I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  I hope that you enjoy listening to these podcasts.  I know that Mom and I love chatting about artful living with each other and our variety of guests!  As the title indicates, today’s podcast is all about filming season 5 of Scrapbook Soup.  We recorded the podcast in two halves: one half before I left for filming and one half when I get back.  Here are some photos from the shoot…

There is, of course, the glam part of the shoot: makeup and wardrobe!

On the podcast we discuss getting ready to shoot — all the prep work — and then the actual shoot itself. I’ve tried to adds names to all the faces so that when you’re listening to the podcast you’ll know who we’re talking about! Thanks for stopping by!

011: A Conversation with May Flaum

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!

Today’s guest is May Flaum.

Headshot
When it comes to crafting May Flaum has one rule: it’s gotta make her happy. She’s not afraid to get super grungy or work with bright colors, dabble in lace and doilies then make something more splattered and wild. If she’s not in her studio (aka ‘the bat cave’) then she’s probably out running around having fun with her family or cooking up a storm.  May has been working in the scrapbooking industry for a decade and currently blogs [www.mayflaum.com] her crafty adventures, teaches on-line classes, and works with amazing companies sharing her projects and ideas. If she has one piece of advice to share, it’s always to be true to your creative heart.

You can find May’s most recent e-book, “Fashionably Fast” here.

On today’s podcast we discuss May’s long and very interesting career in the scrapbook industry.  The theme of being true to yourself — both creatively and in your career path — is strong throughout this episode.  I found it to be a very inspiring conversation and I hope you will too! (And here is the link to May’s creative journey, as promised on the podcast.)
