Making....beautiful crafts in your home

..whilst out shopping recently, I came across this magazine on the rack, now it's quite expensive, I must admit, but after flicking through, I thought I would need to have a closer look.....now I am one of those people who loves tinkering and making, but is not really very good at it, the things I attempt to make turn out OK, but just OK, they don't have that professional look...Anyway as we are now approaching Christmas head on, I am trying to be ultra organised this year, so I have the time to make a wreath, gift tags and decorate my own wrap paper, well thats the aim!? Anyway back to Making.....it just turns out to have ideas for making a wreath, decorating wrap paper plus much more...











I especially love the letters and will be having a go at those, and the blackboards look fun too....There is also a guide to quilt making and an interview with Kaffe Fassett...
Issue 3 is out on the 9th December and is being advertised as the Vintage edition, interesting!!
With the snow falling, what better way to pass the time.....
Have a good week........

  2. I did see an earlier edition and thought it interesting but as it was so expensive I didn't actually buy one - must pop into Smiths and have a look.

  6. I have just bought issue 6 (Apr 2011) Natural Elements and it is very lovely - I love kitting and working with felt & this magazine gives me loads of creative ideas - just wish I had the time to get creative! It's difficult with a 3yr old and 7month old! I'll be able to get them involved one day though and I love the thought of leaving magazines/books around for them to find and be inspired by.
