Sweet Living Magazine: E-mag with a cup of tea

27 Apr

I love online e-mags. They provide lots of inspiration that you can’t find easily on the net. Sweet Living Magazine happens to be a very inspiring virtual publication that promises to give you lots of cool ideas. It’s new & it’s free!

Issue 3 of Sweet Living is out. And it’s full of inspiration & ideas.  Click here to read the issuu version. I particularly loved the homemade ice-cream recipes  provided by the readers at the beginning of the mag. And I love the heart sachet (In the pic above – L).

And to view issue 2 of Sweet Living, click here.

On  their blog, SL offer nice crafty ideas. Here’s one I really loved: A doll garland. Sweet, right?

I just can’t get over this Little chick tutorial! For full tutorial,  go to Petite Purls. SO CUTE!

I leave you with these lovely color palettes & inspirations, wishing you all a very lovely Friday.

With Color,




Inspiration Board: Anthology e-mag & a mug of dark hot chocolate

8 Dec

Are you in the mood for a big dose of inspiration? Well, I have the right e-mag for you. I just finished flipping through Anthology’s Holiday 2011 special issue, and I found two things I was looking for, two tutorials for stenciling on fabric/felt. Before you go ahead and click on the link below, a hot cup of dark chocolate is most recommended with this “cuddly” mag!

If you feel the urge to flip through the pages of this amazing e-zine, then click here for a triple dose of truly inspiring ideas – for anything from handmade crafts, to jewelry-making (Bits & Baubles, P36). It is truly a place for “Living with substance and style” –  especially that the magazine has a strong stance towards everything “handmade.”

As mentioned on their blog, “The Anthology Winter Gift Guide is packed with DIY projects, holiday decorating ideas, gift recommendations from guest contributors, a few of our regular columns from the print edition, and so much more.” You can read the full preview about the Holiday Issue on Anthology’s blog over here.

The tutorials I spoke about in the beginning of this post are so superb. I learned a “few tips on how to make homemade gifts from artists and designers like Lotta Jansdotter and Eunice and Sabrina Moyle of Hello! Lucky.” And I am telling you, both tutorials are the best I have read so far about stenciling and painting on fabric.

Lotta’s free-downloadable stencil-template tutorial (Case Study, P62) was so much easy for me to understand, and I felt that all my stenciling fears are a thing of the past now… seriously.

Surprise, surprise!

Oh, my! I just found out a peek-link into a previous Anthology issue, here. For a more elaborate preview, go to Anthology’s blog here.

Are you a crafter? Then you must appreciate any new resource that comes your way like I do. I found a few resources that I hope you enjoy as much as I do:
  • Craft Council – Canada
  • Craft Council – UK: This website can get you to the home pages of artists in many artistic fields, just go to the “Craft Directory” and you’ll get a pretty beautiful picture of other crafters work
  • Craft Victoria
  • Craft Council of British Colombia… offers a directory of many crafters and artists that you can find here.
  • I love this website!
