My favorite crafting magazine
My favorite crafting magazine is french Marie - Claire Idees. And I assure you, Marie - Claire has the best ideas when it comes to crafting. Those of you who are into crafting probably are already aware of the existence of this magazine. The rest should go and buy it immediately. It is quarterly, today I bought the spring issue. The day Marie - Claire Idees comes out, is always a good day. I haven't opened yet this issue, no no, I am going to restrain myself until I find some quite moment when the kids are asleep, to enjoy it as it deserves. You will find lots of inspiration in it with the most wonderful projects in many crafting categories, mainly decorative objects, but also knitting, sewing, furniture makeover, cooking, art de la table, jewerly and accessories making. Most of have a sweet, romantic, nostalgic style, inspired by old times, but under a fresh point of view. Even if you don't speak french, the pictures will keep you totally satisfied. There is also a Marie - Claire Idees blog. Every October the magazine organizes Le Salon Marie - Claire Idees in Paris, a crafting related exhibition, which I so want to visit some time. The pictures are from older issues of the magazine.
