In my inbox today I received some pretty nice promotions from INTERWEAVE that they asked that I share with friends. I really love this company and if you aren't familiar with them I hope you will check out their website. They offer books and magazines with all kinds of information on crafts and fine art. My favorites are Studios Magazine and Cloth Paper Scissors. They are offering a 20% discount with the coupon code: JOLLY.
Thankfully, we are approaching a new year, the store is open and I am feeling a little less pushed. With the new year will come a new focus...my art...for the first time in a couple of years and more time to look at other's art and to try new things. There's nothing I love more than designing and painting floorcloths, but I am really intrigued by all the things artists are doing with "junk". My 8' x 8' worktable now has 64 square feet of "potential art" stored beneath it. Anything I find that has an interesting shape, texture, or color has been saved for future use. I am now officially a hoarder.
Do you have a favorite art or craft magazine or junking blog? Leave me a comment. I'm all ears!
