The NEW Somerset Home and a SUPER good deal!

Just a couple of super cool newsy bits to share with you today. First, one of my all time favorite yearly publications, Somerset Home is making it's way to mailboxes and newsstands all over the country. With over a 100 creative ideas to beautify your home, you're sure to find something to flip over in this issue. I received my advance copy yesterday and love it. I'm also excited to say that it has not just one but TWO articles featuring my beloved steel wire. One is mine, and in it I show you how to creatively reuse an old book by turning it into a photo display.  The other article was written by the french wire artist Claire Rougerie. She tells you how to make the most adorable wire cuckoo clock. Seriously. cute. I just popped over to her website and am absolutely in love. (But it is wire and I LOVE, love, love wire.) Plus, the issue has lots and lots of fabulous ideas for beautifying your home. I hope you'll check it out. It officially hits newsstands on August 1st. Whoo-hoo!

The second little item I thought I'd share is that over at the Create Mixed Media site they are offering a bundle of three essential books for the mixed media and fabric enthusiast. My book, Creative Bloom, is one of those books, the other is Ruth Rae's Layered, Tattered and Stitched and third is the all new Mixed and Stitched by Jen Osborn. The bundle is available at a special discounted price but only for a limited time. I love a good deal and this looked like a fabulous one to share with you. All three titles for only $34.95. You save 53% on all three!

 I have a class I'm teaching tonight and have been so excited all day so I'm going to go finish up my prep on that. Hope you're having a wonderful, creative day and talk to you again soon!Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for the heads up Jen, I can't wait to get it! I just bought 4 new magazines last week for the Stampington collections, I Looooove them all.. but I can't keep up with them there are so many, but I do have my favourites and Somerset Home is one of them.
