Hello! Welcome to Meet This Maker, the interview series about all things creativity and making!

I’m so excited to share with you one of my dearest friends, Meghan Coleman

Meghan is a wife and a mama to two sweet littles and she’s also a creative.

Though she’s creative in several ways, lately her main focus for making has been in hand lettering. Her work is truly so beautiful.

Our conversation was so, so good. I know you’ll love hearing how Meghan makes time to be creative despite having a day job, two small kids, a house, and a husband! We could’ve talked all day! I guess that’s why we’re besties!

You’ll want to hear what the number one thing she’d tell herself of five years ago is, and you’ll definitely want to watch to find out what the best advice she’s ever received is...it’s SO GOOD!
