I’m a big dreamer. I always have been. I’m often telling my friends that I “shoot for the moon and worse case, I land in the stars!” Some of my biggest dreams are to one day write a book on entertaining and maybe even have a tv show (tee-hee!!) so it was a lot of fun for me to put together this “commercial” for the summer issue of Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll! My mom helped me do this and we had so much fun choosing outfits, picking locations, shooting outside before it started pouring down rain, and more! All of it was a blast. We filmed the video with my iphone 4s – I love the camera on my phone! Then I used iMovie on my mac laptop to edit the film. This program is so simple to use – I highly recommend it if you are planning to do any “homegrown” videos like mine. A special thanks to John Paul Gladwell for allowing me to use his original composition “Riverboat” in this video – it’s such a cheerful, southern melody… I love it! You can see the video here on YouTube. I hope to do more videos in the near future – maybe showing a recipe or craft…. what do you think? Would you like to see more videos from me? Leave me a comment and let me know. Also, if you have any tips or advice on filming and editing I’d love to hear that too!
I’m off to the Haven conference in Atlanta on Wednesday and I’m sooooo excited! Some of my favorite bloggers are going to be there including Miss Mustard Seed, Southern Hospitality, Young House Love, The Lettered Cottage and so many more! It’s a whirlwind trip so I know I won’t have a chance to blog about it before Monday. But never fear, I have a fun post with one completed project from my daughter’s bedroom that I’ll share with you on Wednesday and I’m hoping to get a review of some of the new Martha Stewart office products done to share with you on Friday. Then I will be back next Monday with my Haven round-up and recap!
See you soon and remember, please leave me a comment about the video!
