Not that I’ve ever written a behind the scenes lately post that didn’t start out with an explanation of how crazy things have been, but after a last-minute, whirlwind trip New York last week, and a weekend filled with the catching up, cold medicine, and prepping to go out of town again next week, it’s seriously been a doozy. See what I mean? Even my sentences are trying to run away from me.
We have a big video shoot going on today, which I’m equal parts terrified and excited for. It’s been a lot of coordinating details, but I love the satisfaction of having cool videos when the project is over. I have sort of been keeping up with Snapchat (and have found it kind of fun!), so be sure to follow along there for some down and dirty (okay, maybe dirty isn’t a good adjective for Snapchat) behind the scenes action too!
This weekend is my brother’s birthday, so we’re going to be taking a little break to celebrate him, and then we’re off to Boston next week for a fun chocolatier adventure with Lindt chocolates (we’re going to be working with them for all of 2016!), and for the Wayfair Conference I’ll be speaking at next Friday. If you’re hoping to snag a last minute ticket, I’ll be giving away a pair to a lucky follower over on Instagram today, so keep an eye out!
In the meantime, here are some scenes from last week…
Here we are again with another behind the scenes post, and can I just say that sometimes I wonder what people’s impression of Sugar & Cloth would be if the first post they read was a behind the scenes post? With the random crap I write about it could be anything from wearing the same dress 3 times in a week, to shooting on the floor, to Jared and I wanting to kill each other. It doesn’t really make for the greatest picture painted of us, but then again it could make our other posts look like such a great accomplishment achieved by insane people. It’s a toss up really.
In other news, we’ve been busy over here! I’ve also been slightly hopped up on allergy medicine, so that always makes the regular day-to-day a little more interesting, so this should be fun…
Sometimes I wonder if you all really knew everything that went on behind the scenes you’d love us more, or be worries for our sanity. The verdict may always be out on that one, but nonetheless it’s still fun giving you glimpses from behind the scenes! It also gives me the chance to show you some things that aren’t always made for the blog, like the pool photo shoot we did with American Express.
The photo we posted for it Instagram turned out awesome, but what you didn’t get to see was the rain store that happened right after we finished blowing up all one million floats at the location house!! I almost cried. I almost cried on a stranger’s porch, but I resisted!
We actually shot the floats at the owner of On Point Custom Homes house. Needless to say we were practically all besties after I ran around their yard for two hours in basically no clothing while trying not cry, and also tossing inflatable pigs around. Good times! Now you have all been warned in case you ever invite me over for a pool party…
