Feature on WISH-TV 8 Indy Style

Art 2 The Extreme Featured on Local Indianapolis News Station

WOW! A huge thanks to WISH-TV's Indy Style cast and crew for the amazing opportunity to be on their show and get the word out about shopping handmade!

On Friday, August 24th, I took the morning off from school (I am an elementary Art teacher and I HATE to be absent) and headed to the WISH-TV 8 studio in downtown Indianapolis.  I was kindly greeted and escorted to the Indy Style studio where I was able to set up my display of handmade items from both my shop and a few of my friends. I only had about 15 minutes until the show went live. 
Once I spread my array of handmade goodies, I put on my mic and was ready to go!

It was fun to watch the hosts, who were very fun to watch and kind in person, move from one place to another with the cameras automatically following them and moving from one place to another. It has been about 10 years since I was on the news and boy, has the technology changed!

I was on at 9:33 am and had just a little under five minutes to show off what I do. I talked about my items, my favorite hats from Two Seaside Babes, and mentioned the storefront opening of Vardagen on 116th street.  

My favorite part was teaching the viewers how to make a t-shirt scarf because it is something so simple that anyone can create, even if you do not consider yourself a DIY or artistic person. 
Just as quick as everything started, my five minutes flew by and it was over! I had a such a great time and I am very thankful to Peggy and the crew of Indy Style for the opportunity to share my story.  The busy, dedicated teacher in me rushed back to school (with 2 hours still left of my sub) and was able prep for the afternoon and continue on with the rest of my day. 

P.S. I promised to link the DIY mitten pattern! You can find it HERE!

  Thanks for reading!
