greencraft!

I had such a wonderful surprise in my mailbox: the premier edition of GreenCraft! It's Stampington's newest publication and my absolute favorite. Even if I didn't have my very own feature in it, I would consider it to be a new favorite magazine. When GreenCraft's lovely editor first contacted me, I was almost as excited about the concept as I was about being published in it. My love for recycled newspapers has a beautiful spread and I'm absolutely thrilled!

If you're familiar with any of Stampingon's other magazines, you know they are really more like beautiful art books. This magazine is no different, except in GreenCraft almost every ingenious project has the instructions to go with them. Eco-art at its very best! Lots of new twists to transforming everything from vintage pieces to rescuing materials from your recycling bins. And of course, some good coffeesack ideas are included... because we all know how incredible burlap is! I love that it's on the cover! Not my apron, but so happy to see it front row and center! There is enough gorgeous upcyling to make me swoon! Serious green bliss... I haven't been asked to promote like this... just can't help it. Taking a deep breath now... and smiling wide. Talk about a sweet birthday present!

  21. This looks like a great magazine! We are moving home to Ohio from the UAE in a couple weeks and one of the things I have missed most is reading magazine! I'm looking to add some new subscriptions when we get home and this might be one of them! Thanks! It's a hard time to be starting up a magazine now but this looks like a great one to support.
