I 've said here before that I'm definitely a magazine collector. I have a ton of them. However,the advances of digital technology means I can now read so many great magazines on my IPADs.
With that in mind, allow me to share a fantastic new digital magazine with you called Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll.
I think you're going to love it.
First, let me tell you a little about the editor behind the magazine.
I first met Jennifer Carroll during an online blogging course we were both taking a while back and I was immediately taken with her lovely blog and beautiful photography.
We reconnected again after we were both named as finalists in the 2012 Country Living Blogging Awards in the LIFESTYLE category.
This May/June 2013 issue has been a real labor of love for Jennifer who says the idea of creating a magazine is the culmination of a long-held dream. Her vision of providing compelling and creative content is evident with every finger swipe on your IPad.
You can download the App now in the ITunes store.
The magazine is only available for IPad right now but an Android version is in the works.
I think you'll enjoy all the interactive features built into this digital issue which will make it much easier for readers to pin, save, clip and share the projects and ideas that catch thier eye.
Of course, video can speak louder than words so at this point, instead of me telling you about Celebrating Everyday Life… I'll just show you.
Check out this digital preview.
Jennifer asked me to join her group of regular contributors to the magazine and I'm thrilled to be included along with so many talented fellow bloggers.
You're going to be blown away with all the inspiration that this group of ladies has generated which includes DIY projects, recipes, crafts, lifestyle features and so much more.
Here's a sneek peek at my layout in this issue of the magazine which focuses on how to make burlap cookie gift sacks.
The rustic sacks have a decidedly back-to-nature theme with a sweet nod to our feathered friends.
Imagine how proud you'd be to see your vision finally come to life in the colorful pages of a magazine? You'd be over the moon, right?
That's exactly how Jennifer feels right now. Check out her heartfelt video preview below and also put a voice with the magazine.
I hope you pick up a copy and I'm sure Jennifer would love to know what you think.
Be sure to drop her a line after you've poured through the gorgeous issue.
Stay tuned, this is the first of many issues to come that will tap into your creative spirit and your love of family, friends and simple beauty by celebrating everyday life. ♥
COMING UP ON MONDAY
It's that time of year when attention turns to prepping various home-based gardens.
In my case, that means I'm thinking about what I need to do to start my herb garden.
Coming up on Monday (4/15, yes tax day), I'm pulling out and dusting off supplies to get the process started.
Hope you pop by again next week for a handful of tips on getting your seasonal herb garden in gear and off the ground.
See you then.
