  1. Hi Amy! Enter me. I remember you talking about that CD and it sounds cool. :) I listened to the show today while in the car… to the doctor… then to the pharmacy… and while waiting on an Rx. :) I then stopped in at the office supply store, picked up erasers, an exacto knife, and wood wittling tools… ready to make some eraser stamps!

  2. I LOVED the recorded conversation between you and Matthew. Maybe it could become a regular feature? His sweet spirit and the rapport between you is so evident and adorable! Also, I have vacationed at Cannon Beach every summer of my 30 years, and the tradition predates me, as I have a photo of my grandmother as a toddler on the beach there. It’s fun to hear your stories of a place that’s very special to my family, too. Thanks, Amy!

  3. Please enter me, also. :) And your show changed my life, too, and I’m sure a LOT of other lives!
    Also, are you doing anything with Project Spectrum? I found it online last week and thought it would work for any craft or art, like my quilting and painting.

  4. Hi Amy,
    I have been listening for about two months and really appreciate your observations on the world and art.
    I consider myself more of a crafter than an artist, but you are inspriring me to expand my horizons.
    Thanks for sharing so much with us.

  5. Hi Amy,
    Please enter me! By the way I really love the Sparrow song. I listened to it a few times the last time you played it. Seems to be right where I’m at in my life.
    Thanks for all your hard work!

  6. Hey Amy, that conversation at the end was precious! I had this feeling listening to your son, just wondering where he’ll be in 20 or 30 years and how having such a creative mom will shape your boys lives? You inspire me to do things with my girls that I might not think to do. And other moms think I do a lot, and I think, oh, you should meet Amy!
