What’s This All About? Who is so Confused 86


I have seen many comments on Facebook and even Twitter recently where some of you feel you maybe out of the loop a little bit. I hate to keep folks in the dark though I can’t reveal EVERYTHING happening, I can share little bits and pieces here and there!

Let me start by sharing some of the pics you’ve seen floating around and explain a little more details to some very exciting things that are, well, they are thanks to each one of your comments, love and support that dreams keep coming true! ๐Ÿ™‚

Last year Ambient Light production company and I embarked on a journey that has been changing my life! ย I can not share all of the details and all of the people involved in this, BUT, I’ll share a few things that I’ve let out some of this past year, and I’ll give you a little more now! ย You all are my family and friends and this wouldn’t be possible with out all your love and support either!

Drummmmrolllll pllleeeasseee…..

We are in the process of a producing and recording a television show called Enjoy the Moments with Megan Elizabeth.ย 

This show has not yet been picked up by any networks, but there are goals and lots of amazing plans in place. ย We have been having meetings with the most incredible industry leading professionals and we so look forward to watching this explode!

I have been able to meet with several amazing producers and executives of shows like Ricki Lake’s, Rachael Ray’s and have even gone for talent coaching/training with the SmithGieger group out in California, they have worked with people like Ellen DeGeneres and Jay Leno (just to name drop a bit) and it was incredible learning from them!

I am excited for many more meetings and interviews with Executive Producers of major shows and networks these next few months and your support and love are paramount to this being successful and getting craft TV back on our televisions and internet streams!

I posted this a little while ago – but here is a tiny 1 minute NON-EDITED clip from the pilot of the show – just for a TASTE of what we are thinking for parts of this show. Everything from guests, step by step scrapbooking and DIY tutorials, travel, a whole bunch of greatness all in one Enjoying the Moments place!

YouTube Preview Image

I would LOVE to hear your feedback and thoughts! ย Ideas and support all in the comments or on Facebook.com/FollowAboveRubies – also don’t forget @byMeganE for Twitter or Pinterest ๐Ÿ™‚

I just have to mention – when I started AboveRubiesStudio.com a few years ago, I had no idea at all where this road was going to take me. ย Ever since I was a little girl I knew I wanted to inspire and encourage women especially in everyday life. ย I wanted to help friends learn, but mostly feel empowered and sincerely inspired. ย You all have been my family and my support and encouragement to show me I can do that! Television isn’t about “becoming a star” for me, not nearly as much as it is about how many more people that can be reached, touched and inspired to enjoy! That is what energizes me and excites me more than anything else!!!! You have no idea! Televisions absolutely excites me to my wildest extremes! ย It is where I feel alive and comfortable, talking to the camera makes me feel like I am talking to you, my friends, my followers, my family of scrapbookers and crafters!

It’s because of you this is possible, so once again, from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!

I hope we can Enjoy the Moments in this together so very soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    All I can say is “WOW”, you go girl. It seems anything you touch turns to gold. This is a BRILLIANT Idea and so badly needed. Martha Stewart, many, many years ago on her show, would have some type of Crafting project and I really enjoyed it. Since then, the only way we can see anything close, to what you are working on now, is to search You Tube, which was a pain.

    This is going to be the most successful TV Program around for Crafters. I think most people have a DVR now days so I don’t think the Day or Time will be important. I personally record any type of crafting program so I can go back and view it again. I can’t even tell you how many times I go back to your BLOG or Website to view your demonstrations.

    I love watching your demonstrations for your ideas but what really sets you apart from all the others, is your positive, down to earth and bubbly personality. You are truly a pleasure to watch. You will have so many followers on your TV Program not to mention, so many new viewers.

    You are truly blessed to have the support of your family. I know none of this would be possible without their support. Your children are so beautiful and happy, and it shows in your photos and when they make their very rare appearance in your videos, LOL

    You are a wonderful inspiration for all women, showing that anything is possible, maybe not easy but definitely possible. I am very proud of you and wish you the best of luck.

    One more thing, since you will no doubt become a famous celebrity, can I have your autograph now. This way I can say “yes, Megan and I are very close, I have know her for years” LOL

    I just can’t wait, this is going to be a blast.

  • Shirley E.

    Like! Like! Like! How awesome is that? I sure hope that when this, yet another dream of your, comes true that we will be able to get the “channel” in Canada!
    We don’t get HSN on TV, have to watch online, plus many other awesome shows.
    Love the new hair doo Megan, your so pretty!
    Good Luck and God Bless!

