I love getting to chat with creatives I follow on instagram. I don't think I will ever tire of saying that. It is just so much fun to learn about the creative process of others and also how they fit being a creative into their daily lives. I was so honored to have Lesley on the podcast.

It is such a privilege to talk to the creatives in this industry. I find that the more people I talk to the more I am inspired to see the process of being creative in new ways. I have these rules in my head for being creative and I am not sure why they are there and where they came from. I think as adults we really put rules too high on the priority list, especially as creatives. My guest today is Micah from Unhurried Steps and let me tell you this lady makes me think about being creative in a different way. She openly writes about her creative projects and processes on her blog and posts on instagram in such an insightful way. Her writing always makes me think about the things I can do to make this gift of mine serve me well. I am so excited to share this chat with you today because I hope you are inspired and have some awesome takeaways from it.

Our Song, Your Reflection is a collaboration between Andrea and award-winning singer-songwriter Meaghan Smith. In tandem, Andrea has created a quilt design and Meaghan has created a song that speaks about the importance of community and the human connections that we make. The song does not speak of quilting specifically but there are references and it reflects the quilt design. The project is structured as an IndieGoGo campaign so that people can preorder the pattern and/or fabric kit, get limited-edition project swag, and other fun perks. But most importantly, the campaign gives people the opportunity to submit a photo of one of their quilts or of their quilting community to be included in the final music video.

She really opens up about her creative life and how turning her passion into a business is both rewarding and challenging. Stacie also talks about her licensing deal with Moda Fabrics and the different fabric lines she has been working on. I thought it was so interesting to hear that what she sends in to clients is often only a stepping stone for a product because it goes through so much editing to get to the final product. I loved this chat and I know we could have chatted forever. Stacie is such a sweet and honest person to share her business story with me. This is a much listen for sure.

 MS episode 160: Be Creative with Workbox magazine’s editor Mary Bennellick | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: Unknown

This episode is so special for me because I am chatting with Be Creative with Workbox magazine's editor, Mary Bennellick. Mary contacted me for a feature she was working on for the magazine about podcasts. We emailed back and forth and the article was published in the magazine. Mary mentioned she would like to do a write up about me in an upcoming issue of the magazine and I was like a girl that just got asked to prom. There was a little happy dance I may have done in my sewing room and thank goodness I am the only one who saw my dancing skills. I came up with the idea to have her on the podcast for a chat to get to know her a little better and have it air when the article was published. It has been such a fun couple of months of communication with Mary and her managing editor, Amber. These ladies are doing a phenomenal job with Be Creative but learning more about how they came to be the editors of the magazine was so cool. The podcast today really helps you get to know more about the magazine and what these ladies are looking forward to in the future. Oh and we even let you in on the secrets to getting your own work published in the magazine. Take a listen and make sure to check the show notes for all of the links we chat about.
