The Carol Duvall Show



This time of year always makes me think of HGTV's The Carol Duvall Show. I taped quite a few
Christmas segments and was also lucky enough to be on two of her Holiday Shows. It was some of the best times of my life and it was so hard to see it end. Carol and her staff became family to me. In fact, my first producer has become one of my closest and dearest friends.

Carol has a new book out called "Paper Crafting with Carol Duvall." If you want to check it out at Amazon.com. Now, if we can just get her to write her autobiography. She has had a fascinating life.



Behind the scenes, waiting for the taping to begin. The director is giving me some last minute pointers.


This is one of the Holiday Shows and I'm just waiting to begin. The Holiday Shows were so much fun because they included a studio audience. The set was always so beautiful.


Before my segments began and sometimes after, I had a lot of wonderful talks with Carol. She is still such an inspiration to me and a lot of other crafters.
This is just part of the staff that is "behind the scenes." I never realized all the people and work that goes into a television show. They worked such long and hard hours!
I have some old shows that will be on HGTV during the Holiday season:
Snowman Pen on November 28th, 2007 at 8:30 am ET/PT
Exhausted Santa Box on December 12th, 2007 at 8:30 am ET/PT
Cat and Fish Ornament on December 17th, 2007 at 8:30 am ET/PT

Becky, What a wonderful trip down memory lane. So many of our guests were so intimidated when all the guys gathered round to watch the walk through...they didn't realize it was part of their job!

I was telling someone the other day about all the good friends I made there. I have artsy friends all over the country, er... world, thanks to Carol.

Thanks for your support lately with Mabel! What a brat she is...she wrote you a note in my comments...so check back.

That must have been very cool! (I wish we had cable so I could watch!)

Helena: It was an unbelievable experience!

Becky,

It's not only Carol, but artists like you who appeared on her show that have inspired me to create the art that I do! Thank you so much for all of the projects you taped on Carol's show. I record all the reruns on HGTV and DIY -- looking forward to seeing the holiday shows again.
