HEART & HANDS of a MAKER podcast

Sessions filled with great ideas, inspirational stories, everyday little joys, and life's big dreams. Each week, my guests and I discuss topics such as creating, the maker's life, business challenges and successes!

Cat's creative journey started when she was very young and aspired to be a fashion designer. ⁣
⁣
Currently, Cat’s art revolves around color, whether through acrylic paints or wax sticks. And she’s having a great time combining all the materials and techniques she’s explored over the years, including the use of canvas, metal, assemblage, and art journaling, reflecting a bit of everything in her artist’s toolbox. ⁣
⁣
Cat shares her approach to creativity and emphasizes the importance of making connections and trying new things. ⁣

A little ASMR (for me). Took a break from the projects I’m working on to just sit and listen. Then wanted to capture some of this for when it’s not so lush and beautiful around here. And for when we’re in our normal dry/drier season. And maybe for when it’s winter and I need some color to brighten the day. Then wanted to share in case this sound supports/helps you in some way.

A beautiful start to the morning with a sweet visitor - then back to “work.” 

Getting projects for a book in order and pushing closer to the finish line. 😅 can’t share too much more than this but there is a book in the works and the deadline is looming large right now!

So often Nature is my muse - especially this time of year. 

These were some pics and vids from just the last few days. So much more to be taken as the season evolves. My absolute favorite will be the ocean views and beach scenes. 🌊 

What is blooming near you? Have a favorite bloom or scene you’re looking forward to?

I have a secret to share. I was in the middle of an intense making session then looked at the clock. Oops! Quick change over to a podcast station. 😆 thankfully no one will know. Except I just told you! 

I’m usually better at time management but I got so into things today. Do you lose yourself and time when creating? Have any secrets to share?!
