live inspired: designer & youtuber, missy whidden

This week, I'm talking to the super talented, Missy Whidden. Missy, well known for her awesome YouTube videos, designs for several major manufacturers and it's easy to see why her work is in high demand. Her mixed media style is fun, intricate and yet Missy makes it seem very easy to replicate!



Missy and I recorded this interview around 11 pm her time and we talked until 12:30 am! It was so fun to talk to her and she had so many great things to say, I just kept the conversation going. We have a long list of mutual friends but until our conversation, had never connected one on one and I must say....I'm so glad I got the chance to talk to her for so long and now have the joy of calling her a friend. What a talented human being and an inspiration for all of us. It's clear to see why she was often requested as a guest for this show.

Check out Missy's work here on her blog and at her Instagram feed!

Here's one of the layouts we discussed at the end of the show. This is a great go-to design, no matter your style! Break out your washi and put it in an L shape!



If you're enjoying the Live Inspired podcast, please let me know in the comments below. I'd also love to know who you would like to hear me talk to on this show. I'm sure you've noticed, I recently took the focus of the show off the business side and a bit more on the inspiration side and I plan to keep it that way. Mostly it just gives me an excuse to talk to all my favorite people. I find that YouTubers are the best people to interview because they are used to talking in a steady stream so tell me your favorite YouTubers and teachers! I'd love to hear who is inspiring YOU!
