I don't know how many of you have already discovered this wonderful new publication but I thought I would share it just in case you hadn't. It is a collaboration between Stampington [ of the beautiful Somerset series of scrapbooking bookazines…] and Jo Packham, author of the classic book Where Women Create, a long time staple on many of our bookshelves I am sure.
I first read Where Women Create, the book, when I was just starting out in business and I can still remember the profound impact the book had on my desire to pursue my dream, to hone my vision and to generally be inspired by the women portrayed in the book. Today, many years later, its well used pages are still on my actual bookshelf as well as on my blog bookshelf below. It is still a book that I go back to for inspiration again and again.
I first met Jo a few years ago at one of the Quilt Markets when this wonderful magazine was still in the initial stages and I remember thinking that this newest Stampington brain child was sheer genius!
I mean who of us creative types doesn't want to see the design spaces of those who inspire us with their creativity and their art?
After giving us such beauties as Somerset Studio, Somerset Life, Sew Somerset, Artful Blogging…. just to name a few, I had no doubt that this newest venture would be enchanting! And of course, it has not disappointed…
A few of my favorites from the first issue are here below..
