Mew Gets Some Local Press–Danbury News Times

Danbury News Times articleA few weeks ago I pitched a rough story idea to my local newspaper, and lo and behold they picked it up!  With Valentine’s Day around the corner I wanted to encourage area residents to buy local, and have some fun with what many view as a “dreaded Hallmark holiday”.  I scheduled an appointment with the reporter to come with a photographer on a Friday and I looked forward to it all week.  When I had dinner with a friend the Wednesday before she said “Good luck with your interview tomorrow” and I reminded her that it was Friday, not Thursday.

Um, wrong.  Thursday was supposed to be my day to get the studio all cleaned up and picture-ready.  And then the doorbell rang.  There stood the reporter and photographer right on time–I had totally mixed up my dates!  The studio was a disaster, I was a disaster and I feared that the whole press opp would end in disaster!  Thank goodness that they had a sense of humor, and spared me five minutes to put on a better shirt and a bit of lipstick!  With a little quick photo styling (which really just means that I shoved all the piles of crap off of my desk onto the floor) you’d never know.

So, if you’re local to the Danbury/Bethel area, pick up a copy of today’s paper.  Or, just check out the link on the News Times website.
