Listen: The finish line is in sight! For Stop 7 of 9 in Cortney and Faythe's Grand Day Out around Milwaukee's creative community, we jet across town to one of those beautiful old houses on Leighton Boulevard to speak with Janelle Gramling, who produces children's and women's clothing from recycled materials as Little Ocean.

Janelle brings us into her beautiful home studio and discusses her life as Little Ocean: Funny enough, Janelle had posters up from events she's particularly liked or where her work's been featured, and Faythe's name was all over them.
