new mags!

I was in the city the other day and stopped in at mag nation (my reading material mecca!) and found these two gems ...

extra curricular is another great little craft mag from New Zealand. It's packed full of brilliant interviews with crafters of all sorts - really interesting and practical stuff. Beautifully photographed too. This is one of my new faves! You can check out their lovely blog here.

My other find was It's nice that, which is a magazine version of a UK design blog - lots of illustrators and other interesting artists. I really enjoy reading about other people talents and inpirations. Love this one too!

Aside from a bit of reading, it's all been about packaging up Christmas orders from my shop and presents - this is a job I really enjoy - super satisfying!

Have a great Tuesday!

I love Mag Nation! Only problem is that we don't have one in Brisbane :(
Those new mags sound great.

Sounds like some great reading. Last time I visited Mag Nation, I couldn't get to the designy bit upstairs as I had my pram :(

Thanks for the recommendations. I was thinking I need to make a visit to Mag Nation this week for a little holiday gift to myself. Might have to put those two on the shopping list.

Glad to hear that the shop is keeping you busy.
