    Silly me, but I didn’t even know there was a Zibra podcast! I am now subscribed and I listened today while sewing on a quilt. Hearing about the other talented creators makes me want to search through FB Marketplace and find a few treasures to pretty up. I am totally inspired! Thank you!

    I’ve never painted a piece of furniture- I have five pieces waiting for me in my garage. I enjoyed looking at Lauren’s pieces for inspiration. I love that I can go back to the various podcasts to learn as I navigate my new hobby! 🤞🏻Cross your fingers for me!

    I love listening to the podcast(it’s my first ever!). The little bits of information are great! It’s nice to see and hear that artists that have been doing this a long time have the same dilemmas that newer artists deal with all the time!

    Finding what goes with what and to see it in my mind has always been hard so that’s great for me. I want to do more about painting myself and so that would probably even save me so money. I think what you did looks so good and I am a little bit jelly of your skills! Well done.

    Thank you for sharing this interview! I, too, paint during naptimes. I’m slowly learning how to paint and decorate my house. You have done a great job with all those pieces of furniture.

    It is always so fun to learn about each featured artist. I enjoy reading the questions and answers. I did take time for the podcast and really enjoyed it. As for the Zibras, both look like great brushes, but I am especially fascinated with the little palm brush. Have a Happy Spring!
