    Hi Everyone!

    Here is our chat transcript from our Judy Crowell live chat which took place at the JTV studio on Fri Oct 14th!

    Everyone at JTV was soooo fantastic! Really friendly and genuine! What an amazing team there! :clap2:

    We learned a lot of goodies from Judy – including how Paul Deasy, her former shopping show host and hubby since 2003, asked her out :teehee:

    Happy reading!

    Tampa: On your last QVC, Paul came out and gave you flowers. Did you know he would?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:24 PM
    JudyCrowell: I could see him out of the corner of my eye, so I was aware…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:25 PM
    JudyCrowell: But, not before I went on the air to host my last show.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:25 PM
    JudyCrowell: We were married just 6 months prior to that show.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:25 PM
    JudyCrowell: But, I don’t think any of the customers knew at the time.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:25 PM
    JudyCrowell: We kept it very hush hush

    Oct 14 2011, 7:25 PM
    JudyCrowell: At least people might have known I had gotten married…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:26 PM
    JudyCrowell: but they didn’t know to whom!!!!!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:26 PM

    Oct 14 2011, 7:27 PM
    rntc: Hi Judy! I loved watching you when you were on QVC! When did you start exploring your new role with JTV?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:27 PM
    JudyCrowell: This past Spring.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:28 PM
    JudyCrowell: We started talking about ideas and then it became very easy to make a decision.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:28 PM
    JudyCrowell: So, it was just a matter of timing.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:28 PM
    JudyCrowell: It’s PERFECT now. I think I made the right decision.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:28 PM
    Michelle_Host: Well…I can say…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:29 PM

    Oct 14 2011, 7:29 PM
    tennisMaggie: Hi Judy, like everyone else I loved watching you on the Q! Can you tell us some on the funniest things that happened on the air?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:29 PM
    JudyCrowell: That’s a challenge

    Oct 14 2011, 7:29 PM
    Michelle_Host: ((Judy is thinking lol))

    Oct 14 2011, 7:29 PM
    JudyCrowell: I was selling a porcelain doll one time that sucked its thumb.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:30 PM
    JudyCrowell: When I pulled the thumb out of its mouth, the entire jaw broke off.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:30 PM
    JudyCrowell: I was mortified!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:30 PM
    JudyCrowell: And, of course, the camera was on an extreme close-up.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:30 PM
    JudyCrowell: So, all I could say was “It’s very fragile. So, don’t do what I just did!!”

    Oct 14 2011, 7:30 PM
    JudyCrowell: And, we moved on.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:31 PM
    Michelle_Host: lol…nice save though!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:31 PM
    JudyCrowell: It’s live TV you never know what will happen.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:31 PM
    Michelle_Host: Exactly…

    JudyCrowell: I’m hoping we’ll be able to bring some footage of being at the Gem Mines or at The Trade Shows to the show.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:32 PM
    JudyCrowell: It’s always very interesting to take our customers on a journey with us.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:32 PM
    JudyCrowell: Nancy, be sure to watch JTV on your computer.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:32 PM
    JudyCrowell: On the Home Page, there’s a WATCH US LIVE button.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:33 PM
    JudyCrowell: Hopefully, it’ll work for you at your convenience.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:33 PM
    Michelle_Host: and next we have…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:33 PM
    love2shop: Do you have to prepare much before a show? What is your typical day like when you are hosting?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:34 PM
    JudyCrowell: Well, I’m not a Host any longer. It’s actually a very interesting new phase of my life being a Guest.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:34 PM
    JudyCrowell: But, yes, I still have a lot to prepare before a show.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:34 PM
    JudyCrowell: I meet with the Buyer many many times about all the products…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:34 PM
    JudyCrowell: And, we talk about the history of all the jewelry… how it was designed, how we acquired the gemstones

    Oct 14 2011, 7:35 PM
    JudyCrowell: How we chose which stones will go into which pieces, etc.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:35 PM
    JudyCrowell: I love being on the other side and so involved in the products themselves.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:35 PM
    JudyCrowell: My days are long, though, I will tell you that….

    Oct 14 2011, 7:36 PM
    JudyCrowell: Because after we meet to talk about the jewelry, THEN I have to go meet with the hosts, do hair and makeup…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:36 PM
    JudyCrowell: And then, sometimes I have three or four shows in one day…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:36 PM
    JudyCrowell: I’m a tired puppy at the end of my trips to JTV. But, it’s a good tired.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:36 PM
    Michelle_Host: A cute tired puppy lol

    Oct 14 2011, 7:36 PM
    Michelle_Host: I’m going to cheat…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:36 PM
    Michelle_Host: and ask another question…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:37 PM
    Michelle_Host: What are the biggest differences…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:37 PM
    Michelle_Host: to you…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:37 PM
    Michelle_Host: between being a host…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:37 PM
    Michelle_Host: and a guest?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:37 PM
    JudyCrowell: The host has a specific job and a specific schedule 5 days a week.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:37 PM
    JudyCrowell: And, they MUST live in the town where the Studio is located.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:38 PM
    JudyCrowell: As a guest, I am more directly involved with the products of just Stratify and Blooming Jewels.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:38 PM
    JudyCrowell: A host basically presents all the lines that are put in front of them… they have to know EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:38 PM
    JudyCrowell: It’s tougher than it looks to be a host!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:38 PM
    JudyCrowell: Now?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:39 PM
    JudyCrowell: Well, I get to play a little more, and I have a little more freedom.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:39 PM
    JudyCrowell: I travel more.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:40 PM
    Michelle_Host: We love learning about all the…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:40 PM
    Michelle_Host: behind the scenes and how tv shopping really works!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:40 PM
    Michelle_Host: Thanks, Judy!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:40 PM
    Michelle_Host: Next…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:40 PM
    meTime: I can only imagine if I were a tv shopping host for any of these networks I would be like a kid in a candy store, how often did you find yourself tempted and how often did you give in to temptation?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:40 PM
    JudyCrowell: I know. It’s a fascinating business. Really

