made with love



Today my copy of Peppermint magazine arrived in the mail. In the past I've unfortunately lucked out on getting my hands on a copy as they sell like hotcakes from the newsagents stands. Avoiding the same fate for this issue I went online and subscribed.

And what a beautiful magazine Peppermint is!!!

In this issue, myself and 14 other crafters and designers contributed to the article Made With Love: the world of DIY. Tess Curran pieced together a beautifully written article that brings together the thoughts on cyber community, sustainability and crafting with conscience. It's a great read!

Here is a list of those who were featured in the article

One Red Robin

Rourke & Henry
Red Seed Studio
Anna Laura
Betty & Hamish
Love, Janie Lou
Jellygnite
Lark
Betty Jo
Dear Fii
Two Cheese Please
Tabitha Emma
Old Yarns: reclaimed linens
Philos-o-face

Justine Telfer also gives a great interview about the role Mixtape has had in raising the profile of the DIY craft movement. Another great read!!

It is a fantastic article isn't it! Tess is such an excellent writer (she's the features writer for Peppermint). I do love the way she's woven this craft article together letting every one of us tell our stories.
I made those letters (i mention shyly). Was so glad to be able to contribute to this mag that I love so much.
