A couple of months back the local ABC affiliate came and interviewed me and it ran this week on the 5:00 news and the next day on Good Morning Indiana.  I was on for over 3 minutes, which if you watch the news, know that is an eternity!  And they didn’t even make me look like a dumpster divin’ freak. Bonus! I thought a few of you (my grandma, mother-in-law and sister) might want to see it.

    you do. Great Job!

  7. loved the entire piece. nicely done and gave it the importance that it deserved. This is always an importantphilosophy but with the current financial most folks find themselves in it is a means of giving others hope for giving their lives more beauty. I would say it definitely ties in with being a pastor’s wife. THANK YOU

  8. The piece was really excellent Beckie! As an FYI — the station plugged the story during 2 episodes of Judge Judy.

  9. Hi! Its so nice to meet you, thank you for visiting, I came right back to see you!! You asked if I sell my work, I did at one time but I don’t any longer,
    this was an amazing interview, I will enjoy following along on your adventures,

  10. What a great story on your local news! I had no idea you had these 3 sites of which I am a follower…guess I don’t look at the right side too often…duh! Congrats, and I follow you religiously……. I live in Mexico, and can’t cruise the streets to find stuff like you do in Indiana (people don’t put stuff on the streets) but I always have my eyes open!

  11. What a wonderful story! How exciting to be on the news! You are an inspiration to many many women and it is so cool that you are getting this extra attention outside of blogland. I am so happy for you. 🙂

  12. Just discovered your blog (ah..blogs…who knew?) this year & love it…I’m not a blogger, don’t have a upcycling business or anything related…I’m a voyeur reveling at your vision to see whole new uses for ordinary (sometimes broken) items that have been discarded. Your TV interview was terrific, you were so professional..didn’t come off as a ‘weird dumpster diver’ at all! I might even try to copy an idea or two. Thanks so much.

  13. Congratulations, that’s awesome!! I actually looked up in a church once and saw the same lights that you made into a garbage can. I totally thought of you!!

  14. That was a great interview Beckie! I loved getting more of a peek into your beautiful home, and it was fun to see Tim too!

  15. Wow, you’re famous! Well, you already are, but now everyone knows. 😉 What a wonderful story about your blog and ‘career’. You look fabulous and sound fantastic. Great interview!
    Debbie 🙂
