I used to go to Toastmasters International and a number of years ago I did a qualification on television presenting, so in my mind I was prepared.
I just needed the opportunity.
Out of the blue last week I got a phone call from Mish Mash TV asking me if I was interested in being interviewed about my mosaic making and the classes I run for children.
Of course I said yes..love to.
Last Monday a team from Mish Mash TV, Jonelle Hosking, Brittany Stewart and Paul Tilling spent a half an hour interviewing me and learning how to make a simple mosaic.
They were such a happy, lovely and beautiful looking group of people and they made me feel totally relaxed.
I'm sure their programme would appeal to children because they really knew how to have fun.
I got the feeling they loved their job and that's what it's all about.
I'd love to do it all over again.
Infact I'd love to have my own TV show about creativity; hows that for being "over the top"?
I love teaching children mosaics because they really enjoy the process and make some really cool things.
It's surprising how quiet a whole room full of children goes when they are busy making something like a giant mosaic mural for their school.
My next wish is to be interviewed for TVNZ on their Good Morning Show.

Creative quote of the day
It's a fact that more people watch television and get their information that way than read books. I find new technology and new ways of communication very exciting and would like to do more in this field.
