Not just repurposing, but BEING repurposed......" if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has gone, the new has come." ~~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

The camera loves me!

Okay, so maybe not ME, personally. But Monday I had my interview with the Press reporter and the trusty sidekick photographer. Imagine my surprise when he said the assignment was a photographers dream. Oh, the pride I felt. "Usually", he explained "people pick everything up before I come". Ouch! Then I had to report that I already HAD picked up. Hmmm.
Maybe he had caught a glimpse of this pile I had just created especially for their visit --

There wasn't even anything juicy in the pile, but maybe to the junk uninitiated.?.?.?.

Personally, I thought my work area looked pretty good, from back to front....

and front to back.

And I saw him checking out my sweet mobile tool cart....

unfortunately, he noticed my broken wheel that made it a bit tipsy!
When you consider that the other story he's working on is "Phantom Cell Phone Vibration Syndrome", (what in the world even is that, and how on earth would you photograph it), it probably wouldn't take much to get excited for a gig like this.
But I did have a few more photo worthy "zones"...
This is actually the "good" stuff, all done and packed away waiting for the next sale. Too bad most of it was unreachable. But oh just imagine!

More good stuff! I'm just glad I didn't need to pull anything out. It might have turned into a lifesize Jenga game.
Anyway, it was a good photo shoot. Not nearly as painful as I thought it would be. Not too many pictures of me, as far as I know. If only he knew how much I HATE having my picture taken. And then to have it plastered in the paper besides! So, he went easy on me, thank goodness. I realize I can't avoid it entirely if I want to have exposure for what I do. But I think most of the attention will be on my stuff. I'm sure it will be a great feature and I'm just so thankful for this opportunity that I've been given.

I would love to play a life-sized game on Jenga with all of your goodies. Only if I get to keep some of the pieces I pulled out.

I am new to blogging so I don't know all the ends and outs. There are sooooo many cool blogs out there. It could be a full time job looking at them all. How do I join your site? I also love looking at your projects. The hinge angels are great. I may try making some of those for may May show if you don't mind? Congratulations on your interview! All the media attention you can get is a good thing! Thanks for getting in touch!
