Let me begin the week by telling you about my all
time favorite magazines. They were all so TADA!
but they've since shut down the doors of their
offices. I miss receiving them in my mail
box and flipping through their glossy,
mesmerizing pages. Such a blah.
Maybe they were your favorites too?
Domino was a hip, approachable decorating &
shopping magazine. I liked that the homes
featured in its pages were lived-in, filled with
pieces collected over time & brimming
They closed in 2009.
Gourmet was a trusted expert in food trends &
entertaining. I miss Editor-in-Chief Ruth Reichl
who's such a colorful personality.
The magazine ended its run in 2009.
ReadyMade was the little magazine that could.
It promoted the Do-It-Yourself movement
whether building a table or building a business
and the pride that comes with making things
with your hands.
June/July 2011 was their last issue.
She is a British Magazine with a long history
(it's been around since 1955), it's lively pages filled
with food, fashion, entertaining and decorating.
Whenever I bought it in London, it came with
freebies like a bag, cosmetic bag or paperback!
Yet again, another closing.
The last issue comes out this August.
News like this breaks my heart.
I know how much work editors &
contributors put into a magazine.
I hope that the talents that have
lost their jobs will or have moved on
to greater things.
As for us readers, I'm happy to note that
the number of on-line magazines are now
growing. All this week, I'll introduce
a new one to you (if you haven't made
their acquaintance yet).
Let's begin with Sweet Paul:
Born in the Spring of 2010 to Paul Lowe,
a food & prop stylist, crafter & blogger.
I love this magazine because of its cheerful
simplicity with a touch of whimsy.
It showcases easy recipes, simple crafts,
and wish-list worthy products for ladies,
moms, kids and even pets.
My favorite sections include "Keep
Your Eye On" (up & coming creatives),
with a memorable story attached to it.
Sweet Paul is also into crafty recycling!
Check it out...I think you'll like it. :-)
