I'm getting lots of fun out of life these days.. yes sir!
All the articles inside this magazine are parts gathered of different blogs. They are then edited in a poetic and intimate style. The whole magazine reads as a book/story in itself, a story told by different people.
Just like reading blogs on the internet, by clicking your way from link to link, from blog to blog. Then there's also that beautiful cohesion; in style of writing (it is edited from real blogs), subject (it's all about Arts & Crafts) and visually (pictures and images).
So I think - after reading almost the whole magazine - that blogs are perfect for printing. Of course they need some little adjustments (like links and comments) but it's almost better than a 'real' magazine. Because I believe it's more alive.
This next quote from the Editor Letter on the first page of the magazine sums it all up:
"I've written before of my strong believe that blogging can be a life-changing experience. It's just as true to say that blogging can be a world-changing experience. I am happy to say that those of us who are artful bloggers are changing the world for the better"

On another note I've finished my 'I heart my Garden, and you?' cross-stitch project.
Ooh and I've made this little miniature too:
Okay, have to run cause I will be just in time to get back to work (I'm on my lunch break right now), have to run or else I'll be late.. and my boss doesn't blog or doesn't even know what a blog is (duh!).
So I'm pretty sure she won't understand me being late..
And remember : 'There's no honey without some stinging bees'
