you probably don't... because it's not out yet and it's my first time ever. and just incase it's my last time ever, i am going to do an extra long happy dance.
one day, in late springtime 2011, i got an email that almost made me wet myself. unlike when i really do pee a little every time i sneeze.
the editor of a new magazine, stitch craft create, wanted to feature little old me in their premier holiday issue. and i said no.
i, of course, said ummmyessignmeuprightnowpuhlease.
i had the amazing opportunity to create some of my favorite things and share the tutorials with all who will read. i made yarn wreaths with felt flowers and a few pairs of bias tape rosette earrings. i was quite pleased with how they came out if i do say so myself. i thought i might sell the wreaths but quickly realized that i couldn't part with these babies. they are my most favorite ones i've ever made. it's true.
when my preview issue arrived last week i called my mom and she rushed over. she even brought me a celebratory pumpkin spice candle. you shouldn't have, mom!
i kid you not when i say that we flipped through the pages drooling. i've had the magazine just about a week now and i still can't put it down. the amount of projects, DIYS, gift giving ideas, and eye candy is out of control. every time i open it i put a sticky note on another idea i love or project to add to my list.
stitch craft create is so on target for everything i want the holidays to look like this year... for the way i think most creative minds would imagine it. i fell in love with every detail, not just the projects, but the photography, the layout, the fonts. oh me oh my, it's all perfection.
