I've long been a huge fan of the fabulous Australian zine, Mixtape, so rather than keeping it as my little secret, I thought it was about time I shared it!
It's a fabulously inspiring read, packed with articles about crafting and all sorts of other lovely things. According to the talented people who create it, it's 'a collision of craft, eco-cool and pop culture kitsch'. Mixtape's strapline sums it up brilliantly...it's all about 'making time for the small things'. As soon as my copy plops on to the doormat, I give myself a bit of time off with a mug of tea and read it from start to finish!
People from all over the world contribute to Mixtape, so there's always lots of interesting bits and bobs to read about (and it's interesting to know what other craft lovers are up to around the globe). It also makes me want to pack my bags, head for Australia and go and see for myself what their exciting craft scene's all about...there's certainly a lot of talent down under.
The next issue is due out on 22nd February and I'm very excited to report that a little piece I wrote all about the joy of buttons will be featured!