    Oct 14 2011, 7:41 PM
    JudyCrowell: Frequently. hahaha

    Oct 14 2011, 7:41 PM
    Michelle_Host: Next…

    JudyCrowell: Because I LOVE to shop!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:42 PM
    Michelle_Host: You’re in the right crowd!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:42 PM
    Michelle_Host: Ladies…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:42 PM
    Michelle_Host: Judy is having computer issues…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:42 PM
    Michelle_Host: she is burning out her computer with her fast typing…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:43 PM
    Michelle_Host: so she is logging on…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:43 PM
    Michelle_Host: again…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:43 PM
    Michelle_Host: let’s give it a minute

    Oct 14 2011, 7:44 PM
    JudyCrowell: I’m back. Sorry.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:44 PM
    Michelle_Host: We’re back in business!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:44 PM
    Michelle_Host: Ok, next question…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:44 PM
    JudyCrowell: Time is flying!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:44 PM
    cammy: I was reading about your accessory designs, will that be taking place also?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:45 PM
    JudyCrowell: Hi Cammy ~ I have some wonderful ideas for accessories with gemstones down the road.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:45 PM
    JudyCrowell: But, right now, I’m so new, they have to get used to me first! heehee

    Oct 14 2011, 7:45 PM
    JudyCrowell: Then, I’ll hit ’em with both barrels!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:45 PM
    Michelle_Host: lol

    Oct 14 2011, 7:45 PM
    Michelle_Host: Get ready, JTV lol!

    Michelle_Host: And next…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:46 PM
    deevil: Ooh yes, any plans in the near future to show up north?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:46 PM
    Michelle_Host: This is referring to Canada

    Oct 14 2011, 7:46 PM
    JudyCrowell: Oh okay.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:46 PM
    JudyCrowell: No plans as of yet, but as I said, the sky’s the limit.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:46 PM
    JudyCrowell: So, we’ll see where this takes us. I’m certainly open to it!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:47 PM
    JudyCrowell: As I said, I love to travel.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:47 PM
    Michelle_Host: Woohooo!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:47 PM
    JudyCrowell: And, I love new audiences, too!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:47 PM
    Michelle_Host: Next we have…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:47 PM
    shellbell: Judy do you think quality or quantity when it comes to jewelry?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:47 PM
    JudyCrowell: Great question, actually. I do think it’s a balance.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:48 PM
    JudyCrowell: Sometimes I choose “fun.” And other times, I’m looking at quality, design and long-term where not just trendy.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:48 PM
    JudyCrowell: If that all makes sense.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:48 PM
    JudyCrowell: I meant ‘wear.’

    Oct 14 2011, 7:48 PM
    JudyCrowell: Not ‘where.’

    Oct 14 2011, 7:48 PM
    Michelle_Host: lol

    Oct 14 2011, 7:48 PM
    Michelle_Host: Good news…

    Michelle_Host: Next…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:49 PM
    glittergirlz: Judy, I adore you and Paul and I have been married almost 30 years and wondered how you handle all the travel & time apart

    Oct 14 2011, 7:50 PM
    JudyCrowell: Balance. Once again, that’s the answer.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:50 PM
    JudyCrowell: Great question, though, Linda.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:50 PM
    JudyCrowell: We truly are crazy about each other… we talk three or four times a day when we’re not together….

    Oct 14 2011, 7:50 PM
    JudyCrowell: ACTUALLY, even when we’re at home running errands or something we’re calling each other….

    Oct 14 2011, 7:50 PM
    JudyCrowell: Probably sounds silly, right?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:50 PM
    Michelle_Host: No…

    Oct 14 2011, 7:50 PM
    Michelle_Host: It is priceless

    Oct 14 2011, 7:51 PM
    JudyCrowell: But, what we have took a looooooong time to find.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:51 PM
    JudyCrowell: Anybody who knows my history knows that!!!!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:51 PM
    JudyCrowell: smile

    mrs_squeeze: Do you use an e-reader for the books? Kindle? iPad? on your phone? Or do you like to physically touch the pages?

    Oct 14 2011, 7:51 PM
    JudyCrowell: Hi again Michele

    Oct 14 2011, 7:52 PM
    JudyCrowell: I use an iPad, and Paul uses a Nook.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:52 PM
    JudyCrowell: But, I still like to touch pages when I’m devouring a book.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:52 PM
    JudyCrowell: Paul gave me the iPad for our 8th anniversary last month.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:52 PM
    JudyCrowell: He thought it would be easier to travel with than my computer to Knoxville.

    Oct 14 2011, 7:53 PM
    Michelle_Host: Hey, my BF gifted me one!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:53 PM
    Michelle_Host: and it’s my most used gift EVER!

    Oct 14 2011, 7:53 PM
