Why I don’t make VIDEO TUTORIALS…

I have been working with another company to produce a few projects.  Originally, I was asked to record the tutorial with video instead of pictures.  Like in my home.  With our own little cheap-y camera.
But they said they would edit it and fancy it up a bit.
Luckily, they changed plans and will make the videos themselves.
Do you think I was the cause for their change of plans?

You decide.

(Turn up your volume nice and high so that you can hear everything!)

(And if you to see it really big, click on those 4 arrows in the lower right corner of the video.  I’ll be all up in your face!)

Apparently I’m not made for TV.
Maybe I’ll give it another try when that big bump (even bigger now!) has disappeared from my midsection.

    What a cute video! I brought a smile to my face. I actually prefer picture tutorials because I can follow them on my own time. Your tutorials have helped teach me how to sew! If I need to learn a new technique…I look here first!

  2. Sisters of Grace says:

    Fum to see what you are really like but i much perfer pictures anyways.


  3. Clare G says:

  23. Janel says:

    LMAO!!! I promise I am laughing WITH you and not AT you! I had to do a video submission for a try at Ultimate Cake Off – it went SO HORRIBLY WRONG it makes your look like an oscar performance! It was so so so so so so so sooooooooo BAD! I didn't even want to send it off, but I just sucked it up and sent it anyway!

    Did you see me on Ultimate Cake Off??? oh, NO?? hmmmmmm…wonder if it was that video! hahahaha!!!!

  25. melliepetunia says:

    This made my day! I watched it first thing this morning – and I think we can all relate. Love it, love it, love it! Cuteness – love the Take 1 through Take 57. Mine would be more like 257. You are awesome!

  26. Brenda Sue says:

    I say you have every right to blame it on the pregnant brain syndrome.. I am suffering through that as well… It's a good thing the little bambino's are so adorable when they finally get here that it makes all the stupid things we do and say worth the embarrassment!

  27. Simply Complex says:

    That was adorable. Man, they should use your video because you know that theirs is going to be too polished.

  28. Daphne says:

    Thank you for making my day!
    I hate the video camera….but you were adorable!

  29. Laura@Cowboy Boots says:

  30. Alaina says:

    Loved it! And you're too cute with that little baby bump. :) Cameras make me act that way too. I hear you get used to it. Maybe… ;)

  31. Taylor says:

  36. Lee Ann says:

    Hilarious! Love it. I'm glad I'm not the only one who struggles on camera!

  37. Candee says:

    Loved it! My brain is the same. When I get in front of people or a camera my mind goes blank and I can't get the word I'm thinking of, out!!! It's so frustrating. I totally understand, and the video just makes me love you more!
