Happy Friday! Congrats for making it through another week at work - it's nearly the freakin' weekend!
This month I've been bursting with pride to see my work on the pages of not one but three current magazines in the shops! I know I've been doing this full-time for a year now, but I still feel giddy when I get asked to send products for magazine shoots!
I've talked a lot about the special edition The Big Comic Relief Crafternoon, which features an amazing four page spread for my little waterslide plate tutorial, but what I haven't had a chance to share yet is what an incredible difference your purchases of that magazine are going to make!
It's priced at £7.99 with £5 of every single sale going directly to Comic Relief! It's already raised LOTS of money, with copies flying off the shelves in every store quicker than you could believe!
Here's what that money can pay for:
- Each £5 can buy two malaria nets and save two children's lives.
- £20 can run a preventative workshop in the UK on cyber bullying
- £30 could pay for a coach to hold a sports session for young people in a deprived area of the UK
- £50 could pay for a girl living in a Kenyan slum to do an apprenticeship and gain vital, life-changing skills.
So if you haven't already purchased yourself a copy, what are you waiting for? You can download one online via the various app stores or grab a physical copy in a number of Sainsburys stores. Every little purchase will make a BIG difference to real people's lives...
Also on the shelves this month is my feature & pull-out paper designs for Mollie Makes' 50th Issue. It was very exciting to be asked by the MM team to contribute, and the brief was super fun, plus looking at peoples posts on Instagram of my little papers has been really lovely! Especially as lots of people have been cutting them out & popping them on the wall, or even framing them! *Warm & fuzzy feels*.
Plus! Here's a cheeky little feature from Brides Magazine of my little wedding guest books! Very exciting times indeed!
Have a super ace weekend! Next week I'll be bringing you a pretty delicious healthy recipe and more biz talk amongst other lovely things so be sure to pop back bright and early on Monday!
