What Have I Gotten Us Into?

Duct Tape Prom Dresses!

I have a confession to make.  As I write these words I am TERRIFIED!!!  

I’m also extremely excited.  Filled with anticipation. Energized...and can’t wait to get started. But at my core, I have to admit that I haven’t been this scared since I was very young.

You may wonder what has caused such trepidation. Am I about to go white water rafting? Cross the desert on a camel? Jump out of an airplane? Take Sophie's World public? Oh no, nothing as crazy as that.  I’m simply embarking on teaching a 10-webisode class for on making prom dresses out of duct tape!   You heard me.  Prom dresses...out of duct tape!  What was I thinking?

I’m really stoked about teaching the class.  The challenge is in the way our video shoots are structured.  Because of budgets and time, we basically have 1 eight hour day to shoot about 2 hours of video.  As Eli, our Director of Photography pointed out, that's the equivalent of a feature film.  It’s a little nerve wracking.

I have an amazing video crew working with me.  My sister Freda has created some of the most beautiful dresses I’ve ever seen.  So why am I so nervous?

I think it all boils down to the fact that I am really passionate about teaching and I just want to do it right.

I'll keep you posted as we finish the class and the dresses.  I know in my heart they will be incredible.  I just wish it wasn't beating so quickly.
