 minutes of fame


If you have been following along with my blog and the fact that I have been waiting to be featured in a House Proud segment on the Steven and Chris show



This is the video link to today's Steven and Chris show , my segment is on in the last 15 minutes of the show , you can fast forward to that area of the video if you like.
Well it was a lot of fun to see how they put together the footage from the other day , they did a great job , and I was surprised that I didn't seem to look like a bumbling idiot like I thought I had , the opening was I have to say was awful and I wish I had given it a few more goes , ok , there you have it then .

That was wonderful! Great job!
And I'm so impressed. It's one thing to see it on your blog and somehow a little different to see it on a show with the interview, panning, etc. Everything looks fantastic.

Congratulations Chris,

I watched it yesterday when I got home on PVR. You were fantastic and looked great. I loved when you walked around and told the viewer how you did the island, chair and ceiling. As soon as I saw the chair I said "hey I remember what that looked like before" It was a great segment, you should definately be House Proud. great job.

Take care,
Lisa

Linda Lou said...

I just watched you and you did an amazing job, and your home is soooo beautiful in person, and the fact that you did it all yourself is truly a testament to your talent!! Wish you could blink and be in San Diego to help me!!

Congrats! You must be so proud, you were great!

Aimee said...

Oh, you are so CUTE!!! It was so cool to see you "in action". Your house looked spectacular as usual.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Chris, I have to tell you that I have long admired your home and have wanted to create something similar. I showed my husband some of the photos of your house and he was so-so about it, but he was so impressed with your video tour that he's on-board! I hope that when I am done renovating my home that it looks half as nice as yours. I think you did wonderfully on camera. You look so calm and confident and you look awesome on camera.

julie said...

What a great job!!! I love your home and I have said that before! But seeing it on video was the best! I want to copy everything! You looked great! Julie

Kim said...

Your house is soooo freakin' cute! And so are you! You did a fantastic job. I'm sure this is only the first of many great things coming your way!

Kelly said...

OMG! Your house looks so charming on the video. You did a great job discussing all you did with the house and you've made me feel empowered to try more things myself. Your house should be in a magazine. This was a great advertisement for your new decorating business. You should put this video on a CD and put your business card on it and give it as a pkg to potential clients. Seeing your home on video is even more impressive than on your blog. Congrats on your television debut!

I can't wait to watch this!! I have some spray painting to do first, I'll be back. :)

That was so exciting to see you on the show. It actually helped me get an idea of the layout of your house which for some reason I hadn't been able to piece together from your photos. You did a fantastic job - congrats.

cheers,

Saucy said...

So glad you posted this link, I had a medical appointment and was so disappointed to miss out on the airing. Thank you! Off to watch.

tracie said...

Chris,
Congratulations!! It was so great to see you on camera! I think you did a fantastic job. Your decorating philosophy demonstrated through your beachy cottage home, and explained by you and how you live...all of it.. loved it!

lizziefitz said...

BRAVO!!!! Chris you were amazing. I felt "proud" to see you show everything thing that us bloggers have had the honor of previewing:)

Jill -Forever and Ever House said...

oh.my.goodness!! (me squealing) I missed a few days of blogworld...and look at all that has happened!! Congratulations on your debut. Thank goodness I have the PVR ---I have it taped and just watched it tonight!!

While I always knew that your home was lovely, seeing it on tv gave it a different perspective. For instance, because the TV camera is able to pan from one room to the next, I was able to see how your family room and kitchen are "open concept". I feel like I could appreciate even more how much your home's styles and colours all flow with each other. Really, it is soooo nice! You have such amazing taste!

And you! YOU! You really were amazing! I don't know why you were nervous about how it would turn out. You looked and sounded great!

Hats off to you!!
