This is the one podcast I listen to with every new episode then over and over!!! I have learned so much n love to follow n support all the fun people you interview and supper their IG and shops!! Thanks for all you do!!
Lovely chats, stationery knowledge, community
This is my go-to podcast, I even replay episodes! I love the energy of the host and their guest. Their knowledge about my favorite topic stationery and their friendship keeps bringing me back. Thank you!
I found my people! Lol
I’ve been such a fan of this podcast- it’s so relatable and I feel like I’ve found my people; the topics are fun and educational, as are the struggles with journaling, making time, adjusting to busy and changing schedules, etc.
There IS a huge enabling component BUT I also love that April, Phyllis and Kelly talk about shopping your stash, how to find ways to know what you have so you’re using more of it, and how they share stationary among their friends group.
I also love the broad range of the guests we’ve seen so far - including (but not limited to) women in male-dominated careers, men who don’t fit cultural norms I’ve been used to seeing (as a woman who grew up in the US), and wonderfully creative individuals who have been able to make friends all over the globe. I learn something new all the time and look forward to hearing this podcast every week!
