  1. Hi Amy,
    Instead of cleaning house, I am trying to download your latest podcast. It looks like you have episode 37 downloading again. When I went into iTunes, there were two episode 37s. Just thought you might want to know.
    I love your podcast. Take care.
    Amy’s Update – Ahhh… thanks for letting me know. You should have gotten the right show in iTunes, but it was mislabled (my fault) with the old title. I’ve corrected it. But sorry for any confusion!

  2. Hi Amy! I really appreciated your podcast today. I too have been in a creative slump. It’s nice to hear someone else knows what it’s like. I have to say, you always inspire me.
    My girls LOVE Kiki’s Delivery Service, we rented it through NetFlix, thank you so much for recommending it to us. We are now going to get it for my little one’s 3rd birthday tomorrow.
    Thanks again!

  3. I loved this show, and was glad that you talked about being in a creative slump, as I, too get in sometimes. I particularly love the bookmark drawings and the snippet that you put at the top of the show notes was wonderful! I am excited to get started on my ATC for March! ;)

  4. I have been enjoying listening to your podcasts. My son and I have planned several fun, but complicated, birthdays..several with pirate themes. One had the theme of arts. The kids had to bring in artwork for the birthday gallery: my son’s idea! Still yours sound amazing. Just thought I’d pass on that you might like the picture books of Peter Sis. The detailed art work in his books is intriguing.

  5. I just started listening to your podcast a few weeks ago….LOVE IT. Thanks for all of the great book suggestions…my son and I raided the library yesterday and picked up a few of your suggestions…..crying babies, gotta go. Thanks.
