i do believe tomorrow is the big day for Mollie Makes to appear Stateside, i say the wording 'i do believe' because my little memory recall has told me tomorrow is the day. if it is not then please do not be cross with me, be cross with my failing memory recall system.
i believe (another belief you may or may not wish to take notice of) the second issue will also be coming out in England at the same time. have i now confused you? so issue one will be out Stateside and i believe Europe, sorry Australia i have no believing to share with you or any other country who may be now looking to me and my 'font of all knowledge' which is drying up rapidly as i tippity type this.
so shall we recap.
issue one of Mollie Makes out Stateside and Europe quite possibly tomorrow (9th June) in Barnes & Nobles and Joanns. okay so obviously that is not in Europe, i have no idea what lovely shops will have it in Europe, just like i appear to have no idea what i am talking about this morning.
issue two will be on sale in UK also tomorrow (9th June) possibly :)
right, well i am sure that was all most helpful
i got my little mitts on a copy a few weeks back, kindly sent to me. alas my mother like so many others in old blighty has yet to get her mitts on a copy of issue one. this kind of makes me a little sad to think my first ever proper interview in a UK mag and my lovely mother has missed out on seeing it.
for all i know she may wish to cut it out, get out her little glue stick and stick it in a scrap book. having visualized my mother at her kitchen table, weeping at the big empty page in her old Woolworth's scrap book i have been left with no alternative but to leave the shed tomorrow morning and believe in all my believing and hunt down a copy Stateside. when said copy has been hunted i will happily pay way more than the UK price because after all this is my mother we are talking about and then i will place it in my luggage and fly the magazine back over to England so my mother can dry her tears, put away her cotton hankie, get out her little glue stick and fill her empty scrap book page.
yes that is what i will do dearest readers.
"so what do you think of Mollie Makes then Tif?" i hear you ask, which is really handy cause i needed someone to ask me so i could continue with my waffle.
well since you asked so nicely... i like it, i like it a whole lot. it has filled a gaping big hole so obvious upon the magazine shelves and i think they have done a spiffy job of it. a lifestyle magazine for us crafty loving souls. i was chuffed to see they used the tag line 'living and loving handmade', it was one of several i offered to them and i think this one fits the magazine perfectly perfect.
every page has something to inspire those rusty dusty creative cogs, i have to admit many of the folks and their wonderful work i already knew about, but then again i live in the crafty cyber world so that is not surprising. the magazine is sprinkled with quality how-tos, including two by my lovely friend Lola. i noted her contributor photo was totally peachy and had me wanting to be her right then and there. i noted mine was somewhat lacking on the peachy front but you do get a nice shot from my shoulders to my knee caps in denim overalls :)
several pages caused me to gasp 'thee gasp' and i felt a stirring in my crafty heart and an itching in my crafty hands to create. surely right there shows how well they did at putting their first issue together.
if you love inspiring creative blogs and on many an occasion have wished to hold them in your hands to pour over with a nice cup of tea, then i do believe you will love a ganders at Mollie Makes. they have a subscription offer for overseas, however i have yet to commit, i would love to but oversea subscriptions even with discounts are a big money commitment. i am on the fence, i am teetering in my clogs and i so want to just go for it, jump off that fence in my clogs and land with a smile and happy feeling of spending my money wisely and not with a twisted ankle because of jumping with clogs on. which will it be? gosh, i think the best thing to do, is wait until i have had a ganders at issue two before i commit. that is called being wise in clogs whilst balancing on a fence.
so all in all,
yes, i like Mollie Makes,
yes, i am most delighted to have had tea with them
yes, i will be out and about tomorrow in my clogs, 'believing' i will find a copy for my mother
she is thinking her and Leonard the Lens are not a match made in heaven ~ Tif
