Are you into Podcasts yet? They are like blogs, except you can hear the person actually speak. Or like a little radio show. Or like NPR in even more of a grassroots sense.
If you are into crafty stuff and are bored with your iPod music library, check out the CraftyPod podcast. It’s free to subscribe! Cheers to SisterDG for CraftyPod. Five sequin rating from Crafty Chica! Check out the web site here.
It’s funny, lately I’ve been thinking about my life and what changes I want to make. I’m feeling kind of slumpy and stuck. So last night, Patrick and I were watching the cake decorating challenge on the Food Network and I got all amped up about it.
“I want to go into cake decorating! That’s what I want to do with my life!” I proclaimed. He rolled his eyes. Images of fondant skulls popped in my head and my imagination took over.
Tonight it’s a different story. I’m soaking up these cool podcasts and Patrick walks in to check on me.
“Let me guess”, he says. “You are researching cake decorating…”.
“No!” I reply. “Podcasts! I want to do a podcast called Diary of a Crafty Chica!”
Patrick got jumpy too. He has all the equipment to record one (fringe benefits of being a musician) and said he’ll help me get my podcast off the ground.
“Why are you so excited about this too?” I ask.
He kissed me on the forehead and spun around to leave the room. As he walked away he said: “Because it sure beats cake decorating!”
Anyway. Check out CraftyPod. Here is how to get it:
– Go to iTunes.com
– Click on “PodCasts”
– in the search field in the upper right hand corner of your screen, type in “CraftyPod”.
OK, I can’t list just CraftyPod. Here are a couple other craft-related podcasts:
* Redefining Crafts (http://www.redefiningcraft.com)
* SCRAPcast (http://www.scrapcast.com)
peace, respect & glitter.
