    Episode 175: Dear Handmade Life Part Two w/ Nicole Stevenson

    Episode 175: Dear Handmade Life Part Two w/ Nicole Stevenson

    More about Nicole Stevenson:


    Nicole Stevenson is a multi-passionate creative, middle-aged first-time mama, impostor syndrome warrior, cake and Korean BBQ connoisseur, confessional journaler, second-hand shop scavenger, deep dive conversationalist and the CEO and creative director at Dear Handmade Life.


    She can't recall a time in her life when she wasn't making something.


    At 24, she turned my passion into my profession when she started selling Random Nicole, her handcrafted clothing line at flea markets and backyard craft fairs, which she grew into a thriving retail and wholesale six-figure business that was carried at over 250 shops around the world.


    Nicole's desire to help other creatives pursue their dream business and discover the joy of making led her away from her own handmade business and into teaching, consulting, running her own workshop studio and eventually co-founding Dear Handmade Life in 2007. Now, she connects, educates and shortens the learning curve for other creatives by sharing what she's learned through the Dear Handmade Life events, blog and podcast. She has a BA and an MA in English from San Francisco State University and a dual “PhD” in crafting to keep your sanity and badass business skills from the School of Life.


    When she takes off her Dear Handmade Life “boss hat”, you’ll find her squeezing in time to write or draw, trying her damndest to make her baby laugh or hold still long enough for her to change his diaper, devouring one of the dozens of self-help books on her nightstand, trying to find something interesting to take a photo of on her morning walk in her mundane suburban neighborhood, watching Below Deck and eating the best sausage and orecchiette courtesy of her husband or dreaming of living a stone’s throw from the beach.

    Episode 173: Dream, Create, Sell with Studio Sisters

    Episode 173: Dream, Create, Sell with Studio Sisters

    Taylor and Katie Smith are sisters who have a top 1% Etsy shop where they sell vinyl and planner stickers. Katie designs the stickers and all the stickers are printed on site.


    The Smith sisters are two totally different humans (and that's one of the reasons Kristin was so excited to talk to them — the other that she's been friends with Katie for almost a decade) and that's one of the reasons that lead to their incredible success.


    They talk about the different things that they were both able to bring to this new business venture and how they were able to do over $100,000 in sales on Etsy last year, selling just stickers alone.


    Taylor and Katie are now creating a brand new course helping other people achieve creative business success in the same way they have with their new course: Dream, Create, Sell.


    Throughout the episode we talk about why they decided to create a course (they want to help other creatives and artists who are selling their work get more traction with their businesses). We also talk about who this course is for, what mistakes they see people making, and what students are going to get out of Dream, Create, Sell.


    This is a great conversation for anyone interested in diving deeper with their art and their artistic business.

Refreshing look at how crafty women are today

Amanda and Kristin are awesome to listen to with their unique and witty way they navigate crafting and life in general. Great array of guests and very interesting conversations all about how crafting has affected them and how they work with it in their everyday lives.

Diverse & Genuine

LOVE A&K. This is one of my favourite crafty podcasts. The ladies are genuine - what you hear is what you get with both of them.
The list of guests has been diverse and they cover some great topics.
