Did you miss the FaveCrafts Radio show yesterday? It was such fun! We got some hints and tips from professional crafters as well as some inside industry scoops! We also gave away some awesome prizes to participating listeners so be sure to listen live next month.
The show started off with a bang by giving our brand new host Amy Anderson the moniker of “Gluing Guru” and announced the giveaway prizes from our show sponsor Plaid. Two lucky winners got a pack of Amy’s favorite, Mod Podge, and a set of hot glue gun helpers!
Our first guest, Anna Hrachovec from Mochimochi Land told us all about how inspired she was by studying abroad in Japan to create the little knit creatures that live on her blog. She told us that even after all the practice she’s had making these adorable creatures she still sketches out her ideas before getting started! What a great tip for some of my never-finished crafts! After talking about her new addiction to GIF images, she gave us some of her tips for hobbyists who want branch out and try to become professional crafters. If you missed her tips, you can hear them here!
Our next guests were Cathie and Steve! We found out that they are definitely not married, how they met and started their crafting empire, and that they love Mod Podge (who doesn’t?) and squeal when they see a Dollar Tree! Cathie shed some knowledge on why Dollar Store crafts are so popular – they are super cheap so if they don’t go as planned it’s not as big of a deal. Also, they leaked some super secret insider news about a TV show! Want to know what it was? Well you’ll have to listen to find out!
We wrapped up the show with Pinterest lover Brittany aka Pretty Handy Girl. She gave us some tips on having the best Pinterest experience you possibly can like following lots of people! This means that you’ll always have new and interesting things to look at when you log in. We know that Pinterest can be addictive so we also asked how to reduce time on Pinterest. Want to know what her tips were? Listen in the archives!
Oh yea, want to know who’s rule of thumb for minimizing time on Pinterest this is? Listen in to find out! I’ll give you a hint, it wasn’t Brittany!
