INSPIRATION :: Autumn/Winter 2013 TOAST UK Catalogue

The November 2013 edition of the Autumn/Winter Toast UK catalogue (the House + Home and Women’s sections are all merged into one issue now) is stunning for its frozen lakes, tall pines, and slate mountains. These are all aspects of the natural world distinctly lacking in this corner of the world, and I especially miss them as Christmas approaches. Truthfully, I miss the way they look through windowpanes — with me remaining on the warm side — because I do so like to stay toasty. No pun intended.

Christmas Underwraps by Gina Munsey Illustrated by Munieca in Babiekins Magazine Issue 7

November started off with a bang — getting published in Babiekins Magazine! I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of such an amazing issue. Perhaps you’ve heard of them? The blog was recently named to Babble.com’s Top 50 Best Design Blogs for Moms, in the fashion category.

The newest issue is full of wintery goodness. My story, which is on pages 221-224, (Click on Table of Contents, then choose “Christmas Underwraps” from the third column) was delightfully illustrated by the talented Andrea Sardo of Munieca.

I hope you’ll check out this issue — it’s so fun!

November Photo a Day - Monthly Photography Challenge - Pear

Another fun thing this November — the Monthly Photo Challenge is in full swing again! Here’s the full list of November’s photography topics so you can jump in. During the last two challenges — June and August — I only managed 16 and 22 pictures. So maybe the third time’s a charm?

NaBloPoMo (bless you!), vintage rickrack, and yarn

this month, i’m joining a lot of other bloggers in national blog post month — that is, trying to blog at least once a day throughout november.  apparently, the cringe-worthy abbreviation for this event is NaBloPoMo.  this is not to be confused with NaNoWriMo, the novel-writing event.  let’s just say…i hope the folks who came up with that are better at crafting sentences than they are at inventing acronyms.

speaking of crafting, here’s a little snapshot of a current project involving yarn scraps and vintage rickrack.
