might belong in the craft section too, but i had to tell you all how excited i am that i finally found a copy of this magazine! and they honored a 50% off coupon even if they weren't suppose to.. so instead of $5.99 i only paid $3 for it..: a gal i know at michael's called me to tell me it came in. they hadn't carried it before but i kept bugging them so they finally ordered it...hehe ::: now i know what you all are talking about when you talk about the magazine. it's awesome!!

YES!!! I just got my first copy last week after calling 6 or 7 stores.

I think I'm going to ask for a subscription for the holidays or my b-day ion March.

I'm making my 2 kiddos the hobby horse on the cover and the knit snowmen. Then, I think I'll eventually knit them some farm scapes

I just picked up a copy of Living Crafts at Michael's and I LOVE it. I am going to be starting in on a couple of the farm scapes right away- the apple tree and the sheep.

UGH - i so have to call my Michaels tomorrow and see if they have it!! I totally forgot this issue had more farm stuff in it!
catballou24's Avatar catballou24 02:53 AM 11-30-2008
definitely doing the snowmen for the girls and then after the holidays starting the farm stuff. they have a wood barn and animals, so that will be perfect for them, even if it's just a few of the ones from this issue until i can actually knit a full playmat.. i'm just stoked on all of it....:

Since I can't knit (yet!), I handed my copy over to my sister so that she could work on a farm play mat for my little ones as their joint Christmas present. I am so excited about it!!

I scored my copy on Black Friday with a 50% off coupon. I really need to subscribe.

I kept seeing it written about and found one at Joann's yesterday. NOW I GET IT! I want to do every project in there!!! Definitely want a subscription and I will definitely be saving the magazines for future use! Those farm scapes are adorable!!! And I like that they promote some familiar and awesome etsy stores.

I finally had to subscribe to this since I could never find it! I am so glad I did- this magazine is awesome!

I was thrilled to finally find it too (after trying several book and craft stores!)

I Love it and can't wait to get started on some projects. I asked my IL's for a subscription for Christmas.

Do the magazines have those subscription cards in them - and if so do they offer a better deal on a subscription than through amazon?
catballou24's Avatar catballou24 05:08 PM 12-10-2008

aliah79's Avatar aliah79 05:29 PM 12-10-2008

It really is a great magazine.
JoyAnne's Avatar JoyAnne 11:56 PM 12-10-2008
I love the "craft a story" feature- so inspiring- and so does my son! He looks for it right away now and was so sad the winter issue didn't have one- although he is happy to keep having the hedgehog story for a while longer!
