A Dream Come True: Mollie Makes

Ever since I devoured the first issue of Mollie Makes with its adorable knit apple cozies on the cover, I have dreamed of being on the beautifully matte pages of Mollie Makes.

How could I not be a fan of a magazine that covers making, thrifting, collecting and crafting all in one? Plus, it includes a mini kit to create project? Each month, I would hunt down the latest issue at my local book store.  (Because Mollie Makes started as a U.K.-based magazine, it was sometimes hard to find.) The cozy and rustic, yet hip and modern aesthetic of the magazine speaks to me – -no — sings to me!

So, it was literally a dream come true when one of the editors of  U.S. Edition of Mollie Makes contacted me. I jumped up and down with joy when I saw the e-mail.

I asked her how she found me, and she said it was from the Urban Craft Uprising website. I was a vendor for the Summer 2014 show. Several weeks later, I received the magazine in the mail (I’m now a subscriber :)  and quickly flipped the pages, spotting one of my heartfelt wreaths on page 40. Pictured along with items from West Elm and Anthropologie(!), the page is entitled Get the Look — Cozy Comfort.  Yes! I love that description for my wreath.

The wreath featured in the November 2014 issue  is now available as a DIY kit.

I supply the wreath form,  yarn and flowers and you assemble it yourself. A great option for a crafter or handmade lover. Or if you prefer you can buy the wreath already made here.
