Weekend Things

I’ve had a lot of new and exciting things going on this week.  I’ve been working on a trailer for my book.  Reverse engineering shots that I like and trying to find just the right outfits and props and all of it has been new and fun.  (I might have to do more of this so I can get better at it).  Among the endless book trailer videos that I have watched this week, this one for BJ Novak’s new book stood out.  My book trailer will be nothing like this — but I am so hopeful it will turn out just a charming.   I’m off for more filming today and through the weekend.  What are you up to?  Here are some other fun things that crossed my path this week.

And one last thing – Studio ‘g’ was name one of the Top 5 Garden Blogs according to Better Homes and Gardens.  There is a voting thing to name a winner.  We’d love it if you could support us (by voting regularly) for a reader’s choice award. 

– Rochelle

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Funny book trailer. I wonder how much the production costs ran?

    And yes, I totally agree with that list.

    Hey Rochelle,
    If you ever are up at Dartmouth Collge, there is a fantastic coffee house across from the commons. I cannot remember the name but the cup of joe will leave you buzzing for hours.

    First, you should smoke. Second, of course, speak French. Third, have credits. I can’t wait to see your book trailer ( honestly, I never even heard of a book trailer until you mentioned it!). I hate doing video, but I’m sure that you will have more charm and grace in front of the camera than I do! Congrats on your Better Homes and Gardens nomination! I’m gonna go vote for you now! Well deserved.
