Ep.101 Let Me Send You A Multicoloured Masterpiece (Mcollonough - Painting Envelopes)

(McCollonough - Painting Envelopes)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have McCollonough as my guest. She shared with me her interest in painting envelopes as her hobby.
 
We live in a time where you for sure get more emails than envelopes, so when ever you get an envelope in the mail you might get a little more excited (except when its bills, that's no fun by mail or email).  To make the experience even better Mccollonough decided to take it one step further to add her personal touch of painting the envelopes. There's something about getting a colourful envelope in the mail that makes you instantly feel more connected to it and pumped to open it. Throughout this episode you will get to learn why Mccollonough enjoys sending them to people from all walks of life.

Ep.100 Let All The Words Flow (Amber - Novelist)

(Amber - Novelist)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Amber as my guest. She shared with me her interest in being a novelist as her hobby.
 
Amber has always been a big fan for books and creating stories. For most people who grew up before the year 2000, most of the stories were written on on the ultimate skin cutter (paper). Amber still owns her first binder with many stories written on paper. However, as the years went by and technology developed, Amber preferred using a computer since its much easier to change something without tearing the paper while erasing. Currently Amber is in film school to become a screen writer and thanks to her hobby of writing novels, it allowed her to find new and creative ways to bring her stories to life.

Ep.96 A Cupcake A Day Keeps No One Away (Brittany -Baking)

(Brittany - Baking)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Brittany as my guest. She shared with me her interest in baking as her hobby.
 
Food is essential for living and sometimes well all need a little something sweetness in our lives to give that little extra boost. Brittany is one of those amazing people that loves baking and trying new recipes and create some sweet awesomeness. While we were talking she mentioned that she's not a big fan of cupcakes which makes the title of this episode ironic. So I guess a cupcake a day will keep Brittany away. But you know what won't keep her away? Cookies!

Ep.92 Chirp, Quack, Twite, Hoot (Erik - Birding)

(Erik - Birding)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Erik as my guest. He shared with me his interest in birding as his hobby.
 
A study made by the American Museum of Natural History indicates that there are around 18,000 different species of birds around the would and they all have interesting characteristics that make them unique. Some are Apex predators, some have unique mating displays, some live in a place where no other creatures live. People like Erik who observe and study birds are considered birders which means they enjoy not only looking at birds in their natural habitats but also learn more bout their habits and way of life.
