Day 1: Modern Day Road Trip

Is it not the coolest thing ever that I can sit in my car while heading to Seattle and use my laptop? In the day when I was my kids’ age we were lucky if we had enough “paper” games to keep us busy and the alphabet game grew old by the second day. Nope, not our kids…they get to use a laptop (sorry no wifi here though…next generation), their game systems, iPods and mini-DVD players. We tried the alphabet game once, but that grew “lame” quickly. And as soon as dad started winning the kids were tired of playing.

For me sitting in a car 800+ miles means I get to catch up on my sleep a bit and do a little blogging from the back seat. One exciting part of our trip so far was my hubby letting our 15 year old drive part of the way. He has his learners permit, but he’s NEVER driven on a highway. But hey, my hubby must know what he’s doing, he drives for a living…. Scariest 30 minutes of my LIFE!

Take 1: Northridge Media Video Shoot with Kristine McKay

One of the highlights of my week was shooting some video spots for Northridge Media (publishers of Cards, Scrapbook Trends, Beads, Simply Handmade). The video shoot of course was for Imaginisce and we featured a couple of projects kits and the fun i-rock and i-top tools! I have to say I think the re-shoots were the best part...but only up to about 3 times...after that it was just a bother. But we still had fun.   Our lovely host and talent extrodinaire was Kristine McKay. You may have seen this awesome gal on Studio 5 and many other Northridge Trend videos. She made the entire experience fun, light and I cannot wait to return to shoot more videos.
 Here's some shots of them setting up the set before the video shoot.

The videos aren't quite ready to be posted, but I'll be sure to post them here when they are. If you haven't checked out the new Northridge Publishing Blog, be sure to go over there and subscribe to their feeds! Also, if you love crafty things you'll want …
