Great New Magazine...Home Grown Hospitality

I recently purchsed this great publication by Paper Crafts Magazine. It has the most charming projects in it. The editor really captured how I feel about my daily like, crafting and homemaking. I so want a healthy balance. Here's what she wrote: "Have you ever wondered how life gets so busy and complicated? Do you want to learn how to simplify, but still be able to make handmade items, gifts, and cards for your home, friends, and family? Learn to live a “Simply Complicated” lifestyle from this brand new special issue, Homegrown Hospitality, brought to you by CK Media. This issue is full of great ideas on how to celebrate and document both the momentous occasions in life as well as those meaningful everyday moments. You’ll find inspiration for neighbor gifts, handmade cards, scrapbook albums, cake decorating, organizing, sewing, quilting, and much, much more. Make each moment matter by simply sharing a little of your newfound Homegrown Hospitality. " I just love that term, "simply complicated". How about you? Pretty much sums up what I want right now in my life. I don't want to be bored, but I want things simply organized and decorated. *sigh*
The editor has a blog too. Home Grown Hospitality
It appears she updates the blog almost daily. Check it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, you were very sweet.
I loved your post today! I've seen that magazine on the stands, but I've almost been afraid to look, you know what I mean? I posted yesterday, I think it was, on "living simply," and the phrase, "simply complicated" would have fit it well! You're right, that is life in a nutshell these days. It really is those little creative moments that we squirrel away for ourselves that help make it more lovely, for ourselves and for our families.
Thanks for the tip, and for sharing. I look forward to returning soon!
