Living Craft Magazine

Picture074_edited1 

It was all gray this morning, as you can see from my picture. I love getting up in the early morning, just as it is getting light, make a cup of tea and enjoy the views from my picture windows. The tide is in this morning and I could barely see the water. Leavers are everywhere. All my walkways are covered in red and yellow. We have a forty foot white birch that is raining us with golden leaves, it feels like it is snowing. I am busy baking today for a bake sale for my sister tomorrow. I love days like this.

I have a new magazine to tell you about, if you have not heard. Living Crafts,it is wonderful. Living Crafts is based on Waldorf principles (read below). I love their approach to hands-on crafts and using natural things. Although i still love my glitter ;-) While this magazine has handi-crafts for children, there was plenty for adults too. There is a knitted smock top I am dying to make, beeswax snails. edible dye painted plates. And you have to see the knitted farm. Oh my gosh there is no words to describe. Well I am going to have to adopt some baby so I can make these. It is very inspiring and there is a free crochet crown pattern. So please check it out.

The photo is beautiful and I love the old door! It gives me an idea for an old door I am about to replace (with another old door of course). You are so talented, Clarice (refering to all your posts)!

I'm glad you have the leaves raining down too! I love looking out and seeing the reds and golds in our yard!

Did you subscribe to the magazine or did you find it on a store shelf somewhere?

Hugs, Mary T.

The magazine sounds so lovely. I'm not familiar with the Waldorf principles--so many interesting things in the world to learn about.

I'm back. That picture is beautiful. Do you live right on the sound? Sounds like a fairytale ( or storybook, lol) .

Hi Clarice,
Sounds like a lovely morning to me.
I haven't heard of that magazine. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Have a great day,
Rosemary

Dannielle

oh goodness, I need to get my hands on that magazine!

Today's photo is gorgeous! Lucky you. :-)

You've described the perfect day, in many ways for me, Clarice. It's a lovely photograph that you've shared.
I would have loved this magazine when my son was small. I embraced many of the Waldorf principles when I was raising him, and we did a lot of seasonal crafting with natural materials.
The sun just burst out from behind a cloud here. I'm off on a walk to gather a few small pinecones for a little something I'm making now.
Take care!
