stitching, crafting, creating
Have you seen the magazine Stitch Craft Create? It's packed with craftiness, and each season features a new issue of themed loveliness. Coming to newsstands (also known as the magazine section...I love how old terms hang on!) next week, you'll find their holiday issue. With a project from me on the cover!
When they invited me to create a piece back in the spring, I was delighted. So you can imagine how excited I am to have my Merry Merry Postcard in such a place of honor!
One of the things that I loved most about working on this is that the magazine gave me an "idea board" for the issue I was designing for. It showed colors that they wanted to use (pastels with red!), and photos of the kind of feeling they were going for (vintage holiday!). The colors were wonderful to work with, especially given that it was spring time when I was stitching this up!
You can order your copy of Stitch Craft Create online today, or head to your local craft store, or even a grocery store or Wal-Mart to pick it up in person starting October 2nd.
(I think this means it's time to start thinking about Christmas stitching, crafting, and creating!
