Anyone out there fans of Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood's long running podcast, CraftSanity? It's definitely my favorite of the craft podcasts I've found. And while I"m bummed she isn't producing many shows these days the good news is she's putting her creative energy into another amazing project, CraftSanity Magazine.
I've been following Jennifer's journey from podcasting to publishing via her blog and really admire her hard work and commitment to the craft/DIY/handmade community. She's awesome.
So you can bet I am THRILLED to have a project in the latest issue of CraftSanity Magazine.
My copy came a few weeks ago and it was so exciting to open it and see my byline. I love the title she gave my project, "Just Add Water."
The article came about because earlier this year some friends and I were discussing our dreams and goals for 2013 and I wrote down, "get a craft project published in a magazine."
A few weeks later Jennifer mentioned on her blog she was looking for another article for her next issue and I took a leap and submitted the first quilt from my It Takes Two project. Jennifer was interested and away we went. I drafted the article and sent photos. She tried the project, added more photos, edited and voila, there I am in print.
So now I must admit I have followed CraftSanity for ages but had not yet invested in the magazine. Jennifer is into knit and crochet (I am not) and. let's be honest, a self published magazine without any advertising to speak of is a pricey investment. But Jennifer really packs in a ton of content and offers a digital addition for a great deal. This issue features printmaking which I am super interested in learning more about and has several other projects. The magazine is priced like a cheap book but the amount content actually exceeds many books. Here's how to buy it.
And here's my article. In print! Yay! Thanks so much, Jennifer!
