The Carol Duvall Show

May 14, 2009

I was very lucky to be able to appear on HGTV’s The Carol Duvall Show for ten season. Twice or even three times a year, I would fly to Burbank, California to tape segments for the show. I would always carry on the plane what I needed in order to demo my projects. I was also able to sharethe experience with my husband who was able to travel with me for all my tapings. All my segments were projects in polymer clay.

Linda did the hair and makeup. She was fantastic and such a sweet girl who always had bright smile to greet me.

This segment I was demoing a turtle eraser clay project. You also had to make additional projects for the show to give the viewers more ideas.

Remember Carol’s sock monkey in some of the opening scenes? This is one of the puppet masters.

This was a photo holder and it even turned into a book with Leisure Arts.

This was polymer clay covered votives. I was demoing the octopus.

Ian was the stage manager and he always made me feel at ease.

Kellly, the teleprompter girl. I’ve never seen anyone type so fast.

Sometimes there was time between segments during which Carol and I could engage in some girl talk. She gave me great advice and I took to heart everything that she told me.

I was lucky enough to be in two of Carol’s Live Christmas Shows. They were so much fun because it was the only time the show had a studio audience.

One of segments I did was a snowman beadpen.

Here is a picture of the audience at one of the Christmas tapings.
I miss those days and I’m so glad the Carol and I didn’t lose touch through the years. In fact, she wrote the foreword to my book that will be out in September.
