Podcast Episode 105: Parenting and Creative Business with Erika Lee Sears

Parenting and Creative Business with Erika Lee Sears Dear Handmade Life podcast

This week on the Dear Handmade Life podcast I’m chatting about parenting and creative business with self-taught oil painter Erika Lee Sears. Erika and I chat about trying to be a good parent instead of a perfect one, what her schedule looks like (aka how she squeezes everything in), her daily art practice, the benefits of making time to fill yourself up and more.
