We love inspiring all of you and empowering you to take risks in your home and do what you love. We love it even more when other women are inspired to do the same thing. One of things that is so fabulous about this DIY/Home Design blogging niche is how supportive it is and that bloggers genuinely want to see others succeed. Not to mention, home bloggers are sooooo generous about sharing ideas and projects with each other!
Amanda emailed us a few weeks ago. Who is Amanda, you ask? She and her business partner (and best friend!), Kelly, are wives and mothers who own their own business (Smart Blonde Creative) and manage to be creative and crafty in their spare time. Sound familiar? Yeah, we liked them right away. They were so inspired by the blogs they read on a daily basis, that they decided to use their graphic design and marketing talents to create an online magazine that is a source for easy and fun projects inspired by bloggers like us! The first publication goes live today!
We got an early peek at the magazine and immediately loved the bright colors, fun layouts and super on-trend chalkboard typography. Not only that, we are thrilled to be featured in a two-page spread!
This month’s premier issue features a super cute idea to make your own romantic dinner plates for Valentine’s Day…
…and an easy way to DIY a pillow cover with button detailing…
…and a host of awesome blogs you should be reading!
Every two months, Amanda and Kelly will bring you a round-up of their favorite projects and the women and blogs that gave them the inspiration. We hope you’ll take a peek at their first issue by going to Smart Blonde and Crafty RIGHT NOW. Then hop over to their site to learn even more about these awesome ladies, what projects they have going on and their goals for their new mag! And if you love it, tell your friends all about it.
