Video production is very time consuming so in August when I decided to produce tutorial videos for this blog, I planned to complete 12 tutorials before September 1st and then start publishing one each week. Since hard drives can crash, I thought the best strategy would be to upload the finished videos to You Tube but mark them “private” until the day I was ready to publish them. This “Beaded Sandals” video took a long time to upload, however, and while I was waiting, I decided to make a quick trip to the restroom. When I came back to the computer, the video had finished processing and it had already received a viewing. “How can that be?” I wondered. Then I noticed that there was also a comment. I clicked on the link and found encouraging words from my doll mentor, Vanessa of Van’s Doll Treasures. I subscribe to her You Tube channel so I won’t miss any of her excellent doll dramas. I guess she happened to be on-line in You Tube and could see that I had uploaded a new video in the short interval before I could mark it private. What a coincidence!
Two months later here is the official premiere of “Beaded Sandals:”
After watching the “Action Figure Sandals” tutorial, Hippolyta on Figurvore made 20 pairs! If you make any of these “Beaded Sandals,” I would love to see the pictures.
