I was interviewed by HandmadeU!

I'm very excited to share a little interview I had with the very sweet Rachel McGough, owner and operator of HandmadeU.  Click the link to see the wonderful art retreats she offers.  I hope to attend her retreat myself some day.  You can also see lots of interviews with lots of talented artists.

I have to tell you another wonderful serendipitous thing that happened first.

As you know I am collaborating with Jeanne Oliver for my new online class, Eclectic Beaded Crochet Jewelry, relentlessly marketing and sharing it, with giveaways and posts on social media etc.  Well about 2 weeks ago, before I went to bed, I thought "I need to be interviewed by a popular blog" so I could spread the news about the class but I had no idea who to contact or how to go about it without seeming weird.   Without giving it another thought, I went to bed and wouldn't you know it, first thing in the morning I woke up, checked my emails and FB page to see that Rachel had messaged me on facebook, asking if she could interview me for an online monthly series she is conducting,  focusing on "putting yourself out there as an artist".  Now, I have never talked to Rachel nor do I know her.  I just thought this is amazing and thanked spirit.  Sometimes you're in the flow and magic happens!

Any way, I'd love to hear what you thought of the interview and how you put yourself out there!  Just click this link to see the video;
