I am not big craft magazines. Book yes... I can justify those easily
but magazines hmmm never really been that kid of girl.
I cant quite justify them when they seem a temporary thing.
An indulgence and I think I would rather spend my indulging money on something else. I need a decent amount to read, not just look at the pretty pictures.
There see to be a lot of craft magazines around at the moment, catching in the rise in interest. Being a blog reader I think I get enough ideas/inspiration form that and so don't need to search out magazines.
That being said I do like to have a nose through a copy of a new magazine if I find it.
I promise I am not one of those who stands in WHSmiths reading them. I will put my hand in my pocket and buy one.
I have a subscription to Embroidery magazine. Its more onto the art side of the craft and is not a project magazine. I read it from cover to cover and its suits me well. It reminds me that its important to keep making things that make people.
I took out a short subscription to Mollie Makes.
It was very good value and I was just being nosey
It is a beautifully produced, stylish magazine but the craft is a little on the simple side for me. I just don't need to read an article on a picnic that would requires so much preparation that it would never live up to your expectations Now I know they are not really suggesting you go on such a picnic, its all about styles and trends but I think it annoyed me a bit too much I do not want to dress my kids up for a picnic .
If one of them chooses to wear a bow tie...
and I do have one of those types of child...
then it would make great pictures but picnics are about relaxing, playing, beautiful family moments will happen naturally, I dont need a pinny on to make it happen
I agree, I have entirely missed the point of the article. Its all about a style.
Hey ho its juts not for me.
I love finding magazines while on holiday and I have a group of friends who know to look out for them for me. This summer has bought a couple of issues of Marie Clare idees and a copy of Hand/eye magazine. Both of which are very good.
I know, I know, I have just moaned about the over styling of an article and then I coo over Marie Clare idees.
But I do need some new pot holders and if they could just look as pretty as these........
Anyone got a guide to french crochet terms they can lend me?
