What’s Happening Today – June 3, 2016
Today on DelmarvaLife:
It’s National Donut Day and we’ve got a surprise for our studio audience!
Professional Photographer, Haley Scrimgeour, stops by the DelmarvaLife studio to tell us about her photography business, “A Farm Girl’s Photos.” Haley tells us all about the history behind the name of her business and what inspired her to start her business. She specializes in maternity, family, engagement, and pet photos. She also enjoys “picking” at antique shows to find props.
Haley also gives Jimmy a portrait photography lesson!
We’ve got another “pupdate” for you today! We share some great adoption stories with you and in today’s Pet Connect, maybe you will find a furry friend of your own to adopt.
DelmarvaLife’s Brittany Siegel tells us how to make a crafty addition to your front door this summer. We’re making a a no-sew watermelon wreath. Here’s what you will need to make a wreath along with us on the show today:
- For a full-sized wreath, find a 16-inch foam wreath. This one we’re using today is 12-inches.
- You’ll need 1/2 yard each of crafting felt in two shades of green
- 3/4 yard of crafting felt in hot pink
- 1 small square of black felt
- Fabric glue
- Twine to hang the wreath.
- First step is to cut the felt in strips that are 2 inches wide and 18 inches long if you are using yard fabric — since we are using the squares, they are only 12 inches long so for this project, two inches by twelve inches. We will need 28 hot pink strips, 18 dark green strips, and 8 light green strips. This doesn’t have to be exact science. If you have some left over – don’t panic.
- Tie the strips to the wreath using double knots and wiggle them up or down in opposite directions so the knots aren’t right next to each other.
- Cover the bottom part of the wreath by alternating two dark green strips with one light green to resemble the outer portion of a watermelon.
- Fill in the top part with the pink strips.
- Finish it off by cutting seed shapes from the black felt and gluing them at random to the pink portion using fabric glue!
Sean Streicher stops by Vernon Powell to learn all about what they are doing for the month of June. Vernon Powell in Salisbury, Md. will be collecting gently-worn shoes to donate to local charities such as Urban Ministries and the Salvation Army of Salisbury. President and Owner, Joe Wright, tells Sean all about the shoe drive that is taking place now through June 30, 2016. Just to say “thanks” for donating shoes, you will receive a 10% coupon to use at Vernon Powell.
We’ve got a talented group of kids in our studio audience today from Rehoboth Elementary School. Walt Hetfield and Ken Schleifer are music teachers at Rehoboth Elementary and this group of kids are part of an after-school jazz band program. We hear them perform on the show today!
Hope you enjoy the show!