  • Carme

    I am so happy and excited for you! I barely watch any television right now, but this is one show that I will never miss! You allready have a tremendous amount of fans, and when you go on television, I am sure that you will be the most watched Craft Show out there! I can not wait to see it! Please don’t ever forget all of us who knew you when~ You mean so much to me and I wouldnt know half of the techniques and tricks that I know if it weren’t for you!
    There is just something about you that is so fun to watch ~ You make creating look so easy! I am so thankful to have you in my life, Megan~ You are a huge Blessing to me~ and even though I have never met you personally, I feel like you are a really close friend~
    Hugs and Prayers for Success~ Carmen

  • Lori Finch

    I can’t wait for this to happen! It will happen! Because it is awesome! I agree with a previous poster….youtube is the only place out there for stuff like this and it is a pain.
    Thanks for thinking of us, and working so hard to make it happen. The clip is awesome! Keep up the good work!

  • Gina

    You’ve come so far from that room that I think was upstairs in your house to now. My sisters and I love to scrap and when I first started watching your youtube videos. I kept telling them they have to watch you. You are truly an inspiration and you are so very talented. I hope and pray that a network will pick this up. I cant wait to start watching. I’m so very happy for you and your family. Gina

  • Kathy T

    I love it! I was hoping you were going to say that it was a new craft show. Awesome idea!!!! Do you remember the Carol Duval craft show? I loved watching that show and have missed it so much since they took it off the air. I have always hoped you would host your own craft show. You are so talented and inspire us with your love of teaching and knowledge of crafting. Yea! I will be on the sidelines cheering you on! Go Megan!!!! Go Meagan!!!!

  • Bernie

    I can”t wait. My prayers are with you for the greatest success. I love crafting and share with family and friends. God Bless you.

  • Lea

    Thanks for the update! I know it hasn’t gone as quickly, as smoothly or as effortlessly as it may appear to us strangers cheering you on from the etherlands. We all have faced personal or professional set backs–and most often both. You set a bright example of hanging in, keeping faithful and striving to enjoy what can be enjoyed through whatever comes. It’s clear you have thrown a lot of energy into your goals–you are very relate-able and a broader audience is waiting in the wings. Best to you, Megan ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sue Anderson

    Totally Awesome! Congratulations! You inspired me 2 years ago when I happened across one of your videos… I bought a Cricut and some craft paper (I had NO crafting supplies). Now crafting has brought me back from the abyss! Thank you for inspiring me. I wish you all the luck and love in the world; and I WILL be following you! ๐Ÿ™‚ ~Hugs~

  • Margaret UK

    Congratulations to such a talented lady. I follow you every day from the UK. I have learnt so much from you, and your videos are phenomenal. Good Luck with everything you do, but most of all enjoy it! Hugs Margaret

  • Janine B

    I would love to see craft demonstrations on the TV in the UK – all we seem to get is the sales shows where you see a total of about 5 minutes crafting and 55 minutes repetitive sales pitch – yuck! I hope it all works out well for you and it goes global!

  • Margie

    Good luck and God bless. You have inspired and encouraged me to try new things, and use what I have more efficiently and effectively. Just one more thing to say -You go girl!!

  • Pat Thornton

    What wonderful news! I certainly hope your show is picked up by a network as we need craft tv so much more than some (ugh) new reality show. I watch every Youtube video you make and have tried to watch everyone youmever made. i am glad to say i am making progress with that. i have learned so much watching you in these videos. i love you DVDs as well. You are a true natural in front of the camera.
    I wish you the best and hope to see you really soon on tv.

  • BethAnn M

    Congratulations and Good Luck, Megan! When I bought my Expression back in 2009, your DVD Cricut A-Z was very helpful to me. I told anyone who was interested in a Cricut that this DVD was a “must-have”. PC should have included it in the box. Your videos and tutorials have provided lots of information and inspiration to us paper crafters. I am sure that your show will find a spot in TV-land, and I can’t wait to watch. Again, good luck and keep up the great work. BethAnn

  • Catherine

    Megan,
    I have followed you for the last three ish years. You have come so far and have had so many wonderful products and ideas. Also, I find your encouragement in all that life hands you so inspiring. You have a faith that can move mountains and that faith just shines through in all that you do. This new adventure is a great platform to inspire crafting and the memorable moments of people’s lives. You exude such a positive, faith filled attitude it will sure to inspire many people. I love to read your post and even when obstacles are put in your path you just keep climbing the mountain.

