Interviews

I can’t remember how I first stumbled on to Jamie Ridler’s podcast but when I did I was hooked!

Jamie interviews artists and asks questions that sparked so many new ideas. At the end of her podcast, Jamie says a line: …and maybe one day, I will be talking to you!” When I heard that line over and over again, I believed it. (totally the power of manifesting, right?)

Fast forward a couple of months and I was sent to Toronto for a work trip. Jamie lives in Toronto! So I emailed her, telling her my story and asked if she would like to meet me for coffee. She said YES!

She was amazing, so nice and happy. I cherish that memory. At the end of our meeting, she asked if I would like to be on her show! Of course, I did. I had told her the story of knowing, I to would one day be on her show, just like her sign-off line. If you are looking for a great podcast Jamie talks to creative, independent spirits in order to bring you inspiration, stories and strategies for bringing creativity to life, head over to JamieRidler.com.

Meeting the Old Bird

I truly can’t wait to meet his lady in person. Linda from It’s Got to be Handmade YouTube channel is a treasure! She is so full of life and usually is sporting a stroke of purple hair, which I love. She calls herself, The Old Bird. Her dreams are to buy an RV and take her show on the road, meeting new artists and interviewing them. I told her she NEEDS to come to Lincoln and see me.

In the meantime, she interviewed me about my business the Pincurl Girls. I create many African American girls and Linda fell in love with them. I saw recently, she even lined the drawers of her sewing desk with the girls from an old Pincurl Girl calendar. What a great idea. Check out Linda’s YouTube channel here.
