Multi-craftual to boot

Louise is the thoughtful friend, the one who helps put things in perspective, sees humor in even the toughest of moments and is multi-craftual to boot! Spending time listening to her podcast leaves me feeling engaged with my fellow crafters and renewed for the day. Louise’s reflective chats are especially good — not preachy, but worth some personal, inner examination. I love to listen while I’m walking with Fritz, my dog, or digging around in the garden.

Lovely

I always enjoy Louise’s podcast. Love her voice, love the glimpses of her family & love to hear about this part of Scotland.

An absolute favorite

Occasionally, I find myself daydreaming about the north of Scotland and sitting down with a bottle for a wee dram with Louise. I just really enjoy hearing about life and craft in her corner of the world. And the occasional puffin mention. Have a listen - I think you'll find her as charming and as funny as I do.
