New podcasts I’m watching and loving right now

  • Purple Photokitty’s Artwork Kelly is podcasting from Scotland.  And y’all should know I really want to move there and live with the family.  So I was instantly drawn to her show.  But she’s also charming and I’m totally enjoying her podcast!
  • Britt Knits Brittany is from Illinois and is a newer podcaster.  She is going to be starting an etsy shop with her hand dyed yarns.  I’m really looking forward to watching her business grow!
