Eps. 25 - Don't feel pressure to have babies!!! (Pep Talk)

”All of my friends are having babies right now, and I feel like I’m supposed to have one now.”

While visiting one of my favorite coffee shops recently, someone playing with Ollie said to me…

”All of my friends are having babies right now, and I feel like I’m supposed to have one now.”

I pretty much said exactly this podcast to her to encourage her NOT to feel pressured!! Just in case there somewhere out there who also feels pressured, either by her friends, her age, her family, or just because she’s married, I thought it would be the perfect first minisode pep talk. <3

Eps. 18 - Marloes De Vries - Getting through hard times, becoming an illustrator + LOTS of random giggly banter

This podcast episode is sponsored by Mayonnaise.

I’ve been following along Marloes De Vries’s journey for quite a few years now and have always admired her bold, brave way to share hard things using comics. She’s open and funny and I just adored interviewing her! Her business journey is fascinating, as is the job she held before she was an illustrator!

We talk about everything from going through hardships like depression, having anxiety and being an introvert to talking to animals, buying legos & our favorite and least favorite condiments.

It’s an incredibly interesting conversation and I hope you love listening to it as much as we loved recording it!

Eps. 10 - Vanessa Newton talks about how Dyslexia (among other things) did NOT hold her down in pursuit of inspiring children around the world.

Vanessa Newton is a BEACON OF LIGHT. She's a magical unicorn, an incredible storyteller, and quite honestly, she has the most infectious laugh ever!

She's illustrated of over 20 picture books, a handful of those she has authored as well. Her many styles of illustration are not only joyful, but captivating. 

When I first found out about Vanessa's work, I was babysitting a cute little munchkin.  When it was bedtime, I read her the most beautiful book, One Love. The collaged illustrations of this book were so gorgeous, I snuck the book out of the room once I put her to bed to look at all the pictures again.  It's an honor to now call the illustrator of this book, my friend.
