The LoveCrafts Show episode 2: Galentine's Day with Debbie Bliss

Published on February 3, 2020 3 min read

The LoveCrafts Show is back, bigger and better than before! This time with a super special guest who we’re just dying for you to meet. Sit back, relax, grab your WIP and settle in for a good old catch up with Uncle X and Merino!

You can find The LoveCrafts Show on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

This month we introduce you to the delightful Debbie Bliss, in all her fabulous glory! Merion and Jamie look back on Debbie’s 40+ years in the industry and everything she’s learnt about being a maker!

The LoveCrafts Show also chatted about sharing the love not just one day a year, but every day of the year (Oh Jamie you old romantic!) and with those you love romantically and platonically, hello Galentine’s day! Find out how we’re celebrating, and what’s coming up next in the beautiful world of Debbie Bliss. With plenty of #BlissBantz thrown in! 

Tips, tricks, advice and a fair amount of silliness, this is The LoveCrafts Show!
