Not A Face For The Tele Just Yet!


I had a very exciting e-mail in the week from the Associate Producer of a new TV programme on C4 called Superscrimpers: Waste Not Want Not, it seemed they had found my blog and thought I might be able to contribute something!

The series is about trying to teach the general public how to be less wasteful and save their money, however after a couple of phone calls and e-mails I really don’t think I am what they were looking for.  Though I use a lot of car boot and  Poundshop “finds”  etc. for a lot of my projects, they were looking for someone who could unravel their husbands old jumper and knit toys for their children with the wool ….. which isn’t really me!  But I was dead chuffed to be asked and it’s thrilling to know that my blog has been “spotted by the TV people …..  however, I think this may be as far as it goes ….. but you never know!

OOh, fame beckons! You're already famous in our books, a true star with all your inspirational crafty ideas.

I nearly got on the radio (BBC local) when I put my Queen visit pics on Twitter. (I missed their message so it didn't happen).

Just goes to show, you never know who might be checking out your site (research wise) its not just us creative crafters.

Ahh bless - well it's there loss - your blog is fab. The closest I have been to fame is my cousin was once sat in the audience of Cheggers Plays Pop (showing my age now). Thanks for sharing all your ideas x x

Yes, I've seen the show - such a shame, I would think you'd be great for it. Not everyone wants to darn socks as a way of saving money LOL

Congrats...on such recognition. Doesn't surprise me as you can a little nothing into a huge something. :-)

You never know down the track they might just revisit your ideas.

Wow!! Helen, I have followed your blog for a couple of years yet and only watched the programme for the first time last night. Go on it, but insist that you see the bits they will show first. Lol.

Good luck honey.
