This issue is packed with summer craft ideas perfect for backyard fun with the kids and travel crafting, too.
Issue 7 features handmade stories and Q&As with some exceptionally talented artists and crafters who I hope will inspire you to have your own crafty adventure. This issue covers everything from knitting dolls and dahlias to crocheting lavender-filled pendants and making hula hoops. This issue also includes an all ages tutorial for a fast and fun fingerloop braiding technique that will streamline all your friendship bracelet-making for the rest of the summer.
We'll also give you reason to fire up the water canner and get out those canning jars to whip up a batch of salsa or dilly beans. And if you want to make a party out of it, you can try out the fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade recipe, whip up some grilled pizza and cap things off with lavender shortbread cookies or some a sweet and mini chocolate chip cookie pies.
I continue to enjoy the adventure of working with an ever-changing line-up of talented contributors and I'm so grateful for their willingness to be part of this little magazine that I make late and night when most people are sleeping.
