Fun and insightful!
I found this podcast to be both fun and insightful. I would say that you don't even have to be a crafter to enjoy it, just a creative person. They tackled such a big topic on the very first episode, can't wait to hear what's in store for the future of craft hangout!
Great first episode. There was a great point made on e1 that said "you should try to gain inspiration from you day job for your personal work". Taking that perspecitve would make your life much better! The best thing you can do is find value in what you do! :-)
I love this podcast, it definetly gets your creative juices going :)
I will be definetly listening to all episodes!
