EP. 72 // Growth with Plants & Gardening

Happy Earth Day, lovelies! Amanda + Kristin couldn’t have possibly moved through this season’s theme of GROWTH with a whole episode dedicated to plants and greenery and herbs and fresh, backyards grown produce and all the metaphors for life that can be extracted from your garden.

EP. 72 // Growth with Plants and Gardening - Crafty Ass Female

SUMMARY //

In this episode, A + K talk about how they both ‘got into’ plants and how you can’t get more ‘off the phone’ than planting and being connected to your garden.

The girls discuss going through seasons and season of learning curves, dormant periods, and dispelling the myth of ‘you need to know what you’re doing’.

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE EP //

Kristin on gardening:

“You can screw up so much and still be so successful!”

Kristin on switching ‘GROWTH’ with ‘DEVELOPMENT’:

“Sometimes when we get stuck with like, ‘Why am I not growing? What is wrong with my growth here?’ I want us to switch to the word DEVELOPMENT, and say like, ‘Why am I not developing?’ and see if that changes anything for you.”

WE WOULD LOVE IT IF YOU LEFT US A WRITTEN REVIEW ON ITUNES HERE

EP. 68 // GROWTH - Welcome to Season 4!

WE WOULD SAY “We’re back!” BUT IN THIS SEASON’S CASE, WE NEVER LEFT! Haa haa! But anyway…CHEERS! We’re TENURE AS A PODCAST! Season 4, let’s do this! The theme for this season of Crafty Ass Female is GROWTH - because you don’t release almost 70 episodes of a hit podcast, have THEEE best conversations with some of THEEE best people, and NOT pick up a few things along the way!

SUMMARY //

In this episode, A + K talk about about where they are at with their personal growth. Kristin has been navigating the hills & valleys of her physical health, being a person who is in chronic pain, and shares her thoughts about telling that party of her story.

Amanda attributes her growth thus far to a combination of the intentions she set at the start of Season 3 and what she decided on for her one little word this year. She talks to Kristin about what she’s doing to lay down a SOLID FOUNDATION at this point in her life and deal with all the background ‘stuff’ she’s been struggling with for years.

HOW YOU CAN GROW //

Towards the end of the episode, Kristin gives YOU listeners a way to grow by offering the opportunity to apply for the OPEN CALL w/ EMPOWER ARTS Magazine !!! // E-mail submissions to hello@empowerartmag.com.

THE PODCAST IS GROWING //
