If someone had asked me a year ago if I thought I would ever be interviewed on a Podcast, I would have laughed! No way... Who would be interested? And besides, I really don't have the voice for a microphone... My husband says there are times when surely only a dog can hear me... and it's not unusual for me to answer the phone, only to be asked, 'Is Mummy or Daddy there?'
That said, thanks to my day job, I have finally managed to master the art of sounding more 'adult' like on the phone and less like a ten year old child, which is just as well, because as you might remember, I was invited to be a guest on Youngman Browns Podcast, 'Your Creative Push' only recently (You can listen to that interview here).
I was blown away to be asked, so as you can imagine, I was bowled over to be invited so soon afterwards by creative genius, Tara Roskell to be a guest on her own, brand new Podcast, 'The Idea Medic!'
Most of Tara's questions were quite different to the ones I was asked before, so if you'd like to listen, you can click on this link.
...It was so much fun. It was like I'd known Tara for years (though maybe it helped that I wasn't quite so petrified this time!)
Anyway, out of the experience came the bonkers plan to create a joint episode on how to come up with creative ideas... How fun is that?? I'll let you know how that one goes!
Meanwhile I'm still busy working a way at those coke bottles. Progress shots coming soon, I promise!
Q. What are you working on right now? (Share in the comments below!)
Week in a nutshell...
Low point: Linking my blog comments system to Facebook, only to find that as a result I lost every single comment on all of my previous posts! Very sad :0( Funny moment: When a Horse-Fly flew down my shirt in the studio and in my panic while trying to get it out, my boobs made an appearance... which is really only funny because I was making a time-lapse video when it happened! Haha! (I don't think I'll be showing that bit!) Watching: 'The Loch' (V. good) Feeling: Motivated

So I promised I would share the link to my Podcast interview once it went live... I was worried to be honest, in case I had somehow made a complete twit of myself! But Youngman Brown is so lovely to talk to and he put me at ease very quickly, so I think I did okay. Phew!
So, if you'd like to listen (and make sense of my post title), click on this link or on the image below. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Meanwhile, I highly recommend subscribing to the Podcast, particularly if you are prone to confidence melt-downs, poor time management, creative blocks and procrastination!
It was a nice thing to happen in what has otherwise been a 'pants' week. For the first time in my life I had the actual flu... and I don't mean just a heavy cold, I mean full on, 'I'm dying' kind of flu.
I took my first day off sick from work in about four years, although I should really have been off for at least three more because I am still feeling pretty awful. So forgive me if this blog post isn't quite up to my usual standard!
I can't wait until I am fully on the mend so I can get back to my paints. Until then, I am at least back at my sketchbook!
Q. So, where do you find creative inspiration when you need a push?
Week in a nutshell...
Highlight: Realising I did not make a twit of myself in my interview as I had feared! Low point: Flu. Ugh! Ghastly! Discovered: A quirky blog, 'The Idea Medic' Thinking about: What to paint next!
