I get by with a little help from my friends!

Sometimes you admire someone and wonder how the heck they are doing something or what they use to do it.  I know I sure do!  So, I figured I'd make a list of resources or personal favorites that I have found helpful in life, business, and blogging.  Hopefully these things can help you too!  If you decide to use any of these things, let me know what you think! 



I love Framebridge to get my pictures and art framed. If you've never heard of Framebridge before, it's an online service that allows you to select the size of your art and style of frame and mat. Once you've made your selections, Framebridge will send you a box to ship or art in for them to frame. You can also upload digital art and pictures, such as Instagram photos, and they will print the art for you and frame it to your specifications. There are a variety of frames to choose from to fit any design aesthetic and style.

The Lively Show

Oh my goodness, do I love me some Lively Show!  I started listening to Jess in 2015, right around the time I launched Joy Street Maps on Etsy. She was about a year and a half into pod-casting, and I went back to the very beginning to listen to every single episode. The content has transformed over the years, from business to travel and everything in between, but the the constant thread through all of the episodes is following your intuition. I have recommended the Lively Show to multiple people and I highly recommend you check it out if you haven't already!

Young House Love Has A Podcast

John and Sherry crack me up.  I often listen to YHLHAP while I'm working on my maps and I often have to stop working because I'm cracking up laughing. Young House Love started as a home improvement blog and they've taken over the interweb. They launched their podcast in the summer of  2016 and have been going strong since. It's a light-hearted podcast, great for DIYer's looking for a little pick-me-up!



If you are a fan of Freakinomics, you might enjoy Invisibilia.  Lulu Miller, Hanna Rosin, and Alix Spiegel investigate all things invisible to the naked eye, but control human behavior, such as beliefs, assumptions, and emotions. Each episode tells two or three stories around a certain topic that will have you questioning your own beliefs and assumptions at the end. I always learn something interesting from listing to these podcasts and often refer back to episodes in my day-to-day conversations with people.
