It’s Time for the CraftSanity Magazine Issue 7 Pre-order Preview Sale!!

Hello! I’m very happy to report that CraftSanity Magazine Issue 7 is at the printer and will be headed to newsstands and mailboxes next week! Pre-order your copy by July 16 and save a dollar off the cover price.

This issue is packed with summer craft ideas perfect for backyard fun with the kids and travel crafting, too.

Issue 7 features handmade stories and Q&As with some exceptionally talented artists and crafters who I hope will inspire you to have your own crafty adventure. This issue covers everything from knitting dolls and dahlias to crocheting lavender-filled pendants and making hula hoops. This issue also includes an all ages tutorial for a fast and fun fingerloop braiding technique that will streamline all your friendship bracelet-making for the rest of the summer.




We’ll also give you reason to fire up the water canner and get out those canning jars to whip up a batch of salsa or dilly beans. And if you want to make a party out of it, you can try out the fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade recipe, whip up some grilled pizza and cap things off with lavender shortbread cookies or some a sweet and mini chocolate chip cookie pies.

I continue to enjoy the adventure of working with an ever-changing line-up of talented contributors and I’m so grateful for their willingness to be part of this little magazine that I make late and night when most people are sleeping.

    I’ve been reading your blog for some time, liovng the ladies you’ve featured. I just listened to the podcast, it was great. I recently returned from visiting my 96 year old father in a rehab center after he broke his hip. While there I was actually thinking how cool it would be for you to visit some of the folks there. I saw so many people who were dressed as “old folks”…but I saw a few that were so delightful..a lady with a leopard collar she wore every night to dinner, and a man who wore a suit jacket every day when he went to meals. There was another lady who had hair the color of Ilona’s. I always made a point of telling her how great it looked. My own father wears his jeans, boots, vest, and cowboy hat every where he goes, and people always stop him to tell him how neat he looks. A fashion show in a nursing home would just be a lot of fun. Can’t wait for your book to come out!
