Isn't this just the cutest bubble wrap packaging?
The zine is called "Grass & Stars
Early this morning I discovered a website that had a link to Bespoke zine. Since the zine is mailed from Australia, I opted for the electronic version and I was able to download it immediately. The zine is 44 pages long and definitely worth the $6 and change (US).
Included in this issue were numerous interviews with various artists, tutorials, giveaways, stories, blogs, etc. I loved reading about the various artists and how they came to be in business.
Then this evening I came home and found my issue of Craft Sanity that I ordered on Monday. This is Jennifer's first issue of her zine and it is quite professionally done. If you haven't discovered Craft Sanity, you may want to steal a few minutes and check it out. She has lots of podcasts that include interviews with various and sundry artists. She also writes a column for Grand Rapids press. I understand her zine will be available electronically also, but this being her first issue and it being US based, I was curious and wanted the "pretty" version. I am not disappointed. There are lots and lots of projects and even though I do not knit or crochet (it's on the list to learn), I enjoyed ogling over the pictures!! I have not finished reading this zine yet so I'm looking for a couple more spare moments in which to finish. Kudos to you, Jennifer!! You had a dream, went for it, and it looks like it's a SUCCESS!!

We had our company Christmas party a week ago. This is what I made off with in the gift exchange.
How awesome is this??!!
There was some cleaning going on in the sewing room (dare I say "studio") and I discovered these little gems that I made years ago. I still love them.
And to finish the evening, here are the latest envelopes:
