want some free mojo?

I just got this pretty magazine in the mail along with TWO extra copies to share. :)
I don't know about you, but there is just something about holding an ACTUAL magazine in your hands that evokes a certain kind of inspiration.  Not that I have lots of time to sit down with a magazine...but when I do...it always, always, always reminds me of my single, kid-less days...when my best friend and I would go to Barnes and Noble with our knitting and sit for hours, knitting, drinking coffee and reading magazines.  Those were the BEST days.  And while for now, those days are sitting on the back burner, I have hopes of them returning one day. 
It was nice to sit down with this magazine and look at all the pretty photos, feel the texture of the paper and be inspired.  I found a few things I want to make...some for me and some for gifts....
I'm thinking I want to make new matching stockings this year...maybe this would be a start?
These look like fun...maybe get the boys to draw itty bitty pictures to go in the center and use them as gifts for family or teachers?
 I just love the aqua flower to the right...making those for sure.
 But these are my favorite...I plan to make a couple to add to a scarf I am knitting.  Beautimous. 
Here's another photo...lots of texture and pretty fabric...I am loving the batting peeking through.

Want to win a copy?  I have two to giveaway.  To enter, just leave a comment telling me how much you love me...just kidding...any old comment will do. :)

Friday seems like a good day to choose a winner. :) 

And don't forget to enter the Less Ordinary Designs giveaway over HERE.

AndreaBeth said...

I stumbled across your blog a couple of weeks ago and I've already passed it along to several friends and browsed through most of the archives. I'm really enjoying all of the craft ideas and I think that i just might actually love you! ;) I particularly appreciate your honesty about your love for Jesus. (And I'll admit that the phrase "Yay Jesus" has found it's way into my speech a few times in the past couple of weeks.)

April b said...

Looks like a fun magazine - if I don't win I will be looking for it on the mag shelves.
I bought can biscuits last night and hope to make some donuts one night this week. I remember having homemade donuts for dessert in the fall as a kid. I loved watching them rise to the top of the oil and sometimes they would flip themselves. Just thought I don't think I would have been allowing my kids to be that close to a pan of hot oil - different times I guess, we didn't have seat belts either.

thanks for your daily words and my smiles. April

CJ said...

What a great magazine full of crafty goodness! Like Pinterest right in your hands. :)

American Mamma said...

Ahh, knitting and coffee and Barns and Noble, that sounds lovely. But like you, my days are filled with entertaining small boys which is lovely in its own way. That magazine looks like a lot of fun. I am sure I could get some ideas. Does it come with a radioactive spider to help me accomplish some of the crafts.

I'm the kind of girl who thinks an actual magazine is better than chocolate! It is a special treat to be devoured from cover to cover :) Thanks for sharing the opportunity!

Erin said...

Those flowers are wonderful!!! Can't wait to see how your scarf turns out...I made some fabric scarves last year (with minky backing) that would look great with one of those flowers on it!!

I love reading your blog and love your crafts. I like that your a 'real' person and tell it like it is.

You make me wish I could stay home rather than coming into work everyday.

I could totally use some mojo right now. I'm in a funk and I'm not feeling the Christmas spirit because it's our first year in Australia and this hot summer weather is the opposite of Christmas for me.

Amy said...

Relaxing with coffee & a magazine sounds delightful! Wonder when I can fit that in?

Kristin said...

I like your blog. I am making the donuts as I type!! I would love to get my hands on the magazine too!!!

Tracy said...

I just discovered your blog! Love it already! I'm a knitter too... although the 5 month old baby who loves attention is making that harder and harder to do lately... : )

Amy said...

How fun! I love hearing about new creative magazines. I get so much inspiration from them!!!

Love all the bright Christmas colors! Pre-kiddos, my husband and I ended almost every Friday night dinner out with a trip to B & N for coffee, conversation and magazine browsing :) Thanks to the train table in the kids section, we are still able to go occasionally with our son in tow.

angela said...

I said - ooohhh when I saw that cover. Looks like just the thing to curl up on the couch with a hot chocolate.

Janna said...

I totally love all the inspiration you give us;) THanks!! I'd love this mag!

Bethany said...

Before I read your post I had a scheduled "Friend date" with my best friend but we didn't know exactly what we were going to do. When I saw your post it gave me the idea to go to Barnes & Noble to read magazines and drink tea/coffee. Much needed stress reliever! I even was able to find that magazine and look through it, fantastic!
I adore your blog and the heart you have for the Lord and for your family. You inspire me!

Jessica said...

I have been married for three years now and I can finally make our own stockings, and anything crafty would be awesome to know. We are on a budget, and I just love handmade things!

I just found out my best friend is pregnant and I want to print out the letter you write in the post above and give it to her - would be so helpful!

Amy said...

Looks inspiring! :)
I'm actually thinking of you this evening. I just sewed monster patches on the knees of my 6 year olds jeans. My middle finger on my dominant hand is so sore from pushing/pulling that needle through the jeans! I am a sewing wimp! ;)

Susan said...

this looks like a great new one to get hold of - hope it comes to Oz.
