Mother Earth Living

Hello all!

As you can probably guess from my 7 month absence from posting, I haven't done a whole lot of crafting lately.  However, the beauty (and sometimes the curse) of the internet, is that once things are put on it - they float around and gain a life of their own.

So I was slightly surprised when I received an email from a lovely magazine requesting to feature a project I posted on this blog way back in 2010. I was completely flattered and I felt kind of like some D list celebrity still earning credit for some cheesy cult classic film they were in a decade earlier. Be on the lookout for my Hallmark channel movie coming out soon, I'll be co-starring alongside Molly Ringwald and Steve Guttenberg!
The project was my Recycled Can Lid Plant Markers and I'm happy to say that those can lid markers were much more successful than the poor plants I marked them with (I really should stop trying to garden - it's incredibly sad).

The magazine is Mother Earth Living and they've put together a very lovely Handmade Holiday section in their November/December issue, featuring several quick, easy and thoughtful handmade holiday gift ideas.

I must say it gave me some great gift ideas as well - even if they're just for myself.  I really am the most gracious gift recipient I know!

They sent me a complimentary copy of the magazine and I must say I'm enjoying every page of it.  It's got tons of great tips on living every aspect of life: like food, skincare, sleep, etc., a little more healthily (is that a word?) and naturally.  I'm most impressed with how practical and non pretentious it is.  I've met some pretty high and might flax seed toting Granola's in my day and the vibe of this magazine is nothing like that.
So a big shout out and thanks to Mother Earth Living for including me in your fantastic magazine!
(FYI - I was not compensated for this post in any way and all the opinions expressed are my own. I just wanted to say thanks and toot my own horn a little bit.)
