Another BFL workshop for Main Line School Night! Friday, Jan 29 2010 

I’ve been asked to conduct a 2nd Brilliant Frugal Living Workshop for Main Line School Night!  I’m so excited – thanks, Rachel! I did the last one at the Creutzburg Center, a gorgeous Victorian renovated for classrooms – it is absolutely beautiful. If you’re free on Saturday, April 17, I’d love to see you there. We’ll talk budgets AND drool over architcture at the same time!  And lest we forget, I will of course supply the ever-present, creativity-inspiring chocolate for all attendees….

Creutzburg Center, and even more gorgeous on the inside!

What a fun, fantastic start to 2010! – A 5-minute segment on NBC’s “The 10! Show!” Sunday, Jan 17 2010 

What an amazing, mind-blowing week. Not the least of which was having a FANTASTIC time at NBC 10 studios on Wednesday for a last minute segment on “The 10! show with Bill Henley!  Such a blast!  Everybody there was so helpful and professional – what a crew!  

Also got to meet the most amazing guests – Leah with Rodale, Inc & Melissa with Cassera Communications, as well the incredibly talented singer Matisyahu, AND his HYSTERICAL entourage (cheers! “wait, WHAT is in those cups?!”) Got some great book orders as a result, and some wonderful networking leads for future gigs – thanks again, Melissa!!

Many, many thanks to Mina Sabet, Producer Extraordinare, for making this happen so quickly, as well as Colleen, the security guys (don’t ask!), Amy the wonder makeup artist, and of course the ultra-professional & friendly Bill Henley, who can look straight into the eyes of a super-caffeinated, fast-talkin’ frugalista without fear. Thanks a million, Bill! Click here to catch the segment!