  • Ruth Davis

    Can’t wait I know it is going to be incredible I love your videos and to think of having a whole show on TV would be so wonderful. You definitely deserve it because you have helped people like me so much. Good luck and I will be watching both your website and FB.

  • Liz

    YAY! This is great news, Megan! You have a down-to-earth way about you that I think makes people feel like they are hanging out with a new friend. I can’t wait for your announcement that the show has been picked up and when it airs! Happy Easter and Blessings to you & your family! Liz

  • Deborah Horn

    YAY!!!!!!

    Way to go Megan! You have worked hard to reach this goal. Your dreams will come true! I promise to never miss an episode. This is so long over-due for us crafters. We need inspiration. You always deliver and make everything look so inviting and easy to accomplish. Blessings on this new endeavor.
    This will be better than my daily dose of Star-Bucks Coffee. Hooray!!!!!!!!

    All my prayers to keep moving forward! And for any net-work who picks this up, blessings to them, they have no idea how many will be tuned in. Are they ever in for a blessed surprise. Can you tell how excited I am? Gee, I can hardly wait! I have so much faith in you and your abilities, I am going to go this weekend and purchase a small TV for my craft studio. I don’t want to miss anything. I believe in looking ahead and being prepared.

    Debbie Horn

  • Brenda

    OMGosh, I would so love to see crafty shows back on TV!!! We haven’t really had anything since the Carol Duval Show! Megan you will be great and I pray that the networks pick you up cause I think this will be a huge hit!! You go girl!!!

  • Marti Moore

    I also remember “The Carol Duvall Show” and miss it. You are the new face of paper crafters and I really look forward to you having a show on T.V. Good luck. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  • LoriCtoo

    Oh my goodness, I was just thinking about this the other day. There aren’t any craft shows on, not since Carol Duvall. I used to watch her faithfully. That’s where most of us learned of Tim Holtz! I saw a scapbook show ONE day on PBS, but could never find it again. They moved it around so much I never did see it again. Then there was that crazy Michael’s craft-off show with Tori Spelling, which I don’t need to go into

    This would be awesome and I wish you the best in this new adventure. All of us crafters are cheering for your!

  • Jane Dubois

    Megan, you have taken your tutorials and made them bigger and will inspire more people to create wonderful and amazing projects. You are the spark that has set me in motion. I am in the process of creating cards to sell at our Town’s Old Home Day this coming fall. It is a beginning that I hope will blossom for me. Anyone who sees a card that I created always tells me that I should sell them. You have given me a marvelous example of success that I’m hoping to eventually grow into. Thank you, thank you and thank you again.

  • kim

    A craft show has been needed for a long time. Good luck and congrats on all your success. All I can say is, ” You Go Girl!” ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Margie Rogers

    Hope it gets picked up fast ! I watch all programs that have anything to do with paper crafting ! And you’ll be great on TV !

  • Debbie J

    Good luck, Megan!! I have been following you since Above Ruby Studios when you helped me and so many others with answers to our problems (no matter how small) and let us show our work to others. I remember the Carol Duvall show and when it went off the air I missed it-there is nothing like it and I hope you and your new show turn into it and become a huge success. You deserve it!!

  • MommyMe

    This is so exciting! I hope producers and executives will see the value in this kind of programming! There are so many home improvement shows on air and I think that speaks to the fact that the DIY attitude is prevalent. For me, that extends to crafting.

    Following you on your journey has brought me a great deal of joy over the years. I pray for your continued success!

  • Sandy Scott

    Congratulations Megan I am so happy for you! A friend and I were talking this week about how we missed all the craft shows that use to be on TV. We need your show!

  • lois

    Oh my!!!! Memories of Carol Duvall and Aileen’s!!!!!!
    I miss these shows. I know from your videos you will make a great Hostess and the show will be a great success. Do you need us to do a write in campaign to anyone???? Looking forward to the announcement of your show starting!!!!!
    Best Wishes

  • arlene ranaldi

    I was thinking about this the other day..funny. I miss the Carol Duvall and Aileen’s show. Now there is nothing! I am very excited for you and the possibility of a paper craft show starting on tv!!!!
    I wish you the best….you feel like a personal friend and I am very happy for you. Kudos to you!!!!!

