006: One Little Word with Ali Edwards

Do you have a mantra or word that you live by? For me, there is something so powerful in choosing a word that can be a focal point to help guide your life’s journey.

On today’s episode, I am joined by Ali Edwards, designer, blogger, workshop instructor and author. We chat about choosing a word to keep you accountable in all aspects of your life and how having a word helps you to embrace the grey areas. I always love talking to Ali, she's such a real, authentic and encouraging force. She is someone that I have admired for so many reasons and I am sure that many of you have too. We also discuss owning your story and celebrating it, being okay with being a beginner, and recognizing the importance of words in your life and the impact that they can bring to strengthen relationships.

005: Pursue Your Purpose

As a recovering workaholic, I can totally relate to those out there who find themselves pouring into their work. However, I can’t quite blame myself because I truly love what I do. On this solo episode, I am sharing a heartfelt email that I received from a fellow blogger, Christine. Christine shares how inspired she felt after watching one of my YouTube videos and how being burnt out from her work has led her astray from her hobbies and passions.

These are the types of messages that really make me that much more passionate about what I do. I only hope that I am bringing a positive impact on the world. It goes to show that you have to give what you feel the world needs as you have no idea who it will inspire. I hope today’s message will leave you feeling uplifted and energized. The more we spread creativity and happiness that comes from pursuing our passions, the better off our amazing community will be.

The beauty of our individual lives is that we can uniquely shape the life that we want to live. I hope today’s episode will be a reminder to take just 10 minutes today to do what you love.

004: The Beauty of Life’s Moments with Stacy Julian

When you are going through your day to day life, be sure to remember to tap into the beauty of the little moments. Often times, it’s easy to forget that rainbows only come after a storm. That is exactly what we are going to be chatting about with today’s guest, Stacy Julian.

Stacy is a friend of mine whom I met several years back after reaching out to her to meet in person at CHA. Then I was able to be a part of her event, 12.12.12 with Big Picture Classes, in Maui. Spending time with Stacy always brightens my day because I love that she is so open to sharing not only the shiny, happy moments but also to sharing the ones where she grew from struggles and challenges. On this episode, she shares how she got into scrapbooking and pioneered the Library of Memories. We also chat about letting go of what no longer serves you and the power that comes from women collaborating with other women.

003: Embracing Your Emotions with Randy Taran

We live in a culture that often doesn’t allow for sadness. It’s so important that you learn to fully embrace all of your emotions, even the difficult ones such as guilt or sadness as it can be the fuel that you need to craft a life you love.

Today I am joined by Randy Taran, Founder and CEO of Project Happiness, an organization dedicated to reaching at least 10 million people with their message of kindness, happiness and empathy. Randy’s entire business and career are centered around one of the most vital ingredients for a fulfilling life: happiness. Randy and I chat about embracing emotions, how it can help your creativity and learning to honor and move past negative emotions. We also discuss her new book, Emotional Advantage and her favorite part about writing it.

002: Let Your Colors Shine with Cathy Heller

In this life, you have to give yourself permission to take action and go for what you want. You have something valuable that the world needs. You can do so much by simply opening your heart, being messy and beginning.

On today’s episode, I am joined by a friend of mine and fellow podcaster, Cathy Heller. We chat about failing forward and the importance of taking action. She shares how she got to this point in her career, the failures that she has faced along the way and how she overcomes limiting beliefs. We discuss giving yourself permission to share your gift and how to look at failures as opportunities.

001: Welcome to Craft a Life You Love


Welcome to my podcast, I am your host, Amy Tangerine and this is Craft a Life You Love. I am so excited that you’re here and I can’t wait for you to hear everything that I have planned for this show. Craft a Life You Love is about empowering you to create space and intention for your own personal hobbies, happiness and harmony. It’s about giving yourself grace, and cutting a juicy little slice of life out for you to enjoy that is all your own. This is a place that is judgment-free, created for you to rejuvenate and connect with who you are.

Whatever brought you here, I just want to remind you that you are enough. I am so glad you have chosen to be present and take a listen. My hope for this podcast is to bring on some of the amazing people I have met on this journey, while also sprinkling in a few solo episodes too.

On today’s episode, I touch on infusing creativity, positivity, fun and intention into your everyday life. I also share the importance of taking breaks and checking in with ourselves, making sure we are doing the things we love rather than just chasing “busy.”
