TODAY Show Video

Ladies (and gents), thank you so much for all your moral support the last few days. It meant a lot knowing so many of you were cheering us on through your television sets. We have read each and every encouraging messaging coming through emails, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, texts, oh my! We truly feel so connected to you all! :)


Everyone else seemed like seasoned pros in comparison. When I sat down to write my pitch, it turned out to be a 5+ minute love letter of my passion for stamping and how ME is striving to make a positive impact with the people who share our love for creating. It was a difficult task to truncate all of that to 30 seconds. I'm sorry if I didn't do us justice. :( I probably won't rewatch the video again due to embarrassment, LOL. But yay, we move on to next week! Someone please hold our hands!

Be sure to catch Marcus Lemonis and his season 2 premier of The Profit on NBC tonight at 10PM EST! He's awesome and such an inspiration!

  23. Congrats on a job well done! Since stamping is not as widespread as eating burgers and snacks you might want to mention the industry and how you have the support of the industry leaders (Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner, etc.) and your followers and how you are growing

  35. I NEVER watch the today show, but somehow my TV was on right as this segment started. I caught the ME logo before changing the channel.
    I took a class where we had to envision our own businesses and at the end of the class we had to do and 30 second pitch. It was extremely difficult to do in front our our Dean, other professors, and classmates for a fictitious business. I cannot imagine doing it on live TV for a real business. I think you guys did a great job! I am so happy you were not cut. I wish the best of luck next week.

  41. I'm glad that you posted the video clip. I missed seeing the actual broadcast. So proud of you both for moving onto the next round. I read in the comments that several people (professionals) offered their services to help you with next weeks taping. If someone is offering their help, take it. Who knows, you could win this thing. Good luck to both of you!
