Holiday Crafts Magazine is on Shelves Now!

There I was, in the grocery store, minding my own business, when I spot this near the check stand.

Holiday Crafts Magazine - Crafty Staci 1

I did a double take, then used my cart as a battering ram a little to get to it.  I grabbed a copy, flipped through it, but didn’t see my project anywhere.  I nearly cried.  Then I got a grip on myself, turned the pages from the front, instead of the back as is my habit, until I arrived on page 12.

There, in all it’s felt and jute glory, was my Witch’s Clothesline project!  I seriously considered stopping strangers to tell them about it.  I think I even looked up and scanned the building to see if there was anyone there I knew.  No such luck, so I snapped a couple of photos on my phone and sent them to my husband.

I was, and still am, probably unreasonably excited about this.  They even spelled my weird name correctly.

Here’s the thing...this wouldn’t have happened without you.  I can make things and write about it all day, but without anyone reading it on the other end, I’m just talking to myself.  So, I’d like to share a little of my excitement with you. 

I bought an extra copy, which I’d like to send to one of you.  Leave a comment here between now and midnight on Sunday, August 18, 2013.  Tell me about something you’ve made, let me know where you follow me, or just say hello.  On Monday morning, I’ll randomly draw a winner and I’ll send that person a copy of my new favorite magazine.  Thank you for reading!
