The day of, we were greeted by sunshine and lovely winter weather. The Strömsö-house is to die for, inside and out!
And I love that they have this saying on the wall.
It was so exciting to get to be on a TV-show! We had butterflies all morning.We changed into our clothes for the shooting, and then we got to go to hair and makeup.
My daughter really enjoyed herself and took lots of pictures – she only recently got a smart phone and Instagram, so she was really eager to document everything!
It was also very fun to get the make up done by a professional! And Mari who did the make up was so nice!
All through the house, the staff was busy making the studio ready for the shooting.
We got to wander around and enjoy all the loveliness.
While the camera crew set up everything. The sun was shining straight through the big windows and french doors, so they had to add screens.
Lots and lots of cameras and lights and whatnots.
And that lovely, lovely kitchen – swoon!
They also took pictures for the article on their site.
Mari made me feel so pretty!
She did my hair and makeup just the way I wanted it – I felt pampered and so well taken care of!
Then it was almost time for the shooting! My daughter wore one of my latest necklaces – a yellow one, that I made out of old bracelets, an old earring and assorted beads.
We got to watch in the kitchen as the crew set up the cameras and zoomed in on my DIY-jewelry – how cool is that?!
Then it was time for the filming.
I got to look behind the scenes in the room where they direct the show.
”Hi Nosipho!” – my daughter and Elin waved to me through the camera!
They shot Elin arranging jewelry and doing the ”menu” and all kinds of TV-technical stuff which all had their own terminology.
It was fun getting to watch close hand at what goes on behind the scenes of a TV-show.
Then it was time to get going! We sat around the table, created our own jewelry and chatted.
It was so much fun! My daughter got to borrow my camera, and she took pictures of Elin and me sewing beads during the lunch hour.
And then we shot the final images, of the finished products, and the filming was done.
We changed into our traveling clothes (we went back home to Southern Finland the same evening), packed up all my stuff and off we went.
It was such an amazing experience! The crew at Strömsö are so nice and accommodating, and this was such a fun adventure for both my daughter and I. You all took such good care of us, even when I got a splitting migraine headache in the middle of the filming <3 Hope to meet you all again someday!
You can watch the show online here.
