Sunday Lovin’–New (to me) Favourite Craft Magazines

It’s not an uncommon fact that I love to read. I have a Kindle, but also like books. I never really read magazines much though, only really for the free gifts they’d have every so often.

Just recently, however, I’ve gotten into 2 magazines that are new to me. They aren’t brand new magazines or anything, but I think they are fab and have me yearning to make almost everything in them!

They are both from the same publisher and you can get some really good discounts on subscriptions for them (which I’ve taken advantage of) complete with an additional free gift! I’ll add sub links underneath each of the magazine descriptions.

The first is Mollie Makes, which is a pretty cool and trendy magazine, covering many different types of craft. There are some features with blog links, lifestyle photos, tutorials and patterns, and they give away some fab free gifts. You can subscribe here and you can get a free gift of a jelly roll of Amy Butler fabric.

The second is Cross Stitcher, which from the title you can tell that it is a more specialist magazine, and it features some really cool and younger style of magazine approach. Similar to Mollie Makes, if you will. It contains many a pattern to create some less old-lady style cross stitches, and you can subscribe here-free gift is a selection of cross stitching threads.

Do you read any craft magazines or specialist hobby magazines? Leave me a comment below if you do!

And now I’m going to spend the day relaxing as I’ve not had a Sunday where I’ve done quite almost nothing for a good while.

What’s floating your boat this week?

Happy Birthday Ash Gig!

Happy Birthday Ash Gig! 4

Ash are my favourite band. They have been since I was 12, and that’s like almost 18 years ago now. I’ve been a fan for 17 years now, as I started to like them at the end of Year 7, which was 1995. I saw the Girl From Mars video on MTV whilst at a family friends house. It was a hot and sunny day, and I was having a rest from the early afternoon sun, and stuck the TV on. I was hooked.
