Kelley Gilbert of Casa Crafty looks amazing in her Carolina Mae. I love that she pushed through her comfort zone and tried the large floral of Isabelle in Azul!!!! That right there is Good Company. Kelley thanks for the review of Carolina Mae and your lovely self looking so marvelous!!

Wow, what a week of wonderful articles about Sis Boom and Jenny Eliza feeling so honored. Life here is good on the farm. (figurtively due to the labradoodle energy as many of you know.) We have been snowed in for days and I have just been creating designs I think you will love. First up we have the wonderful GenQ Magazine which I have to say I loved Scott Hansen’s out of the box questions. What an incredible writer. Just one correction , I was never on staff or even considered a contributing editor to Country Living Magazine, I just came up with a ton of crafts for them and Nancy Soriano was just the best editor ever!! period!! I had more fun in those years and I love all my girlfriends from those years. We were one big family!!! I did craft videos and staged photo shoots in my home it was out of this world. I loved going to the Hearst Building and showing my stuff!! They were always so receptive and always wanted more!!! They hold a dear place in my heart. So with that all that said forgive the mis-communication Scott and of course I missed it on the proof read..#Mybad. The interview was so stimulating and the questions took me back to my childhood and I thank them for the time I got to reflect and see the island’s impact on my soul!!!! Scott of Blue Nickel Studios my sincerest thanks!! Check out his blog he is one fine quilter in huge demand!!!
Next up my on line girlfriend Chloe Owens is starting an amazing online magazine and approached me for an interview. For those who don’t know Chloe I feel privileged to introduce you. She is an amazing crafter and I know you will agree, you may already have her books in your stash!! See below and get to amazon!!! so from my understanding she has launched this amazing online magazine that is sure to become your go to for fun projects and reads!!! The name of the mag is Bibelot, the book of creative curiosities never heard the word but when I saw the definition I was on board!! My deepest thanks to Chloe for her genius and for supporting the handmade, artistic community!! I also loved the interview, very creative questions!!
Bibelot – [Bi-be-loh]
1. An attractive or curious trinket.
2. A small object of curiosity, beauty or rarity.
3. A miniature book, especially one that is finely crafted.
Bibelot, “The Little Book of Creative Curiosities”, will be a quarterly craft, design and lifestyle magazine celebrating the hand-made, the ethical, and the unique.
Bibelot is about more than craft projects; it represents an imaginative and sustainable way of life. Readers will feel stimulated, uplifted and motivated.
Bibelot will begin its life as a blog, an online hub bringing artistic, original and innovative people together. It’s a space for sharing ideas, learning and sparking inspiration!
Below is some old PR from my Country Living Days!!