  • Wanda

    What wonderful news! I hope it all goes smoothly, the crafting community is huge and I hope the executives take a leap of faith. It will be great to watch you, and there are many crafters out there who are not hooked up to the internet (I know, hard to believe) that would benefit from all your knowledge. Good luck, and God bless, from your cheering section.

  • Maryann

    I hope somebody picks up your show soon! It’s been so long since I’ve found a papercrafting/scrapbooking show on television – can’t wait!

  • Betty

    Wow! This is great, how I would love to have a whole hour of scrapping & card making. I would watch every day. I don’t watch much T.V. in the day as nothing much to interest me. I card make as much as possible. It can not come fast enough for me. Long over due. All scrappers and card making people spend big money to go to weekend retreats to see how it is all done and what is new going on in the craft world. We hunt the internet all the time for a few minutes of instruction. This is wounderful. What a great idea. Good luck to your success and hurry. Joyful, Betty

  • terry wood

    WOW! ALL I CAN SAY IS GOD IS GOOD, RIGHT? BRINGS TO MIND A TEXT; SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. IT’S NOT EASY ALWAYS, BUT YOU ARE ALWAYS SO POSITIVE, EVEN IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY . (HOPE YOUR HAND IS FEELING BETTER). I LOVE WATCHING DIY CRAFTING SHOWS. YOU WILL BE A GREAT HOSTESS FOR A SHOW LIKE THIS. YOU HAVE A HUGE FOLLOWING ALREADY. CAN HARDLY WAIT!! GOD BLESS YOUR EFFORTS!! TERRY W.

  • Linda W

    Congratulations to you. What super fantastic news! Since Carol Duvall came off the air, I haven’t since a good crafting show. Good luck to your new venture.

  • Linda W

    Congratulations to you. What super fantastic news! Since Carol Duvall came off the air, I haven’t since seen a good crafting show. Good luck to your new venture.

  • Maria

    Fingers crossed that this takes off for you. I miss the Sandi Genovese and Carol Duvall days, I was hooked. Saddened me to realize that crafting days were over for TV. Now the thought of it coming back, well lets just say, I will be DVR’ing it, if I’m not home to watch. I support you and wish you lots of luck!!!!
    Two thumbs up for Megan, woot, woot!!!!

    Smiles,
    Maria

  • Diana K

    You go girl. Hope it all works out. just a question though, On the cropped weekend you mentioned doing stuff with the Pazzle is that still in the works?

  • Karla aka Scrappynut

    I am soooo excited for you Megan! This will be an awesome show, I’m sure. I’ve been following you for quite some time, and I have been inspired by so much that you have shown us! I look forward to your new show, and I hope it’s soon! Congratulations!

  • Chris

    This is so exciting, Megan! I can’t wait. I have followed you and loved all you do. Can’t wait for this to work out. Congrats and enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jackie Yingling

    I am looking forward to seeing more! There are no paper crafting shows out there so this would be awesome! Love your videos, tricks and tips. Congratulations Megan!

  • Pat Carella

    You are a prime example of God blessing people with a heart for Him and others. As for finding a network…why not just start YOUR OWN….just sayin’…LOL. Will be praying for strength and guidance in the road ahead. You are an inspiration and blessing to so many of us.

  • Lisa Kay

    I was NOT confused… I knew you were up to wonderful things… YOU inspire me! Several years ago I was doing a search for help to work my Baby Bug and your name came up…I bought it and as your new videos we were released I bought them too… then Megan Elizabeth products came out wow! As someone who has followed you from almost the beginning I am so proud of you! Thank you!

  • Cheryl Cicioni

    Hi Megan,
    Wonderful news. I was just thinking that it would be wonderful to have another crafting program on like the Carol Duval Show. I found that one too late and then it was gone! We crafters need to unite. Much of today’s TV programming really stinks. There is no creativity or imagination put into it. With how the cooking shows took off recently, there must be support from the crafters out there for craft programs. The thousands of blogs and websites out on the internet are proof that there is much interest for this type of show. I wish you luck.

  • Vivian Kaufman

    I always thought you should be on TV. I llok forward to having crafts back on TV. I don’t watch much TV since the crafting shows are all gone. I will be praying that God will open many doors or you to share the gifts that he has given to you. I will also pray for your family as they travel through this journey with you.

