I’ve been following Julie on Instagram for a couple of years, after hearing her speak on the podcast Elise Gets Crafty, and was very curious when I heard she was launching a podcast of her own. Through her calm, friendly voice, she shares her journey and how you can apply it to your art/craft/making process. The first four episodes have been very enjoyable, and I’m eager to hear more about what she has to share!
I follow Julie on Instagram so I was eagerly awaiting the launch of her podcast! It’s terrific! I like that it’s not too long and it’s really practical talk about her art and process. I am looking forward to following this one and seeing how it develops!
Make Share Grow is a wonderful podcast. It is encouraging and full of inspiration and tips!
