Alicia was thrilled to guest host a new episode bringing back a previous guest, Shelby McFadden. She was the original graphic designer on the Create! Magazine team, who also did the layouts for both versions of our Smartist Guide books. In the years since we first interviewed her on The Create Podcast, she’s since gone on to launch a new art & lifestyle publication called CandyFloss Magazine and an immensely successful wearable art and home goods Etsy shop called Fugly Barbie. This interview covers balancing time between business and being a mom, growing her Etsy store in just one year, and so much more!
