Magazines from Across the Pond
(1) Making - I like how this craft magazine creates themes. You can order back issues. One of my fave is the one on paper craft and cutting. (2) Mollie Makes - Very fun and exciting for the creative crafter that wants to dabble into all kinds of materials and techniques. Lots of inspirational images. I love the photos and each issue's cover always has a pair of hands holding a craft creation. Plus, they always attach a freebie craft gift. (3) Selvedge - I have seen this around for quite sometime but didn't really pay attention to it on the special new stands I'd visit in NYC. But Kaari from French General who I did a workshop at Tinsel Trading last year got me hooked on it. She was very excited about this mag and wanted to share it with me. It's quite pricey but I love how they show case things. It feels poetic. (4) Jamie - From the famous, charming and "passionate about healthy eating" chef, Jamie Oliver. His mag has been around for a while but what got me hooked was his Italian issue. I loved how the issue covered certain regions in Italy. It felt a bit like a travel issue for foodies. You can get back issues here.
