Episode 087: How One Handmaker Used Her Creativity to Heal and Reconnect


I work with amazing creative people every single day – yay for me! – and I’m so incredibly lucky to know Audrey from Hey Be Fab. Audrey’s tag line is so wonderfully crafted: Embrace your Inner Spunk. And I think Audrey has done, and continues to do, an excellent job helping her followers and students do just that.

She is a true free spirit, creative powerhouse. When she agreed to be on the show, I yelped with delight. Literally, if memory serves me correctly.

Audrey is a textile artist who believes that you can find freedom from the mundane with one stitch at a time. She hosts art workshops (or parties) where (mostly) women come together to build friendships and connect with each as they create art.

I asked Audrey if she would be willing to share more with us about how she got to where she is in her creative career. She is running such a fun, diverse and dynamic handmade business that includes a subscription box, workshops and finished pieces.

The story Audrey told me during out chat was so real and raw and I know many of you will relate to things she shared. I can’t wait for you to hear this one.

I spoke with Audrey about the emotional moments that lead her back to creativity and ultimately to starting her business, how she’s making it all work – and WHY – with a full time job, kids, a dog, and husband. I also asked her what’s next for her.

This is all around an instant classic episode. Please be sure to follow Audrey on Instagram where she is constantly sharing fun, funny and insightful stories and content. You’re going to love following her. And be sure to check out all things Hey Be Fab on her site heybefab.com.
