Congratulations to Shawn, whose number came up on random.org as the winner of the giveaway issue of Kindred. And thank you to everyone who commented!
As I mentioned last week, I have a little piece in Issue 5: Nest of Kindred Magazine. This is a beautifully arranged magazine, solid in the hand, one of substance both in appearance and content. I can’t wait to receive the latest issue. When I got a peek at my writing and photographs, the first word that came to mind was gorgeous.
It’s a stamp-carving tutorial, which ties in nicely with the next issue of Art Together (out in March), which is all about printmaking. It’s such a thrill to see one’s words and photos arranged so nicely in a print publication, and even better if someone is inspired to try carving their own stamp because of it.
Amanda has been generous enough to offer a copy to one of my readers (US only, due to shipping costs), and I really do encourage you to take advantage and leave a comment–just remember to include your email address in the email box, so I can get in touch with you. The work and care that go into creating the magazine makes it more than just idle reading material…it’s worth setting aside, making a cup of tea or coffee, and settling in for a quiet bit of reading. In other words, it is a treat and a respite, and you deserve that.
