EP. 97 // Modern Day Memory Keeping w/ KELLY PURKEY

Today on the podcast we have designer, documenter and Kelly Purkey Shop owner Kelly Purkey! Aside from being a talented graphic artist, content creator, and world traveler, Kelly is also Amanda & Kristin’s matchmaker since they first met at one of Kelly’s Workshops back in 2012. We’re thrilled to have her on to talk about her latest products!

SUMMARY //

Kelly Purkey starts off by talking about her backstory a bit, strolling down memory lane referencing the workshop she hosted where A & K met, and why she decides to pay the women on her design team.

The girls chat about Kelly’s new products for December and how she always strives to create something new every year and create products for those documenters that don’t have photo-heavy holidays.

EP. 96 // Get Messy w/ CAYLEE GREY

Today on the podcast we have self-proclaimed Fairy Art Mother Caylee Grey, a South African artist living in Germany, creator of Get Messy, and your pro excuse-squashing ninja. Her life mission is to empower amazing, real-life humans get into a regular, creative practice.

EP 96 CAYLEE GREY blog post - Crafty Ass Female.jpg

SUMMARY //

Caylee Grey starts off by explaining where her title ‘Fairy Art Mother’ came from, and tells A + K how Get Messy kind of “fell from the heavens” into her life and how she turned it into a business.

In a world that focuses so much energy beautifully curated images and moments, Caylee makes ‘MESS’ a word to strive for and celebrate! Getting messy, says Caylee, is dancing naked in perfectionism’s face!

The girls chat a bit about depression and Caylee shares the small steps she took to get out of it. Amanda talks about how breathing is sometimes all you have for the day, and that blends into a conversation about what a NonZero Day is.

EP. 95 // REFLECTION - Welcome to Season 5!

WE WOULD SAY “We’re back!” BUT THIS SEASON’S CASE, WE NEVER LEFT! Picking up right where Season 4 left off, SEASON 5 is HERE and the theme for this season of Crafty Ass Female is REFLECTION - because you don’t release almost 100 episodes (WOW!) of a hit podcast, have THEE best conversations with some of THEE best people, and NOT have anything to reflect on along the way!

EP 95 SEAS 5 REFLECTION blog post - Crafty Ass Female.jpg

SUMMARY //

In this episode, A + K start off by talking about how having a forward momentum for the podcast happens when they choose a theme for each season, and Season 5’s theme is REFLECTION!

Kristin talks about how she reflects through what she watches on TV, her currently lists, and her #Thursday3 practice. Amanda brings up the need to check out and not have to intentionally reflect, but how she has this background hum of reflection always going on even still. What has been YOUR experience?
