Last weekend Michaels was having a one day only sale from 4 -8 pm. We had a running list of project needs and so we headed to our closest store to pick up some discounted goodies. Being that the sale was for limited time, the line for checkout was quite long. So, we did what any curious minded crafters do in line, we read through all the fun project magazines.
One in particular caught my eye: Fresh Home. This quarterly magazine is sort of a twist on DIY magazine meets Real Simple with project ideas, recipes, travel suggestions, and overall decorating tips. Its a good one, and at first I thought “a ha! a new shelter magazine!” But, it turns out, Fresh Home has been published quarterly since Spring 2009. Huh. I’m surprised I don’t see more mentions on other design blogs about, because it really does have some simple and wonderful ideas.
I think we will plan to subscribe. Right now we only receive Martha Stewart Living and Sunset Magazine, since we know its a slippery slope when it comes to having glossy pretty pictures waiting in your mailbox after a long day of architecting (or whatever it is we do).
Anyway, if you’re looking for something new to read or some new fun projects, Fresh Home seems to be a good bet. There is one particular project in the Winter 2011 that has me VERY excited and hopefully I will be sharing soon. In the meantime, these other articles from their blog caught my eye:
How to hang artwork using picture rail (its the only way we do it here in the Lemon House!)
Creative Staircases (Drawers! IN. YOUR. STAIRS. Genious!)
Locker Pantry (cute!)
