I knew it couldn't be about my patio!

Pin It Now!

This is my second post today so make sure you read the one below first! They made a mistake when they sent me the email...it's not my outdoor space they are interested in, it's my armoire! That makes a lot more sense to me. My patio just isn't that great and was the lowest rated "room" I had on HGTV's Rate My Space.


I've found out since my last post that I need to submit a video that shows my whole home and someone has to ask me a bunch of questions that they have provided! I think I feel the need to go buy a new outfit to wear, get my hair and nails done, eyebrows waxed, clean the whole house, hire a carpet cleaner, find someone to video tape me, buy new towels for the bathroom, buy fresh flowers, make sure the dog doesn't bark....Am I forgetting anything??? LAUREN...GO CLEAN YOUR ROOM! This is not going to be easy!

From the video they decide if you are HGTV material (they didn't really say that, those are my words.) Boy will that be a letdown not to get chosen after all that!

Oh I have no doubt they will pick you! Who wouldn't? They would have to be nuts not to.

Darla said...

Hey, I'd letcha make either of those spaces into MINE. =)

So, just sayin...if HGTV is a no...Iowa is a GO!

Are you kidding Cindy?! How could they not choose your home...it's so GORGEOUS!!! I know I'd certainly watch you on HGTV! I'm so excited for you! :)

Shari said...

Well, some vases of your beautiful roses would be a very nice touch but I doubt you have to go to all that other trouble and expense because somehow I suspect you and your whole house are almost always "camera ready."

Relax...take a deep breath...and just be yourself!

You GO GIRL!!!! HGTV has filmed about 6 houses in my neighborhood over the last couple of years. Mostly for the old home renovation shows. We have friends who have worked with them and they give them glowing compliments. HGTV is very professional and easy to work with...don't sweat the small stuff...enjoy the experience! Please keep us updated! xoxo~ and Lauren, listen to your mom! Go clean your room :) xo ~ Joy J

Glenda said...

Well you just never know do you ?
Do you have a video camera ?
Even if they were not going to choose you, it would be an experience. But I think you'd do fine. I don't know you personally, but you seem like you would do fine under pressure.
Make a list of things and check them off.
Wear something light and spring like.

I do hope you get chosen.
Good luck
Glenda

Adrienne said...

I can't imagine they would even think of not wanting to show your home. They would be crazy not to feature it. You have done such a great job and they know good stuff when they see it. I can't wait to see what happens next. ~Adrienne~

You go girl! You can do it and we will be so proud! Don't forget candy in the candy dishes!!!

Dear Cindy, I have been enjoying your blog for several months now, and just want to say that you seem so amiable and friendly. Those qualities really come through in your blog. Congratulations on all your success!

As I look at your pictures, I imagine that it must be so nice to come home at the end of the day and rest in the haven you have so amazingly created for yourself and your daughter!

No matter the results of the HGTV thing (which I hope will be positive!)you'll always have the pleasure of enjoying your home! Have a wonderful day and God bless!!!!

Carousel222 said...

They say everyone has at least 15 minutes of fame. I say go for your third. I'm counting your blog as number one, and the article in Romantic Country as your second. I'm sure they will want your home on the show. I know all your blog readers do. Can't wait to see you on TV!

Janet said...

They don't make it easy do they? I would be just like you thinking of all the things I had to do and buy for your video, plus I would need to lose 30 pounds first, LOL.

Janet

Kayla said...

YOu are verry talented. I love your spaces. It would be a shame if HGTV didn't choose to share it with everyone on TV.

Sweet Designs said...

Congrats to you, I hope they choose you (how could they not).
But gosh, they do expect alot out of people for the prep, I mean how many people own a video camera? (I don't) LOL

A Romantic Porch said...

Don't worry girlfriend...I'm thinking you'll be chosen! xoRachel

DebraK from ~the Bunnies Bungalow~ said...

Wow Cindy! It couldn't happen to a nicer person. Do you remember WAY back on RMS when you first posted your pictures and so many of us instantly became fans and suggested that you design for a living???? How awesome that HGTV recognises your talent! Your RMS friends knew it all along! Congratulations Ksarra

Donna Lynn said...

Dearest Cindy,
They would be nuts if they don't pick you, we think you are A# 1, and if they can't figure that out they aren't worth 2 cents!!!!!!
You will be great on TV, you have so much to offer in the way of advice, tips and absolute talent! Don't sweat the small things, no one will ever notice...the eyebrows maybe though...you know I'm Just kidding, your beautiful and so is your home!
Hugs, Donna Lynn

Cindy,

I'm sure that you will knock their socks off! I wouldn't worry about fixing things, because I think everything is perfect, as is, both inside and out.

Just for the record, I LOVE your patio. It's warm and cozy, just like the inside of your home.
