Beyond Excited...I'm in a Magazine!!!

This summer has been very exciting for me! I've been featured in Homespun Magazine from Australia in their June and July issues. I never thought in a million years, when I started this blog, that I would ever be in a magazine.

The June issue shared a tip on my fabric filing system and the July issue was a 5 page feature on my sewing room. I still get butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it being in print!

I love blogging and sharing the things I do in my craft room with all of you, so this is truly the icing on the cake!!

I'm putting together a new post on my sewing room sharing all the new tips and tricks I've done over the last 2 years since my last sewing room post...look for it this week.

I want to thank Janai and Susan from Homespun Magazine for wanting to feature me in their magazine and all of you, my followers, for visiting my blog each day. I can't thank you enough!!

Have a great day,
~Karen~

  40. Hi Karen, I am from Australia and have my local newsagency put away Homespun for me each month. I read the articles on you and your sewing room and was very impressed and inspired. Funnily enough, it was only by chance that I found your blog a few days later, and am equally impressed and inspired. You are so generous with your knowledge and inspiration, and I am very glad to have found you. Congratulations on being featured in this wonderful magazine - you deserve it!!! With warmest regards x

  53. Wow congratulations Karen! So well deserved for you to finally be in a magazine! Did they contact you or did you submit something to them? I'm thrilled for you. Now if they just had that magazine here in the US...looked it up and way too pricey for a subscription to the US, darn!

    ReplyDelete
  54. That is wonderful!! Congratulations!! :)

  55. Excellent! I discovered you looking on the Internet for ways to organize a sewing/craft area. You had just posted the blog that day about what you did to your space. I fell in love. My husband chuckles because I have accused him of a variety of "bro-mances" over the 30+ years we've been together; now he says I have a "blog-mance" with you, your blog, your crafting/tips/organization...We both love your site. Thank you for the ideas. I share them ALL the time!

  56. Congratulations Karen.. your blog is so helpful and such an inspiration. I am glad you were featured in the Homespun magazine and your latest ideas with the mail slots and dentist cabinet are perfect for all the "little" stuff we accumulate.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Congratulations! Glad you have made it into a magazine I can buy at my local store.. I'll be getting a copy.

    Cheers

  64. I just read this post (I've been extra busy for a few months and haven't kept up with blogs as much as I would like) and am excited to realise that we are in the same magazine. That is my quilt on the front of the June issue of Homespun. Very exciting for both of us. I love the ideas on your blog. Vicki vickilorraine at hotmail dot com
