EP. 43 // Crafting a Life You Love w/ Amy Tangerine

Today we are thrilled to share our interview with the lovely and talented Amy Tan of the Amy Tangerine brand! Amy is a creative director, collaborator, paper & picture lover, traveler, homebody, planner, scrapbooker, and author of the book Craft a Life You Love. She’s been a crafty inspiration of both Kristin & Amanda’s for a number of years, and getting to interview her on the podcast was a dream come true!

EP. 43 AMY TAN // Crafty Ass Female

SUMMARY //

Amy Tangerine walks us through the creation of her book Craft a Life You Love, doing life ‘out of order’, and having a positive outlook.

Amy & the girls also play an impromptu game of ‘my therapist said’ sharing some key takeaways from therapy including letting go of negative thoughts and limiting beliefs.

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE EP //

Amy on all those ideas you have in your head:

"All those ideas that you have in your head: it doesn’t matter how many you have, it’s how many you make happen. And that shouldn’t overwhelm you, it should inspire you because if you really do have a bunch of ideas, you putting one of them to work - now, today, taking action - is going to fuel everything that comes afterwards.”

Amy evolved definition of success :

“…Success to me has just always kind of been ‘GO GO GO’ and what I realized is, you know, true success is when you can do what you want, and if that means take a pause and say ‘hey, you know what? I’m just not feeling that good today’ or ‘I’m not feeling like doing that today, I need to take a wellness day and just go and sit at the park, or just get my paints out and do something just for me’…and I think that’s okay…I think that’s my definition of success lately…”
