Emily Katz of Modern Macramé is an artist (in many forms!) based in Portland, OR.
This conversation is woven with so many nuggets of wisdom from Emily. She tells us about her beautiful creative story, and I really loved how she calls out that even though on the outside it might look like everything “just happened” and fell into her lap, that while yes there was a kismet magic to her story, that it’s all about what you do with it. And she really has done so much.
She also shares some of her coping mechanisms for when she’s going through a rough day including her go-to activity to lift her spirits. She speaks about those moments that happen to all of us - as she puts it “even if you have everything that you imagine and dreamt up, you can still feel terrible” - and about learning to forgive yourself when you do feel that way, remembering that we all do sometimes.
We cover a lot of ground in the episode! I think Emily is so inspiring and lovely, and I know you are going to really enjoy hearing her story.
