Need to know
When Ads confused me, I found just the right show and thoroughly valued the experience. Thanks artist for contributing.
So much good information
So little sound design. We are all crafty and aficionados of crafty things but I’m a little disappointed at the lack of thought put into the sounds and over-all format of this podcast.
The show is evolving nicely!
When this podcast first started I probably would’ve given it a 4.2 rating but it’s a evolved to a 5.0 show!I really love listening to the success stories and struggles and other Etsy sellers and the trends reports!
