Welcome to the Windowsill Chats Podcast...
Since 2020, the Windowsill Chats Podcast has provided a welcoming place for artists, designers, makers and creative movers & shakers to come together over the inter-webs to laugh, learn and create together.

I'm Margo, the visionary and creative adventurer behind the Windowsill Chats Podcast-a podcast for Creatives and the Creatively Curious. I'm glad you're here.
For the past 30+ years, my creative curiosity has taken me on an adventuresome path through all aspects of the Creative Industry. I've spent decades working with artists and being one myself-and boy do we have some fun stories to share!
P.S. Join me and all your Windowsill Chats friends on Instagram @windowsillchats. I'll see you there!
So grab a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine and join me over in my sunny windowsill as we share inspiration, stories from the trenches, and a good dose of laughter to help you live out your passion and build a creative life you love.
Windowsill Chats brings you creativity from a global perspective as I talk in-depth with the friends I've met along the way.

Your review invites other creatives to join this global community. The creative life doesn't have to be a solitary one. We are better together! Thank you for sharing the Windowsill Chats love through your review it means the world!
