  16. Norma Orendorff says:

    Somerset Studio is scrumptious and inspires me to want to see more, and create of course.

  17. Pauli Smith says:

    I pinned Willow and Sage on my Pinterest site. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/417568196674933851/ I have yet to find a copy of this magazine in my area, but am seriously considering asking for a subscription for Christmas. It looks like it will have a ton of interesting and wonderful ideas that are just up my alley.

  18. Kelly Paquet says:

    My favorite this time is Artful Blogging, because of the beautiful photos and the topics which interest me, including knitting and crochet. I would like to learn how to make a blog of my own about my artwork and writing.

  19. Deb says:

    My daughter makes homemade soaps. I want to give her Willow & Sage for Christmas. She would LOVE IT! Personally, I love Altered Couture and GreenCraft. Ever since I was a little girl I have been told I always have “made something out of nothing”! I consider it a compliment!!

  20. Leigh Ann Hofferth says:

    I pinned the Where Women Create link – love that mag! http://www.pinterest.com/lahofferth/crafts/

  21. Donna Cohn says:

    Love the new Willow & Sage — it looks fantastic. I’ve been searching for it at my local bookstore but can’t seem to time it right. Pinned the cover to: http://www.pinterest.com/craftyclicker/inspired-miscellanea/

  22. Carolyn Williams says:

    http://www.pinterest.com/pin/433401164114907568/
    It is always hard to choose a favorite, but seeing where others create their beauty is a wonderful incentive to me.

  23. Liz Sirna says:

    I’d love to win the Willow and Sage to learn about making bath/body products and manly gifts for my husband.

  24. Luz Rubianes says:

    WHERE WOMEN CREATE is so inspirational. I can just see myself picking and pulling ideas from all of these extraordinary women. Oh how I would love to win! Pinned it on my pinterest board:Journal Inspirations. http://www.pinterest.com/2012ruby

  25. Nancy says:

    Love Willow and Sage. Being able to create products that are simple and pure is wonderful. My other favorite is Where Women Create. I’m always inspired by each one.

  26. Renee Zarate says:

    The new Willow & Sage looks fascinating! I pinned that to my board: http://www.pinterest.com/rezarate/stampington/

  27. anne says:

    Love the mouse pads now pinned to my pinterest board fiber arts.

  28. Barbara Moore says:

    I pinned “Green Craft” on Pinterest. I usually buy Somerset Studio but thought I would try a new magazine from you if I win.

  29. cindy coven says:

    Willow and Sage is my favorite mag! There’s nothing like it on the market. Just shared it with my Herb Society of America Rocky Mountain chapter. Thanks for a great mag.

  30. Robin Z says:

    Fun stuff!

  31. ruby t says:

    I would love to delve into the pages of Where Women Create as the spread shown is so colorful and I want to see Anne Maria Horner’s feature.

  32. Donna Kalinowsky says:

    My favorite magazine is Somerset Studio because I like paper crafts and mixed media but since I already have the November issue, if I win, I’d like to try your Green Craft magazine. The glimpse you have of the magazine on your website is intriguing. It could become a new favorite because who doesn’t have items to recycle or transform into something new. What fun!

  33. Sandra H. says:

    I love Somerset Studio and this issue has some great looking projects in the preview so I pinned it!

  34. Carol N. says:

    I’m always between these two options: Where women create and Willow Sage. But if I’m pushed to choose only one, I think this month I’d opt for Willow Sage, because homemade beauty products are a recent discovery in our family and Willow Sage magazine reminds me the great moments I’ve had with my youngest daughter since she was 9 (now she’s 11) preparing bath salts, soap, creams, face scrub or homemade perfumes. It’s more like her discovery, in fact, but both of us enjoy being together making these things and sharing the results with the rest of the family. Those are great moments! I don’t know exactly how to express it, maybe it’s a sensation of feeling cozier than ever at home. So, Willow Sage.

  35. Tracey M. says:

    Wow! All of the new publications look great, but Altered Couture is jumping out at me. Military, steampunk & tunics in one issue looks too good to resist.

  36. Susan F. says:

    Love the Willow & Sage spread. Artful Blogging is one of my favorite publications.

  37. Julie Vanderheide says:

    Willow and Sage is wonderful. Thanks for all the great ideas.

  38. Susan C. says:

    Waste not, want not!

  39. Misty says:

    I have not yet had the opportunity to peruse Willow and Sage. The layout looks inviting. I may have buy myself the green raft since the coupon expires same time as the contest! Wink wink

  40. Tineke says:

    The browns and the lace ofWillow and sage caught my eye… so cosy and wintery!

  41. I love “Where Women Create”! I always enjoy seeing how each artist’s unique character is translated into her creative environment, and it inspires me to continue working on my own studio.

  42. carolyn baker says:

    I’ve been reading your magazines for 15+ years. They are all beautiful! My favorites are Altered, Somerset Place, Art Dolls, Jewelry Affaire and Digital Studio. If I could afford them, I would buy them all and have a Stampington Publications library. There is always something wonderful to learn and try in every issue!

  43. Laura Kremmel says:

    I liked the Somerset Studio issue on Facebook, but I don’t know how to tag you in it! I love altered books and book making!

  44. Lynn says:

    Where Women Create http://www.pinterest.com/la2free/create/
    Great sewing places!
