#77 Day in the Life of a Crochet Designer

Looking for a glimpse of the life of a crochet designer?

Dedri from Look at What I Made is on the show today to share her real life experiences as a full time designer, mom and part-time worker. Dedri has a lot going on and somehow she is able to juggle it all and release some of the most gorgeous designs. One of those infamous patterns is Sophie’s Universe, a CAL published back in 2015 that is still incredibly popular today.

In this episode, I like to think of you as a fly on the wall as Dedri and I chat about our routines, struggles and strategies. You’ll find that we structure our day and year quite different but the one thing we do share is the simple fact that we get stuff done. My hope for you after hearing this episode is to walk away with some actionable tips from two designers that you try on your quest to see what works best for you.

This episode is especially relatable for those of you who are designers and content creators, however, we can all benefit from productivity tips to implement in all areas of life.
