HGTV Promo: Behind the Scenes

I am still reeling from all of the positive feedback I have gotten over the past few days on the Made + Remade article.  Not to mention all of the added traffic to my little blog!  No pressure Samantha, no pressure….

Speaking of pressure, if buying a new house and being named a Creative Genius wasn’t enough last week, I am officially live on HGTV and the DIY Network!  If you guys follow me on any of my social media outlets you saw me posting a few months ago when the film crew poured into my Atlanta studio and filmed me doin’ my thang.

The promo is running during commercial breaks randomly on both channels each day, so glue your cute butt to your most stylish chair and watch non-stop until you see me.  Don’t act like you have anything better to do! ;)

Since I don’t have a copy of the segment to share yet, I thought it would be cool to show some of the behind-the-scene photos members from the crew took during the 13 hour shoot.


I’m not going to lie, those lights were hot! Girl was sweatin! This was the interview portion set up in my design studio, sitting in my favorite chair.