  • Maxine Wallis

    That would be awesome. The only scrapbook show that is running on TV right now does very little with pages. They seem to have gone more to decorative items.

  • Colleen

    Hi Megan

    I hope you aspire to all of your dreams. I may have been among one of the confused. Several days ago I posted to one of your videos to please remember to post all of your information and news to your blog/website as there are some of us out there that do not belong to any form of social media (twitter, Facebook, etc). We want to be kept in the loop along with all of the social sites, so we don’t miss anything. When you make a conscience decision to protect your family as much as possible from social media, it can often lead to discrimination because various places will say you need to post something on Facebook to be included- so yes there are times we are left out and don’t know all that is going on.
    So, please, please try and include all of your “friends and family” in all forms of communication.
    Much Success and Happiness!

  • Rose

    GO FOR IT!. I think you will be fantastic in this type of program, and I lke your motivation for doing it – not to make yourself famous, but to inspire and encourage others. You are already successful at doing that, but this would give you a bigger audience. I think that is AWESOME.

  • Julie

    WOW is right! And how did I know that when I started watching Above Rubies Studio way back when that you would be evolving like you have to eventually TV. You need to be picked up by a women’s channel or DIY! Talk about inspiring me and my husband! DIY and HGTV are on almost 24/7 in this household. It’s were all our ideas come from. Good luck and I hope to see you soon on the telly. And no I’m not British. Ohioan! LOL!

  • Tianna

    You go girl! You are amazing! I’m sure when it’s ready to share all the details then everything will be out and about – and we’ll all be celebrating the moment!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have loved the little sneak peeks via twitter, facebook and/or instagram! Keep at it girl!

    Tianna

  • Debra Lovell

    Your a natural!!! Im soooo excited for you and for us as well! We Need a Craft show!! Just make sure its gonna be on a channel that we all get.I no longer get hallmark,(Martha Stewart) was on…so please consider that! Best Wishes!! and Big {{HUGS}}

  • Robin

    Megan, a couple of years ago, I don’t even know how it happened, but I stumbled across your tutorials and Above Rubies Studio! I was SO blessed by you and your enthusiasm for your children and keeping the memories of motherhood alive through scrapbooking. You ARE more precious than rubies!!!!!

    I am not sure about the difficult times that you have faced recently, but you have done it with faithfulness that has not wavered and it is so evident and is an inspiration to us!!!

    I KNOW that this endeavor will be successful and you will be blessed and BE a blessing to all crafters out there!

    Happy Easter to you and your family!

    Robin

  • Alison Portelli

    Oh Megan!…I can’t wait to hear that you get ‘picked up’!! (not literally!)…and I hope and pray that down here in Australia we get to see it to. Yeah sure you can search for almost anything you want to learn on youtube…but it is so time consuming to search for each individual item and then go through to find which video explains whatever you’re looking for ‘the best’….I can’t wait for you to get this show and let all of us watch, learn and have fun along side you every episode!! Sending good luck wished your way…….Ali

  • Harlene M Schwartz

    I am so happy for you. You deserve all these good things that have been happening for you. Hope the TV show gets picked up. Go girl! You rock!

  • Patricia

    WOW! I knew you were going places, you are so dedicated, fun and creative. Good luck with the new show because I know you will get in. I hope I will be able to get it I will sure be watching. Keep us inform and good luck. Great job!

  • Wanda M.

    I sure hope this venture will be picked up by a network. People that are not crafters do not realize how important a show like this would be for those that are. I am so thankful to HSN for realizing this and having crafting shows on the air. What a boost for the manufacturers and the network. There is NOTHING on TV for crafters. How exciting it would be to sit back, relax and see a 30 to 60 minute show showing how to use products and projects being made. I am a follower of Above Rubies Studio and I have your DVD’s and you have a way of explaining products that really help a person use them. Thank you for all that you do for us and I’ll be praying for you! God bless.

  • Millie

    I am so happy for your success I started paper crafting and learning about cricut and all the different machine and basically all I know about card making and like I said paper crafting I learned from you it all stated with you.I would like to say thank you and I am so happy The Lord has blessed you so,you deserve it. God bless.
    Hugs,Millie

  • Melanie

    Great idea. There really aren’t any craft shows anymore and it is very sad. There are so many crafters out there, and sometimes we need help and inspiration to get us motivated. Your videos always supply that and I am quite sure that a TV show will do the same. I am really excited about this and hope all goes well for you.
