Welcome to Ba Ba Blacksheep a podcast hosted by BowPeep for all the fiberholics out there. I’m glad you dropped by and I hope you enjoy the show. Put yourself on the map.
Hi, I’m BowPeep a shepherdess who is a fiberholic. I wish to remain anonymous, one…I’m not an expert and secondly I wish to protect the innocent.
I have learned a lot and want to “Pay it Forward” by sharing things I’ve learned along the way.
If you discover who I really am, please keep it a secret and instead experience the joy of “Pay it Forward“.
You can listen to this episode here.
